Pan-fried polenta topped with oven-roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Accompanied by a side salad topped with Trader Joes Pear Champagne Vinagrette, and the last of the Almond Accents.
The last of the polenta, pan-fried, diced and served with Trader Joes Country Potatoes with Haricot Verts and Wild Mushrooms, and a big ole arugula salad.

Wednesdays I work 2-10pm, so I had lunch at home. I ate the last of some Trader Joes Falafel along with the rest of Tuesday's Country Potatoes. I also planned to oven roast a couple bags of brussels sprouts I found at the bottom of the freezer, but when I opened the bags, they were weirdly slimy, so I threw them out. Instead, I oven roasted a bag of broccoli florets I also found down there. I swear, the chest freezer is a black hole.
I realized that instead of eating a sandwich for lunch, I could make myself a wrap! People do that all the time, and I had a bag of tortillas languishing in the freezer from god knows when, so I wrapped up my sandwich in one of them. Brilliant! For dinner, I had a quesedilla, using up two more of the tortillas, the re-fried beans that have been hanging out in the cupboard forever, the last of a jar of salsa, some shredded cheese from an already opened bag and half a can of black olives. It was delicious, and I was pretty proud of myself.
Another wrap for lunch, and I am out of tortillas! Butternut squash soup along with roasted broccoli and couscous for dinner.
Out of town.
Purchases: butternut squash, salad, 1 cucumber.
