As I mentioned in my last post, having cooked rice, beans and sauces on hand enables me to throw together fast meals. Roasted Garlic Marinara and a bit of stock created a delicious sauce in this dish. I used cooked rice and as you can see, it got a bit mushy. If you like a more al dente grain, you can cook the rice and the dish will still be done in 30 minutes.

I'm also going to train my dog Jorda to use the treadmill! She is so sensitive to salt and cold weather. She's going totally stir crazy, but when I take her out for a walk she gets too cold and her feet hurt, so she begs to go back home. Does anyone here have any booties they recommend? We have not had lucky with any of them staying on her feet.

I just had the best green smoothie. Organic spinach, banana, chia seeds, chickpeas, cinnamon and ginger. Oh yeah!
What are your thoughts about Wal Mart and food? It's interesting because their prices are generally MORE expensive than Market Basket. Much more.. especially their produce. I can get a HUGE bunch of collards at MB for $2.29. At WM, a much smaller ( and wilted ) bunch was $3.75!
It pays so much to shop around and compare prices.
