    Coupon Nana- thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed them. It's been so fun trying new recipes out... even my DH loves it (although I'm still adding chicken, fish or steak to his plate each day). We are both eating more greens and grains than we ever have, and feel fantastic! :-)

    Great video and recipes, Diana!

    Also, enjoyed your "Trader Joe's Vegetarian Haul + 2 Weeks of Dinner Meal Plans with Recipe Link"!

    I, too, am a TJ fan. Was introduced to TJ in NOVA years ago and was also happy to see them pop up in this area.

    Thanks so much for adding so many meals, menus, and ideas to my growing veggie life plan! Not 100% vegetarian; but, moving more and more in that direction.

    Very helpful!

    Is there link to that Roasted Brussels and Green Beans Pasta with Goat Cheese? That sounds out of this world good!

  • RaleighFoodBlogger Jul 24, 2014

    Nakabi- Sure! It was my first time trying roasted green beans, and it was so easy, and delicious! Last week I used some regular pasta, but this time I'm going to try some brown rice/quinoa pasta that I got from TJ (hoping it's OK).

    RFB-I must have missed that brussels & green beans/goat cheese; sounds delicious! care to share the recipe?
    Faye-I'll try to enjoy the pizza :) I'm not a huge pizza fan, especially when it comes from Little Caesars, but watching the kiddos on the stage will more than make up for it.

    We're doing pasta too! We loved the Roasted Brussels and Green Beans Pasta with Goat Cheese so much last week, I'm doing it again :-)

    jtlnsw - good luck with your creation! Let us know how it turns out.

    nakabi - enjoy the pizza. lol

    I had planned to have spaghetti and salad tonight so they could make something easy while I was teaching tonight, but my oldest begged for London Broil when she saw I bought one at HT yesterday. Sooo, London Broil will be going into the slow cooker in a bit and then they can enjoy that for dinner instead. Sides of rolls, salad and fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries and cherries.

    I want to try a new recipe. Mozzarella stuffed meatballs with fettuccine or something in that area. I'm sure with all of the boxes of pasta here, it'll come to me.
