Shortcuts save dinner plans

Work demands kept me out of the kitchen this week — not such a bad thing, actually 😉 It was time to rely on shortcuts — fast recipes and favorite quasi-convenience foods.

Spinach salad with Kale-potato-sausage soup

Monday started out with a traditional long-cooking pot roast made quick in the pressure cooker. Next came one of my faves, a kale, potato and sausage soup starring Aidells sausage with roasted garlic and gruyere cheese.  The soup teamed up with a tasty and simple spinach salad recipe from PCC Natural Markets — a keeper for future meal plans.  Wednesday I left the guys with leftovers as I headed out to my monthly business dinner.  On Thursday Trader Joe’s save the day.  Here’s how it all played out:

Monday: Yankee pot roast; roast potatoes and turnips; steamed broccoli

Tuesday: Kale and potato soup with turkey sausage ; strawberry and spinach salad.

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Trader Joe’s carnitas and homemade flour tortillas; fresh guacamole; strawberry and spinach salad.
