D. and I recently went to Austin, Texas, and talk about a fabulous city. More posts on that coming soon, but this meal came right after we landed in rainy San Diego. We'd spent days eating out and didn't want to spend anymore money, but were tired after a long day spent in the airport and a delayed flight. What to do?

A quick survey of our freezer yielded a package of Trader Joe's Gnocchi Alla Sorrentina and the fridge was full of veggies from our new CSA (Be Wise Ranch). Chopped garlic, onions, and Swiss chard made a great addition to the gnocchi. The package calls for a little water while it cooks/thaws in the pan, so I added a few spoonfuls of homemade turkey stock. The gnocchi is quite decent for a frozen product and is one of the standouts in Trader Joe's frozen food offerings.

Mmm, great minds think alike, I found myself raiding trader joes for easy quick ideas and came up with soba noodles this week.

Jenny- Haha, the funny thing was that after I saw your post, I saw the soba noodles at Trader Joe's. It's a great place, isn't it?
