So I gladly made my second trip in one day to Trader J's, and with Ceej's company, it was quite short and sweet treat.
I went with a list to make this stir fry noodle + homemade sauce dish and realized that with all of the ingredients I'd have to buy, I wouldn't be able to stretch our dollars very far. Not a prob- I opted for a pre-packaged veggie assortment and a jar of TJ's Red Curry sauce. Oh, and I bought tofu! I'm not really for or against tofu, and I really do enjoy those sesame tofu sticks they have in the Whole Foods deli section..Mmmmm.
After boiling the wheat pasta and pan grilling the tofu cubes, I added in the veggie mix of celery, broccoli, fresh ginger, and sugar snap peas.
Also popped in this DELICIOUS half load of garlic bread. OMG. I swear when I cut into that baked bread, the scent was overwhelming. And I didn't give a damn about the calorie count. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty the wheat noodles were with the curried tofu and vegetables. Not too shabby for bottled sauce!

(I also brewed up a small pot of Chicken Noodle soup for Ceej's tummy. I love multi-tasking!!)
It was a very lovely dinner at home.
