Food: Tjs and easy banana bread pudding

I had an empty fridge last weekend so a trip to Tjs was on the top of my to-do list on Monday. I had the intention to pick up just few things to “survive” until Thursday (my mom arrives! :lol:) but I ended up with two full bags and a lot of new items


One bag of veggies: two bags of salad greens, apples, eggs, yellow and orange peppers (love these!), mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, pearl tomatoes, broccoli, endive, cucumber, green peas and shredded cabbage.


and these: many of these are new to me and I’m excited to try them


This would be perfect for salad


old favorite to make tortilla pizza


my all time fav


I want to cook Thai at home (too)


I love hearts of palm, they are so delicate


Thai sauces


I haven’t had chicken for more than 6 months :shock:, surprisingly I want to have some now πŸ˜‰


I couldn’t wait to try to test the sauce. Saute veggies and tofu with some canola oil for few minutes


and this sauce


1/4 cup per serving according to the label


cooked some millet


I love the color of this meal


it was SOOOOOO TASTY!!! The sauce is exactly what I was looking for. It tastes gingery, coconut and a little spicy, very thai πŸ˜‰ I might add more red peppers next time because I want it to be really spicy!


I had four slices of this bread and 2 frozen bananas in the freezer for a while. For some reason I haven’t craved bread for breakfast the last two weeks. So I throw them together for a easy banana bread pudding.


Easy Banana Bread Pudding

  • 4 slices of WW bread
  • 2 large bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used Almond milk)


1. Cut breads into cubes.

2. Mash bananas with a spoon and add all the liquid ingredients

3. 1+2 and bake at 370F for 50 min




Really simple, right? But it was great! It’s naturally sweetened and perfect for someone who doesn’t have a sweet tooth. I made it on Monday afternoon and it’s all gone!!! πŸ˜†

Q: What was the last new grocery item you got and you love it?
