We returned from the mountains late yesterday afternoon and I really.really.really did not want to go to the grocery store.
When I remembered that we had some frozen Chinese dishes from Trader Joe's in the freezer, I was one happy girl!
If you've ever been to a TJ's, you know that everything looks SO good and it could be tempting to bust your monthly grocery budget in one trip there. So I always love reading what fellow bloggers love to get there. I've been hearing for a while about their Mandarin chicken and we finally gave it a shot.
The chicken was delicious ... and easily prepared. I baked the chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet. I poured the sauce into a big glass bowl and stuck it right in the oven as well to warm it up. Once the chicken was done, I just slid it from the baking sheet to the glass bowl and tossed to coat.
We had it with a shrimp and veggie stir fry and steamed pork buns, all from Trader Joe's.
Pork buns are .... sighhhhh .... YUMMY. I ate two.
All three components of this meal were right around $10 total, and we had enough for two dinners and leftovers for my lunch today. Much less expensive than take-out and just as delicious!
