You wanted Meatless Monday? I’m giving you Meatless Monday! And it’s so darn goooood.
Hey You! Happy Halloweeeeen! Please share with me if you’re going trick or treating? AND what are you going as?! My little ones are going as Shopkins and I’m going as Mother Shopkins. I have no idea if she exists, but she does now. I’m going to put on the pinkest dress that I can find on the racks at Party City today (yep, I will be shopping for a Halloween costume on the day OF Halloween…), the pinkest lipstick that I have, and the bluest eyeshadow that I can get at Walgreens, all while shopping for Halloween candy and decor…
I’m so bad. I know. I wait last minute (literally) for every.thing. At least I bought the costumes for my little girls 2 months ahead! That counts for something.
Onto things that I’m better at: making dinner! And, do I have a dinner recipe for you! Look at this skillet of pure comfort.
This is going to satisfy the carb-lover in your life, the veggie-lover, the cheese-lover, AND the protein-lover. I got you ALL covered.
ONE SKILLET GNOCCHI
Checkit. For this one skillet gnocchi recipe, I got me some gluten-free wheat-free gnocchi that were out-of-this-world-good. They’re by DeLallo and they are possibly the best I have had. Try to get those if you can.
One Skillet Gnocchi with Brussels Sprouts and Chickpeas
I added some brussels sprouts in here, too, because I love them little cabbages, but it’s also their season and that makes me super happy.
Chickpeas a.k.a. Garbanzo Beans also made their way in here, as well as tomatoes for extra juice and flavor.
Do you think I overdid it? Don’t think that! Just throw it all together and let it happen. The textures and flavors work really, really well together and you won’t be disappointed. It also makes an amazing side dish for company, or even just a Monday night dinner. If you have to have some real meat, throw in leftover diced chicken, reheat and eat!
Now, I seriously have to go because, I need to buy a Halloween costume, Halloween candy, aaaaand I have to pimp out the house before the trick or treaters get here!
Bye bye byyyye!
