Dinner in 30 - Pork Style

I was so tired after work tonight and did not want to deal with the hassle of cooking at all! I just wanted to relax and watch TV but felt guilty since I’ve been eating out a lot. Luckily for me, I stumbled upon this good deal on organic pork at Trader Joe’s and was able to save a few bucks on making a quick meal. This is something you can have form start to finish in 30 minutes – including prep time! Just season the pork and broil for 20 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees and you’re set to go. Next time when you don’t feel like pulling a Martha Stewart for dinner, do this instead.

The thing I miss most about Costco is their affordable giant chunk of Ahi Tuna. After eating so much meat lately, I needed fish to cleanse my pallet. Because my local grocery shop often times closes the fish market before I get off work and leave me with just red meat options, I had to jump on this opportunity to buy it – even if it was way too expensive!

After salting your fish lightly with Kosher salt, add on some butter mixed with wasabi and cover with slices of ginger. This will add a real kick to the taste. Pair it with warm soba noodles and you’ve got an entire meal under 15 minutes!

Chicken Fever

What is it about organic, free range, non-antibiotics chicken that I love so much? I crave it all day long. I can’t stop buying it even though it costs more than my hourly wage! I just love the thick, juicy meat. Pan fried with bread crumbs or broiled with rosemary and lime, either way, you have something awesome! Here are a few dishes I made recently with my retirement savings.

P.S. for some reason I am deadly afraid of buying any other kind of chicken – apparently some guy started to grow boobs from eating too much hormone-injected chicken breasts. …..
