Prepared food to the rescue

As a mom who work full time outside of home, sometimes in the evening, I'm just too busy or too tired to cook.

At times like this, I would use my secret weapon - "prepared food". I buy my prepared food from Trader Joe's. They have the widest and best selection of prepared food, and the food is good too. One of my favourite is Chicken Serenada.

It is seasoned chicken breast meat with coco caribe sauce top with pablano peppers. I served it with basmati rice. Sometimes, I will roast asparagus to go with it. It is really delicious, cost half the price of take out and the portion is very generous for 2 people.

Nope, this is not a paid post.

Ann - you know, when I first moved here, I miss M'sia a lot since my family is still there. Now, even though my family is still there, I don't miss it that much. Just miss the FOOD!! :-)
