How can I be sad when I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Somehow we seem to have both too many and not enough leftovers in the fridge. So, this past week had some quick meals and side dishes to accompany the leftovers.

Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Sauce, Spinach, and Walnuts from Budget Bytes

Man what a long name for a recipe. It's pretty self explanatory though. Aldi had shrimp and crab ravioli so I decided to try it out with this recipe. It's good, but really not that seafood-y. We also threw chives in this. It was an incredibly easy meal to make, so it's good for a weeknight.


Chili Roasted Sweet Potatoes from Budget Bytes

Beth paired this with the cilantro lime drumsticks, and since I also had a couple of sweet potatoes I needed to use up, I figured I'd do the same thing. Roasted sweet potatoes are always delicious.

This meal lacked veggies ):


Roasted Heirloom Carrots with Feta, Truffle, and Lemon Zest from Skinnytaste

Except we didn't use truffle oil and I'm pretty sure those are just regular carrots. We just have a lot of carrots in the fridge since I bought them from Aldi, and you have to buy a whole bag of them.

Yes, we're still finishing up those drumsticks and potatoes.

This was surprisingly good. I think we'll roast more carrots tomorrow.
