In the spirit of cultivating my culinary skills:

Mama’s Lil Peppers (from New Seasons Market anitpasto bar)
Balsamic-marinated cippolini onions (also from NSM antipasto bar)
Hazelnut & Panko crusted chicken breast
Black pepper, chili flakes, TJ’s chili sauce
Balsamic vinegar & olive oil
Sister’s Mexican Night In
Nora and I had an avocado in danger of going bad…which inspired our Wednesday night supper
Note: I would have made Khushboo’s tantalizing looking Pesto-cado; but I had mistakenly thought I needed a blender prior to re-checking the recipe. Next time.

How often do you cook versus eating out/take-out?
And to those of you in the workforce, how do you prevent yourself from dining out/purchasing food on your lunch/dinner breaks?
PS: My sister, Nora is in the midst of starting a blog- once it’s up and running, I will link up- she’s got some wicked ideas up her (Zac Posen-designed) sleeve.
