Pantry Scroungin’

During our early evening walk with Sadie, Ryan and I realized we didn’t have anything on the horizon for dinner. Uh oh!

Time for some pantry scroungin’!

I wanted pasta (surprise, surprise) but Ryan was in the mood for chicken, so while he unloaded the dishwasher, I got work making two separate, but equally tasty dinners.

My dinner:

Clammy Pasta Bowl

Parmesan Cheese Fo' Me

My pasta bowl contained:

  • Carba Nada egg fettuccine noodles
  • Marinara meat sauce
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Broccoli
  • Clams

Ryan’s dinner:

Chicken with Red Beans and Rice

Ryan’s rice bowl included:

  • Brown rice
  • Kidney beans
  • Chicken strips

The million dollar question… Which dinner would you chooose?

  1. I’m going with number 1 – minus the broccoli. 🙂

  2. Haha! Definitely #1! 😉

  3. yum! your eats look so good. I found your blog through Shelley’s and can’t wait to keep reading!

  4. oh man! i love number 1..more veggies!

  5. That’s a tough one, they both look delicious. I would go for no.2 but would have to add some veggies to it. 🙂

  6. Can you tell me more about the carba Nada noodles you eat and love so much? Does your fiancé like them just as much? I have a very picky eater of a boyfriend so its hard to find stuff that he likes but suits my healthy eating too. Love your blog by the way!

    • hi holly! yes, ryan really likes them, too. they really don’t taste like low-carb pasta. they’re seriously amazing! i buy them from i buy bag & bags & bags!!!

  7. I’d prob go with 2 and add some hot sauce Haha

  8. I’d choose Ryan’s meal, which is a surprise because I’m usually a pasta-fanatic. BUT I just love the rice and beans combo! I’d probably throw some sour cream and guacamole in there too. YUM!

  9. I”m definitely a rice n’ beans kinda girl! 🙂

  10. I’d choose Ryan’s bowl! But if I could make some changes, I’d take the clams out of your dish and add the chicken from the other. I love the cheese and broccoli combo!
