Strange But Good~It’s In The Bag

I love the whole idea of Strange But Good that Laura has created at Sprint 2 The Table.  I don’t think my food is strange, but I know there are others who sure have big question marks on their faces when I eat out with them!  At home it’s usually just Ralph and Me so I’m safe…he just cares that I’m satisfied and get enough protein.  I’m doing well in that capacity!

So here we go…

Sprint 2 the Table

Don’t you love Laura’s logo?  I do!

So, I was whining that I was out of veggies.  Wednesday I made the trek to the produce market to stock up.  I was proud that I was in control and didn’t over buy, which I tend to do when I go for produce.  I made good choices, calculating what I had room for and what would go with what. I do over buy sometimes and then have to grumble for 45 minutes while I try to arrange the fridge so I can get the door closed!

One cool thing I found and the basis of Strange But Good is this…


California Slaw.  I’m pretty sure that the intention for this product is to be made into a salad type of dish.  No, No…not at my house!  Besides the slaw type pieces there were wonderful chunks of fresh broccoli florets.  I also found some broccoli florets in the freezer which I also added in.

Of course, I started with onions and garlic.  Then I added cabbage, veggie broth and cottage cheese for protein.  With sufficiently warm veggie broth, I added three-quarters of a cup of dry couscous, my new save a step trick.





Topped with a little grated Romano cheese that I found for an absolute steal at the produce market!  Boy was I excited about that.

So that’s Strange But Good for today.  Someday I should do a Strange But Good Covered in Cheese edition, but for today, this is what you get.  Be sure to check out the other linkers over at Sprint 2 The Table and Leave some comments!

Happy Friday!! Just ’cause it’s Strange doesn’t mean it isn’t Good!!

  1. haha, yes! cheese is one of those things that you can add to SO many dishes and they immediately become just that much better! i’d love to see your strange but covered in cheese edition, fran!
    have a great friday!

  2. I absolutely love your strange but good salads. The ingredients looks good… but my favorite still is that you have to eat them in a pie dish.

  3. I bought the same veggie slaw mix last week and i used it up in a stir fry
    so good, easy and it doesn’t need to be a cold salad!
    That dish looks so good too!

    Stay warm! It’s freezing here in Queens!

  4. That doesn’t seem strange to me (maybe b/c I’m from CA!).

  5. Love the big veggie platter, and I love how Ralph worries about your protein. As a vegetarian myself, that always seems to be everyone’s first and primary concern.
