For some strange reason, we like to eat a large meal at about 2:30, especially on the weekends.
We call it Linner.
You know – lunch & dinner.
Typically, we eat breakfast at a normal time, before 8:00 and then we get busy, run errands, do yard work, or head out on day trips.
Linner is perfect for those days.
Tonight we’re headed to a movie, which would interrupt dinner, so Linner is just right. Then we can have popcorn and snacks for “dinner”.
See how that works? We’re grown-ups now so if we want to have Junior Mints and popcorn for dinner…so be it.
~Here’s What We Had For Linner~
Penne with Pesto
Bruschetta with Goat Gouda
Peach Tranquility Tea from Teavana
You can find my vegan pesto recipe here. I like to make a large batch of it and then freeze it in smaller batches to use whenever I like. You can find my bruschetta recipe here. It’s SO easy. This time I topped it with Trader Joe’s Goat Gouda. A-MAZING. If you can tolerate goat’s milk cheese and you haven’t tried it, it’s an absolute MUST. It’s delicious. It stays somewhat soft after broiling, the perfect texture. It’s not too “goaty”, it’s mild, creamy, I really can’t say enough good things about it.
We’re off to the movies. Hope you all are having a fabulous Saturday!
What a great idea. And every now and then it’s good to just break out of the routine and end up having mints and popcorn for dinner. I hope the movie was good xx
I’d enjoy this dish, April, no matter what it’s called. And i have to check out that goat cheese. It sounds wonderful. I also agree with you movie-going strategy. I’m the same way. By treating the movie snacks as a meal, I can enjoy myself with none of the guilt — so long as I don’t make 3 trips to the snack counter. 🙂
The cheese is SO good, you’ll love it. 🙂
