Cooking at Home

We picked up groceries closer to home for the last week at Trader Joe's in Old Town Alexandria instead of driving all the way to Fairfax to Super H Mart. With TJ's more limited selection, I tend to cook less Asia-inspired meals and go back to my roots with regular American dishes. 
 Sausage, kale, mushroom and onion pasta bake with mozzarella cheese.
Made this on Sunday so we had a tasty dinner ready to reheat during the work week and leftovers to freeze.
 Calzones for Sunday football 
This was the first time I've made calzones in ages. With some refrigerated pizza dough from TJ's, super easy dinner to enjoy while watching the Redskins lose another week. Baking on parchment paper makes this super easy to clean up too.
 Calzone with kale, pepperoni, mushrooms, onion and cheese.
The husband was surprised that this was so tasty after starting from just dough and things. 
Vegetable soup with baked mini turkey meatballs.
Red peppers, kale, carrots, onion, celery and zucchini helped make the base of the soup.
