Looking to answer the age old question, “What’s for dinner?” Look no further. Tacoma Boys and H&L Produce has everything you need from the first bite to the last drop and everything in between! Let us help you plan dinner and the perfect pairs of dessert and drinks to go with it.
You would think the hardest part of getting dinner on the table would be slaving over a hot stove for hours, but alas, no. Ask anyone who’s in charge of the menu, and they’ll tell you. It’s choosing. It’s picking something easy, something fast, and something you haven’t already had twice in the last week (frozen buffalo wings, anyone?) And having options should make it easier, but the choice paralysis is real. The good news is, you can stroll into your nearest Tacoma Boys or H&L Produce any day and let the shelves speak to you. With so many options that will be ready in thirty minutes or less, you can have dinner on the table in no time!
If you’re less a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants shopper and prefer to have a plan, we don’t blame you! We’ve taken the guesswork out of it and done the planning for you. Here are some options for dinners and their perfect pairs of drinks and desserts you can come in and grab today!
Tacoma Boys’ Perfect Pairs to Try for Dinner Tonight
Dinner: Take & Bake Chicken Pesto Pizza
You seriously can’t go wrong with this amazing pesto pizza. Measuring in at 15 inches, this bad boy feeds the whole family. The pesto sauce keeps this pizza light, while grilled chicken makes it hearty enough to satisfy. If you’re on the lookout for something as easy as pie, this pizza pie’s the thing for you.
Drink: Silver City Kwik Stout (Mocha Milk Stout)
Why is it the perfect pair for pizza? Well, besides the fact that beer and pizza just go together, Silver City’s Mocha Milk Stout is a grown up drink with strong chocolate milk vibes. With notes of cacao, coffee, and vanilla, this milk stout goes down silky smooth. Bonus: Silver City Brewery lives in Washington! Grab a can from our beer aisle and get a taste of local craftsmanship.
Dessert: Eat PastryⓉ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Clearly we’re doing a throwback, laid back kind of night in, which calls for eating cookie dough right out of the tub. Eat Pastry’s dough is made without eggs (it’s completely vegan, actually), so you can break all the rules about not eating raw cookie dough. Be sure to save some of your milk stout to go with dessert for a cookies and milk combo.
Dinner: Chipotle & Lime Crusted Tilapia
Swing by our butcher for these pre-crusted fish fillets ready to cook! We do all of the seasoning for you. Just trust us on this one…you’ll love it. Simply fry lightly in oil and you’ve got yourself a delicious start. As a side, try our incredible sweet corn! It’s locally grown and deliciously juicy. Check out our weekly specials for a great deal on a half dozen this week!
Drink: Airfield Estates Sauvignon Blanc
You know fish pairs well with white wine, and Airfield Estates Sauvignon Blanc won’t disappoint! Dry with notes of lemon lime, this wine echoes the flavors of the fish perfectly. Plus, it scored 90 points from the Tasting Panel Magazine! Airfield Estates was founded by Washington natives and is located right here in Yakima Valley, so you’ll be supporting local business while enjoying a glass of excellent white wine.
Dessert: Ruby Jewel Lemon and Honey Lavender Ice Cream Sandwich
If you haven’t tried Ruby Jewel’s ice cream sandwiches, today’s the day! You will not regret it. Their Lemon and Honey Lavender is a surprising and refreshing combination. They’re perfect pairs with the bright flavors of dinner. From a Portland based small business, this sandwich boasts local honey and organic lavender. You can find Ruby Jewel Sandwiches in our frozen section. They’re enough to share…but we think you’ll want your own.
Dinner: Tacoma Boys Spicy Sicilian Spaghetti
Did you know we have our own pasta sauce? It’s true! For a quick and easy–but deceptively delicious–dinner, grab a jar of Tacoma Boys Spicy Sicilian pasta sauce. We have a multitude of pastas to choose from, but if you’re feeling wild, try Marella Farfalline Zebra pasta from our shelves. These fun bowties hail from Italy, and their black and white zebra stripes bring levity to an otherwise straightforward dish. If you’re craving a little extra protein, swing by our frozen section and grab a package of meatballs. Viola! Dinner in no time.
Drink: “The Vincent Red Board Track Racer 2017”
This red blend is a perfect complement to pasta. 60% cabernet, 25% merlot, and 15% malbec, it’s a well balanced wine with notes of cherry and raspberry. It hails from Mark Ryan Winery in Washington State, which has been acclaimed by local wine drinkers along with other experienced winemakers from the region.
Dessert: Chuckanut Bay New York Cheesecake
The folks at Chackunat Bay make their cheesecakes with real, all natural ingredients, and have produced a portion size perfect for one. Locally owned and family operated, Chuckanut bay operates out of Baine, Washington. Follow up your spaghetti with an individual cheesecake or share one big one, curl up with your glass of red wine and enjoy a relaxing evening in!
