So much food to share…so little time to write about it!!
I’m on a egg + toast kick. Is that surprising to you? It is to me. I think I have fallen out of love with oatmeal and I have no idea why or how! All of a sudden it’s more fun to have breakfasts with multiple parts to eat.
Did I tell you Matt made me a custom loaf of Irish Soda Bread? Boy was it good!!!
Served with scrambled eggs (shared with Mazen!) and some fruit salad
One one dark, dreary morning I had baked apples with greek yogurt, buckwheat and lots of sunbutter from a newly opened jar
I used Emily’s technique of putting a bag full of tiny apples, chopped into quarters, in my rice cooker along with 1/4 cup water and lots of cinnamon. They turned out AMAZING! Yes I know I could do this easily in the oven, the microwave or even the stove-top but it’s just so much more fun when the cooker does it for you.
I also ate them for a snack with coconut whipped cream.
I used Angela’s technique to whip up a chilled can of full fat coconut milk one night to serve over strawberries. INCREDIBLE!
Back to breakfast – more eggs, toast and fruit!
But I still manage to eat oatmeal at least once a week : ) Banana cottage cheese oats with sunflower butter on top. It was about time I opened another jar – it had been ages!
And my other love – French toast! Dakota bread with banana + chia seeds + sunbutter.
Workin’ through some quiche!
I made some for a party I hosted and ate the leftovers the next day. Served with salad, TJ’s Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus and avocado for M
Said party!! A moms group triple baby shower. 4 of our group members are expecting. AGAIN! Ahh!
My friend Jessica owns Indulge Gluten-Free Bakery here in town. Gluten and I are best friends, but who cares if this had gluten or not – it was delicious! Chocolate with raspberry buttercream. Jessica has some major talent!
Salads with leftovers are so easy for me to make while Mazen is underfoot. They take me 60 seconds to assemble and not much longer to eat.
Matt and I shared a smoked herring salad with hummus, cheese and blue corn chips on Sunday
This one was spinach with cottage cheese, hummus, leftover chicken and corn chips.
And this one was served as efficiently as possible in a greens container with sweet potato, chicken and almonds and a balsamic and oil drizzle for dressing.
Served with a different kind of corn chips!
This salad featured leftover pork from a dinner, sweet potato wedges, bleu cheese, greens, balsamic, leftover roasted veggies and chips. Theme of the week!
And finally, smoked trout (yum!!) with avocado, bleu cheese, veggies, spinach, balsamic + oil and chips. Lemonade-spiked water on the side.
I always seem to have a shortage of dinner photos – I have no idea why! I think because I skip taking photos when we’re out these days, like when we’re picnicking!
This one was fresh kale + mushroom quiche with cheesy crust and side salad
And this dinner was awesome – Keta salmon with green beans tossed in coconut oil and toasted Dakota bread with butter
And we had the stir-fry I mentioned in my Day in the Life post!
I honestly can’t remember what we had for dinner the other nights of the week – my mind is mush!
