Lately: Last Week’s Eats

September 2, 2013

Lots to report on the food front! We stepped up our dinners a bit, and I also had a nice variety of breakfasts.

Hold on tight…



Apple Scrapple toast with sunbutter, coffee and a smoothie I made the day before with spinach, banana, milk and yogurt.

Foodblog-9348 Foodblog-9347

Yogurt, peach, granola and sunbutter.


Cooked figs, toast, egg, raspberry and banana + sunbutter. When I fry my egg, I just put lightly buttered toast and the figs in the pan with it (sometimes the banana or peaches too!) Takes breakfast to a whole new level.


This was a leftover serving of cooked oatmeal from last week (I ate it sooner rather than later). It was slightly heated in the microwave and topped with Greek yogurt, blackberries and granola. A different but delicious combo!




I woke up craving PB&J and had a sandwich on a Dakota hamburger bun with banana slices inside. So fun to chew.




Leftover squash and cheese frittata with fig, almond, avocado salad on the side. A hint of pimento cheese too!


Smoked salmon (Oak River from the freezer!) served over local arugula with tomatoes, peppers, avocado, balsamic and a sourdough roll that Matt made as a surprise


The next day: similar but different. Salmon with almonds and peppers and a hunk of Spinach Feta on the side


Lots and lots of salads! Lots of salmon. Caromont Farm Red Hook cheese. Bits of Spinach Feta (my current favorite savory bread at the bakery), greens, honey and dill.


And finally a non-salad day – Sardine salad with cucumber and herbs


With cantaloupe and sweet potato chips




Burger night! Free Union Grass Farm ground beef turned into burgers with some Garlic Gold nuggets and bread crumbs inside. Plus melted sharp cheddar, ketchup and fresh tomato. The sharp cheddar made the whole burger.


Burger and fries – okra fries!


Tofu night:


Roasted in the oven alongside some potatoes tossed in dried herbs de Provence and a mini “caprese” salad with cheddar, basil and oil + vinegar


Next up was pasta night. I picked up some fresh pasta as our Whole Foods. Pea tortellini and goat cheese ravioli and we served them with cooked eggplant and our homemade tomato sauce. Parmesan and fresh parsley on top.  Enjoyed in the company of Karen.


Winner winner chicken dinner! We enjoyed chicken legs with perfect brown rice made in the rice cooker (more herbs de Provence!) and leftover okra fries from a few nights before.

Yum! Looks like a delicious week!


2 Lauren @ The Highlands Life September 2, 2013 at 10:00 am

All of these meals look right up my alley. I loved that I just got a handful of meal ideas from this post! I need to hop on it.


3 Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries September 2, 2013 at 10:03 am

I’m so jealous of all the amazing breads you get from the bakery! I’d be in heaven every morning. Everything looks fantastic!


4 Janelle September 2, 2013 at 10:15 am

Yum! This is inspiring me to eat more salads for my lunches.


5 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! September 2, 2013 at 10:16 am

Gosh that herb tofu looks amazing! As does the sardine salad! I always like adding cucumbers to canned seafood salads! Great texture.


6 Sydney @ Trust the Skinny Cook September 2, 2013 at 10:29 am

Glad I’m not the only one who likes chunks of fresh bread in my salad! I wonder if our great harvest here in Lexington, ky makes spinach feta rolls too… They look delish!


7 Liz September 2, 2013 at 10:43 am

All looks delicious. Since I read your blog I crave things that I didn’t before. I used to crave oatmeal a LOT cause that what you had almost every day before the baby. Now I crave eggs for breakfast. And salmon for lunch. I blame you! 😉 Love your pics, healthy inspiring!

we have eaten figs like crazy this summer, but i’ve never thought to cook them. will have to try with our last harvest! those okra fries have me craving some okra as well. looks so delish!


9 Marcia @Frugal Healthy Simple September 2, 2013 at 11:10 am

Those salads look really good. I love salad. It’s not the greens season right now in So Cal (too hot). Lots of tomatoes though!


10 Emily @ Life on Food September 2, 2013 at 11:56 am

I was on a salmon binge for a while and now it has been weeks since my last sampling. This is the reminder I needed to get some more.


11 Alison @ Daily Moves and Grooves September 2, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Yum! I want to try every single one of your meals! But when have I not wanted to? 😉
Your dinners look especially delicious!


12 Bob September 2, 2013 at 1:30 pm

Was just reading a certain blog from Dallas. Will you be adding beer-ita to your menu soon?


13 [email protected] September 2, 2013 at 2:14 pm

Yumminess! See your still on a SunButter kick! Totally with you! Just tastes so amazing with…pretty much everything but especially peaches! :) That tofu looks great! Mine always puffs up like marshmallows when I bake it, did you only leave it in for a little bit?


14 KathEats September 2, 2013 at 2:33 pm

It is twin oaks brand…very dense


15 Chelsea @BigBitesLittleBudget September 2, 2013 at 2:39 pm

I love that you use whole and mostly local ingredients. Your meals always look delicious and give me inspiration to try some new ideas as well. Okra fries? Looks so fun!


16 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More September 2, 2013 at 3:58 pm

Everytime you make tofu it always looks SO good!


17 Robyn @thereallife_RD September 2, 2013 at 4:05 pm

I want that tofu dinner- can’t get enough of yukon golds lately!


18 Alex @ Kenzie Life September 2, 2013 at 4:20 pm

Every time you post a breakfast with the apple scrapple bread, I get really, really jealous that my local great harvest doesn’t make it!! At least not that I’ve seen :( It looks so good!!


19 jodea @ September 2, 2013 at 4:22 pm

I haven’t had okra in so long, you’ve inspired me.


20 Katie @ Balanced RD September 2, 2013 at 6:16 pm

That looks like a delicious week of food!! I am so jealous that you have a Whole Foods near you!!


21 Marissa @Barefoot Colorado September 2, 2013 at 7:13 pm

Mmmm! Your food always looks so yummy!


22 Mikael September 3, 2013 at 5:52 am

Hi Kath,

Beautiful arrangements and an abundance of natural light make for some tempting looking eats.

I’d love to know your method for melting that sharp cheddar onto the patty without losing the heat in the beef.


23 Alisha @ Alisha's Appetite September 3, 2013 at 9:50 am

Those burgers! Yummmm. What a mouth watering week of food. I love these posts for inspiration for my weekly eats!


24 Anna @ Fitness à la Anna September 3, 2013 at 2:07 pm

Wow, cooked figs! I would never have thought to do that…will definitely have to try it out!


25 Sue B. September 3, 2013 at 2:38 pm

Since you are on a herbes de Provence kick, you should try making Chicken with Provencal Sauce from Cooking Light magazine!! It is fun to make (who doesn’t love de-stressing by pounding chicken flat) and a definite crowd pleaser!! My kids love it!!


26 Kaci September 3, 2013 at 3:49 pm

After reading your BERF post about a year ago and waiting for your due date, I remembered that isn’t September 1 the KERF anniversary?


27 KathEats September 3, 2013 at 4:26 pm

Ahhhh you are RIGHT!!!!!!! I missed it. SIX YEARS!! (That’s half of 2+6!)


28 Kaci September 3, 2013 at 5:06 pm

I remember how you were hoping Mazen and KERF might share a “birthday.” It’s a week of celebration instead! Happy six years! : )
