Hiked to the bakery this afternoon with Country Living in hand. Killing two birds with one stone!
Love that magazine. Everything is so …country chic! Lots of inspiration.
Whilst there I tried our brand new Spinach Feta bread and had two clementines that I brought in my pocket. Trying to not eat so many cookies while I’m there!
My walk back was cold and dark, but also very pleasant. I love walking and I am so thankful I do not live 70 miles from my workplace anymore.
Tonight’s dinner was a bit random, but totally delicious. I roasted up a huge pan of MamaPea’s Cracklin’ Cauliflower (with potatoes mixed in!) and we ate it with Spinach Feta bread topped with lox, greek yogurt and capers.
Greek yogurt is good on an-y-thing!
And the Cracklin – just plain good.
Note the extra yogurt + sriracha for dipping!!!
I’m on a hot-tea-at-9pm-with-TV kick. Time to enjoy!
Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries says
Mmmm I LOVE lox, cream cheese (Greek yogurt is a great substitute too), and capers on toast or bagels! We always have them as part of our Christmas Day brunch, but I never think of making them for normal meals – I need to!
kristen @ verbs and vignettes says
those potatoes and cauliflower look divine. i miss lox a lot sometimes (after going vegetarian), but i’m sure i could find something else to go with that greek yogurt. 🙂
i’m glad you had a nice walk, even if it wasn’t perfect! i miss being outside more and more the earlier the sun sets…
Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon says
LOVE greek yogurt on toast! Especially with jam underneath or salty pistachios on top!
kathleen @ the daily crumb says
yum! i’m on a major cauliflower kick lately. my current favorite is mashed with a bit of butter and tons of herbs. totally delish.
loving nighttime tea as well 🙂
Health Bee says
Love the clementine hats. 🙂 I agree, greek yogurt is delicious, especially with lox. yum.
Yummmy! I love all these things but no my diet will change found out im allergic to 35+ different foods
Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious says
The bakery looks adorable. We have also been eating lots of cauliflower. Your dinner looks great! Enjoy your 9pm TV and tea.
Katie @ Peace Love and Oats says
That looks like a good dinner to me! I’ve actually been craving lox this week, I need to pick some up!
Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife says
I love Greek yogurt on almost anything!! So yummy.
You’re lucky you live within walking distance to work–so cool.
J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
Your dinner photos came out so well!
lynda @ healthy hoboken girl says

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says
I need to buy cauliflower…it’s been awhile and that looks so good!
katie @KatieDid says
yum. and enjoy your evening sounds quite relaxing.
Lauren @ Vaguely Vegan says
Oo…may have to go grab that issue of Country Living to find out what those gorgeous antique’y looking utensils are all about. Love those! And Spinach and Feta together is heaven no matter what form! I can imagine that bread is awesome.
Lindsay @ Running the Windy City says
You’re right, greek yogurt does taste good on everything! My favorite non-traditional use is on top of a grain/bean dish with hot sauce. Such a good combination!
Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel says
You have spinach feta bread?? Oh YUM. I love feta (and spinach, while we’re at it).
[email protected] healthy helper blog! says
I love capers with salmon!! That dinner looks delish! Although anytime roasted veggies are involved…its bound to be!
Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles says
My husband and I both agree that MamaPea’s Cauliflower Cracklin’ looks amazing! We love curry flavours…I think sweet potatoe or squash would also make it divine!
Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says
Glad you live closer to your workplace, too. Commuting as little as possible frees up SO many hours in the day!
The pics are especially pretty in this post of your food…I hope you submitted them 🙂
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
I want to like lox. I keep trying but it just hasn’t happened yet. It looks so good though!
Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles says
Country living and tea>?!!?? You are on a roll! 🙂 Awesome!
Clare @ SweetnSimple says
Have to agree – greek yoghurt is good with anything! Lox sounds beautiful, haven’t tried it before 🙂
[email protected] says
I so agree that g.yogurt is good on anything too! Just had it with chili 🙂
this might sound weird…i dont mean it to sound odd at all! but…i want to come to your house for dinner one night! this looks like the most deeelicious dinner…its kind of unconventional which makes it even better! haha just had to throw that out there 🙂
Where do you live!?
unfortunately really far away in ohio 🙁 im going to kent state university right now studying dietetics..if ONLY ohio was close to virginia!!
~Christy @ wonderofallthings says
Love sriacha (but always have trouble spelling it!)! YUM!
Lindsay @ biking before bed says
I can’t remember the last time I had lox! I normally eat it with cream cheese but greek yogurt sounds awesome. And so jealous of your quick work commute. It is my dream to be able to bike to work one day.
Molly @ RDexposed says
I keep meaning to make her cauliflower!
Lisa (bakebikeblog) says
such a vibrant dish!
The cauliflower and potatoes look excellent!
Lena @Fit on the Rocks says
70 miles from home?! Goodness, I’m glad you don’t live that far from work because that sounds awful! The bread, on the other hand, sounds great!
Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl says
I just did Greek yogurt on my black bean enchiladas last night cuz I was out of sour cream. Worked great! (dinner looks great!)
Mama Pea says
So it tasted good not eaten off the floor? Maybe I’ll eliminate that step from the official process after all…
Actually I think the floor one tasted better!
I am so jealous of your commute. It takes me about 25 minutes to get to work, and at least 45 minutes to get to my graduate school campus. Ugh. I’m hoping that sometime in the near future I can cut it down to a distance that’s actually walkable!
Simply Life says
what a creative dinner idea!
Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous says
I got cauliflower from my CSA this week. I”m gonna have to try that!
Heather H says
Your food always looks amazing! I love anything with spinach & feta!
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
Yum! This looks fantastic! I need to try that cauliflower 🙂
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
I love lox and cream cheese on a bagel! I’m not a fan of capers though. Blech! I always end up picking them off. 😛
Madeline - Greens and Jeans says
My mom makes the most delicious croutons EVER from GH spinach feta bread!
Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
Those potatoes and cauliflower looks delicious! Such a great dinner! I want to try it! 🙂
The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh says
Oh man that looks good and filling!
Cait's Plate says
Hot tea with 9pm TV sounds like an awesome kick to me! 🙂 And yes, not enough good can be said for a short commute! I’m with you!
[email protected] Broken Cookies Don't Count says
I need to try the cauliflower…sounds tasty and anything is better with a little sriracha sauce!!
I guess I am out of the loop… But what is sriracha? 🙂
It’s a spicy garlic sauce that’s used in Asian cooking a lot
Spinach feta bread -ummmmm
Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles says
I love lox & cauliflower! it’s been way too long since I’ve had either of them!
