This Lately post is a good round up of eats of meals enjoyed at home and away.
Mazen would like to demonstrate his new found taste for arugula! He helped me spin the greens and make a dressing and then next thing I knew he wanted to taste it. I was so proud!
Let’s eat some breakfast! First up is an egg sandwich with jam and almond butter. This is one of my favorite combos! The egg adds a hearty bit of protein to a typical AB&J. Peach and tea on the side!
Next up: pancake day! Mazen loves to stir the pancake batter, and it’s his current favorite breakfast. I topped my two cakes with drippy nut butter, peaches and chia seeds.
One morning when we all woke up too late and I needed something quickly digestible, I made a green smoothie with banana, spinach, milk, yogurt, chia and oats.
Can you tell I’m into peaches!? Peach + yogurt bowl with granola on top. A few blueberries snuck in too!
More pancakes…!! With almond butter and chia sprinkles.
First up – a working lunch. I took my computer to Paradox Pastry and had delicious Tuscan bean soup with a side salad.
Plus this awesome hot toddy cookie for dessert!! I did my best to eat 1/4 and saved the rest for the family : )
Up next was a leftover hamburger and salady things from Mazen’s birthday party. Bean salad on salad.
On this clearly dreary day I had a quesadilla with leftover refried beans and a salad on the side topped with red peppers and cheese bites.
I loved the egg muffins I made from the Feeding Baby cookbook! They were packed with broccoli, thyme and cheddar. Served with leftover rice and apple slices.
And finally, leftover meatballs served atop a salad with tortilla wedges on the side and some Everona Dairy Piedmont cheese.
First up were some leftovers Karen brought over – big curly noodles with a creamy chicken sauce. We added broccoli and cheese to turn it into a one-dish meal.
Tuesday was girls’ night out at Commonwealth!
Tricia and I split this beet and greens salad (love golden beets!)
And I had these awesome scallops served over a mushroom risotto for my entrée.
I had an easy dinner of leftovers the next night when Matt was out. A bunch of brown rice topped with shrimp curry from the freezer. A big dollop of Greek yogurt on top.
This dish was a Cook Smarts lamb and feta burger that I turned into meatballs (of course!) Served over greens with more feta cheese, it made for a great weeknight dinner.
And finally, another girls’ night after the Monticello event – tacos at a new friend’s house! (I actually only had one – this is Sarah’s plate but it was a lot prettier than mine!)
Mazen and Matt loved the refried beans I made for them before I went out!
What was the best meal you ate last week?
