What We Ate 5/25/15 – 5/30/15

Hello again! Another week, another series of meals that we ate and enjoyed. This week was a bit hectic as we were mostly trying to finish all the frozen food/any food we could before we moved. I think we did a pretty good job, we might have left behind a few ice cream bars, which was a pretty sad parting, but that’s okay we will buy more for our new place.

Taco salad

Monday & Tuesday: Taco salad. This is one of our go to meals. It is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. We sautéed an onion, a pepper, and some ground turkey. Then put that on top of a bed of lettuce and added some tomatoes, corn, and beans. Yum! We also had some chips and salsa on the side because how can you not?

Veggie burger and brussels sprouts

Wednesday: Veggie burger with a Brussel sprout salad. You didn’t think we weren’t having any veggie burgers this week, did you? Well, we still had some in our freezer (I think we still have a box of unopened ones too….) so we made them to try and finish them off. We had a big salad with Brussel sprouts, an onion, and some zucchini as well. I also enjoyed some boom chicka poofs on the side as well.

Quesadilla

Thursday: Quesadilla with a Brussel sprout salad. Weird combination, but we had tortillas to eat and I was craving a big quesadilla so we put some cheese, salsa, corn, beans, and whatever else into them. We also had a package of Brussel sprouts and some leftover salad to eat so we through those together on the side. Nothing like a good quesadilla!

Brussel sprout salad

Friday: Brussel sprout salad and some chicken nuggets and apples. Yep, really trying to clean out the fridge at this point. We had leftover Brussel sprouts and broccoli so we whipped up a salad. We also had some nuggets that we had to eat so we shared those and I cut up an apple for good measure. Random but good!

Saturday: Salad from Sweet Greens. We both had leftover salads from lunch at Sweet Greens so we munched at that for dinner, which quickly turned into munching on popcorn and chocolate and wine for dessert!

What We Ate 3/29/15 – 3/4/15

Hello! We are back with another what we ate this week. Last week things got a bit hectic for us and we sadly weren’t the greatest at documenting what we ate. But, we are back this week with some yummy recipes we tried and enjoyed. Enjoy!

Turkey burger and fries

Sunday: Broccoli Rabe Turkey Burgers from Skinnytaste. These were sooo good! I don’t know if it was because it was sunny out and the birds were chirping and it just felt like the perfect spring day to have some burgers and fries, but this meal was perfect. We paired the burgers with some homemade french fries that we will post later!

Monday: Leftover turkey burgers. Still good!

Fiesta bowl

Tuesday: Fiesta Bowl with Mexican Rice. Oh Trader Joe’s how I love you even more that now that I have this recipe (if that’s even possible). This bowl was filled with a delicious pile of beans, rice, corn, avocado, and some beef. Yum!!

Cauliflower

Wednesday: Crispy Orange Cauliflower from Fork and Beans. We modified this recipe a bit because we didn’t want to fry it in oil. Instead we skipped the flour mixture and just made the sauce and baked that with the cauliflower in the oven. It turned out really well!

Thursday: Leftover fiesta bowls

Acai bowl

Friday: This was a bit of an odd day as I had a stomach ache so not much sounded good. I ended up with an acai bowl and Rose had some leftover turkey burger with a salad and fixings. Sometimes our meals become quite random..

pasta with broccoli

Saturday:Trader Joe’s Girasoli Ricotta & Lemon Zest. I don’t think I mentioned yet how much I’m loving T.Joe’s lately.. This pasta was delicious. We steamed some broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, and peas then tossed it all together with some lemon oil and salt and pepper. It really hit the spot!
