What We Ate 7/19/15 – 7/24/15

Forgive us for the lack of posting lately. We have been spending most of our weekends on the Cape, soaking up the sun and waves the best we can. But we didn’t forget about you! We have some projects planned that we want to share shortly so don’t give up on us either! In the meantime, here is our usual what we ate the past week so you can sneak a peak into our daily food routines.

Spiralized carrot salad

Saturday: Spiralized carrot noodle salad. We recently bough a spiralizer so it has been nothing but zoodles all day every day. We made this easy and quick salad by spiralizing a carrot over a pile of leaves and then adding some other veggies and toppings.

Indian chickpea and vegetable soup

Monday: Indian chickpea and vegetable soup. Don’t ask why soup sounded good when it has been a heatwave here recently, but it was what we were craving. We had made a similar soup before but couldn’t find the magazine the recipe was in so we found this one instead. It was easy and quite delicious! And spicy! We added some potatoes to it because why not.

Brussels sprouts salad with walnut sauce

Tuesday: Roasted Brussels sprouts salad with walnut sauce from Veggie Primer. Yum this meal was delicious! The walnut sauce was the best part of the whole dish. I could (and did) eat that sauce on everything!

Wednesday: Leftover Indian chickpea soup. Gotta love having leftovers!

barley mango salad

Thursday: Barley mango salad with avocado yogurt dressing from Running to the Kitchen. We bought some watercress at the beginning of the week, but unfortunately it went bad before we made this salad…  which was a bummer but the salad still tasted good with some romaine under it. I was loving the alfafa sprouts!

Friday: Whole Foods! Friday was a rush and we had very little food in our house so we ended up getting some hot food to go at Whole Foods. It was totally worth it and absolutely hit the spot.

What We Ate 6/21/15 – 6/27/15

Somehow this week we had a lot of leftovers to catch up on. They were all delicious of course, but that meant we didn’t get to try too many new recipes. We also have been trying to go out to eat a bit more to get us out of our usual routine. Since it is summer now it is nice to be able to walk into town and go grab some food you normally wouldn’t cook for yourself or to try a fun new cocktail. Since moving to Allston, we have been able to try a lot of new places to eat and having been loving them all. This week we went to Park in Cambridge and it was definitely a fun place to go and eat.
kale salad

Sunday: Leftover Mexican Brussel Sprout Slaw. We made this last week and it came out great!

kung pao chickpeas

Monday: Kung Pao Chickpeas with some added veggies. We followed this recipe but then added in some cauliflower, broccoli, and peppers then served it over brown rice. This came out really well and we will definitely be making it again!

zucchini boat

Tuesday: Leftover Zucchini boats from last week with a side salad.

Wednesday: Leftover Kung Pao Chickpeas.

Veggie burger

Thursday: Good ol’ veggie burger and a salad. Always good, always hits the spot. Shout out to my bunny grahams!

Friday: Out to dinner at Park in Cambridge. We got a chicken dish with mashed potatoes, peas, and onions. Plus some delicious cocktails. The food was very good just a bit of a more hearty meal, possibly more suitable for the winter months if you catch my drift.

What We Ate 6/7/15 – 6/13/15

Hello! Have you missed us? We have been busy bees moving apartments and living with about 1094 boxes in all of our rooms. As you can imagine we haven’t had much time or room to keep up with PAC these last few weeks. However, we are back and coming up with some fun summer treats to share! But, as always, first we will share what we have been munching on the past few days.

Monday & Tuesday: Brussels sprout salad, chicken, and roasted sweet potatoes and parsnips. This was a hog podge dinner that we just threw together with what we had in our fridge. We roasted the sweet potatoes and parsnips in a little bit of salt and pepper and some rosemary.

Wednesday: Stir fry veggies summer rolls. We have been on a summer roll kick lately! I’m not sure if it is because we have been trying to use up a whole pack of rice paper rolls or if it is because they are so fresh and delightful when it is hot outside, probably a little bit of both. We stir-fried up some peppers, zucchini, corn, and asparagus in a dash of soy sauce and some teriyaki and then rolled them in the rice paper with avocado. Yummo!

Thursday: Cambridge, 1. Rose met me at work and we strolled into Cambridge to grab a slice (or two) of pizza before I had to head back to work.

Friday: More summer rolls!

Saturday: Beat Hotel . We went out to dinner with Rose’s parents at the Beat Hotel in Cambridge. It was really yummy and very filling, we both got their Earthly Delight Bowls, which feature a grain, a protein of choice, and some vegetables. We will definitely be going back as they have a long cocktail list (not to mention 36 types of wine on tap!?)

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 5/17/15 – 5/23/15

Woo what a week! Is it just me or has anyone else had a crazy busy week?? And with our move coming up shortly things are only going to get busier and busier. Plus where did May go? I thought it was still April.. Okay, okay enough complaints from me. Even though this week was hectic we still managed to throw together some super delicious and healthy meals. Okay, maybe Rose was able to throw together most of the meals, but I was able to eat and enjoy them!

cereal

Sunday: Cereal! We drove back from Hanover, NH this day and decided to do our grocery shop without stopping at home. We both were pretty exhausted and craving something simple and sweet so we put away all our nice fresh veggies and fruit and opted for a big bowl of cereal instead. Some days you just have to!

Veggie burger Mango cucumber salsa

Monday: Veggie burgers with cucumber mango salsa. We are currently trying to clean out our freezer, which means we will be eating even more veggie burgers than we normally do. I ain’t complaining! We made this cucumber and mango salsa as a side.

Spring rolls

Tuesday: Thai Summer Rolls. We had these last week and were dying to have them again so we used our leftover rice papers to make up another batch. Yum yum yum!

Brussel sprout taco IMG_1513

Wednesday: Kale and brussels sprout tacos. Rose graciously whipped these up for us and they came out excellent. Definitely will be making these again!

Be good

Thursday: I was working late so Rose met me for a take out dinner at work. We had B.good and it hit the spot. We each got salads and then shared some sweet potato fries.

Friday: Leftover kale and brussels sprout tacos. yumm!

Pizza

Saturday: Pizza night! We had this pizza in the freezer taking up so much space for the past few months and we finally got around to making it. It had sausage, pepperoni, peppers, and onions. We both had salads on the side as well. Love frozen pizzas!
