Hello my friends! This past week has been pretty low-key for us; nothing too exciting going on now. We were back in Cape Cod the previous weekend and are headed to New Hampshire to visit my family this upcoming weekend. It has been a busy summer but a great one so far! I can’t believe it is already August and stores are putting out all their back to school stuff. I also can’t believe I haven’t been in the back to school rush for 2 years now. These years after graduation really fly by! At least we have good food to enjoy them!
Sunday: Breakfast for dinner. We had just driven home and didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking up dinner so we threw together some scrambled eggs and steamed veggies. I always love eggs for dinner for something quick and easy.
Monday: Easy Vegan Alfredo by the Minimalist Baker. We were craving some cheesy pasta but since Rose has recently decided she thinks she is lactose intolerant we skipped the cheese and made a vegan alfredo instead. The recipe was good and we of course added some veggies to ours because that’s what we love to do!
Tuesday: Spring Rolls with Carrot-Ginger Dipping Sauce from Martha Stewart. We tried a new spring roll recipe and this one did not disappoint! Something about the summer just makes me want fresh raw veggies. The carrot-ginger sauce was messy but oh so good.
Wednesday: Leftover pasta!
Thursday: Sweet Potato Falafel Pitas from Sweat Peas and Saffron. These falafels came out so well. I love sweet potatoes in pretty much anything so I was dying to try this recipe and I’m so glad we did. It was delicious and we now have plenty of leftover falafels for the week!
Friday: Leftover falafels- yum yum!
Saturday: Vegan Zucchini Bread Pancakes by The Vegan and The Chef. Apparently breakfast for dinner was the theme for this week because we couldn’t resist making these scrumptious pancakes after I saw the recipe online. I know zucchini pancakes might sound a bit odd but you must try these they are so delicious! Caroline also has a beet pancake recipe that we are going to try next.
