What We Ate 4/19/15 – 4/25/15

Hi everyone! Can you believe April is already coming to an end? I can’t… This year is already going by so fast. Last Monday was Marathon Monday in Boston and Haley and I stood outside in the cold, drizzly weather and cheered on the runners. I always have a great time, but with everything going on after the bombings, I found it particularly emotional being there this year. So we stood outside¬†with chai tea¬†drinks keeping us warm and cheered until we got hoarse and then went home and watched the rest on TV while eating soup. But anyways, what did we eat this week?

Orange cauliflower

Sunday & Monday:¬†Orange Cauliflower based on this recipe. We’ve followed this recipe before and modified it quite a bit. What we did was made the “sauce” part of this recipe (we doubled it) and chopped up half a head of cauliflower and a few carrots. We also added a can of baby corn, a can of sliced water chestnuts, and a can of chickpeas (all rinsed and drained). We dumped¬†these in a large glass baking pan and poured the sauce over and baked it at 425 F for about 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through.

veggie burger

Tuesday: Veggie burgers with big ol’ side salad. Ok, you all know at this point what happens when we come home from work and we’re both too tired and too uninspired to cook any of the recipes we’ve planned for the week. So we tossed this meal together in about 5 minutes.

red pepper pasta

Wednesday:¬†Roasted Red Pepper Pasta. I love this recipe. Love love love it. We’ve now made it twice. So long as you have the time to roast the red peppers, then this recipe is so easy. What I did to speed things up a little is quarter the red peppers and dry roast them at around 450¬†F¬†for only about 20-25 minutes. I could eat this pasta forever. Extra nutritional yeast? Yes please!

Thursday: Roasted sweet potato and zucchini fries with sautéed brussel sprouts, kidney beans, and some chips on the side. This may sound random, but we actually bought a bunch of veggies with the goal of throwing something together. I have this awesome cheesy popcorn seasoning from a spice shop in Portland, Oregon and we tossed the sweet potato and zucchini in it. Yum Yum.

Friday: Leftover pasta with a side of sautéed brussels sprouts.

BBQ chicken salad

Saturday: Trader Joe’s BBQ pulled chicken salad with avocado, corn, peppers, and tomatoes. Trader Joe’s, oh how you save the day. You have to try this BBQ chicken. It is so so good. Also, this Cowboy Salsa was all sorts of spicy and sweet goodness.
