What We Ate 5/10/15 – 5/17/15

Hello! We are currently sitting at my sitting at my family’s kitchen table in New Hampshire enjoying some yummy grilled dinners and much laughter. We decided to bump up to my house for the weekend to say hello to my parents and unload some of my stuff before we move in a few weeks (eek!) I don’t think we have mentioned this before, but we are planning to move apartments just within Boston. We are excited for the move but also a bit scared and are franticly trying to pack up what we can now and ship it off to our parents house. We aren’t even moving very far but we have so much furniture and clothes and pots and pans to pack up; oh the joys of moving! Because we are so enthralled in our packing we haven’t been the greatest about updating you. So here is our typical what we ate in the past week so you can keep tabs on us!

spring rolls IMG_1376

Sunday: Thai Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce from Pinch of Yum. These were soooo good. Love Lindsay; you really can’t go wrong with her recipes. We will definitely be making these again (and probably soon because we have leftover rice paper)!

vegetable curry

Monday: Curry Stew from Cooking Light. This came out so well. We were kind of hesitant to make it, but are so glad that we did because it was positively delicious.

cauliflower mac and cheese

Tuesday: Mac & cheese with cauliflower and Brussel sprouts. Rose cooked up this delicious meal for us and it came out excellent. She sort of followed along with this recipe from That Was Vegan?, but as we like to add in more veggies we did that and used less cheese. It was super super yummy!!

rice bowl

Wednesday: Rice and lentil bowl with carrots, broccoli, and Brussel sprouts. We were sort of going off a recipe in this months Vegetarian Times magazine for this meal but ended up changing things up a bit. We used their lemon dijon dressing to top it all. It came out pretty well!

cauliflower mac and cheese

Thursday: Leftover pasta and a side salad. Yum, still good! Gotta have some spinach to go with our pasta.

grilled veggies IMG_1428 (1)

Friday: Grilled chicken and veggies! We drove home to NH for this day and since it was so nice out we decided to have my mom fire up the grill and grill us some chicken that was marinated in BBQ sauce. We also sliced some zucchini, peppers, and pineapple and threw that on the grill as well. Oh how I love grilling in the summer!

turkey burgers and fries

Saturday: Grilled turkey burgers with corn, watermelon, and sweet potato fries. Another delicious and easy grilled meal from home.

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!
