What I Ate This Week

Dinners

Sunday: Grilled Turkey Burgers with Wholly Guacamole.  Served on a fluffy Whole Wheat Brioche Bun.

Weekly Meals 4 (1 of 15)

Monday: Sauteed Shrimp with Spinach Asiago Polenta Tart

Shrimp was sauteed in butter with some sea salt and cajun spice mix.  And I was loving this polenta tart.  Recipe will be up soon.

Weekly Meals 4 (3 of 15)

Tuesday: Greek Yogurt Mac n’ Cheese with chicken sausage, spinach and peas.  I was inspired by this recipe…but I didn’t use bacon or goat cheese or mozzarella.  Just used some sharp cheddar.  I loved the idea of adding the pasta water (instead of using milk) to create a creamy sauce.

Greek Yogurt Mac n’ Cheese: Boil 2 cups whole grain pasta.  While pasta is cooking, add in 3/4 cup green peas.  When pasta is done cooking, reserve 1 cup pasta water and drain pasta + peas into a colander.  Pour cooked pasta + peas into the original pot and add in 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar, 1/4 cup reserved pasta water, 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, 1 1/2 cup spinach, 2 tbsp dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp sea salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  If needed, add more pasta water.  Stir everything together and serve warm.

Thursday: Nachos!

Made with leftover chicken, black beans, corn, broccoli (on my half) & Cabot chipotle cheddar (was sent a sample from Cabot…absolutely loving that cheese).  We served the nachos with guac & greek yogurt.

Then we went and saw Divergent.  Holy Attractive Male…that actor is good looking.

Saturday: We ended up going to Jimmy John’s for dinner.  I hadn’t been before…I was super unimpressed.  I didn’t even take a picture.  I’m more of a toasty, delicious sandwich person…so Jimmy John’s isn’t really for me.

Lunches

Leftover spinach polenta tart + chicken sausage.  Served with berries on the side.

Delicious parmesan chicken made by Andrew + acorn squash + broccoli.

Saturday I volunteered at an Urban Harvest event.  There was a potluck involved and those wonderful people let me eat…so much good food.  This zucchini cornbread I had was high on my favorites list! So good!  Also, an unpictured scoop of banana pudding was to.die.for.

Then a Saturday morning breakfast at Croissant Brioche spent catching up with my sisters.  I had a smoked salmon quiche + latte.  Such a great morning.

    Snacks-Desserts

So for my dietetic internship, I recently started my School Food Service Rotation at a school district just outside of Houston.  A definite perk is warm chocolate chip cookies…made with half the butter replaced with applesauce.

And now it’s Sunday again and the week is coming at us!  I really loved going to see a movie Thursday night though…it makes the weekend seem longer!! I’ll have to convince Andrew that we need more Thursday date nights in our life!
