What I ate this week.
Blue cheese + sweet potatoes <3
For the beans, just saute 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper in 1-2 tbsp olive oil. Cook over medium until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in 1 can pinto beans (rinsed & drained) and stir everything together. Cook for ~5 minutes. Scoop everything into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add salt/pepper to taste.
Wednesday: White Bass Fish Tacos. Topped with shredded purple cabbage + corn + cilantro with a scoop of greek yogurt sauce.
Sauce was 2/3 cup plain greek yogurt + 1 1/2 tablespoon BBQ sauce + 1 teaspoon sriracha + squeeze lime juice.
Thursday: Deep Dish Tamale. Will be making again and writing down the recipe this time!
Friday: Leftovers from the night before + brussels sprouts.
Saturday: Out to dinner with my sisters + mom at The Federal Grill. Last Mother’s Day, we gave my mom the ‘gift’ of having a girls night dinner date at that restaurant. We finally made it (a week before this years Mother’s Day)!
We started off with buttermilk biscuits.
Then got 2 appetizers to share: lump crab cake and BBQ bonemarrow. Crab cake was to die for. Bonemarrow was…interesting. It was fun, but I wouldn’t order it again.
All the sides looked too good to pass up soooo…for my meal I ended up ordering two sides instead of an entree: Truffle Mac & Cheese + Crispy Brussels Sprouts. I don’t really love truffle but I still ate it all. And those brussels sprouts…still dreaming of them! So good!
Sunday: Cod (that fell apart in the pan) + brown rice. Served with a strawberry & blue cheese salad drizzled in my favorite dressing.
Simple salad with tuna + red bell peppers + purple cabbage + goat cheese. And no salad is complete without roasted sweet potatoes!
An egg. Cheese & crackers. Salad.
Leftover chicken & dumplings + crackers.
Creamy overnight oats. I let these oats sit for 2 nights in the fridge. I think that (and the mashed banana) added to their creaminess!
1/2 cup old fashioned oats + 1/2 banana, mashed + 1/2 cup greek yogurt + 2/3 cup milk + scant 1 tbsp chia seeds + pinch sea salt + dash cinnamon
A rare occasion when I crave savory things for breakfast…breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs & roasted sweet potatoes.
vanilla + chocolate froyo with waffle cone crumbles & cookie dough.
These muffins (topped with an occasional spread of peanut butter/almond butter).
This quick leg circuit!
