What i ate this week.

With Andrew’s birthday and Easter weekend coinciding, this week involved a lot of eating out and even more desserts.  I tried to start the week off with nutritious meals because I knew what was coming this weekend (i.e. s’mores & fluffy frosting cupcakes). 

Thursday evening Andrew and I headed to my parents lakehouse for the long weekend, which meant fishing, family time, delicious food and sunsets.

Easter 1


Monday: Shrimp Cobb Salad inspired by Damn Delicious.  I left off the bacon and added greek yogurt to the dressing to make it creamy.  Goat Cheese Love.

Tuesday: Baked Tofu Stir-fry.  I used this recipe for the tofu.  This is my absolute favorite way to eat tofu.

Wednesday: Andrew’s birthday dinner at Torchy’s!

I got 2 tacos…

Mr. Orange: salmon, grilled corn+black beans, queso fresco and cilantro on a corn tortilla.

Brushfire: Jamaican jerk chicken, mango, grilled jalapenos, sour cream and cilantro on a corn tortilla.

Anybody been to Torchy’s?!  If it wouldn’t be completely ridiculous, Andrew and I could totally eat there every single week.

Friday: Pulled pork + green beans + baked beans.  …and no picture. 

Saturday: Homemade nachos with pulled pork + beans + sharp cheddar + cilantro.  Before dinner we had spent 3 hours fishing out on the boat, so I was real hungry by the time we ate and forgot to take any pictures. 

Sunday:  Baked Parmesan Chicken with balsamic+honey carrots.  Served with a salad made from spring mix + pistachios + tomatoes.

And that was my week!  Now I’m looking forward to getting back on track, starting my summer job and eating some veggie-dense meals this week.  Except I do have a way fun dinner this Tuesday that probably won’t involve too many veggies…:)

  1. Thank you for all the nice recipes.

  2. I am moving out to Cali and fully plan on eating all the sourdough ;)

  3. All I saw was a post full of tacos and desserts (aka the perfect diet!). I love these posts!

  4. I love Torchy’s!! I lived outside Austin for a few months and it was one of my favorite spots. Love all your desserts too.. I’m basically drooling on my computer over here :)

  5. All of your photos look amazing! I definitely want to try that tofu soon. :)

  6. Yum this all looks so delicious!

  7. Too funny about Torchy’s! I literally just posted about them! Their avocado taco was everything!

  8. Ahhh this looks like such a fun week of eating!!!! Mr. Pink is also one of my favs at Torchy’s…along with the Baja Shrimp and Migas. Thank god I don’t eat meat (aside from fish) or I would truly never be able to decide on just 2. PS. I am so so soso excited to try your dirt cake/chia pudding. Your recipes are killing it! I tried your deep dish pizza quiches and they were SO GOOD–I made them three times in 2 weeks I think haha.

    Also omg you have ruined me. The place you got Andrew’s cupcakes? 10 min from my work. I’m dyinggg to try it. What’s your fav flavor(s)??

    • 10 minutes away!?? That danger lol! We tried the chocoholic, chocolate cream pie and red velvet. It’s weird, but the red velvet wasn’t so great. It was way drier than the chocolate ones! I’ve heard good things about the lemon and carrot cake ones too!!

  9. OH! It all looks so good! Those desserts…can’t wait to see what recipes you were trying out!

  10. Ahh that shrimp cobb salad… except I’m allergic to shrimp. Maybe I’ll try it with scallops!
