This was our first full week back after vacation. After being away and eating vacation food, I feel like I have to wean myself off wanting to eat out every single night. To cope, I’ve been chai tea-ing so hard lately. Can’t get enough!
Monday: Breakfast for dinner! Scrambled ricotta eggs with roasted brussels and whole wheat toast.
For the eggs, I just whisked together eggs until fluffy. Then poured them into a pan coated in some olive oil. I cooked them over super low heat stirring with a wooden spatula the entire time. During the last minute of cooking, I turned off the heat and stirred in some ricotta cheese. So creamy. So fluffy.
Tuesday: Sauteed chicken topped with tomato slices that I broiled in the oven with pesto and mozzarella on top. Love this! Andrew’s college roommate made a version of this chicken for us once and I’ve loved it ever since. Served with roasted sweet potatoes.
Wednesday: Out to Tex-Mex. I had a weird, emotional day and didn’t feel like cooking.
Saturday: Andrew and I went out to dinner with my parents, Layne (sister) and Marco (her boyfriend). My Dad had a bunch of giftcards to Taste of Texas, so steaks it was.
This restaurant is ridiculous. They don’t take reservations, so you end up waiting 1 1/2+ hours to sit down and eat…and people wait. I’m not a steak eater because I don’t really enjoy the taste, but these steaks are so good. I went for the 6oz filet with garlic butter. Salad and a (CHEESY) baked potato on the side.
Sunday: Pan-seared salmon + grilled corn + spinach salad with pomegranates & avocado.
Hummus + roasted veggies.
Salad. Topped with raspberries, cornmeal baked okra, tuna mixed with hummus and some gruyere cheese. I don’t know how I feel about gruyere. It’s not my favorite cheese.
Another day, another salad. Same ingredients as before, except goat cheese instead of gruyere.
Carnitas Quesadilla at Freebirds. (I’m Team Chipotle all the way.)
Chai tea latte + 2 slices pb & banana toast.
Chocolate protein shake + Nature’s Path Maple cereal.
Overnight oats with some cereal for crunch.
Pomegranates. Yay Fall!
Chai tea latte at Agora. The second year dietetic interns are planning a dinner for the new 1st year interns, so we met up here to plan.
Tried La Croix for the first time. I like how bubbly it is. And as long as it’s ice cold, it’s so so refreshing! The not sweet flavor is going to take a little getting used to though.
homemade chai tea latte.
making more chai tea concentrate.
Some cocoa pb bites.
random Tuesday night froyo date with the husband.
I made these deep dish cookies. They were so bad. So, so bad. They had garbanzo beans and I thought they were gonna be like a fudgy blondie type of cookie…but they weren’t. They ended up being way too tough to eat. #fail
A lot of hot yoga. I’m recovering from a pulled glute and trying to take it easy. I miss squats. Hopefully it’ll be feeling better soon!
