Week Nine

I’m late. So late. I actually didn’t do much real cooking because last week was busy but here’s what we had that I remembered to photograph
   Thai green curry with vegetables and tofu. I’ve made this before and loved it but this? Meh.

 salad with avocado, tomatoes and red onion – this is our typical salad 

   Roasted cauliflower – I love it so much. Soooooo much.

 Tuna, hard-boiled eggs, spinach and avocado in a spinach wrap for M.
   The wrap from above in salad corn for me!

 citrus grilled chicken thighs – we ate this with the cauliflower and salad. It was delicious.

Week 8

We’re currently driving back from Maryland having spent the day with family, celebrating the christening of the newest member of our family – it was a really lovely day.

I know I mentioned The Ethiopian’s cholesterol before and last weekend we went to visit a naturopath and developed a plan for going forward.Generally, it falls in line with the way we already eat but cuts back our animal consumption even further which I’m fine with. I was not very good at photos this week, partially because it was just a busy week and I’m not sure if I’m going to continue to post photos or just some kind of recap of what we ate. So…we’ll see how it all shakes out.

 Not pictured: sweet and spicy salmon, roasted carrots and quinoa (which we discovered The Ethiopian is VERY allergic too and causes him nausea and vomiting)

   Saag aloo aka Indian spinach and potatoes that I added a few other mixed veggies to & a rich of cream. SO. GOOD.

Masala lentils – this recipe is from the Vegan Richa cookbook which I strongly suggest you purchase – it’s SO good. You can find this particular recipe by googling. I did use the steamed lentils from Trader Joe’s and canned, diced tomatoes but otherwise followed the recipe and YUM!

   Taco lettuce cups – ground  turkey, corn, avocado, salsa in iceberg lettuce. Don’t know why it had never dawned on me to make variations on lettuce cups but we loved these and I’m adding them to the rotation. 

Week Six 

Happy Valentine’s Day! This week I’d say I was in a bit of a slump. I’m so completely over winter and I need the sun to come back so I can start complaining about that. Here’s a cooking recap: 

   Pasta pesto with broccoli and lemon pepper chicken 

 Chicken tinga empanadas and guacamole (my favorite thing I ate this week)
  Chipotle turkey chili. So perfect for this dismal weather.  

 Chicken and veggie potstickers (that I obviously forgot about momentarily) from Trader Joe’s and a quick veggie lo mein.
