Tasty Tidbits

How was everyone's week? It seemed like a busy week for us, even though in reality we didn't have a lot going on. We were in the usual work/eat/sleep mode. The Bup's schedule changed & so this week just felt strange because our routine was off. Plus we were recooperating from the shower renovation of last weekend! I'm still stepping on random pieces of plaster that appear from thin air. Where are they coming from!?

On Monday night, we watched Breaking Dawn: Part 1. (Yes, we're way behind on our movie watching!) I liked the Twilight books & movies, from a pure entertainment stand point. There were many parts of the movie where we joked about how cheesy it was. I was in shock with how thin they made Bella during her pregnancy! I googled it, though, & Kristen Stewart was not required to loose all that weight. Whew! Thank goodness for CGI.

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:

  • Whole Wheat Sourdough Pancakes
  • Yogurt with a variation on my Millet & Oat Granola
  • Cereal: Puffed Millet, Puffed rice & Puffed Kamut with vanilla almond milk on it.
  • Zucchini Overnight oats: 1/2 c rolled oats, 1/3 c almond milk, 1 tsp. chia seeds, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 c shredded zucchini
  • Angela's Oil-Free Chocolate Zucchini Walnut Muffins - These turned out really well! They were quick & simple to make. I think I should have increased the baking time slightly, to fully cook the zucchini, but they're still yummy! (Note: The recipe says it makes 12, but I ended up with 20 muffins.)
  • Fresh fruit: peaches, canteloupe, banana


  • Grilled provolone cheese sandwiches on whole wheat sourdough bread
  • Guacamole with cherry tomatoes & Trader Joe's sweet potato tortilla chips (the best!)
  • Pesto pasta with zucchini & tomatoes (We loved this. I made it at random, but afterwards I tried writing down all the ingredients so I can re-create it. Hopefully then I'll have a recipe for you!)
  • Make Your Own Salad Bar w/ friends - mixed greens, tomatoes, bell pepper, red onion, apple, strawberries, sunflower seeds, avocado, tortilla strips, croutons - and wine, of course!
Thursday: We had Dad was over for dinner since Mom's visiting my aunt.
  • Grilled pizza - like these but with some different toppers (marinara sauce, zucchini, chard, onions, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, & olives)
  • Salad with Brittany's Honey Mustard Dressing (I reduced the olive oil & added more vinegar - we love a good kick to our salads. This was delicious, as it had a nice creamy quality without being heavy.)
  • Rehearsal dinner for my brother-in-law's wedding!
