Tasty Tidbits

We're adding a new member to our family today! Before that, we're heading to Bethlehem, PA for VegFest. I can't wait to explore everything there. The schedule & the exhibitors look fantastic. I'll let you know how it was! Then on the way home, we're stopping at a friend from work's house to pick up a kitten. We haven't quite decided on the black or the speckled one. I can't wait to meet them & see their personalities. Pictures to follow!

(Pumpkin, my first kitty. I miss her!)

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

  • Cake Duchess' Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake - I lightened this up a little by subbing applesauce for half the butter & used white whole wheat flour for extra fiber. The lemon flavor is very prevalent, which we loved!
  • Overnight oats with zucchini & peanut butter
  • Cereal: Puffed Millet, Puffed rice & Puffed Kamut with vanilla almond milk on it.
  • Fresh fruit: peaches, banana


  • Baked polenta & tomato casserole, made by Mom (So flavorful!!)
  • Green salad
  • We had a big lunch with leftover pasta from Saturday night, so dinner was light.
  • Joy's Whole Wheat Flatbreads, used as the crust for veggie pizza. Toppers were balsamic glazed cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced zucchini, green bell pepper, swiss chard, & shredded provolone cheese
  • Whole wheat penne pasta with zucchini, onions, peppers, swiss chard, & garlic, topped with a sauce made from eggplant chickpea dip thinned with tomato juice. - This was a throw-extra-veggies-together meal & turned out to be delicious. When I saw how much dip I had, I decided to repurpose it instead of freezing half. It turned into a creamy sauce that was also healthy!

  • Dad's Special Birthday Cake - Carrot Spice Cake - I added some cinnamon to the frosting this time & it was so good!
  • Jessica's Oatmeal Peanut Butter Snack Squares - These were really quick & easy to make. For the huge amount of pb in them, they weren't all that nutty, but we still loved them! The edges & top get nice & crispy while the center stayed soft.
  • Ice cream cups from a lady in choir to celebrate her birthday
