Tasty Tidbits

I hope you all had a great week!

Since we got married, I've gotten a potted plant on Valentine's Day from the Bup. It suits me perfectly - I don't want the cut flowers because they die, which is a waste of money & pretty flowers. This year, I picked mine out because we were at Lowe's together. Every time I see this orchid it makes me happy all over again!

Tink's so dark that she's hard to catch on camera. I used this basket to carry some stuff up from our pantry in the basement & she found it. I heard rustling & turned around just in time to see her curling up in it. She napped there for awhile!

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

  • Maple yogurt with Sunflower Seed & Coconut Granola
  • Spelt Waffles
  • Bon Appetit's Hot Oat & Quinoa Cereal - This was quick & easy to make. I like the addition of cardamom - I never think to add that to my oats.
  • Bananas & crunchy pb



Out to dinner with friends at Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery
  • Hummus with pitas, carrots & celery
  • Tossed Salad
  • Peace Wrap (Hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, & house-roasted vegetables on a whole wheat tortilla.)
Dinner with parents & grandparents
  • Cooking Light's Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onion & Spinach Lasagna - This wasn't what I was expecting when I showed Mom the recipe, but it was definitely yummy. I'm a sucker for roasted squash, though, so that's what sold me. It was in the lasagna in chunks instead of mashed like squash in lasagnas often is.
  • Sauteed Brussels sprouts
  • Oatmeal Sourdough Bread
  • Green Salad
  • Veggie Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce - A favorite in our house! They take a little extra time for the rolling, but other than that, the ingredients are simple & quick.
Date night at Lisa's Cafe
