Tasty Tidbits

Tink has started to love sitting by the fire when we have it going. Typical cat, I suppose, but up until a few weeks ago she didn't seem to care one way or the other when we had a fire. Now she's into it. She look so cuddly, but she's really not into that. :-/
Snacking & beer happened before dinner last Saturday night. Isn't that a fun coaster? :-) We were having enchiladas, so chips w/ guac & salsa seemed appropriate appetizers. I could make a meal of just that, but it's lacking balance...

Lots of great food & new recipe testing this week! I had some spare time last weekend & did lots of cooking/baking/prep for the week, so we were eating well. :-)  It turned out to be a good thing, since we had lots of snow/ice this week. Thankfully, we stayed safe & only had our power flicker once.
I'm baking with friends this weekend! Bread, tortillas, pretzel bread bowls, & brownies. It should be lots of fun & we'll have goodies stocked for the week/freezer.

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

  • Classic hummus
  • Mega salad topped with tempeh
  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers
  • Baked sweet potato wedges
  • Grapefruit, oranges, apples & clementines

  • Baked sweet potatoes
  • The Kitchn's Cider Beans - Every year I made baked beans on Super Bowl Sunday. This year I tried this new recipe & we enjoyed them. I made a few slight changes, but generally followed the flavor profile of the recipe.
  • Green salad
  • Jessica's 30 Minute Portobello Fried Brown Rice - This came together very quickly & was bursting with flavor. If you don't like mushrooms, it's definitely not for you, but we liked it (especially Walter, who is a mushroom lover!).
  • Green salad
  • Curried lentil soup
  • Green salad
Out to eat at Lisa's Cafe (we walked/slid over in the ice)
  • Me - Portobello mushrooms reuben (minus the thousand island dressing) + side salad
  • W - Vegetable stromboli + side caesar salad

Dinner at Mom & Pops' before choir

  • One pot pasta
