Now that we’ve been in the new place for about two weeks, there’s less boxes lying around and it’s starting to actually feel like home. We have internet, cable, a couch and chairs, things on the wall and one of the two cars is able to park in the garage. It’s the little things, huh?
But what I’m the most excited about is being able to go grocery shopping again, to be cooking for myself all the time, and bringing back my desire to cook in the kitchen. My eats might not have been that different this week but I definitely had a few stars of the show, so let’s just skip right to it.
A couple weeks ago I received a Ninja Ultima Blender to test out and review. I’m still working on trying out a few things before diving into the review post but let’s just say, I’ve never had a smoothie this good before!
Sometimes life throws curveballs and your original plans for the day in the city get turned into a late lunch/early dinner. As soon as we sat down at Native Foods, I don’t think any of us regretted our trip in.
I had the Indo-Noodle Salad and as soon as I took one bite, I looked at my friends and said “please excuse me, but I’m about to devour this entire bowl.” Needless to say, we all cleared out plates and while we were stuffed, we wanted to go back for more. Delicious!
I’ve been eating more eggs lately (as I’m sure you’ve noticed) and while I found myself wanting them for dinner the other night, I didn’t feel like making scrambled eggs or an omelette. After seeing my roommate make eggs-in-a-frame the other night, I knew that was what I wanted for dinner. I think this was the first time I made them myself so I don’t have a technique down just yet. The yolks overcooked a bit but they were still super tasty, especially since they were cooked in coconut oil.
A 10-mile run calls for proper fueling the night before so I cooked up a bowl of spelt pasta with roasted tomatoes and veggie sausage for dinner. I stirred in a little hummus to make it feel like a creamier sauce and ate some leftover green beans while everything was cooking. Simple and delicious!
What delicious-ness have you cooked or consumed this week?
