I didn’t blog last week. Sorry! And I probably won’t post this week either, besides the post today. I’ve been ridiculously busy at work. And then my mom came. We had a nice time making bread pudding and chatting when I wasn’t grading papers or popping into lab on the weekend to do crosses. She took lots of pictures. Here is one of J and me in the bulk section at our shopping market. I make funny pictures
Ah that is better. I’m actually smiling. Look at all the groceries!
Saturday- Vegetable soup and garlic bread. A great way to get rid of leftover vegetables in the fridge.
Sunday-Ground turkey and quinoa patties with salad. I saw this recipe on a blog and had to try it. It was actually quite delicious and I think I’ll be putting quinoa in burgers from now on.
Monday-Beef and eggplant and choy (from the garden!) stirfry over rice. My favorite chinese restaurant makes a delicious eggplant dish. I tried to recreate it and failed miserably. That said, the stir-fry was still delicious.
Tuesday-Spinach and sun-dried tomato panini.
Wednesday-Pasta with tuna and parsley + squash.
Thursday-Takeout. Jonathon was sick so I didn’t make dinner.
Friday-Pumpkin soup. I had a leftover pumpkin from the fields at work. I roasted it in the oven, saving seeds as a snack, then added onion, celery, and half a green apple. Done! Instant soup.
This week: It’s soup week and pasta week! J wanted soup for dinner every night. Because we only thought of 4 soup recipes, we decided to throw in a few other meals for good measure. I’ve blogged most of the recipes before. Sweet! Now all I need is some rain to make Winter complete.
Saturday- Tabbouleh and sausage.
Monday-Spicy pasta bake.
Wednesday-Corn chowder and spinach.
Thursday-Chicken barley soup. Bulk barley. It’s easy.
Friday-Pasta w/ broccoli. I have some mediocre pasta sauce I made back in summer. We have leftover pasta in bulk jars and decided it was time to use up the sauce. Why broccoli? We’ll it is a seasonal vegetable I haven’t had recently.
