Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend. I am currently enjoy an acai bowl from home and about to go outside to cheer on the runners in the Boston Marathon. Hopefully the rain will hold off for them today! This week for food we had some special delights as it was someones birthday… Rose turned 23 on last Sunday! We got to enjoy a delicious brownie pie with a big pile of ice cream. Yum, I love birthdays! Here is what else we ate this week:
Sunday: Rice bowl and birthday cake! We had some rice with all sorts of veggies piled in and dressed with soy sauce and some sesame seeds. Simple and delicious! We also made this delicious brownie pie that we enjoyed with extra ice cream and wine; Happy birthday Rose!
Monday: Egg sandwich with asparagus. This was a throw together whatever we had kind of night. I ended up with this delicious egg sandwich with spinach and a fresh tomato with some sautéed asparagus on the side. I love that asparagus is in season!
Tuesday: Risotto with chicken and spring veggies. We sort of followed this recipe, but we already had cooked rice so we changed it up a bit and added our own things. It turned out okay, but probably would have been much better if we had cooked the rice according to the recipe. Oh well! Tuesday was also free cone day at Ben & Jerry’s so we might have had dessert before dinner.. It was positively delicious! We both got The Tonight Dough and yum yum yum it was amazing.
Wednesday: Meatball Sandwich with Veggies. We were planning on doing a different recipe with these turkey meatballs that we picked up at Trader Joe’s but a sandwich sounded better so we whipped up these instead. We cooked the meatballs in some marina sauce and sautéed some zucchini, onion, corn, and carrots to add on top.
Thursday & Friday: Cornbread Panzanella Salad from Two Peas & Their Pod. This salad was delicious and just what I wanted. Extra cornbread on top, yes please! We would have had this delicious dish many more nights except our cornbread molded! We put it away when it must have still been a bit moist and as our apartment can get overly heated, it was just not a good combination.
Saturday: It was both my mom’s birthday as well as Rose’s dad’s… coincidence, who knows? Rose went out to dinner with her family to celebrate and I had some pizza on the couch while I caught up with my mom on the phone.
