Monday: What I Ate
I’ve actually been cooking quite a bit this week, which makes me happy. I love putting my kitchen to good use. I’ve made a few of my favorite go-to recipes for those dinners, since I’m not brave enough to try brand new recipes on my friends. Do you have a few favorite recipes that you pull out for dinner parties? Anyways, let’s jump into what I’ve been eating!
I have been trying some new breakfast options lately. Since I had part of an avocado leftover in the fridge, I decided to make avocado toast. Seriously, such an easy breakfast and it was so delicious.
Looks weird, tastes awesome. 2 pieces of whole wheat toast topped with avocado, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Give me those healthy fats.
We had some friends from church over for dinner on Sunday night and I made a baked ravioli dish. We had leftovers, so I packed them up for lunch. The ravioli recipe is like, embarrassingly easy. Normally I’d try to make something a little more fancy, but Sunday was a bit crunched for time, so you do what you gotta do. Besides, easy recipes still taste pretty delicious.
These leftovers were actually pretty awesome. I’ve gotten better and better at packing leftovers for lunch. (Here are my tips for packing your lunch!)
Our friend Oliver was in town (the one who made us this awesome shelf) so I whipped up channa masala for dinner. I used this recipe from Eat Live Run, which I love. I also made some brown rice and naan for spicy a carb-filled dinner.
I tend to make this dish a bit on the spicy side (ok fine, you needed a box of tissues to eat it) but I managed to tone it down to a reasonable spice level. I’m learning.
After dinner, I grabbed a glass of wine with Christina, Brittany, and Alyssa at Barrel Thief. I’d never been there before but it was adorable so I’m hoping to go there for dinner sometime soon, & maybe I’ll actually remember to take some pictures! I had a glass of red wine which was on the sweeter side, so it was the perfect way to end the day.
