Pizza sounds good, but maybe calzones are even better. I noticed a different variation of pad thai in a cook book. Plus, I can actually get bean sprouts. Yes! Whenever I get a good avocado I want them all…the…time. We’ll roll the dice with a sweet potato black bean quesadilla meal. I have panang curry […]

This was our light load from the market today. We still had lots of provisions from Saturday’s trip. The 2-almost 3 yr old assistant “helped” me with the menu board before I could get a clean photo. 🙂 I’m into hummus lately. I really like it in wraps for lunch. I made red pepper curry […]

This menu was inspired by our Tuesday trip to the farmer’s market. Next shopping day is Saturday. I couldn’t resist the really weird yet intriguing purple long beans. I’ll try a simple stir fry to check out the flavor. Purple is maybe a theme this week. Purple long beans, purple hull peas, purple potatoes. May […]

Farmer’s Market

This was our Tuesday haul. I’m trying something new with menu planning while I have the luxury of the farmer’s market. Instead of having a set menu and shopping list I have a set number of meals in mind. I bought ingredients that looked interesting and then put together the puzzle for a menu. We’ll […]

I’m trying my best to keep it simple because we are preparing to move in 2 WEEKS. (!!) Black bean burritos. I made a big batch of black beans along with salsa. Mixed the two together, rolled into burritos, and put most of them in the freezer. I held out a few for the fridge […]

Veg “fried” rice because I want something easy and veggie. What is traditional for fried rice? Not sure, but I plan to pack mine with carrots, onions, pea pods, and maybe even kale. I’ve had my eye on this eggplant rollatini concept for a while. Time to try it. Eggplant, spinach stuffing, marinara…What can go […]

Eggplant calzones. Roasted garlic and eggplant. Mmmmmm. There is a particular ragu recipe that I love because it combines so many different flavors like sriracha, aleppo, mint, etc. The original includes ground lamb and is delicious. I tried making it with beans….yuck. This time I plan to keep it simple as a fresh sauce for […]

Keeping it simple this week. Repeating some new faves and relying on old stand bys. Creamy tasty Thai dish with mushrooms and pea pods, served with kale rice because it’s always good and I already have the ingredients. Rice, beans, salsa, and guacamole because of visitors and it’s always a crowd pleaser, right? Pizza. Same […]

I’m being “lazy” this week. Dizzle is traveling. The little dude has decided naps are totally lame and useless. I checked out a new cookbook from the library, Martha Stewart’s Meatless. (an actual book! not kindle! It’s been a while. Weird.) So…. I’m making easy comfort food and sampling some of Martha’s creations. Nothing wrong […]

Veg burgers and fries because the burgers were already in the freezer. Fries are always good, right?? And…I’m on a mission for the perfect sauce for these veg burgers. Bolognese lasagne. LOVE. Going for a lighter version made with a mushroom bolognese and a cauliflower creamy sauce. The original was inspired by Smitten Kitchen and […]
