The days literally pass by in warp speed. Time flies!
Okay, here’s a look at recent eats this week. I’m proud of the eats because they’ve been mostly homemade and healthy despite work insanity.
Daily smoothies. Lots of coffee. The perfect fuel to start the day.
Leftover pizza and salad.
Salad with a mix of arugula and Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch, avocado, honey goat cheese, carrots, cucumbers, celery, chicken breast, dried cranberries and pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds.
On Monday I made a big batch of bolognese sauce with local grass fed ground beef and lots of veggies. I served it over spaghetti squash with parmesan. I’ve eaten this twice this week.
I rarely eat salads for dinner but I was craving one on Tuesday. Arugula, spinach, carrots, celery, toasted pecans, dried cranberries, feta, tomatoes, avocado and honey dijon chicken breast.
On Wednesday night I met friends for wine and dinner. I ordered the most amazing, to die for, killer scallops of all time. They were the size of golf balls and served over a creamy butternut bacon mixture.
And we plowed through two orders of truffle fries for the table.
It’s honey crisp apple season! I stocked up on organic honey crisp apples last weekend at Trader Joe’s and have been eating them with peanut butter for a snack. So good!
What’s your favorite type of apple? For me it’s a tie between a pink lady and honey crisp. I do not care for red delicious or granny smith. And any “mealy” or “soft” apple is a no go for me! I need cold and crisp!
