It’s Saturday afternoon and I’m sitting here eating a tomato, avocado and bacon sandwich with lots of mayo and fresh basil. I’ve really appreciated having fresh summer produce around after last weekend’s farmers market trip.
Since Finn is napping, I thought it’d be a good time to pop in and share what I ate last week. I have to be creative with my work hours these days so sometimes blogging happens at 10 p.m. or on the weekends. 🙂
Smoothie bowl topped with fig, walnut and tahini granola.
A couple of mornings I also had greek yogurt with granola and berries. One morning I had a morning glory muffin from Sunflour.
Cue all of the tomato sandwiches and fresh peaches.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (Insert heart eyes emoji!)
One day I added deli meat and cheese but truly, this sandwich doesn’t need it.
On Thursday I met a friend for lunch at Bulla Gastrobar (pronounced Boo-Ya…isn’t that funny?). It’s recently opened Spanish-inspired restaurant in the SouthPark area. There are multiple locations across the US.
I had a salad with spinach, arugula, beets, candied nuts, salmon and Spanish goat cheese.
The interior was very clean and inviting. The menu looked interesting and I would go back to try some of the more Spanish-themed dishes. I went with a salad on this visit because I don’t love warm and/or heavy meals at lunch, especially in the middle of the summer when it’s so hot out.
I pretty much stuck with my meal plan for the week. It was helpful to have one mapped out because it kept me accountable to actually cook food since I knew I had it on hand. This was roasted salmon, cauliflower and sweet potatoes.
This is one of those meals that my dad is probably shaking his head at but I swear, it totally worked and tasted so good.
Dinner two other nights was this one-pan roasted dinner of spinach chicken sausage, sweet potatoes and okra.
Again, I put some of the kale pesto hummus on there because I could eat that stuff with a spoon. It’s delicious and so flavorful.
I saved some of the cookies I baked on Wednesday and have been making my way through the stash. Doesn’t get any better than homemade chocolate chip cookies. For those of you asking about the recipe, I used the one on the back of the Ghirardelli chocolate chips but increased the salt to one teaspoon because YUM to being able to taste a slight saltiness with CCCs.
Favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe?
Do you like tomato sandwiches? What about okra?
The rice/egg/veggie burger bowl…yum or yuck?
