I hope you all had a great weekend and Monday! I was actually pretty busy this weekend, working all three days and dealing with a lot of other stuff. Now that it’s been consistently summer-like (um, minus the past three cloudy and cool days), light and refreshing have been the themes of my meals lately …
I was craving Japanese for dinner, but being broke and having lots of Asian ingredients on hand left me with a HUGE and satisfying dinner! I broke up a whole heart of Romaine and topped with with leftover chopped cucumber, a few random slices of tomato and dressed it with Bolthouse Farms Asian Ginger dressing – the best. I also steamed up some shrimp and broccoli, sprayed with Bragg’s, doused in garlic powder and sprinkled with red pepper flakes.
I also heated up a packet of Trader Joe’s miso soup (why is a serving half a packet? Insanity) and added more steamed shrimp and broccoli. LOTS of good, nutritious food to fully satisfy my Asian craving :0)
Lunch at work one day was the best summer salad ever.
In a Tupperware container, naturally. Bigger than it appears. Spring mix greens, sliced strawberries, a beet, and the star – goat cheese. Topped with plain old balsamic vinegar upon eating. That slice of millet was replaced with a whole wheat English muffin, which was gladly used to sop up leftover balsamic and any goat cheese crumbles that had managed to escape my eager fork.
Dinners have looked a lot like this …
Roasted veggies + a crack-wrap. In this case, green beans, portobello, and tomatoes with a crack-wrap stuffed with roasted garlic hummus and plain Laughing Cow wedge. Last night’s came with the addition of roasted carrots and onions, and Frank’s to the wrap. No pic, but just as delicious. BTW, green beans go great with ketchup. Just FYI. And I eat them like fries. New obsession.
