Happy Wednesday! I missed the party last week so I’m back to participate today. I always go a little crazy on my first grocery shopping trip after vacation so our fridge is completely chock full of yummy food right now. I’m actually having a hard time choosing what to make for my meals because there are so many good options! I’m glad that this records Tuesdays eats when the fridge is still full, its a WHOLE different story by Thursday or Friday when I’m scrounging up the last bits of leftovers and stuff in the fridge.
For lunch I had a salmon burger that I picked up from the farmer’s market along with a spinach salad and some cottage cheese.
For an afternoon snack I had some greek yogurt with chia seeds, blueberries and fresh figs. Aren’t figs so beautiful? Its like a little surprise every time you cut into one. They were on sale at the store so I couldn’t help myself. I never really know what to do with them so I usually just end up eating them in yogurt. I’m thinking I’m going to try to make a roasted fig spread with the rest of them, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I had some leftover lamb from lamb burgers the night before so I cooked up a sauce with eggplant, lamb, spices and Trader Joe’s Bruschetta. It was delicious! Looking forward to the leftovers today. I served it over a brown rice quinoa blend and then we had the usual spinach salad on the side.
Head on over to Peas & Crayons to see more Wednesday eats!
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
Watching little kids walk.
I love watching kids navigate the whole walking thing when they just learn, its so cute its hard not to smile. They always go through a stage of looking slightly inebriated, no I’m not laughing at them, I’m laughing WITH them! SO CUTE!!
