weekend review: cook less, eat more

This weekend was spent out of town going out to eat and attending a fall-themed food festival. While there I indulged in delicacies like fried green tomatoes, chicken tiki masala, ribs, vegetable samosas, and chocolate velvet gelato. 

When Sunday night came around, all I could think of was eating as many vegetables as possible and turned to a previously-made favorite. Veggie pizza with a side of veggies? Yes, please.

Figure 1. Veggie topping for tonight's 'summer veggie pizza'. It isn't summer, but I don't care. Onion and red bell pepper sauteed in olive oil along with corn and asparagus to be roasted on the pizza.

Figure 2. Side salad with creamy Greek yogurt dressing a la Running with Spoons. For one serving: 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1 tsp dijon mustard, and Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb topping. Spinach salad includes broccoli, mushrooms, pickled beets, green onions, and tomatoes.
Figure 3. This pizza deserves a close-up.
Figure 4. Sunday night's dinner: summer veggie pizza and creamy spinach salad (I went back for second's on both).
