weekend(s) review: a whole bunch at once

so. hi there.

yeah, yeah. i haven't been regularly posting and you may (or may not) find that annoying, but i have to say it is good for me. it is good to break the pattern of 'i must post what i ate last weekend on monday or else the world will crumble' - because you know what? nothing happened at all except a backlog of pictures on my phone. you survived, i survived. it's all ok.

so, here it goes. a whole bunch of food at once. the best way for food to come. in massive quantities...

kale, mushroom, and riccota calzones with whole wheat dough from trader joe's + side salad. these are delicious and one of my husband's favorites.

skinny tuna noodle casserole + roasted Brussels sprouts. if i could sleep while encased in this casserole i would (i.e., it is wonderful).

honey roasted vegetable and smoked gouda pasta. this was good, but i remember it being better and there is too much pasta and not enough veggies!

crockpot bbq beer chicken sandwiches + un-fried pickles + kale slaw with red cabbage and carrots. so these pickles were such a let down. lesson learned: fried > un-friend. what was i thinking? on the bright side, this kale slaw was perfection.

crowd-pleasing tex mex casserole from oh she glow's new cookbook + simple salad. is it just me or does all homemade mexican food taste alike? i wasn't disapointed, i wasn't thrilled. i was just....

oh she glows maple-cinnamon apple pear baked oatmeal (p. 39 of her cookbook; made this several times before, delicious) + baked eggs on a bed of roasted tomatoes (yum) + fruit . i ate this and then died. it was that good.

dijon almond-crusted tilapia + salt & pepper caramelized Brussels sprouts (from how sweet eat's new cookbook you must buuuuy it) + sweet potato/apple mash (roasted two sweet potatoes and one apple with olive oil, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, & ginger. after roasting put in food processor with almond milk and earth balance until creamy). 

cooking light's shrimp fettuccine alfredo + roasted green beans. this is decadent but not at the same time - like perfect food should be.

oatmeal pumpkin breakfast cookies make the perfect fall mid-morning snack. yum!
