Food Photo Friday
It's another week and another post of foods I've been eating lately. I promise, I am cooking a little bit. I had an amazing chili night with my fellow veg friends, Sheridan and Drew. I'll give you all the details next week.
I have been eating out with the office at least once a week. It keeps me updated on what's going on, and it's fun to see what everyone is up to. I am currently loving Izzy's black bean soup with the veggie melt (no cheese.) I'm also a big fan of the veggie wrap at Bar Louie. To make it vegan, you have to ask for no mayo and no cheese sauce, but make sure to check it, because the staff isn't always so great. The service is never that good, but the food is great. The hummus is pretty tasty, though, and they pile it in.
I got this monstrosity at Senor Tequila. I asked for the Burrito California, without meat, cheese or sour cream. They added guac and fajita veggies inside. They gave me a side of lettuce and tomato to pile on top. It was not something I could finish, but it was tasty.
Yum and yum.
For the most part, though, I have been eating really simple meals at home. I finally made it to the grocery store and stocked up on tons of veggies. I am loving butternut squash and black lentils. Pile them together, throw a little hot sauce on there, and you have a meal. You can add an olive oil biscuit for good measure.
I had another half squash to eat a couple days later, so I scooped it out and had it with some greens. That was a perfect Saturday lunch.
As I mentioned, I made some amazing chili over the weekend. The house smelled amazing. I will tell you all about it soon.
I don't make everything from scratch. I tried out this soup and was happily surprised by how tasty it was. As you can see, I'm on a bit of a soup kick.
I will probably keep this stocked for dinner in a rush. It's very yummy.
I have been loving toast with avocado and tomato lately. That's pretty much what I ate all weekend. I guess I'm saying goodbye to summer and good tomatoes. These were not great.
On Sunday, I made a huge pot of ramen, broccoli and carrots, taking a page out of Bianca's playbook. She preaches the virtues of ramen on Sunday, and oh boy, did this hit the spot.
Last but not least, this came in the mail the other day. I have not had a chance to make anything, but I will, and I'll tell you all about it. If you haven't seen their promo on youtube, check it out!
