Eating Lately

I didn’t mean for the whole summer to go by!

Just to break the ice after my long absence I thought I’d share what I’ve been eating lately.

Lunches:

Grilled cheese served with Roasted Tomato Basil soup.

Homemade Tarragon Chicken Salad (leftover chicken breast, celery, red onion, tarragon, Vegenaise, dijon) with a few rice crackers and diced, baked sweet potatoes.

Another day for lunch I had the same diced, baked sweet potatoes with about a 1/2 cup of black beans, a fried egg and some salsa on the side.

Hummus, tuna salad, sliced cucumber and rice crackers.

Dinners:

Shrimp, tarragon and arugula quinoa…based on this recipe. This time I didn’t chop the shrimp, added 4 cloves of garlic instead of 1 and I made extra quinoa for a quinoa pancakes recipe I want to try this weekend!

Grilled Sriracha Honey Mustard Beef Kebabs from this recipe. I made some beef and some chicken and also added mushrooms and peppers. I accidentally picked some fiery ones and my fiance and son (who normally put hot sauce on everything) said to never buy those again. Lots of water drinking happened!

Seared salmon and an iceberg salad with tomatoes, cucumber, green onion and feta.

Salsa Verde Sour Cream Enchiladas. I also made a batch of Southwestern Salsa with Corn and Black Beans. I ate scoop with the enchiladas but really it was a make ahead so I could have it with a fried egg for upcoming lunches.

One day after doing a weights workout in the morning and biking over 4 miles that afternoon we went out to eat for dinner at Dockside. I had a greek salad topped with grilled med-rare tuna.

After searching Craigslist and looking at new bikes in local shops, I bought a used Trek beach cruiser bike this past week. I had looked at it earlier that day and returned to the same store because it was my favorite of all the ones I’d looked at…one small detail…I didn’t know it was used. When I told the store employee I wanted it (a different guy than had helped me earlier) he said, “Did you know it was used, ma’am?”. I asked how much it was and immediately knew I’d made the right decision. Instead of the new price of over $450 I got it for $250! Of course then I had to go and buy a detachable basket!
