Soba noodles with shrimp, broccoli and edamame. I made this for my sister Angela and my nephews when I went to visit them for the day. The kids tore it up!

Canned albacore “salad” with celery, onion, relish, dijon and vegenaise. Served on toasted 9 grain bread. I also ate a few celery chunks and some leftover green peas.

Fried eggs. Rye toast. Banana and strawberry slices.

Huevos rancheros from Lunasea. YUM!

Dinners:

Navy beans cooked with a ham bone that I froze back in the spring. Also made a pumpkin chocolate chip bread and corn muffins while the beans were cooking.

Baked croaker and spot fish with lemon. Locally caught, because we caught the fish! Salad.

Weekly Eats

We ate out A LOT this week. Mostly because of being busy and away from home…and partly because it’s hard to say “no” to friends who want to go out! Here is our week in food:

Sunday

Lunch: Sat on the outdoor patio at Dockside. Fish tacos for me!

Dinner: Navy bean soup cooked with a ham bone that I acquired from Travis’ grandfather. When we visited him last week a ham was being baked and I asked if I could have the bone to make soup. The answer was yes…as long as I brought them the leftovers!

Monday

Lunch: Had an unexpected trip to the doctor and was there from 11am to 1:30pm. We were starving when we left there so out to lunch it was! We went to Toast and both had the special of the day: fish tacos! 2 days in a row! Very good food and fast service!

Dinner: Orange and soy glazed baby back ribs served with steamed cauliflower sprinkled with nutritional yeast and some roasted asparagus.

Tuesday

Lunch: Visited my sister Angela and she made taquitos for lunch!

Dinner: Leftover ribs served with peas and pine nut couscous.

Wednesday

Lunch: Leftovers

Dinner: Grilled flank steak with cilantro chimichurri. Then I mixed a bunch of lacinato kale, a 14 ounce can diced tomatoes and some leftover navy beans to make a delicious side dish!

Thursday

Lunch: Was out on business with Travis and we had an early 11am lunch at Cafe Caturra. My choice was the tarragon tuna salad sandwich with a side salad (instead of chips).

Dinner: We got stuck out in the southside waiting for our car to be ready (it got an inspection, a recalled part replaced, 4 new tires and a detail) so we headed to Sushi-O for happy hour appetizers which ended up being all I wanted that night.

Friday

I had a meeting with a friend and financial planner in the morning at Urban Farmhouse and enjoyed a chai latte and a slice of banana bread. The latte was SO frothy!

Lunch: Chicken and spinach wrap from Ellwood Thompson’s

Dinner: This is kinda weird…we never do this…why am I making disclaimers?…we made flank steak again tonight…maybe it was so we could eat more chimichurri…I don’t know. But it was good and so were the roasted brussel sprouts!

Saturday

Lunch: Leftovers

Dinner: Out to eat with 5 of our friends at Portico
