I’m Getting Better At This Food Thing

It’s my favorite part of the week, recapping my meals! This past week was, knock on wood, the last restrictive week as the kitchen is near completion and everything is installed and functioning starting today. You will notice the fancy new counters in my pictures.

Lots of peanut butter topped whole wheat waffles with berries and banana.

I started making these pancakes before I realized I didn’t have any eggs. I read online that some mashed banana, that I put in my recipe anyways, would do the trick, but it wasn’t the same. Still tasty, but the egg does bring a lot to the recipe.

I made my favorite oatmeal at my neighbor’s house and it was delightful! Summer can be hot for stove top oatmeal anyways, but with fall coming there will be lots of that and baked oatmeal.

More waffles and peanut butter. For reasons many may know, my usual grocery store is out of commission, which means I can’t buy my beloved whole wheat sour dough bread. Waffles will do in its place for now.

Greek yogurt with chopped almonds, coconut, and dark chocolate flakes from Chobani and a bowl of Raisin Bran with banana was on the menu one day. I adore coconut blended Greek yogurt.

This is my cinnamon raisin overnight oatmeal that doesn’t look very appetizing, but is very good. I promise.

And this is getting embarrassing, but more waffles and peanut butter. Now that the kitchen is almost ready, I will be developing more creative recipes, or at least with more variety.

Lunches were mostly salads this week, but delicious ones. This was enjoyed with a slice of mixed berry bread that was excellent.

Another salad with a small piece of an Italian calzone that was in the fridge. Very tasty and quick on a day where I was running around and didn’t have much space or ingredients to play with.

My favorite whole wheat penne with zucchini, peppers, and baby spinach with some mozzarella on top. I have to say that the pictures make it look like I use a ton of cheese, but I am following the serving size.

Another fresh salad with any vegetables I could find in my fridge. For my starch, I enjoyed some multigrain tostitos with cheese.

My brother and a few of my cousins had lunch with my Grandma on Saturday. We all enjoyed some tasty pizza, salad, and conversation.

This was a late lunch/ early dinner concoction on Sunday. It included a salad with some buffalo chicken strips, a piece of salmon, and a piece of huffed zucchini. We cut out the middle of the zucchini and mixed it with some peppers, tomatoes, feta, olive oil, and salt and pepper.

Dinners this week started with some barbecue chicken with zucchini and peppers and macaroni and cheese on the side.

A cheeseburger between an English muffin, with some peppers, spinach, and more macaroni and cheese came another night.

I guess we had a lot of salad for dinners this week too. This one was topped with grilled chicken with honey wheat toast on the side.

This was a steak fajita salad with a side of toast after a very long run/walk that left me itching for carbs.

This chicken kebab came with rice and a Greek salad. So good and doubly enjoyed when I used leftovers to make a salad. I had this when my mom, sister, godmother, and I met for a girls’ night.

On Friday night, I had a hankering for Thai food so two of my friends and I went out. It wasn’t the best curry I had and our appetizer was still frozen in the middle, so I won’t be returning. Lots of unrest veggies in the curry though. Not so fresh chicken…

After a long run, I came home and immediately ate another coconut yogurt. I then had leftover salad and some toast, which hit the spot.

Finally, last night after a long walk, I toasted up an English muffin and peanut butter. Couldn’t have been better.

Lots of yummy meals this week and even more to come next! Yay for new kitchens!
