Every Wednesday I write a blog post with all of the vegetarian dinners we ate this week.
Sorry, late again!! But I made a lot of good dinners this week!!
On a side note, I just found this video and am finding it SO interesting. It is about the foods that are most commonly linked to death. Lots of good facts but also surprisingly entertaining!
Wednesday: Caitlin’s Cobb Salad
I decided to make my own, vegetarian version of a Cobb salad. And it was great! I worked off this recipe but subbed these roasted chickpeas for bacon (salty, smokey, and crispy) and I subbed cubed mozzarella for the chicken. I also added diced pears because I had seen that in another recipe and knew we would all enjoy that addition! And I just used romaine lettuce. I think next time I would do a combo of romaine and spinach, just to make it healthier. The salad turned out great and everyone loved it! I highly recommend the Caitlin Cobb!
Thursday: Beans and Rice
I made these delicious beans and served them with some brown rice, a leeeettle bit of shredded cheese, avocados, and tomatoes. Yum yum!! This is such an easy, healthy, delicious meal!
Friday: Hot Dogs, Sweet Potato Tots, and Green Salad
I made yummy field roast “hot dogs,” sweet potato tater tots from Trader Joe’s (next time I’ll just make my own sweet potato fries or spring for regular tater tots), and a spinach salad. Easy and good.
Saturday: Dinner Out
We decided to have a family dinner night out! We went to Pete’s Apizza which was very meh, in my opinion. The pizza wasn’t that great and it was overpriced. Oh well, we had fun!
Sunday: Curried Cauliflower Salad
I LOVE this dish! We ate it with a little french bread on the side.
Monday: Dinner Club
I hosted our neighborhood dinner club this month and my theme was Pioneer Woman recipes! I got the idea here. It was really fun and all the food was, of course, delicious! I made this creamy pesto pasta (but with whole wheat pasta) and these orange muffins for dessert (they’re called muffins but they taste more like donuts!)
Tuesday: Taquitos and Guacamole
These taquitos were good, but I added some black beans in with the filling to make them more, um, filling! I served them with guacamole, made by Ben. Delicioso!
