What We Ate Wednesday: Every Wednesday I write a blog post with all of the vegetarian dinners we ate this week.
Oops! I started this on Wednesday but didn’t finish it! Sorry I am a day late.
Wednesday: BBQ “Chicken” Pizza
I made this pizza with this new “chicken.” It was DELICIOUS! If you want to learn more about this new company, Beyond Meat, read this article by Alton Brown. It is a great product for people who are thinking about eating less meat!
Thursday: Dinner Club
Our dinner club theme this month was seafood. I was so excited because I have been wanting to make this recipe, but haven’t because Ben doesn’t eat shrimp. It was great!
Friday: Hot Dogs, Tater Tots, and Salad
This is my favorite dinner for when I feel like having a junky meal. It is good and not as bad for you as it could be. Haha! (We use these “hot dogs” and they are super yummy and not nearly as processed as most fake meats.)
Saturday: Quinoa Taco Bowl
I found this recipe on pinterest and it was so good! I made my own taco seasonings (just cumin, smoked paprika, cayenne and salt), skipped the olives (olives in Mexican food makes me mad!), and subbed greek yogurt for the sour cream. It was REALLY good. Everyone loved it and Sam normally turns up his nose at quinoa.
Sunday: Mother’s Day Dinner
Ben and the kids were so good to me this year! To finish off a wonderful day of fun, we had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Columbia Firehouse. We got to eat outside and I had a delicious kale salad, mussels, and frites. So great!
Monday: Greek Orzo Salad
I wanted to make my sister’s greek salad (tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, olives, red onion, feta, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper) into a full meal for dinner so I added a half pound of orzo and a can of black eyed peas. It was delicious!
Tuesday: Fried Rice
This is a go-to easy meal. I just marinate extra firm tofu, cut into cubes, in soy sauce and then fry it up in a non-stick pan over medium high heat until it’s crisp on all sides. Then I fry a little cooked brown rice in a skillet with oil, add frozen veggies, and season with more soy sauce. I scramble and egg right in the pan (just scoot everything out of the way and then mix in once cooked).
