recent eats

i owe you guys a major update.

brad and i have been eating pretty well lately, even though i haven’t been showing you a lot of the meals. i started meal planning when brad and i moved in and i’ve finally been making a dent in my “recipes to make” starred folder in my google reader. 🙂

so here’s a run-down of some pretty awesome food that we’ve had lately.

*****

first, i won a giveaway a while ago from anna for some matt’s munchies fruit leathers and they arrived recently! i’ve been snacking on these a lot since i got them.

so far, mango is my favorite flavor! (not to be confused with the island mango flavor pictured…)

*****

i’ve also had some pretty amazing breakfasts.

lots of overnight oats as usual – topped with frozen blubes and love grown foods granola!

*

also, i recently discovered this awesome apple honey butter from trader joe’s.

i love this stuff! it’s awesome to just drizzle on a bowl of plain yogurt and fruit.

we’re almost out…

*

and last weekend, we actually got to make a breakfast at home and take our time. so i requested an egg sandwich!

piled high on a whole wheat english muffin with spinach, a little cheese, ham (or turkey?) tomato, and runny egg.

*****

i know i already told you guys about when i made jenn’s fiesta quinoa, but i did very much enjoy the leftovers!

warmed up quinoa on top of a big pile of spinach with a side of guacamole! not as good as the stuffed mushroom version, but still pretty great!

*****

now, on to dinners! i’ve had janetha’s recipe for chicken cordon bleu casserole starred for a long time in my reader and i finally made it!

i liked it, but i didn’t love it. i’m pretty sure that’s my fault though. i squeezed the mustard bottle too hard and added at least double what i was supposed to. i definitely tasted an overwhelming mustard flavor, and i bet janetha did not intend that! i blame me, not the recipe.

*

we also ate up some more of the white fish that my mom and stepdad caught!

i cooked it the same way as last time – baked at 350* for about 20 minutes with some lemon pepper. and that’s it! simple and delicious. we ate it with some steamfresh veggies – because sometimes you just need to be lazy! 😉

*****

and plenty of dessert has been enjoyed around here lately (and is probably the reason i don’t fit into my bridesmaid dress for my friend kel’s wedding next month – gahhhhh). one notable treat is this rhubarb crisp.

sorry for the blur – i was too excited to eat it!

my friend is out of the country for two weeks right now, so she asked me if i would mind stopping by her house twice while she’s gone to cut rhubarb and asparagus. *sigh* if i have to. 😉

what to do with lots of rhubarb? make a crisp of course! i just googled rhubarb crisp and used the first pretty standard recipe that popped up.

*****

geez. i’m not sure why i’ve been slacking so much on showing you my meals lately. i’ll try to do better! 🙂

have a great night!

    Those blueberries look so delicious! Don’t you wish we had berries growing in our backyards?? And mango – fresh and dried – is one of my all-time favorites. 🙂

  6. Oh my gosh! I would love it if someone asked me to use their asparagus! It’s my favorite!!!

    That rhubarb crisp sounds divine! I have seen rhubarb at our Farmer’s Market the last few weeks and have hesitated when it came time to buy it because I didn’t know what to do with it…now I do 🙂

  8. Yum! I am going to have to look for that Honey Apple Butter when I’m back East in a few weeks and able to go to Trader Joe’s.

    Or maybe I’ll just make my own…

  9. Looks like you guys have definitely been eating well! 🙂

  10. Dang, sorry about the mustard fiasco! I bet I would have loved it still, though, because I love mustard!

  11. My family rhubarb recipe is SO good. (And easy)
    Yellow cake mix (prepared as directed) + rhubarb tossed with sugar +little carton of heavy whipping cream.
    Sprinkle rhubarb in bottom of pan, pour over cake mix then pour over heavy whipping cream.
    I highly recommend it – I’m going to try to make it soon!
