So, I’ve been in a blogging slump lately. I’ve been in a bit of a life slump lately, I guess you can say. Some things are going on in my head and I’m not so sure I’m ready to talk about it on here, but I do have some delicious meals and new product finds to share!
I stopped at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods (always a bad idea) after work on Tuesday. I picked up a few new finds that I’ve used since then.
Tuesdays dinner included goat cheese medallions from TJ’s. How convenient are these? 1 oz portions = perfect for crumbling on a salad!
I added strawberries and walnuts as well. I also sautéed broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and garlic chicken sausage in olive oil and added some s&p.
Simple & easy dinner.
Wednesdays breakfast was a classic, but still good!
A whole wheat english muffin was toasted before topping one side with peanut butter & the other with almond butter. Then bananas, cinnamon, honey, & chia seeds were layered on.
Extra banana = great for a shmear of peanut butter.
After another wine tasting, we stopped at Joe’s restaurant for dinner.
I got my new favorite dish. Swordfish served over a farro salad and swiss chard in a lemon butter sauce with chive oil. I’ll be recreating the farro salad as soon as I find key lime juice! Amazing. (Doesn’t this piece of swordfish look like a heart!?)
Today, I used another new product. I can’t say that I haven’t had truffle oil before, because I definitely have! I just haven’t bought it in a while because it’s so darn expensive. $10 per 2 oz.!
I made Naomi’s baba ganoush, substituting truffle oil for the olive oil and truffle salt for the regular salt.
Obviously it would work just as well with chickpeas to make truffle hummus, which will be next on my list!
That’s about all kids.
