It’s getting easier and easier to eat vegetables. Of course this week, we had my mom’s help and then took some with us down to Connecticut when we visited friends.
Tuesday: Steak, Beet Salad (from my friend Mia), and green salad
veggies eaten: beets, lettuce, cucumber, green pepper, carrots
Thursday: Stuffed Green Peppers (from The New Best Recipe), Green Salad
veggies eaten: green pepper, tomato, lettuce, corn, green pepper
comment: in theory these sound really good, but this recipe was a little bland.
Saturday: Zucchini, Tomato, and Mozzarella Sandwiches (created by my friend TJ), Fish Tacos, Corn, Salsa (created by my friend Hannah)
veggies eaten: zucchini, tomato, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, corn
comments: everything was delicious. The sandwiches were grilled zucchini, with fresh sliced tomato, homemade pesto, mozzarella, balsamic vinegar, and toasted bread. I really want to try to replicate this, especially for a weekend lunch.
Monday: Chicken, Potato Gruyere Gratin
veggies eaten: potatoes
comments: The potato gratin was great and fairly quick, but it was meant to go with this lamb dish, but our lamb went bad while we were out of town so we had to substitute chicken.
