I have a few recent meals to share today! In no particular order, let’s jump right in…
I worked from Panera on Monday so that I could really focus. It’s not so much that I really felt like working from Panera on Monday, it was more because my son finished his last final in the morning and came home with his friend. Do you really think I was going to be able to get my work done with two teenage boys in the house? Exactly.
I escaped for some focused working time at Panera and ordered my salad for lunch. Half way through, I realized they forgot my avocado! It’s either they forget the hummus or forget the avocado! Ah well.
It’s worth stating once again that I could survive on pizza with salad every night for the rest of my life and not be disappointed. We had this grandma pie the other night (with salad but the salad isn’t pictured) with my parents but my mom doesn’t eat pizza. She doesn’t like it. Who doesn’t like pizza? Who doesn’t eat pizza? I will never understand.
Oh! We tried Greek Cove over the weekend for dinner! Greek Cove recently opened a location in Merrick so I was thrilled to try their hummus and greek salad. I will be back for sure, especially since I’m going through a phase where I do not like packaged hummus. Fresh hummus is the best.
As you know, I’m feeling basic with my meals lately and continue to make simple salads at home.
This salad in particular contains a chopped up Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger with organic romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, feta cheese, avocado, and green goddess dressing. I usually add chick peas too but it seems I forgot them for this salad. Sometimes I add a side of toasted Ezekiel bread with melted mozzarella cheese or mashed chick peas with avocado on the toast. Meals like this are easy and satisfying without requiring much effort, cooking, or ingredients.
In terms of recent desserts, I’m still all about Trader Joe’s semi-sweet chocolate chips. Handfuls every night make me really happy. 🙂
Do you know anyone who doesn’t like pizza? Do you understand their logic and taste buds?!
What easy meals have you been making lately?
