Different Meals + Wild Salmon + Latkes

I have so many meals to share that I’ve enjoyed recently and some of them are even different from what I usually eat!

It’s been quite a while since I made a copycat version of the barbeque ranch salad from The Cheesecake Factory.

The other day it just dawned on me that I had all of the ingredients in the house because my son bought a can of Whole Foods 365 fried onions. While they aren’t the same as the freshly fried onion strings at The Cheesecake Factory, they worked really well.

In the salad:

  • Black Beans
  • Corn
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Avocado
  • Romaine
  • Whole Foods 365 Organic Light Ranch Dressing
  • Onion Strings

I didn’t think I would come back to the English muffin-avocado-egg combination so quickly but I did! This time, I had it with a salad too.


My plate X 2 of salad with Sicilian pizza from La Piazza. Usually, I go the grandma pizza route but the Sicilian looked so good that I couldn’t pass it up.


I had a bowl from Cava recently — it was just fine. I say that every time about Cava.


Look who made salmon!

I decided I should eat salmon more often (let’s see if it happens – I’m really not a fish eater but wild salmon is so HEALTHY) so I bought wild-caught sockeye salmon from Whole Foods.

Wild salmon is packed with:

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • Protein
  • Vitamin D
  • B Vitamins
  • Potassium
  • Selenium
  • Astaxanthin

For this vegetarian eater who rarely eats fish, this salmon was actually pretty delicious.

With a potato latke topped with applesauce because….it’s Hanukkah time.


I can’t take credit for making the latkes this year. Why should I bother to make them myself when the latkes at Shoprite are so good? They have small and large, and both regular potato and sweet potato latkes.


I had a larger latke with applesauce on the side of roasted cauliflower mixed with quinoa for dinner — what a great combination.


And finally, tis the season for hot chocolate!

I’ve had a few cups of hot chocolate from Dunkin Donuts at night recently and have enjoyed every sip.
