Menu Recap - Week of April 12

Sunday, April 19, 2009

For some reason this week didn't go as planned, but I'm okay with that! It stemmed from various appointments that were scheduled after I made the meal plan, I think. I'm not too upset about it - life happens!

I seem to have lost the pictures I took of my Easter dinner. The boys really enjoyed the meatloaf (All You Need is Loaf from ESBM) along with lots of veggies and mashed potatoes. I didn't end up making tofu for myself, instead I just enjoyed a huge plate of veggies and had some nuts throughout the day. 

Quick Protein Salad (inspired by refresh)
I ate this about three times throughout the week and I just love it. 
I actually took multiple pictures of this salad and proceeded to bombard Joey with them when he came home. The marinated tofu cubes are delightful and it is just a great combination for a salad. I added some avocado and hummus instead of the chickpeas and drizzled it with 2 tsp. of flax oil - yum!! 

Pizza & Broccoli
I used the same crust as last time, and made the pizza with pesto, ground pork, green peppers and zucchini. It was quite yummy! I tried pre-baking the crust this time and that worked a little bit better, although I did manage to crack the crust in the center - oops! So I didn't win points for presentation, but it sure did taste good. 

Big Carrot Take-Away
Lunch on Saturday came courtesy of the deli counter at The Big Carrot. We enjoyed sweet potatoes with dill, coleslaw, thai tofu and noodles. I definitely did not finish this plate, but Joey was happy to help me out. I love their take away counter!! 

Vanessa's Birthday Celebration
On Saturday night, my best friend from junior high/high school was celebrating her 25th birthday (and getting into law school!) with a Hawaiian themed party. 
(Birthday girl Vanessa, me and Alicia - the three of us were inseparable in junior high and high school)

Joey and I managed to find the place (Navigating Mississauga and GO Transit just isn't my forte) 
There was quite an impressive selection of food, but I had to stick to the basics because I couldn't really wander around asking what was in everything! I enjoyed some greens with rice and chicken along with some strawberries. 
Joey got to be a little more adventurous with various noodles and meats but I enjoyed my plate. It was a fun night with Joey and old friends!
