Chickpea and Pumpkin Curry

Chickpea and Pumpkin Curry
I love this chickpea and pumpkin curry – so rich and flavorful! Meatless Monday!  Well, at least one meal of my day will be meatless Monday.  Let’s not go totally crazy with a full meatless Monday!  Although beginning in 2019, I may just do that.  Sunday mornings are my favorite.  I still get up around the same time – well, I usually get up at...

Skinny Dough Deep Dish Pizza

Skinny Dough Deep Dish Pizza
Did you guys know that my skinny pizza dough makes great Chicago style deep dish pizza?   I could have sworn I had leftover pizza dough in my fridge, but for the life of me couldn’t find it. When I asked Hannah if she had seen it, she said “look in the leftover bin!”  Yes, there is a rectangle tray in our fridge dedicated to leftovers. ...

Delicata Squash Gnocchi

Delicata Squash Gnocchi
All hail delicata squash!  Since I stocked up on delicata (I am no almost out again!), much like when I went apple picking and made all things apple, this time I am trying to think of different says to use up the delicata squash – not that I don’t love my #delirings, because I do.  I could have those as a side dish every night...

Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Naan

Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Naan
I made it the whole week without doing a full grocery shop – whoop!  I think I spent about $5 on fruit (not counting the farmers market yesterday) but that’s about it.  It really makes you use up the food you already have, and I think I could easily go another week without shopping.  But that’s silly talk.  I’ve been gone the last two weekends,...

Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza
This grilled pizza needs to be in your life! *********************** I’ve been tracking like a boss this week and guess what?  It’s not been that hard.  When I take the time to put my food together and bring it with me, I am much better at eating what I brought, then if I tell myself “I’ll just pick up something healthy when I get downtown.” ...

Vegan Mac and Cheese

Vegan Mac and Cheese
Another busy Monday is in the books.  I knew it was going to be steady busy, so I was mentally prepared for it.  Even though I would have rather hung out with my brother and his family before they left last night.  Such is life! I made this quick picky plate for breakfast.  Hannah and Jacob bought cantaloupe last week and hadn’t cut it yet...

Fried Margherita Pizza

Fried Margherita Pizza
The best part about making waffles is that you can have breakfast for days.  I made another waffle breakfast sammie yesterday.  1/2 of my Bolthouse Farms Protein Waffle (3) an egg, spinach, ham (1) 1/2 once of cheese (2) sugar free pancake syrup (1) and tangerines for dessert.   We finally had a nice day in Chicago yesterday!  When Jenn and I went on our walk...
