Cheesy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Leeks

Cheesy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Leeks

Brussels sprouts have become one of my very favorite veggies! But, all I ever do is roast them. Usually at least one batch each week. They are delicious. Really. Leeks are a really great veggie too. I’ve gotten in the habit of using them frequently because I make my Creamed Spinach & Leeks recipe so … Continue reading

Jumpin’ In The River

Jumpin’ In The River

Sunday I was a kayaking, food prepping machine. Okay, maybe that is an exaggeration. I did, however, again go kayaking with Five Cent Femme. We did the awesome Barton to Gallup trip down the Huron River, with the oh-so-exciting jaunt through Ann Arbor’s new Argo Cascades. Love it! Kayaking was just what I needed! The … Continue reading

Makeover Chicken Enchilada Soup

Makeover Chicken Enchilada Soup

I told you I bought a lot of greens this week. You can call me Salad Monster. I don’t know. I just know I’ve been eating a lot of salad. Like yesterday, I had an overflowing bowl of mixed greens with peaches, gorgonzola, and red onion. Yumtastic! Pretty sure I threw some sort of dressing … Continue reading

Shrimp Cobb Salad

Shrimp Cobb Salad

As planned, Wednesday I made Thai Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup. This recipe is awesome, with a really flavorful, complex broth, but I think I am getting a little burnt out on it because I have made it so many times over the past several weeks! Might need to wait a while before I make it again. … Continue reading

With inspiration from this recipe for “Super Italian Chopped Salad,” I made just that – a big hearty salad – for dinner on Thursday night. In the mix: romaine green pepper kalamata olives pepper jack cheese … Continue reading

Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon Feta Salad

Another summer weekend done. This Sunday morning I actually did set my alarm, unlike the day before – but it was for a 10:00 AM wake up call. Not shabby! After I got up, for “brunch” I ate the other half of my MBD’s Coach’s Reuben with half of a big pickle spear and a … Continue reading

Northwest Salmon Salad

Northwest Salmon Salad

Summer makes me happy. Especially when one of my Tuesday work tasks is to sit outside for 45 minutes directing people where to go. Yeeeah, boi. Just enjoying that view, that sun, those 80 degrees. After a somewhat unconventional work day, I headed home (my commute traffic has been terrible lately!), and tossed together this … Continue reading
