WIAW: Running Low on Veggies

Mid-Week! More food! What could be better? This past few weeks I've been making some delicious meals. I don't think there's been one thing I've made that I haven't devoured. Ok, maybe I'm bragging a bit. But, it's really hard to mess up fresh vegetables, they're just SO good.


Breakfast: Oatmeal with golden raisins and pine nuts. Do you guys like pine nuts? They're like crack to me, and expensive, but so worth it. They have a wonderful piny taste to them.
Lunch: Whole wheat pita stuffed with pinto beans, onion, spinach and a Greek yogurt, horseradish sauce. Green beans, apricots and blueberries on the side.
Snack: Pita chips, hummus, carrots, mushrooms, cherries and Gouda.
First off, I'm not sure there's a better combination then Sabra hummus and Stacy's pita chips. I think the grocery store knows this too because their sales always go together. This week it was 2 for $6 on the hummus and buy one get one free on the pita chips. Score!! And raw carrot in hummus is very, very good.

Are you wondering what I did with those fiddlehead ferns? Well, I sauted them with olive oil and garlic and a bunch of swiss chard. Then added a few of our Chipotle Cheddar Cheese curds. I really liked them, the best way to describe the flavor is... green. They tasted fresh.
Dinner: Pasta tossed with swiss chard, fiddleheads, curds and stuffed eggplant(onion, spinach, zucchini).

Overall, another great week of food. Farmers' markets on Saturday again because my veggies are running low, hopefully I can find something new to try. If not, well, I'm definitely buying more swiss chard. I love that stuff!

  1. Big carrots and hummus became my favorite cheap snack/lunch when I was living in London. I could a bag of giant organic carrots for one pound and two containers of hummus for 1.50. Let's just say with a packet of naan bread at 55 pence that would feed me for a week of lunches.
