On the blog, I usually highlight two or three meals or baked goods that I make each week. Of course, there are those other nights, where I still cook meals that I think are yummy, but they’ve either appeared on the blog before or I don’t consider them “blog worthy”. I figured I’d highlight those other guys in this post…
1) On Tuesday night, I made up a batch of shrimp stir fry of sorts. I used the sauce from Esi’s Chipotle-Lime recipe. I ate my shrimp and veggies as is. Josh had his on top of wild rice from TJs. Both bowls were topped with sesame seeds:
2) On Wednesday night, I went for shrimp again (yes, I’m still in a shrimp craving pregnancy stage ;)). This time, I made up shrimpy spinach salads. Since it was a snacky afternoon, my salad was a little on the lighter side and contained spinach, broccoli slaw, tortilla strips baked up in the oven, apple & shrimp. The salad was topped with olive oil & vinegar:
3) Thursday night, I made a half batch of a blog worthy meal, Shannon’s pumpkin & black bean enchiladas. I was a littttttle nervous to make this because Josh just started to enjoy eating pumpkin (mostly in baked goods form). The result:
Josh had his enchiladas as is and I tossed mine on top of a spinach & broccoli slaw salad. I thought they were good- they have a HUGE kick and a totally unique flavor. Josh gave them a medium rating. I think he's just not ready for savory pumpkin yet ;)
And last but not least, on a funny note…I had to go into work for a meeting on Wednesday. I work from home full time and rarely go into the office. I realized, as I was getting ready, that I have no maternity work clothes (which is becoming an issue with pants), YIKES! I threw together some normal clothes and just put on a bellaband. I took a few pictures before hand to make sure I didn’t look too ridiculous ;)
Note to self: buy some maternity work clothes ;)
What are you up to this weekend? We’re having dinner with my parents on Saturday night and brunch with friends Sunday morning. Other than that- taking Body Step Saturday AM, cleaning a bit and ??
