Recent Eats

Hi everyone.  Things have been busy around here as school wraps up for the year.  We have a lot of fun events going on, plus lots to do to get ready for three upcoming back-to-back trips.  (Las Vegas, Alaska, and Indianapolis!)

It definitely feels like summer is right around the corner.  It's so sunny and warm outside, and everyone seems in the mood to get out and about.

Wendy sure loves the sunshine!
I haven't made any exciting new recipes lately, but we have had some really delicious meals. Here are a few pics.

1. Ginormous salad with roasted Brussels sprouts, okra, black beans, and fresh dill, green onions, jalapeno, and carrots from our garden!  I feel like we have already gotten more out of our garden in the last few weeks than we did all of last summer.
Check out these beautiful greens!
Let's just hope everything doesn't die when the temperatures climb into the 100s.  Gardening blog post coming soon!

2. Another batch of black bean tempeh burgers.  Jay declared these to be the best veggie burgers he's ever had, and I'm not sure I can argue.  They are pretty amazing.

3. Mexican quinoa with cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, avocado, green onions from our garden, and my favorite no-cheese cheese sauce.

4. Vegan pizza - my new favorite easy dinner.  Sprouts sells a frozen whole-wheat dough that you just thaw and roll out on a baking sheet.  I top it with pizza sauce, fresh herbs, Daiya mozzarella, and tons of veggies.  It is seriously good.
On the menu for tonight: roasted tofu, sauteed kale, and millet.  Yum!
