A few months ago, I posted about one of our cats getting into a bag of nutritional yeast. It is happening again! Yesterday I found Frida in the spice cabinet tearing open the bag of nutritional yeast I had in there and feasting upon its contents. The past 24 hours has basically been Frida meowing in front of the cabinet door, clawing at the cabinet door, and giving me the stink-eye whenever I’m in the kitchen. Thankfully, she has not yet peed in the nutritional yeast, which is what happened last time one of the cats discovered it. Why are my cats such freaky weirdos? This is why we can’t have nice things. Like nutritional yeast.
Oh, and here’s what I ate this week:
Sesame-Glazed Cauliflower Wings from Cupcakes & Kale Chips // I guess cauliflower wings are my new thing now. Which is kind of funny because I’ve never even had chicken wings. We loved the sweet, gingery sauce on these. If you’re not a fan of cauliflower, these will win you over!
Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread from A Girl Worth Saving // This bread is completely grain-free and you seriously would not know it. It’s dense, tender, and delicious. Kelly’s blog is paleo and while I have no plans to swap out my morning oats for bacon, she posts lots of healthy (vegan!) desserts, so I’m always stalking her blog for those recipes. Oh, and you really need to make this bread because it is amaaaaazing.
Mushroom Skillet Lasagna from Savory Simple // Skillet lasagna has been on my to-make list for a while and I finally got around to doing it. Well, actually, Chris made it because I threw out my upper back somehow and have been unable to bend or turn my head since Wednesday night. Fun times! Anyway, this made a delicious, filling dinner, with lots of leftovers too.
Roasted Acorn Squash with Chile and Garlic from 80Twenty // YUM! I love easy sides like this–roast some acorn squash wedges, whisk together the dressing while the wedges are baking, and then drizzle the dressing on top. Simple! These were so good.
Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon Chia Pudding from Culinary Colleen // I always make chocolate chia pudding, but I decided to live dangerously and try vanilla this week. Normally I’m not a fan of vanilla unless it’s made with vanilla beans and since this pudding is made with vanilla beans, I was a happy camper. I love chia pudding!
Sweet Chili, Hoisin, Tofu & Vegetable Noodles from Fuss Free Cooking // I marinated my own tofu for this and used soba noodles since that’s what I had on hand. Instead of choy sum, I used bok choy. This made two big bowls of noodle-y deliciousness!
