What I Ate This Week | A Little Taste of Summer

With temperatures in the 80s and 90s(!) this week, I found myself gravitating to summer-y foods when it came to planning our meals. I have to admit, I was kind of excited when I went to the grocery store and the display of asparagus had been replaced with fresh corn. We try to eat in season and summer is obviously the best time for that–and it’s almost here!

Here’s what I ate this week:

Veggie Fajitas Veggie Fajitas // After making my Salsa Baked Potatoes, I had leftover fajita seasoning, so I decided to make fajitas this week. Unfortunately, the perfect looking onion I bought for these ended up being rotten in the middle (don’t you hate when that happens?), so while these fajitas were good, they were definitely missing a little something.

Mango Cilantro Pizzas Mango Basil Cilantro Personal-Sized Tortilla Pizzas // I made these with salsa instead of pizza sauce and cilantro instead of basil. But oh, they were delicious! Why haven’t I thought of putting mango on pizza before?!

Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich Eggplant Parmesan Sandwiches // Make these now! I made a few changes (I didn’t use the cherry peppers or butter and I sauteed the eggplant instead of frying it), but with the tomatoes and eggplant and basil, these tasted like summer–delicious! I can’t wait until we get eggplant and tomatoes from the garden and I can make them again.

Chipotle Lime Corn Chiptole-Lime Corn // This was from Everyday Food, but since it was in the current issue, the recipe isn’t online yet so I can’t link to it. Sorry! I usually buy local produce when possible, but I just couldn’t resist buying some corn when I saw it at the grocery store, even if it was from Florida.

Soba Noodle Salad with Cucumber and Mango Soba Noodle Salad with Cucumber and Mango // I impulsively bought a package of matcha soba noodles the last time I was at the Japanese market and then I had to figure out what to do with it. This salad, with the sweet flavors of rice vinegar and mango, seemed like the perfect dish to use the noodles in (and it was!). This is another recipe I’ll be making again this summer, hopefully with cucumbers from my garden.

I also have a wee bit of news to share: I’m changing the name of my blog again I decided to set up a newsletter with MailChimp! My Feedburner email subscriptions will still work, so if you’re subscribing that way and you’re happy with it, you can keep on keeping’ on. Otherwise, you can click here to subscribe to Oh My Veggiemail. You’ll get an email every day that I publish a new post, so about 4 a week. MailChimp will let me to keep track of subscriptions and statistics a little better than Feedburner and it allows for more customization, which I like.

      The sandwiches were amazing–I’ve been craving them all week! I love eggplant parmesan, but it’s even better in sandwich form. :)

    Everything looks so good! Now that you mention it, I don’t think I used the butter either. Some recipes are so over the top. lol
    I really really want to dig into that bowl of chipotle lime corn, and luckily for me, I have the current issue of Everyday Food!

      I love Everyday Food, especially the section with easy sides, which is where this recipe came from. I rarely make anything from there that’s not a hit and this corn was no exception!

      I’m a soba hoarder too–I always buy them and find them when I’m cleaning out the pantry. They are so good, I don’t know why I forget to use them…

      It was so good–seriously, Everyday Food is one of the best food magazines ever. I hardly ever get a recipe from there that we don’t love.

    What a delicious week of food! Those soba noodles sound especially good. And I don’t know why I never thought to put mango on a pizza either – one of my favourite pizza toppings is pineapple so I’m sure I would love mango too!

    • Kiersten Frase says

      I love pineapple pizza too! I always get it with green olives, which I know sounds bizarre, but it’s such a good salty/sweet combination. :D

    Your food always looks so good. I love the idea of adding mango to a pizza. It looks delicious. I soba noodle salad is so timely. I just bought my second package of soba noodles and this is the perfect recipe to use them in, I think. Thanks!

      Too bad you don’t have anymore of those champagne mangoes to use in the salad! They were on sale at our little local grocery store this week (I was shocked to find them there!), so I’m stocked up again. :)
