What I Ate This Week | End of the World Pizza

Christmas is next week! Are you ready? I’m getting there. Today I’m starting my baking and I guess I’m going to have to find some time in between the cookies and candy and fudge to wrap presents. (Or throw presents in gift bags I’m reusing from last Christmas. That’s Plan B.)

Here’s what I ate this week:

Mellow Mushroom Thai Dye Pizza with Tofu End of the World Pizza! // So did I mention my husband and I have colds? Neither of us felt like cooking last night and I figured, hey, if the world ends tomorrow, I’m going to be kicking myself for cooking when we could have gotten pizza. So we got Mellow Mushroom. You know why I love Mellow Mushroom? They offer JERK TOFU(!) as a topping. We got that on the Thai Dye pizza.

Tortellini with Lemon & Brussels Sprouts Tortellini with Lemon & Brussels Sprouts from Everyday Food // This photo is of the leftovers–there wasn’t enough light to take a picture when this was fresh. (Shaking my fist at you, short winter days.) I roasted the sprouts and used less butter than the original recipe called for, but this was easy and delicious.

Pesto Twice-Baked Potatoes Pesto Twice-Baked Potatoes // I might do a full recipe post for this eventually, but they’re so easy, you can be pretty imprecise and they’ll still turn out tasty. Bake some potatoes, scoop out the insides and mash them with pesto and some plain yogurt, sour cream, or silken tofu. Season with salt and pepper, stuff the filling back into the potatoes, top with a little bit of Parmesan cheese if you want, and bake them until the cheese melts. I love these!

HelloFresh Vegetarian Curry Virtuous Vegetarian Curry with Toasted Cashews & Brown Rice from HelloFresh // This week I had the chance to try HelloFresh, a meal delivery service that’s now available on the East Coast. (I received three complimentary meals and I wasn’t obligated to write about them here.) We really enjoyed this curry and a tofu stir fry, but the pasta dish they sent was a miss. Another minor quibble is that there were some errors and omissions on the recipe cards, resulting in a bit of confusion when we were cooking. Although I can’t see myself using a service like this, I like the concept of having all the ingredients of your weekly meals delivered to your door along with easy-to-follow recipes and I can see how it would be helpful for busy professionals who enjoy cooking, but don’t have the time to plan meals and do grocery shopping themselves.

Roasted Acorn Squash Pasta with kale & Almonds Roasted Acorn Squash Pasta with Kale & Almonds from Everyday Food // This is another photo of leftovers, hence the slightly bloated pasta. Have I mentioned how bummed I am that Everyday Food isn’t going to be published monthly anymore? I really looked forward to getting my issues in the mail. I will miss you, Everyday Food! That said, we weren’t crazy about this recipe, but I can’t quite put my finger on why because each component is delicious on its own.

      I am feeling worse, but it doesn’t matter because we’re not going home for Christmas anymore–our cat Miso had a urinary obstruction yesterday. Argh! I owe you an email, so more about that later. :( But yes, I hope you have a Merry Christmas too and I can’t wait to think up some new projects together for next year!

      I know, I totally have a knack for getting sick at the worst times. On the plus side, I am feeling absolutely no temptation to eat cookies or sweets right now…

    Those are some tasty treats! Those pesto baked potatoes are a really great idea… in fact, I have some leftover pesto from some bruschetta that we made a few days ago, and this is a great use for the rest of it. Thanks!!
