What I Ate This Week | Type A Favorites

I usually like to include a lot of links to recipes from other websites in these posts, but this week I mostly made my own recipes–some of our favorites, in fact! So please forgive my shameless self-promotion. It’s actually less about self-promotion and more about my ongoing photo do-over project. I’m hoping that by June, I’ll have all of my worst recipe photos replaced with fabulous new ones. Because yes, dear readers, I am that neurotic.

Here’s what I ate this week:

Chickpea Burger & Acorn Squash Chickpea Burgers with Sauteed Onions + Roasted Acorn Squash with Lemon & Nutmeg // The chickpea burgers were a recipe I saved from Shape and they weren’t very good. They were super, super dry. The acorn squash, on the other hand, was definitely a winner.

Roasted Butternut Squash Panini Roasted Butternut Squash Panini // I first made this recipe in October and I forgot how good it is. Look at all the melty cheese!

Miso-Marinated Grilled Summer Squash Miso-Marinated Grilled Summer Squash // I love zucchini and yellow squash! We had some white miso that had been sitting in the refrigerator for several months and I figured it was time to finish it off.

Pasta with Pesto & Broccoli Penne with Pesto + Roasted Broccoli // We still have a few cubes of frozen pesto leftover from last summer’s bumper crop of basil, so I used them here. This whole meal took only 15 minutes to make!

Vegetarian Irish Stew with Sweet Potatoes & Tempeh Vegetarian Irish Stew with Sweet Potatoes & Tempeh // This is one of my husband’s favorite recipes. Guinness, in case you didn’t know, makes a fabulous broth. (Of course, I suspect my husband might just like this recipe because it’s an excuse to buy a pack of Guinness.)

    I love cooking with beer, wine or anything else that contains alcohol (I also find myself consuming it as I cook)! I love the dish you used for the Irish Stew. :)

      I think I like cooking with alcohol more than I actually like drinking it. Which reminds me, I really wanted to try making beer cheese soup this winter…

      Oh! And the dish is from Anthro. I bought them a year or two ago and they still have them. They’re BIG bowls, so they’re awesome for stews, soups, pasta, etc.

      Well, I think it’s harder to avoid vegetables when you’re a vegetarian. :) I do know some vegetarians who manage to do it, but I think I’d get pretty bored!

      I hope your weekend was good too–can’t believe it’s already Sunday night! Sigh…
