We ate a lot of kale this week. So much, in fact, that my two remaining kale plants have been completely depleted and removed from the garden. Am I neurotic for feeling a little bit guilty about that? Farewell, Curly Scotch Kale plants! You served us well.
Here’s what I ate this week:
Sweet Potato Pizza with Kale & Caramelized Onions // It’s been so long since we’ve had pizza, so my husband and I were both in agreement that it was time to make one. This is one of our favorites. Even though it looks a little involved, it comes together pretty easily and it’s definitely worth the effort.
Baby Bella and Kale Casserole // I changed this one up a little bit–the original recipe called for large pasta shells and I stuck with that in my first adaptation, but now I’m subbing in small pasta shells. It’s a little bit easier to eat this way and the small pasta shells come in whole wheat, which I prefer to white pasta.
Middle Eastern Food! // My husband was on a business trip for a few days this week, and on his way home from the airport, he stopped at Neomonde to pick up dinner. I usually try to limit takeout to the weekends, but I can’t say no when it comes to pita bread and hummus. And Neomonde has the best caramelized onion and lentil salad–so good!
Oatmeal with Chai-Spiced Pear Applesauce // Yes, as you can see, I’m still trying to eat healthier breakfasts. No more breakfast pudding for me! (Okay, maybe sometimes I’ll still have pudding for breakfast. Sometimes!) Oatmeal is a little more labor-intensive than muffins, but it’s still pretty doable.
Strawberry Mango Fizz Smoothie // I love making these–they’re fairly low in calories and super easy to whip up.
