It’s Tuesday night, I’m tired and i don’t really have much to write about so this post isn’t going to be the most interesting. However, I do have a backlog of food photos on my computer that I never posted. A couple of weeks ago, I made these Hummus Chickpea burgers with some roasted potatoes. I had mine on a salad. It was easy to make and delicious, bun or no bun.
On Sunday, I made Spaghetti Squash Pie. I vegetarianized it by using Boca crumbles instead of ground turkey. Another winner!
And only four points for a quarter of the pie!
Tonight was one of those throw together meals, courtesy of Jason. We had some bok choy that we needed to make and he made that with am Asian-style frozen Trader Joe’s stir fry mix.
Make anything good lately?

Sometimes I end up with kind of a backlog of good looking food photos that I’ve never really shared. So I thought I would. Mostly because I don’t really have much else to say. So, here we go!
Rainbow Salad from Loving Hut. Though the name makes it sound like a completely different kind of place, it’s actually vegan restaurant near my office. It’s a chain, so there might be one near you. I ate this while dining with Mrs. Lawfully Wedded Wife, though I have no pictures to prove that. I actually went there again today with my boss. I need an intervention.
Strawberry, Basil and Balsamic yogurt from Atlanta Fresh. This is one of their new flavors (the other is Bananas Foster) and it was really interesting. It tasted pretty strongly of basil, but it totally worked. These yogurts are available in Whole Foods in Georgia (and other states, but not sure which). I got this from their company store, which I can walk to from my office. Lucky for me. Not so much for my wallet.
Bok Choy & Shrimp Stir-Fry. This is something that Jason put together to use up a bunch of bok choy that I randomly bought. I’m not quite sure what was in here, but it included some other veggies, thai chilis (which I did not eat even though I am normally pretty brave about spice), soy sauce, chili oil, fish sauce and some other stuff. Oh and bok choy and shrimp, obviously. I just stuck that first picture in there because I thought the steam was cool.
Garlicky Cauliflower, Kale and Avocado Puree with Caramelized Mushrooms. I was really excited to try this since it pretty much incorporated all my favorite foods. Kale, mushrooms and avocado, sign me up! The recipe didn’t say how many servings it made, so I went with two and Jason and I split this. At first, I was worried that it wasn’t a lot of food, but it ended up being really filling and really delicious. Even Mr. Cauliflower hater himself liked it.
And that’s really all I’ve got. Told you I didn’t have much to say.

Despite still having a slight head cold, I’m happy to report that I’m not sick anymore and I’ve had the appetite to prove it. I have to admit, the no appetite thing really did do wonders for my weight loss. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.
Thought I felt crappy on Saturday night, I actually woke up in the mood for something other than cereal on Sunday morning and made pancakes.
Janetha’s Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes have become my go-to pancake recipe. I always double it for the two of us and substitute applesauce instead of yogurt. I guess I can’t call them yogurt pancakes in that case, can I?
And those veggies? The ones that I didn’t use, well some of them were still fine, so I basically threw a bunch into some boxed veggie broth and called it soup. It was actually pretty good, especially after I added Frank’s and later some vegetarian sausage that I forgot I had.
Though there was a frozen pizza in the freezer calling my name, I decided to make a cauliflower pizza crust instead. This is the first recipe that I’ve seen for a cauliflower crust that didn’t contain a cup or more of cheese, so I really wanted to try it.
I saved some points by not using the olive oil at all. I thought this was really good. It didn’t stand up as well as normal pizza crust, and I definitely needed to eat it with a fork, but it was really delicious.
Also, can we talk about something here? This is my work email, which is why Gmail looks strange, but I see something even stranger. And I swear I was not googling that, though now everyone in my office thinks I was.
