Ok so really this post is about my eats from the past couple of weeks! I have been slacking on my weekly posts (soorrryyy). But I just had to share all the goodies that have been consumed both at home and out and about in Boston.
I am still on my shake/smoothie kick. This one had pineapple Chobani Greek Yogurt, skim milk, ice, and cinnamon and sugar seasoned sprouted lentils.
Another creation I made was this masterpiece. I took strawberries, frozen banana, ice, and then Simply Lemonade with Blueberry, with a dash of water too.
I made a few new recipes as well. Honey-Lemon Dressing from Food & Wine was one of them! The bf thought it was a bit TOO sweet for his taste but I liked how fresh and light it tasted.
He made his way into the kitchen to make us some fun desserts. He took puff pastry and made a cinnamon, sugar, and cooked apple mixture to put inside squares of it and baked it up for us with a dash of cinnamon on top. We both agreed they could have been filled with more of the apples but that it was really tasty. It was even good the next day!
With the leftover puff pastry in the freezer, the following week he also made good old fashioned Napoleon’s.
Also coming out of my kitchen were these dinners. Pork tenderloin one night with veggies and salad and also my favorite pasta dish he makes, Pasta Pomodoro.
Sometimes I get a big time craving for boxed macaroni and cheese so that happened one day as well.
And I had my usual turkey or chicken sandwiches but this time I tried the Fiber One wraps, which were really good to have on hand!
I also made a batch of baked/roasted chickpeas! Soooo good! If you have not made these, I strongly recommend it.
Now onto take-out! The bf and I got Boston Market chicken to bring home for dinner with all the Thanksgiving type sides!
We also got one of our local favorites, Dino’s, in the North End section of Boston, where I ordered the veggie and chicken packed chicken cacciatore over ziti. Another day I went there AGAIN and got the Greek salad with grilled chicken. OMG. So good!
On my way home from the gym one day, I got the steak tips and brussel sprouts to heat up at home, from Monica’s market.
With good weather creeping in, a lunch outside on the patio at Joe’s had to happen. I got the honey chicken salad with the dressing on the side. Always delic!
A pizza from Regina’s was a must when cooking was not in the cards one evening with the bf.
I met up with an old co-worker of mine to chat and have some dinner at Hillstone last weekend. We got grilled artichokes to start and then shared the tempura battered/fried chicken fingers platter, featuring cole slaw and fries.
And on the cocktail front, I tried the skinny margarita at where else? Margaritas! Really tasty!
Have a great weekend whether you are a Kentucky Derby fan or celebrating Cinco de Mayo or just enjoying the spring weather!
