I am taking another "What I Ate Wednesday" look at some food highlights from the past week. We had a few meals at home, like this dinner of barbecued veggies paired with noodles in peanut sauce, above.
One day, my husband and I spent several hours organizing the basement, and we came up to this, above, for lunch. My seven-year-old daughter had prepared our lunches. This was my plate of baby carrots, cucumber, a slice of peach and a Tofurky vegan turkey slice.
Here is my semi-regular breakfast of quick cooking steel cut oats, topped in this case with some dry cranberries, peaches and strawberries, as well as hemp hearts, agave syrup and soy milk.
When we weren't eating at home, we enjoyed some celebratory meals. Saturday was my father-in-law's 75th birthday party, and we gathered at my sister-in-law's house. The meal started with antipasto, above.
I really enjoyed these zucchini pickles, made by my husband's aunt.
My favourite part, of course, was my mother-in-law's dairy-free tofu lasagna.
Breaded zucchini flowers.
My mother-in-law's special rice balls.
And lots of desserts. Like Italian cookies.
Banana bread and my vegan chocolate chip bars.
Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We decided to go for all-you-can-eat sushi. My daughter chose to go to her cousins' house instead.
My son quickly took hold of the menu. He is now very comfortable making his choices at our favourite sushi restaurant.
We started with miso soup and edamame.
We had LOTS of rolls, including crispy rolls and veg green dragon rolls.
There were vegetarian spring rolls too.
And sweet potato rolls.
We always reach a point where we have ordered too much. For my son, this avocado and cucumber hand roll was just one item too many.
For me it was this second order of fried rice. Nobody wanted to share it with me, so I had to eat it myself.
We left feeling more than a little bit stuffed. There was no need for dinner last evening.
Linking up with Jenn. By the way, Jenn's focusing on food and fitness this month. Unfortunately, I haven't been going to the gym at all lately. I hope lifting a fork to your mouth burns some calories!
