What I Ate Wednesday


Here's a What I Ate Wednesday look at food highlights from the past week. Starting with the best highlight of all - sushi! All-you-can-eat sushi actually. My husband had a day off last week during exams and our first priority was a vegetarian sushi lunch.



The place wasn't super busy and our order began arriving in no time, beginning with my favourite part - the maki rolls. I absolutely love the veggie green dragon rolls, filled with yam tempura. Yum. I want more now actually.


As the table filled up, you can see my husband was in his happy place. As was I. Nothing like stuffing yourself full of Japanese food!


I also got takeout from the health food store one day. I kind of threw it all into a container, so it came out looking messy like this. There was some kind of curried chickpea dish, a lentil dish, rice and roasted potatoes.


We also did some cooking this week. I continued to try out recipes from Isa Does It, like this Lentil-A-Roni. It was super easy to make and very tasty. I figured it would be perfect for the kids, but my son wouldn't even try it and my daughter only ate a bit. The husband and I gulped it down though.


If the Lentil-A-Roni was good, the Tofu-Mushroom Stroganoff was great. Another fairly-simple-to-make recipe that had us fighting over seconds.



My little girl was getting bored while I was cooking, so I asked her if she wanted to take the first photos of the tofu stroganoff. She was pretty excited. I'm sharing one of her photos (above), because I think it's cute how she sees things so differently from her level.


On Monday rain was once again threatening, so I persuaded my husband to barbecue while he still could. We had veggie burgers, potatoes, veggie dogs and portobello mushrooms.


I had leftover potatoes and a portobello mushroom for lunch on Tuesday, along with hummus and tortilla chips. We picked up a case of Sanpellegrino aranciata and limonata recently. I usually pass it up because it's hard to resist once it's in the house. But hey, it contains no artificial colours or flavours and it's made in Italy! So it's a great once-in-a-while-treat.


It's strawberry season here in Ontario, so I decided to create a new strawberry muffin recipe. Yesterday, I was able to pair my usual peanut butter and jam on toast breakfast with a yummy vegan strawberry banana muffin.


Here's the official photo. I will be sharing the recipe here on the blog on Friday.

What have you been eating and enjoying lately?

  1. Every time you blog about the all you can eat sushi I sit here drooling! Wish I had something like that near me. I haven't tried those Isa Does It recipes yet, the stroganoff has been on my to-do list. Love your daughter's photo, kids taking photos is always great :D

  4. So yummy! It has been either thunder-storming or threatening to thunderstorm all June, so we haven't grilled as much as I'd like-- but seeing your grilled portobello has my tummy rumbling!

  5. Oh your eats are always so drool-worthy =) The sushi looks especially delicious. I have the Isa Does It cookbook - I'll have to try out that lentil-a-roni. Looks delish!
    That owl mug is adorable!
