Farmer's Market Haul, Meal Photos, Baby Bump

Plans change. We're flexible! We made most of the meals we planned this week, but we ended up doing a leftover night last night because leftovers were taking over the fridge and I did not feel like freezing them. We eat leftovers for lunches and I thought that would take care of it, but I guess we cooked many servings. Also, we are getting Indian food with a friend tonight. Probably making potato avocado tacos tomorrow and save stir fry and falafel for some other time. Here are some pictures of what we've eaten but I think I've posted pictures of these type of meals before. 

Indian Chickpeas with Spinach and Cilantro. I usually serve with brown rice but I was forgot and was too hungry. We ate this with frozen samosas.

Summer Veggie Risotto. I use whatever seasonal veggies are available. This has squash, green beans, and carrots. In winter, we make butternut squash risotto. We use nutritional yeast instead of parmesan cheese.

Pesto Pasta with Peas. Again, we use nutritional yeast instead of parmesan cheese. Homemade pesto with basil from the garden. We also started using walnuts instead of pine nuts because they are so much cheaper.

We visited the farmer's market today in the heat and got lots of goodies. We got half a giant canteloupe for 50 cents, paddy pan squash, giant garlic, lettuce, green beans, tomatoes, and eggplants. The only other fruit was peaches which we would have gotten but the line was ridiculous. Hoping for some berries soon! 

 I took some photos of Ian's lunch- a wrap made with lettuce, tomatoes, salad dressing, muenster cheese, and chips!

And he took a picture of my bump before we went out this morning- there is my new desk we assembled and you can see my smoothie in the background!  17 weeks and 1 day.


  1. Awww! You are so cute with your baby bump! The pesto and peas also looks delish! :)

  2. Thanks for much! It was tasty, we always have pesto in the freezer since basil grows like a weed! I'm excited for the bump- felt first kick last night (I think!)

  3. YUM! All of those recipes look SO GOOD! I hate cooking, but I just may have to make an exception to try those. :) Love the bump pics!

  4. Thanks! I know it is hard to find time to cook as a teacher- I did my student teaching this past year. Hopefully yummy-looking recipes are good motivation! :o)

  5. The pesto pasta looks delicious, I love pesto!

    Following back! :)
