Hey guys! Happy hump day! I was home from work sick today 😦 and am just starting to feel better. I started to feel icky last night after supper and when I got to work this morning it just seemed to be getting worse. I didn’t feel like I had the flu, I just felt off. Not me. So I came home, took some Super Orange Emergen-C and had a loooong sleep. I woke up, had a little bite of lunch and fell back asleep. Obviously my body needed it. I’ve been drinking lots of tea today and Andrew made supper with lots of ginger to help with my nausea. Feeling A LOT better now 🙂

I promised a different breakfast today and I didn’t lie…

Gobbled this mess up. Was 2 egg whites and 1 egg. Goat cheese and raspberry jam. So great. I had packed this for lunch

Lunch was supposed to be a sundried tomato with more goat cheese, roasted veggies and radish sprouts, oranges, leftover salad, granola bar, protein muffin with cashew butter and cottage cheese. Lunch ended up being just the wrap, honey lemon tea and another nap.

We had an early dinner tonight and it was excellent. Brown rice and veggie stirfry.

Recipes pour vous

Orzo Salad with Chickpeas and Dill
(Pretty sure this recipe came from Cooking Light)

1 cup uncooked orzo
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup feta
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 1/2 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
2 cloves of garlic minced
lemon juice to taste ( approx 1 lemon)

Cook pasta, rinse with cold water and set aside.
Combine pasta with onions, cheese, dill and chickpeas in a large bowl.
Combine lemon juice and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Drizzle over pasta and toss to coat.

Feta, Spinach and Pine Nut Stuffed Focaccia

1 recipe focaccia bread
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 a red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
Lots of spinach (6 cups?)
1/2 cup feta
handful of pine nuts
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper
2 tbps almond milk
1 tbsp parm cheese

Preheat over to 375F.

Heat oil in a pan and add onion and garlic and cook until onion is clear, about 3 min. Add as much spinach as you can into the pan and stir until it wilts. Add the rest of the spinach and repeat. Take off burner and stir in feta, pine nuts, salt and pepper and lemon juice.
Place focaccia dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread it into a rectangle ish shape and then put spinach mixture lengthwise over half of dough, leaving a little border. Fold other half of dough over filling; press edges around to close the bread up.
Mix milk and parm and brush over focaccia. Cut a few diagonal slits across.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until brown on top.

Well there you have it. Starting to feel crappy pants again so I’m going to join my puppy and hit the hay. Take care out there! 🙂

Hi guys! Sorry no post yesterday but after I got home I just wanted to hang out with my boyss and relaaax!! I had such a good weekend at home, though! Just wish it wouldn’t have been so short!

Just some of the many reasons I love being at home

awesome oats with raisons, cashew butter, honey and chia seeds

fresh pineapple

homemade veggie lasagna

My mom totally spoiled Beasley while we were there. She took him for walk/runs in the a.m. while I was zzzzzing and even picked up his poop! (She’s NEVER been a dog person). I loved it. She took him out in the afternoon if she was going outside and we took him for a really long walk one afternoon. My kitties were even getting used to him. One of them anyway 😉

When I got home I realized I was waaay to tired to cook anything so Andrew and I decided to order out. Shocking, I know. We hardly ever eat out! Maybe if we lived in a city where there were a lot more vegetarian/vegan options we would but for now cooking home is totally fine with me 🙂 We ordered from Las Palapas and my meal was suuper duuper.

I had the black bean and roast vegetable burrito with bean salad. GAH soo great. It had a kind of creme fraiche sauce on top of the burrito and it was deelicious!

I miiight have overloaded on popcorn after this. POPCORN MONSTER.

Today started off with an 8am orthodontist appointment. Not sure why I do that to myself. My last day off and I have to be up early! I decided that since I was up so early, I would get a lot done today. Ha ha ha. Not the case at all. I did eat breakfast when I got home

chia oatmeal with cinnamon and molasses. and a frozen raspberry or two. obvi the only thing I eat for breakfast is oats. maybe I could switch it up once in awhile yeah? haha.

I promptly fell asleep as soon as I put my spoon down. And woke up at nooon! Ahhhh, nothing better than a good sleep but JEEZ! Noon?! Whateves. I got up and took Bizzle for a walk and then came home and did some laundry, had a salad (with the leftover yam falafels)

and started making focaccia for tonight’s supper of stuffed focaccia with spinach and feta. I used this focaccia mix

I have never made focaccia bread before and this was really easy. After mixing it all up, I put it in a greased bowl for 45 minutes to rise. I cut it in two pieces – one for the stuffed bread and just a regular one. Spread it out into a rectangle ish shape, spread my innerds on, folded it up and baked it!

le regular focaccia

Here are the finished products:

YUM YUM YUM!! Andrew roasted some veggies for supper, too. Mushrooms, peppers, onions, asparagus, zucchini.

My plate before:

aaaaand after:

Oooh my belly is so sassified. No dessert tonight, just supper prep for tomorrow!! Little preview….

A recipe for both the stuffed focaccia and the orzo salad will be kickin around here tomorrow if you’re interested. Hope everyone had a great Monday!! Niiight!
