Happy hump day y’all! I’m actually really happy it’s Wednesday because I have had so many yummy foods to post!
This past weekend, I fell in love with the turkey, pear and brie combo.
Friday’s dinner was turkey breast topped with some brie and then a pear slice and then a sprinkle of thyme. On the side, an arugala salad with a delicious dressing of fresh squeezed mandarin orange juice, sesame oil, and rice vinegar.
Lunch the next day was half of a turkey, pear, and brie sandwich on fresh multigrain bread. I also drizzled a little bit of honey mustard on there. On the side, a spinach salad with the same dressing from the night before.
I also had a lot of cantaloupe this weekend. We had two in the house that needed using up, and I’m pretty sure I ate both of them myself… Some cantaloupe with cottage cheese made a great post-workout or nighttime snack.
Sunday there was a lack of groceries in the house. We had no spinach or lettuce, but we did have leftover turkey and ham, a bunch of veggies, and hard-boiled eggs. We made an “everything but…” salad with a dressing made with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and dijon mustard.
Another meal was baked salmon with a little blackening seasoning topped with salsa, and a side of spinach sprinkled with a lemon-pepper seasoning.
Turkey spaghetti sauce over shirataki noodles. I need to stop trying these noodles – they taste (and smell) awful, yet I keep buying them – I guess in hope that I’ll start to like them haha.
Yesterday’s lunch: Kiwi-Strawberry Spinach salad topped with a strawberry balsamic dressing. The dressing was very easy to make, blend sliced strawberries, balsamic vinegar and a little bit of olive oil.
I’m feeling creative today, so expect a new recipe soon! Enjoy your day!
