Catch Up On Eats

Hello and good morning to all! I’m sitting here waiting patientily for Noodle to get here!! Only a few more hours.

Well as I promised here is a little catch up on some eats I’ve had the past few days. Also I think I am going to do a product review vlog later this morning so I can talk more about the new products I’ve been trying!

For lunch on Monday I whipped up a meatless meatball sub with Newman’s sauce on a Trader Joe’s 100% whole wheat tortilla. I also had a side of roasted plantain chips.

Snacks lately have also consisted a lot of my new sunflower seed butter! I have been meaning to try this stuff forever, but I have only ever seen it around for like $6-$10. Then I went to Trader Joe’s and got some for $3! It’s quite good.

Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter

Dinner on Monday was bought by me, made by Joey πŸ™‚ I found these rav on sale for $3 at Whole Foods in STL a few weeks back and had to try them out. They are perfect because it is exactly 2 servings in a package. Great for those who are cooking for one or two!

Rising Moon Ravs

Butternut squash ravs with some parm & parsley with a roasted eggplant

The eggplant was simply cut in 2 and Joey put a little olive oil on it with salt and pepper. Popped it in the oven at 400 for about 35-40 min and it turned out AWESOME.

Lunch yesterday a new veggie burger.

MorningStar Tomato & Basil Pizza Veggie Burger

I got these on sale at Target. Anyone see a trend? I hate paying full price for anything. ha. I also thought I would try out a new bread product.

Nature's Own Whole Wheat Sammy Rounds

Popped the burger on a sammy round with some goat cheese and broccoli slaw.

To make the goat cheese spreadable I popped it in the microwave for 10 seconds. Very yum!

And finally, dinner last night. I picked up these at a co-op in ATL and wanted a fun way to use them.

Vegetarian Black Bean Refried Beans

I decided to go a pseudo Mexican route. First I took 2 tortillas and spread some goat cheese as a creamy base.

Then I spread on a small layer of refried black beans and 1/4 sweet potato on each tortilla. Of course, I baked the sweet potato first (60 min on 400 degrees).

To eat I just rolled these suckers up and ate with my hands! They were SOOOO good! Joey had a bite too and was surprised how good the combination worked together. I also steamed some broccoli as a side πŸ™‚ And I had a glass of vino!

Had to pick up some local vino when I was in Atlanta

Well that’s it from me this morning! I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday and I will be back later with a Way Back When Wednesday!!! And a product review vlog. Thanks everyone for the vlog feedback.
