My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Cheat Day

Hi Guys. The comfort food last week seemed to do the trick – we’re feeling almost normal again 🙂

I haven’t even been near the scale last week as ‘comfort food’ also included a couple of bags of chips while watching a movie or two, not to mention the chocolate. I think we all need a cheat day every so often.

Buuuut, today I’m back on track. Last night I made all my jar salads: a couple of those very delicious Cobb Salad in a Jar with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, a couple of Caesar Salads from my Looney Spoons Collection cook book, and a lovely Greek Salad from the same book – Yummm.

Chicken, tomatoes, bacon, avocado, eggs, blue cheese and lettuce all conveniently layered in a jar with a light homemade ranch – portable and perfect to make ahead to take to work, school, the beach, park or anywhere you want a delicious meal on the go!

This week’s menu is all about using up ingredients I already have in the fridge, freezer and pantry. I seem to have accumulated a lot of food over the last couple of weeks. Not only can I save some money at the grocery store, but I hate wasting food and would feel horrible if I had to toss it.

Monday: Stuffed Sweet Potatoes – Italian Style

Tuesday: Chicken, Shiitake & Wild Rice Soup

Wednesday: Grilled Shrimp & Vegetable Bowl

Thursday: Breakfast Pizza – I love breakfast for supper and this “pizza” looks delish!

Friday: Zucchini Rollatini – this has become a favourite in our household

Saturday: Date Night!

Sunday: Simple Mediterranean Olive Oil Pasta – love this dish.
