Pizza & Injera & Noodles!

This week has been filled with some of my favorite foods! On Monday night, Paul and I went to a guided meditation class at Crosstown Arts (where I work), and then we went home and had PIZZA NIGHT! First of all, I should say that it’s a miracle that I convinced Paul to go to a meditation class, but he did. And though he struggled to sit still and be quiet for an hour, he did it. And I’m very proud! So a pizza celebration was called for.
I cooked a Daiya Meatless Meat Lovers Pizza (my new fave frozen pizza), and Paul grabbed a non-vegan pie from Domino’s. We watched You on Netflix and ate pizza (plus salad for me).
On Tuesday night, we had our monthly Vegan Drinks meet-up at Blue Nile, and I got the Veggie Platter with bonus tofu tibs (the tibs are a $3 up-charge but so worth it). Ethiopian is my FAVORITE cuisine. I’m practicing stopping eating when I’m full (it’s hard), but I managed to save half of this for leftovers tonight. And tonight, I was so glad I did! This had red lentils, yellow split peas, fried tofu tibs, sauteed broccoli & green beans, collards & cabbage, stewed potatoes & carrots, green salad, beet salad, and all-you-can eat injera bread.
This weekend, Paul ordered the Tofu Veggie Noodle Soup from Crazy Noodle and ended up only eating a small portion. So he left me the leftovers. I boosted them up with extra tofu and mushrooms and had that for dinner last night after our Crosstown Run Crew meet-up. Enjoyed while watching TV (and watching Maynard enjoy a treat).
And finally, cause I know you’re probably sick of seeing oats (but oh well), here’s another Berry Oatmeal Bowl with cherries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries (cooked into the oats), topped with banana and chia-flax peanut butter.
