Friday Food Round-Up!

This week, Marcus and I had a lot of things on the calendar and schedules running in completely opposite directions.  So a decent part of the week was dedicated to creating work lunches and dinners for myself.  Sometimes, that’s just the way it goes.

Miscellaneous – Warm Cauliflower and Herbed Barley Salad


Hello, old friend.  I remember that there was a period of time where I was eating this nearly weekly.  For whatever reason, I decided that this stalwart would be a great lunchtime choice this week and it absolutely was.  The veggie-carb-protein combination is satisfying, the lemon and parsley give the salad a really bright flavor.

Plus, this week I learned that you can cook barley by boiling it instead of steaming it.  Visionary.

Tuesday – Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps


Marcus was at frisbee and these lettuce wraps never, ever fail me.  I deviate from the recipe by adding a diced zucchini to the mix, just to bulk it up and increase the veggie content.  Top with a squiggle of sriracha and you are in business.

Wednesday – Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken with Corn and Avocado Salad


I decided that this week, we were going to take the grill out for it’s inaugural dinner of 2014.  Which was super cute except for the part where we’re having a weird weather regression and mid-May is feeling more like…April.  Or October.  May?  Is not being a team player.
