Friday Food Round-Up!

If a dinner gets eaten at home and I don’t take a photo, did it even happen?

On Sunday evening, I was so wiped after our day of adventures (another visit to Hmong Village, a trip to the MIA to see the DaVinci Codex exhibit, a stop at Surly’s Beer Hall, and a visit to Babies R Us) that I just had to sit down and put my feet up.  What is it about pregnancy where there is this point in the day where you just cannot remain physically upright for even one second longer?  So I assembled half of dinner and left Marcus to boil corn and cook up chicken sausages.  I then proceeded to eat all of the best parts of dinner AKA corn, green beans, and Dijon potatoes but NOT the chicken sausage and went back to my restive state.  I’m sure you can already imagine what it looked like.

Anyway, this was one of those weeks where we spent the rest of the week apart, so I made some salads.

Wednesday – Corn and Avocado Salad


I was headed off to monthly wine night with my girlfriends and I had all of the stuff I needed for Corn and Avocado Salad.  Or so I thought until I went to the freezer to grab the corn and there was no corn in sight.  So, off to Cub for another bag of frozen corn!  This may also have been fueled by the cherry tomatoes and avocados that were languishing with no real purpose for the week.  Still a third motive may be the fact that I deeply desired jarred queso dip and I felt like offering up a healthy option would disguise my true wish to eat queso dip for dinner.

Miscellaneous – Chickpea Salad


It’s the easiest dish to throw together for lunch leftovers.  End of story.
