What's for dinner?

Monday: Loving Hut Spicy Cha Cha Vegan fast food in Ladera Ranch with Alyssa. Good food considering it's owned by a crazy cult. (not joking!)

: Mushroom Risotto by William Sonoma Healthful Cooking. I'd made this recipe before by myself and it came out great, although for the work I swore I'd never do it again. Unfortunately, I bought too much risotto and it tasted SO good... so we decided to make it again. It wasn't as good as last time, but still good. And fresh tomatoes for an appetizer.

Wednesday: Dinner with Jen at a new Sushi Restaurant in Huntington Beach. Was too busy gossiping to take any pictures.

Thursday: Chicken Sandwiches with Arugula and Pears from Rachel Ray and Carrot and Orange Soup from Simple Vegetarian. Gavin was really happy with this recipe. It's something I probably wouldn't make again. The soup, however, is something we've made before that I really like. It's pretty simple and very flavorful. Gavin preferred the last time we made the soup when we strained it. I preferred it this way, it was more substantial.

Friday: Throwback Egg Sandwich from the kitchen of my mom. I love egg sandwiches, in fact Gavin makes one for me almost every morning. This is the nighttime version. The difference is that I mix the eggs with milk and put mayonnaise on the bread. I'm not as good as my mom. not even close. But it was edible.

Saturday: Red Velvet Cake from the kitchen of Courtney's sister and Kelly. I did eat some other dinner, but it was just as unhealthy and not so pretty so I've left it out! :)

Sunday: Amy's Special. In other words, we didn't feel like grocery shopping after last nights fun so I literally took all the vegetables in our house and cooked them! The sauce was garlic, onions, red pepper, jalapenos, spices and home grown tomatoes. I thought it was very good, but it was a bit spicy for Gavin.


  1. Love reading about all the cooking you're doing!! I can honestly say you've changed SO MUCH since the first time I came to visit (in 2008)! :) Kudos!!
