WIAW: This week’s eats and the leftover

Hello all.  This week I’m linking up with Peas and Crayongs for WIAW to share what we are eating this week.

This week it was all about the leftovers.  I hate wasting food.  The prices at the grocery store seems to be rising so wasting the moolah on food just makes me upset.  Luckily, we had plenty of stuff leftover from last week that I was able to make new this week.  In my opinion, I think it turned out better this week.

There is video:

Here is a closer look at what we prepped this week:

Breakfast is always the same because I love my oats! I can’t live without them and making the eggs is so easy.

For lunch I stuffed the bell peppers with the leftover black beans from last week. I added corn and jalapenos to add volume and put the mixture in the bell peppers. It worked out really well. I also had lentils left over so I added green peas to that and put that mixture in the remaining peppers. I topped it with a tomato sauce and baked them in the oven for 40 minutes on 425. I think the peppers turned our perfect.

And I also made this carrot thing, but I forgot to take a picture of it before I started prepping it for the meals. At that point, it didn’t look pretty so this is what you get.

And I’ve been eating this salad with a meatless burger in it all week. It’s just easier for me to prep than anything else. I am going to do a blog series on snacks though because it something I am lacking in my life. I need more knowledge and I like to share what I learn with all of you.

If you want to know what we’re having for dinner, head on over to Willie’s blog because he already got his post up! It’s been fun experimenting with the vegetarian diet.

The king of grocery shopping

The king of grocery shopping

I spent the weekend with my best friend in Mississippi while Willie stayed behind to handle the dogs!  He also had to handle the grocery shopping so that we could successfully handle the Sunday meal prepping. For the record, my husband is AMAZING! I got to enjoy views like this and he got to take the dog to get his shots. Remember ho I told y’all Willie came in under budget for the grocery shopping?  He did it again.  Maybe I should start sending him to the store instead of going myself.  He did a really good job.  Our fridge… View Post

I’ve been cooking

There’s been so much focus on Willie cooking, I think people may have forgotten that I like to cook too.  I must admit he’s been picking up a lot of the food slack in the house because marathon training has kept me busy.  He keeps me well fueled. I’ve had a little bit of free time to make some food lately and I wanted to share with you what I’ve been making. The Runner’s World Cookbook hit stores in October and I couldn’t wait to get a copy.  I was trying to find one in stores but no luck so… View Post
