I’m pretty sure I’ve used that title before, but oh well.
It’s been awhile! Last week I wasn’t traveling so I went to Grosse Pointe for a few days to see my family. And this guy too…
I came back in time for the weekend and had a great pre-birthday weekend (my bday is coming up this Tuesday but I’ll be traveling).
Friday, we grilled steaks from Whole Foods–which were pricey but so delicious. I also made a salad with lettuce, spring mix, bacon, avocado, tomato, walnuts, pistachios and dried cranberries. Random mix but it was pretty good. I used Garlic Expressions as the dressing–one of my favorite dressings.
My coworker and I had walked over to the French Market on Friday for lunch and I got a lavendar macaroon–my first one! So when I saw a box of macaroons at Whole Foods for only 6 bucks that same day, I knew I had to get them. The pink ones were the best. I can’t believe I had never had one before.
Saturday night I went out to a byob sushi place called Tanuki with a few girlfriends. It is a new-ish place and I think will be added into my regular sushi rotation–the sushi was really good and tasted fresh.
I had a lot of produce to eat before leaving, so today I roasted it all with coconut oil and salt and pepper:
The pre-cut butternut squash from Trader Joe’s is 100% worth the extra money–cutting those things is such a pain.
I also finally figured out a good way to make tempeh–I was on the fence about tempeh for awhile but I think that’s because I didn’t know how to cook it. This time, I cut the tempeh in half so that it was thinner and then cut it into pieces. I marinated it in soy sauce and then fried it over high heat for a few minutes on each side also in coconut oil. It was delicious!
If you haven’t tried to make it before, it’s really easy.
I’m off to pack, I’m headed to Sacramento this week. Talk to you soon!
