What did YOU eat for dinner? Sharing is caring!

P.S. Oops! I almost forgot to give you Mama Pea’s Mmmm Sauce recipe.

P.P.S. The story from yesterday about my sister making me be a step-stool…totally true. I couldn’t make that up.

P.P.P.S. I love you.

Like, lots.

Yum! My dinner would have been vegan if I hadn’t covered it in feta! haha. I sauteed zucchini, fresh corn, tomatoes, and onion in rosemary olive oil served over pasta. Mmm mmm!

Last night’s dinner was really good! I made tostones, chicken simmered in homemade ancho chili sauce, and a tomato salad with balsamic vinaigrette and sundried tomato jack cheese.

Your photos are just…spectacular, Holly!

The clarity. The composition. The cute sayings that you wrote on them. LOVE THEM!

That looks like basically my favorite vegan meal ever ever ever!!!!

Another option for the above veg is to make vegetarian mousaka. But it requires bechamel, and who has time for all that wisking?

If it makes you feel any better, I was in a play in 5th grade where I was the alarm clock.

No joke.

My job was to stand up on a chair three times during the play, hold a clock above my head, and say “ring.”

Step Nine: You come to my house and make that for me.
Step Ten: We drink wine and hilarity ensues.

My dinner SHOULD have been vegan, but I added chicken to the recipe. Quinoa mixed with black beans, fresh roasted corn, salsa, and ground chili-lime chicken. Made a vatful, so it’ll also be my lunch and dinner today.

Wonderful photos!! What editor do you use? And, do you just use a text box for the words? I’m so clueless.

This looks amazing. I want a bite!

I love meals like this- especially for the leftovers. Also good for this? Frozen veggies. Not as fancy as roasted (and you know I love me some roasted veggies) but it eliminates needing to think about it in advance for lunch!

That’s 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Not 3 hours right? I kid!! And I stared at the bag of potatoes for a good 5 minutes thinking they were cahsews but why are they in mesh? Oops.

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather September 8, 2011 at 5:31 pm

Mmmmmm I need to make that mmmm sauce! Your photographs look amazing Holly. Like woah amazing.

Gitchie September 8, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Sauteed zucchini, onion, tomatoes and red pepper with salsa over a bed of greens and some roasted chicken breast. Nom nom nom

Hillary September 8, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Home made pizza: wheat dough, home made tomato sauce, eggplant, red bell pepper, prosciutto, and mozzarella. Oh, and cookies. Always cookies.

brandi September 9, 2011 at 9:09 am

alright, i’ve got to make the mmm sauce already!

KaraHadley September 9, 2011 at 2:40 pm

For lunch I’m eating a big pile of roasted okra with spicy mustard for dipping. I’m strangely excited about it.

Mackenzie @ Eat. Exercise. Evolve September 17, 2011 at 10:55 pm

I just had this for dinner. My husband & I loved it! Thanks!
