We had a lot of tasty eats this week! Mr. Cyclist and I discovered that if you roast little mini peppers they become even more sweet and delicious. Plus, Psycho Holiday Baker made the best chocolate chip cookies later in the week when we went for dinner.
We ate them with a turkey burger (I left off the bun because I was saving room for chips hah):
All you need to do is get the big bag of mini peppers from Costco or your local grocery store (if you can find them there) and then roast them on a baking sheet in the oven under the broiler until they brown. We add some olive oil and a few spices.
Next, we added those same peppers to what I am calling the best salad ever (for the moment anyway).
Lemon shrimp, avocado, Romano cheese, roasted mini peppers, spinach, onion, sun-dried tomatoes and a few olives. So tasty!
For another dinner, we took more avocados and put them on top of a vegetable omelet.
Served with a side of spiced black beans for a complete meal.
Last night, Psycho Holiday Baker made a batch of some of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. Even my Dad couldn’t stop eating them! And he doesn’t usually care much about cookies. The recipe was from Savory Sweet Life.
For today, we went to one of those make-your-own stir-fry restaurants.
At first, I was horrible at putting together ingredients, but now I am a pro. Haha. Anyway, first I made a vegetable and tilapia curry mix:
And then, a second small vegetable mix with vodka sauce! It was amazing:
Look at all of those veggies!
I don’t think he really liked getting his picture taken.
Now, it’s time to make some gumbo and relax. I already did my exercise by wandering around on a trail in the woods with Mr. Cyclist! Hah. Typical for a day off.
