I’ve been trying to cook more, to take the pressure off of Matt and to have more control over what I’m eating (Matt is an awesome cook, but I’m in the middle of trying to lose a bit of newlywed weight right now and it’s hard to accurately track dinners when I’m not 100% sure what is going into them!). I think I’ve had a few good meals turn out!
Left from top: Spaghetti Limone Parmeggiano with turkey meatballs (I still pledge my love to Bittman); balsamic strawberries with arugula and goat cheese (Bittman!), blueberry oatmeal muffins (I added walnuts).
Middle: This isn’t a fancy recipe — but I discovered ricotta on scrambled eggs is amazing!
Right: Not only did I make broccoli soup, I ate it (from a sourdough bread bowl). This is notable because I used to hate broccoli. I used real cheese instead of Velveeta because ew.
You may notice a lot of the recipes are from Cooking Light; I find it easy to eat healthier using their stuff although I do try to find recipes that don’t involve a lot of weird, overly-processed ‘diet’ ingredients.
Now to figure out what to cook this week!
