Another weekend gone. I swear, weekend days more a double the speed of weekdays! I went grocery shopping yesterday and got a TON of stuff. I was out of a lot of things that I don't buy very often, like olive oil and flour, so it seemed like a really big trip. But sometimes you just gotta do that. I didn't take a picture of the bags and such, but look at how healthy this fruit bowl looks.
I'm trying to eat more fruit and vegetables. I lucked out at church yesterday and the couple who did coffee hour sent me home with the leftover vegetable platter. I am very excited; I rarely eat broccoli or cauliflower raw, so I'm kind of excited to try it out at lunch today.
The two "new" things I'm making this week are a Black Bean Polenta Burrito Bowl from Edible Perspective. I just found this blog and her pictures are BEAUTIFUL. Just look at that, it makes me want to dive in.
This looks like a much healthier take on my beloved Chipotle. Also, I can control the amount of "stuff" in it, which means more veggies if I want. Or not.
The other recipe is for Broccoli Parmesan Fritters from Smitten Kitchen. This was actually one of the first food blogs I ever read, she has a ton of really good recipes in varying degrees of complexity.
I've never had broccoli fritters, but I've made zucchini fritters before. I imagine it's much the same. I LOVED the zucchini ones, so I have high hopes for these.
