Tuesday night my husband was out so I did what I usually do: make salmon. Since he doesn’t eat fish, I usually make it when he’s not around. To go with it, I whipped up an easy Quinoa Greek Salad which was delicious!
Quinoa Greek Salad (Serves 6)
Recipe adapted from Food.com
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup quinoa
1/2 cup red pepper, diced
1/2 cup green pepper, diced
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1/4 cup green onion, diced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/4 cup red onion, diced
3 ounces feta cheese (reduced fat fine)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. oregano
Pepper, to taste
1. In a saucepan, bring stock to a boil. Stir in quinoa. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook 15 minutes, until liquid is absorbed.
2. Transfer to a large bowl and cool.
3. Stir veggies and cheese into cooled quinoa.
4. Whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour over quinoa mixture and toss.
I took the kids to school, went to a school event, then went to Orange Theory. I ran some errands and stopped for lunch at Urban Plates.
Standard Urban Plates order.
We went to my son’s basketball game that evening, followed by dinner at Tio Leo’s. I ordered the Camarones Rancheros with a salad instead of rice and beans.
Eh. This wasn’t that great. I’ll stick to my usuals there from now on.
After I dropped the kids off at school, I went to the gym, followed by my tennis lesson.
I had some errands to run and also stopped at Green Spot Salad Company for my Ginger Sesame Ahi Bowl.
Last night I made the best pasta ever. I cannot wait to share the recipe with you.
One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken. I’m telling you, you have to make this! Stay tuned!
The usual morning of school drop off and an hour at the gym. I came home to try to attack the mess that is my desk. Lunch was leftover Quinoa Greek Salad, Trader Joe’s hummus & kale dips and carrots.
Happy Friday everyone!
Any fun weekend plans?
