If you follow me on Snapchat (@designdarling if you’re so inclined), you know we’ve been cooking up a storm lately! Okay, not really anything earth-shattering, but eating in 3-4 nights a week is a big improvement for us. So far we’ve made asparagus hollandaise, shrimp scampi, barbecue pizza, oven-baked salmon, and lots of pasta with roasted veggies. I’m not the best at it (I have a pretty hard time knowing when to start each dish so that they’ll all finish at the same time!) but I feel myself getting a little more confident every time I serve something that isn’t completely inedible. It’s a little tricky given that I’m a vegetarian (pescatarian if you want to get technical) and Will is most definitely not but we’re making it work and having a great time doing it!
Here are ten vegetarian-friendly recipes I’ve bookmarked to try in the coming weeks. In a weird turn of events, we were out of town every weekend except one in July and will be home nearly every weekend in August (just long enough to really embrace this Texas heat, you know?!). Grocery shopping is way more pleasant when you know you’re going to be home to actually prepare what you buy — nothing makes me feel guiltier than tossing things out because they’ve gone bad! So here goes:
Kale and Brussels sprouts salad (sans bacon for me!)
P.S. For nights when you don’t feel like cooking but still want to eat in, make sure your freezer is stocked with these. So good!
