WIAW: Veggy-topia

Good morning. How’s it going? I had a pretty late night because I went to the Under The Sun concert in Boston! It’s a 90’s show featuring some of my favorite 90’s bands including Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth,  Blues Traveler, and of course, Uncle Kracker. It was such a fun night, but I am just now getting out of bed after my late night. Ok, onto the eats!

Peas and Crayons

Can I just say that I am loving this farm share. I have been eating a wide variety of vegetables every day and I am constantly challenging myself to incorporate them into every meal. This has lead to lots of new recipes!

Breakfast is easy as long as I have eggs. I’m still not great at making omelets, (they come out more like a scramble) but this one is stuffed with deli turkey, peppers, onions and American cheese.

IMG_1290 It’s amazing how much better fresh vegetables taste. They have me hooked on salads, which is not something I usually enjoy eating.

Snacking on kale chips

IMG_1300Dinner on Monday was super simple. I posted this recipe yesterday on my list of simple summer suppers All I did was cut up come veggies and cover them in spices surrounding chicken thighs. This got baked in the oven for about 1/2 hr or until the chicken was cooked and veggies were tender.

IMG_1301It came out looking and smelling wonderful! The juices from the chicken help cook the vegetables and keep them moist.

After we ate, there was a lot of leftovers so what I did was chop up the chicken, add some more chicken broth and some frozen veggies and made a soup which I have been having for lunch.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, soups are a great way to get rid of leftovers and not feel like your eating last night’s dinner. Nolan is not a leftover fan, so I try to make something new out of something old so it doesn’t get thrown away. R-E-C-Y-C-L-E, recycle!

What have you been snacking on lately?

Are you a fan of leftovers?
