I’m fairly certain I concocted the next best salad at Chop’t this week, and then re-created it at home! After careful examination of the menu, my new seasonal go-to consists of:
- Spinach / romaine
- Red onion
- Shredded carrots
- + Dressing
Unfortunately, my mid-week pumpkin bread attempt was not nearly as successful. Ultimate fail of a blogger re-creation, do not attempt! Nance helped me redeem my new can of pumpkin with her signature recipe. Yum.
I finished off the week with my first go-around at stuffed peppers. They turned out pretty well! I loosely followed Rachel Ray’s Quinoa and Vegetable Stuffed Pepper directions, only my stuffing consisted of quinoa, black beans, diced tomatoes, and various sprinkles of garlic, salt, pepper and oregano. Hearty!
On running: Jogged out a leisurely 6ish miles this week, making a few stops to soak in the scenery along the way. City trails, just can’t get enough of them.
