Tonight I made a cashew/pineapple/quinoa stir-fry that was really tasty.

P.S. I feel ashamed now, lol: you have reminded me that i haven't eaten those 3 packs of white quinoa that i bought on discount in winter.🤦‍♀️ (I have eaten one pack though, and it was tasty).✌

This weekend plan is homemade baked falafel.

Still narrowing in on the best looking recipe. I hate when people give 5 star ratings on recipes they have not yet tried and comment, "This looks amazing, I can't wait to try it. I'm gonna save this one for later". It doesn't help tell me anything about the actual quality and flavor of the finished product...

The falafel recipe we tried was tasty. Not the best ever, but certainly good. I had forgotten to buy pita or hummus so we had the falafel as part of a rather dull salad on Saturday night since I didn't have any suitable dressing

However, on Sunday we bought pita and hummus and olives to make falafel sandwiches, which also included baby spinach, argula, tomato, cucumber, radishes and red onion. Those were a big hit. Not only did my boyfriend comment on what a healthy meal it was, he gushed about how delicious they were. I've definitely turned him into quite a falafel fan over the past year.

I think my next pursuit will be introducing him to more Indian food. I sent him this recipe the other day since it's a personal favorite of mine and he made it in his crock pot to be dinners for himself this week. He just messaged me with favorable reviews: Sweet Potato Curry With Spinach and Chickpeas Recipe - Genius Kitchen

This Thursday is Independence Day here in the states. I have Thursday through Sunday off, though my boyfriend works Friday and Saturday, I believe. Our current plan involves homemade sangria and strawberry shortcakes. Not sure what we will choose for a dinner option though. Unfortunately,our living arrangements don't allow for a grill, otherwise I'd be all for veggie burgers, corn on the cob and vegetable kabobs.

We decided to make gourmet burgers on the holiday, using a pack of Beyond Burgers I've had in my freezer. We plan to buy some nice hearty buns and top them with sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions and baby greens. We won't be able to grill them, but I trust they'll be sufficiently flavorful from the stovetop.

I am going to have rice and beans, and tostones with a garlic dip. Plantains were on sale this week.
I had frozen Goya plaintains and loved them, then I bought one and appartently it was too ripe! DId not like it like that! :sigh:
I seem to mess up rice and beans. Like I can't get the seasoning how I like it, or maybe that Zatarains is my favorite and the secret ingredient is salt? :rofl:
I have no idea what I want! I want to have dinner with you ;)
Or snacks on the porch with some raspberry ale!

Tomorrow we are planning to make burritos. I found a recipe for portabella mushroom, black bean and spinach burritos I think will be a winner.

I wish I'd bought more portabellos. I marinated them yesterday to grill, but liked them even better before they were cooked!
What would good to include marinated mushrooms, besides salad? Maybe tweek the marinade to make like Philly steak subs?

LOL, mine comes out different every time. I always put hot sauce in it, so that helps if I mess up the seasonings. I don't really have a recipe for it. I kind of add things as I go and test taste. I would love to share that raspberry ale and a nice spicy meal!
