April: Can we do "make-it-yourself" for dinner?

So my cooking goals really slacked this past month.  This question was posed quite love, can we do make-it-yourself tonight?  (code on Brad's part for: Can I eat something with cheese/eggs/butter for dinner?)  While we did still eat together, we did a lot of separate meals or saving aside a portion to be treat-free.

Here is what we did eat the same!

Curried rotisserie chicken with jasmine rice and carrots
Taco Salad
Falafel and Arabic Bread - A HUGE HIT!
Hamburger gravy over jasmine rice and corn
Vegetarian curry with rice (I winged it, but this recipe looks especially delish)
Spaghetti and meatballs
Rotisserie chicken with cilantro-lime rice
Veggie Taco Dip and Chips
BLTs and fruit
Roasted asparagus, carrots and red potatoes

I probably a million of these milk shakes...1/3 can coconut milk, liberal pour of cocoa powder, 1 frozen banana, and a splash of vanilla...add water for a milkshake rather than soft serve consistency.  YUM!  I might go make one right now...or at least put a banana in the freezer for later. ;)


  1. Confession, ever since you shared this link on Pinterest a while back it has become a regular staple in our house and I do mean regular. What else goes better with hummus, Baba Ganoush, or tabouli? I find that I get the best results when I cook them one by one on the stove top, takes longer but so delicious. -Stephanie

    1. :) We love it too. Thanks for the tip about the stovetop cooking. I'll try it tonight because we are having it again. I haven't tried Baba Ganoush do you char your eggplant?

  2. susan and steph- you two are dorky foodies too! haha. charring eggplant :) susan- my favorite treat that's healthier than regular ice cream ( I think) is fresh beries tossed in the freezer and then splashed with milk and a little sugar, but i bet almond milk & honey would be just as tasty! i love falafel too!!
