Friday night in

Leftover night!

This goat brie is so good!  Creamy and mild and the perfect pair to the Jillz crackers.  We had almonds, dates and nectarine jam too…the sweet and savory contrast.

Kyle had rye wasa crackers.

Since dinner was so random and snacky I had a bunch of chocolate for dessert.

And then wound up feeling a little sick…oops.  Fail.

I’m going to try to get my sweet tooth back under control by taking a little hiatus from desserts.  Going forward.

I did stroller strides on Friday morning and skipped breakfast because my stomach was feeling off.

For lunch I made use of my prep – sautéed Brussels and a champagne vinaigrette – which I added to massaged kale, half an avo, candied pecans, and dried cranberries.  I can’t wait to roast more squash this weekend!  The salad was good, but missing that one extra ingredient to put it into amazing territory.

I was supposed to go out for dinner and drink with some girls but couldn’t make it in the end.  Luckily I had a gobble meal to the dinner rescue.

I loved the idea of this miso soy Buddha bowl as soon as I saw it on the menu.  I usually don’t go for the vegan options on gobble, but this one was unique enough that I decided to do it.

Also I saw that the tofu was Chinese five spice flavored and thought it was going to be HODO SOY brand (which I love!) and I was right!

I wasn’t sure if the kids would like it (they did) so I made extra tofu just in case (also using HODO SOY which I randomly happened to have on hand – usually I just buy the TJs or the Nasoya organic ones depending on what store I’m at).

The combo of carrots and edamame with an Asian sauce fits…but adding in beets and red onion?  Well I was slightly skeptical, but it was really delicious!

Quinoa for days!

Like I said, the kids ended up liking the five spice tofu, but I started them off with the plain Hodo Soy one.

Lime wedges, cilantro and avo on top…looking fancy fancy for sure.

This is what I love about gobble.  I’d never merge all these ingredients and yet, it worked out great.  The kids didn’t know what to make of the beets at first.  P loved them but V was wishy washy. P and I were happy to help take a few off her plate though.

After dinner my sister came to spend the night because they were breaking up their drive on the way to Tahoe.  For that reason I was happy my girls night was off because I haven’t seen her in a while.

The kids were in RARE form that night.  P is going through something that I won’t bother to put on the internet, but suffice it to say, there’s a lot of emotional stuff that (we think?) goes along with oit.  We are only told to look out for the obvious symptoms, but the same kind of thing happened with dairy.  His body is going through a lot and it’s impossible for us to understand, so I’m just trying to get through this phase.  IT IS EXHAUSTING.

TGIF my friends.

    Rye wasa are the only kind worth eating, good call kyle! However, goat milk dairy is such a no go for me :/ i wish i liked it but after trying various yogurts and kefeir and chevre, cheddar, brie, etc it all has a little too much goaty barn funk for my taste. Ugh.
    Sounds like sis showed up just when you needed some extra moral support….

    That gobble meal looks totally amazing! I can get Hodo tofu- but try not to since it’s a few bucks more- it is seriously the best tofu i have bought. (Fresh made restaurant tofu is another kind all together but potentially my most favorite). My parents order sun basket occasionally, i keep telling them to try gobble! Although they would never order this meal (insert eye roll emoji here)

    Bummer for you, I kinda like that goaty funk and I think it definitely lends itself to a good brie. I only sometimes tolerate goat dairy but I like it so I just roll the dice with my gut. Anyway, have you ever tried sunbasket? I’ve been curious about it bc it’s the only one (I think?) that’s organic.

    Since i became lactose intolerant back in the dark days of soy milk that tasted like beans you had to buy at the health food store and zero nondairy cheese options of any kind i just never got used to having much dairy of any kind it in my diet aside from yogurts (i think the probiotics and good bacteria make it more tolerable?) So it’s not like i miss cheese since we were never that close 😉
    My parents love sun basket but since it’s not in nyc i never tried it- i’m not especially interested in them since i live alone and do a lot of meal prep on weekends. The only two i have considered are purple carrot (not in nyc though) or sakara life which isn’t so much meal kit but already prepared meals and $$$. I gave my bff a delvery of Marley spoon (martha stewart’s meal delivery) after she had the baby yet had her parents staying with her- specifically so her cooking impaired mother could be helpful and make a decent meal (!! LOL but sooo true!!) they then ordered it a few additional times during her maternity leave.

    HAHA. Cracking up at the comment about soy milk tasting like beans because it’s SO TRUE. Although I kinda liked that flavor?!? Total nostalgia. I recall purple carrot’s meals looking really unique and appetizing but thats not surprising bc I think it’s Bittman’s company? I have a hard time justifying the cost of meal delivery services for veg ingreds though. I haven’t checked out marley spoon’s meals but I’m going to now just out of curiosity.
    PS youre a good friend 🙂
