Green Goddess Bowls

Green Goddess Bowls by Eating with a Purpose A week into his residency, I asked Doug what he felt like eating for dinner- his reply, “something fresh and healthy”.  While cooking is something I do for pleasure, I do like a little inspiration when deciding what to prepare.  Doug’s response was pretty typical.  I do love that he doesn’t fit the stereotype of your typical meat and potatoes loving kind of guy, but he isn’t the greatest at coming up with meal ideas (sorry Doug).  What came to my mind when I thought “fresh and healthy” was the color green- hence, the inspiration for these delicious bowls.  Perhaps they’ll make any appearance again on St. Patty’s day?  Anyways, we were both pretty pleased with the result.  We may have put the sauce on just about everything this week…

What I Ate This Week: June 26-July 2

Happy belated Canada Day and 4th of July!  I hope everyone enjoyed this long weekend.  We were able to catch a Mariners game in between Doug’s shifts and tried one of the many great restaurants in Seattle.  I tried a couple new recipes this week, and was very pleased with both.  I have yet to try a dish from the Foodie Physician that I don’t love- her Savory Naan Bread Pudding was no exception.  I also made one of my go-to dishes from Pinch of Yum, Thai Sweet Potato Curry.  Enjoy the 4th!
