Roanoke played host to my favorite festival over the weekend, Go Outside Festival. We were glad that we went Friday night, because the weather was a bit of a bummer; heavy rain on Saturday night forced cancellation of Sunday’s activities. Even if you’re not the hard-core outdoorsy type *raises hand*, there is a little something for everyone. I was able to chat with the master gardeners about our Japanese Stiltgrass invasion.
Nearly every outdoor activity is represented and there are group workouts, (running, cycling, hiking, yoga, pure barre, etc.) races, shopping, food trucks, beer, wine, and loads of concerts and shows. We try to catch the lumberjack, BMX and air dog shows each year. Did I mention that the concerts and shows are free, as as are most of the sports? We’ll be back next year, Go Fest.
Now on to this week’s menu:
Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats – New Recipe! – I made these with monk fruit maple syrup, and added a dollop of sweetened greek yogurt on top.
Harvest Minestrone Soup – New Recipe! Yes, there are a lot of ingredients, here, but I’m making lunch for an entire week. I think that’s a fair trade-off for all that chopping. We each sampled a cup of soup (for purposes of recipe testing, of course!) and I’m seriously looking forward to having this for lunch. You really do need a stock pot for this one; it makes a lot of soup! This recipe would not fit into my 7.5 quart Dutch oven.
Marinated Salmon – New Recipe!
Turkey Stuffed Peppers – We made this often while I was doing keto. I modified this recipe to make it more Mediterranean Diet friendly. I’m using ground turkey instead of beef, and adding pre-cooked brown rice to the stuffing mix. While you’re at it, you might as well make extra for freezing.
Greek Chicken Soup – New Recipe!
Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry – Not the most photogenic dish on the planet, but so tasty! I added some diced carrots and left out the tomatoes. Serve over brown or cauliflower rice, with a garnish of fresh cilantro.
Southwestern Squash Casserole – This recipe is tried and true. We use arrowroot powder as the binder instead of wheat flour.
Popcorn, apples, strawberries, dragon fruit, celery and almond butter – Kroger carries Simple Truth Organic almond butter made with one ingredient: almonds – you can’t get much cleaner than that!
Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse – New Recipe!
Have a great week!
