Real Food Menu for Week of 8.31.2020

Does it weird you out when food bloggers post pictures of food with bites taken out of it? It does me. Like, I don’t need to see your dental imprint right now. This isn’t Criminal Minds.

I cut the Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites below with a knife, not my teeth. Mostly because I love you, but also to show you the texture inside. (Some of you have said that you’re weird about food textures.) We’ve all got our quirks, right?

This week’s quirky menu:

Mark’s Breakfast:
Rainbow Frittata – New Recipe! This would make a nice brunch dish; wait just before serving to top with tomatoes, avocado and your favorite hot sauce.

Mark’s Lunch:
Chicken Pineapple Curry – Here’s an old fav. This mild curry is great for meal prep because it keeps for a few days in the fridge, freezes well and reheats beautifully.

Vegan Macaroni Salad – New Recipe! I’ve made the traditional southern macaroni salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and onions a million times, but I have to say I rather like the different mix of veggies here! This makes a massive bowl of salad, perfect for parties. Or, make it on Sunday and eat off of it all week long. If you have the time, use Southern Living’s pasta salad pro tip.

Greek Chicken Soup – Another favorite. The lemon juice adds a nice brightness to this dish.

Kale Salad with Apricots and Almonds – Lightly sweet with just a little crunch from the almonds, this version is second only to our favorite Convert Kale Salad.

Cucumber and Strawberry Salad with Poppyseed Dressing – Because sometimes you just want a light, refreshing salad for dinner. I was skeptical of the amount of vinegar in the dressing, but it’s balanced by the sweetness of the berries.

Snacks: Jicama Sticks with Chili-Lime Dip – We’re serving cucumber slices with this as well. If you like a little extra kick, add a touch of cayenne or a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce.

Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites – These fun-sized alternatives to a Larabar (which we love!) need just a touch of salt, so I added 1/4 tsp to my batch. Total yield = 18 bites.

I hope your week is quirky AND fun-sized!
