Recent Eats

With the business of the holidays and recent interview travel, it's been a while since I've done a post strictly about food.  So without further delay, here's a glimpse of the things that have been coming out of the kitchen lately.

This breakfast sandwich was especially delicious thanks to the whole wheat garlic-studded roll I discovered at Whole Foods.  The crisp exterior paired with the chewy interior paired flawlessly with scrambled eggs with spinach and tomato.

Oatmeal has made a return to the weekend breakfast rotation.  This bowl of cinnamon raisin oats was topped with cranberry sauce and sunflower seeds.

Lunch in Philadelphia at Amino Juice Bar included a kale salad and vegan butternut squash bisque.

Breakfast in Philadelphia one morning included this cranberry apple scone from Reading Terminal Market.

Liquid Earth in Baltimore was a warm spot for lunch on a cold and blustery day.  The "Picnic" sandwich included a wheat baguette, honey mustard, melted brie, apple and pear slices, red onion, and walnuts.

Two hours on the bike required a protein packed lunch to recover, including scrambled veggie-filled eggs and toast (one slice with cranberry sauce and another with hummus).

Dinner at home over my Christmas vacation featured grilled salmon and pineapple over a bed of spinach with an avocado dressing and a homemade stuffing roll.

After an afternoon at Top Golf in Alpharetta, we dined at Foundation Social Eatery.  Their Yelp reviews are overwhelmingly positive and so we were excited for a great farm-to-table style dinner.  Unfortunately, the dishes were far from outstanding and we were all disappointed compared to the hype we anticipated.  It wasn't a bad meal, but certainly not a restaurant we would return to any time soon.
Baby Arugula Salad with Ricotta Salata, Figs, and Walnuts
The Crisp Spanish Octopus was incredibly tender and our favorite dish of the night
Seasonal Vegetable Plate
Can someone please explain what part of a pile of corn over a pea puree and topped with arugula is considered either "seasonal" or entree-sized?

One of my favorite easy weeknight meals is a "roasted plate."  This one included tofu, zucchini, and sweet potato all tossed with coconut oil and seasonings.
New Year's Day dinner was enjoyed while watching college football.
Black-eyed peas over collard greens, roasted carrots, avocado slices, and a corn muffin.
An "empty the fridge" kale salad topped with avocado, corn, black beans, tomato, tofu, and balsamic vinaigrette.
Pancakes are the perfect Sunday morning post-call breakfast .
This stack of pumpkin pancakes was topped with cinnamon raisin peanut butter, banana slices, blackberries, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, and syrup.
