Lisa: What We're Eating

Last week, this week:

Grilled salmon - We're trying to eat fish once a week, and grilling is so quick and easy. Made a lot for Sunday dinner, so it also became spring greens salad with salmon, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and sesame-soy dressing, and a salmon-filled onigiri (rice ball) for my daughter's lunch box
Chinese broccoli with garlic and oyster sauce
Shrimp tacos in corn tortillas with avocado, salsa and lime

Roasted beets - 6-year-old is so excited. She loves beets. Planning on a beet and feta salad.

Blanched beet greens served cold with soy sauce
Roasted sweet potatoes - 6-year-old demanded to pick out her own and is even more excited about this than about the beets
Simple pasta - Fusili with fresh fava beans, garlic and butter - for the kids; they loved shelling and skinning the favas
Fresh sugar snap peas and snow peas from the garden
Champagne mangoes
Navel oranges, strawberries, apples
Yogurt and fruit smoothies and smoothie popsicles with chunks of fruit
Turkey sausages, potatoes, sugar snap peas
