Recipes - Week of June 6

This week we had dinner plans with some friends and went downtown for the Celebrity Indians Game, so I only planned for 2 dinners, but made a couple other meals for Lucy during the day...

Jimmy Johns-like Subs- this isn't really a recipe, but I have been craving Jimmy Johns so much that I decided to buy some french bread and make myself a veggie sub and Ben a turkey sub. Definitely a make again, this was super easy and really filling, next time I'd probably make half the loaf so we don't waste so much.

Veggie Sub:
Avocado spread (basically quacamole)
Provolone Cheese
Low Fat Mayo

Turkey Sub:
Tomato (although Ben doesn't like tomatoes, so I left it off)
Low Fat Mayo

*no sprouts bc I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to eat them when you're prego

Taco Salad
- this is a staple at our house, I think it's pretty healthy (we use low fat ground beef and low fat sour cream) and Ben loves it, so it's one of the few recipes we are both happy with! I just throw lettuce (romaine if I'm feeling really healthy), ground beef, tomato, cheese, salsa, low fat sour cream, and a couple chips in a bowl and it's ready to go!

*these two meals work well together because I could use leftover lettuce and tomato in the salad and didn't have to waste any fresh veggies!

Carrot and Broccoli Orzo- Erin gave me this recipe to try out for Lucy and it was definitely a hit, I will definitely make this again, but maybe add a little more broccoli and a little less carrots (for my own personal taste preference).

Banana Nut Bread- Make Again. I did part whole wheat flour and part regular, and also added some walnuts. This was a hit with Ben and I, but Lucy didn't really seem to like it (which is who I was really making it for!)

Tiramisu Cake- Made this for our dinner with friends... we were in charge of dessert and it was Italian night! This was is a maybe, it took a lot of time to prepare and was kind of a mess to put together, so I'd probably only make it if someone had a birthday that really liked tiramisu.

Maybe I'll get fancy and add actually take some pictures of what I make in the future... we'll see
