Chickpea Cutlet w. Carmelized Onions + Chipotle Aioli w. Lemon-Parlsey Potatoes + Garlic Broccoli
I love when I get to re-use food that I made the night before and turn it into something different. It helps with my goal of not throwing out food. I slightly heated the 2 leftover chickpea cutlets in the oven and then sliced them to use on a sandwich. All that is on the sandwich are the cutlets, caramelized onions and chipotle aioli. I would have loved to have put arugula or even just plain mesclun greens on the sandwich but I didn't have any. The chipotle aioli I made tonight is different from others that I've made with that it has capers and almonds blended into it. The only reason I put almonds into it is because it was SPICY and I didn't want to add more mayo so I though the almonds would help calm it down just a bit which I think it did and now I will forever put almonds in my recipe.

The potatoes were just roasted in the oven with olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. A few minutes before they were done I threw in some fresh parsley. Delicious. The end.
Lunch. Shells and Chreese
A month or so ago I ordered some food stuff from Food Fight. A box of Shells and Chreese Cheddar Style was one of those items. I simply bought this because I've never seen it around where I live. I know it's really easy to make my own Shells and Cheeze but I wanted to try it. It wasn't 1/2 bad. I wouldn't eat it all the time but for those days where I'm hungry around lunch time and Reno is wanting attention its rather easy to do. I also discovered yesterday that the new super Whole Foods by us carries this now which is exciting for me just to have products like this available where I live even though I usually don't eat from a box.
Speaking of Reno...
....we purchased her one of these floor gyms or whatever they are called finally..she loves it. It knocks her out.
