Tuesday Food Day

Sometimes I feel like I eat the same things over and over so this may be very boring for you!!!  I  did try out a new recipe  last night that my friend Natalie posted yesterday on her blog from the NY Times.  I tweaked it a little and used Israeli Cous Cous instead of Quinoa and added a few different ingredients.


Spicy Quinoa, Cucumber and Tomato Salad




  I had to put the cous cous in a separate bowl because I made too many vegetables to top it off.  This is what's in my version:


Silver queen corn (off the cob)
 tomatoes
cucumbers
avocado
Vidalia onion
Basil
Cilantro
S&P


Lime Vinaigrette
Lime
Olive Oil
Champagne vinegar
S&P





I must show you my burned pot of cous cous.  Fortunately it did not ruin the entire pot, just the bottom layer.  It made a cool design though, right?  I blame it on the kids:)





The Smorgasbord





I also roasted okra in the oven and made my favorite raw zucchini salad.  




Big R made grilled chicken to put with his meal and used Trader Joes Tzatziki Sauce on the side.  He highly recommends this stuff!!

Your version looks awesome! I need to know about roasting okra in the oven. I have never done that but now I want too! and I was going to be impressed if your hubs ate a totally meatless meal!! I could eat vegetarian every night but Matt always needs his meat!

These all look delish. I just pinned the salad so I will be sure to make it. Great find on the herringbone rug!
