what i am eating #4

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post from your blog.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!

I think this meal is quickly becoming my favorite:


Peppers, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers.  All from the farmers' market (except for my peppers!).  A little salt and a splash of balsamic vinegar, yum!  


I also made a spicy coleslaw.  I was originally inspired by this recipe, but the recipe wasn't in front of me, so I improvised.

1 head of green cabbage (from farmers' market)
2 green peppers (from my garden)
1/2 onion (farmers market)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 chipotle in adobo, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

It was delicious, even better the next day!  I love spicy stuff, so this is right up my alley.  I think carrots would have been good in here as well.  Actually most veggies would probably have worked well.  I think next time I might throw some tomatoes in for more color.

And finally, last night I decided to do make your own pizzas.  The kids always love to do that.  Plus with the abundance of veggies we have available to us right now, why not.  Typically when fresh tomatoes are available we skip the pizza sauce, and just pile on the tomatoes with a little olive oil and salt.

Jack's pizza

Emma's pizza
Emma still doesn't like cheese, which is fine for me since I am trying to stay away from it too.  Jack and Matt love the cheese though :-)

So what are you eating this week?  Please link up below!

  1. Everything looks delicious. We do a lot of pizza. I finally found a recipe for pizza dough that we love and can be done in the bread machine, which makes it easy on me!

  2. I might have to try that first salad since I have all those ingredients in my fridge as I type! And that spicy cole slaw sounds tasty too!
