Eats this Week

Our week started out with a lot of vegetables.  On Monday evening we had a warm salad for dinner; it was loaded with roasted brussels, radishes, zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli.  Those veggies were on a bed of sauteed kale/ garlic, and raw spinach/ arugula.

On Tuesday we made a soup stock with veggies and a ham bone (that we had frozen from the ham we made recently).  We then used that to make a big pot of borscht, which we served topped with dill and sour cream.

We had enough soup for lunches for a couple days, and dinner for both Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday evening we had pan seared salmon over wild rice, with a coconut curry sauce.

I baked some Saskatoon berry muffins this week:

And we tried these new kale chips, which we both really liked:

Yesterday Christopher and I met up for lunch at a new place in town, Bomb.  It's basically a Korean fast food restaurant.  We each had a bomb bowl, and they were pretty good, however not work the $15-$17 price tag.  Lunch for two came to $35.

It is way overpriced for a fast-food-type restaurant, seeing as I can get more authentic Korean food, in a hot stone bowl, at a sit-down Korean restaurant for about $13.

Last night we met up with some pals for tacos, and then Christopher's band played a Halloween show, so we came home to get ready before heading out to the venue.

They have another Halloween show tonight, so we'll be dressing up and heading out for more spoooooktacular, dancy fun.

Are you going out to any Halloween parties this weekend?  
Are you dressing up for Halloween?

Wow, that lunch sounds super over priced, especially for a fast casual type of setting!

All of the food you made last week looks awesome, though! The vegetable salad looks especially good as I love roasted vegetables!

We hosted our annual pumpkin carving party on Saturday which was fun. I made 2 kinds of chili and corn bread and a friend made pumpkin bars. We had about 10 people total. It was a really fun night! Tonight we will stay in and hand out candy. No Halloween costumes for us this year as we didn't have any parties to go to.

Why am I here??? said...

awww, the Korean restaurant is just down the street from my condo. I was so happy to see it there. I'm gonna be disappointed :(

P.S. are you planning a trip to Korea yet?

@ Jennifer - Not yet :-( We need a time when Christopher can get two weeks off in a row, but at his place of work, that's not always easy to do.

Where would you recommend authentic Korean in a stone bowl in Saskatchewan?
