2014 Food Blog Challenge - The Lemon Bowl & ASSEMBLE DETROIT

Liz, from The Lemon Bowl, is from Michigan!  Grand Rapids to be exact.  This is a healthy blog, but is not vegetarian by any means.

Dessert First - Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Treats

Snoops gets very excited when I make things with sugar.  Silly dog.  While this did taste good, I feel that it wasn't all too healthy.  While the ingredients were fine, there was a ton of honey in here.  I would recommend making it with less honey, but then it might not hold its bar shape.

Breakfast - Slow Cooker Banana Nut Oatmeal

I'll be truthful here - this stuff was nasty.  I just put the rest of it down the disposal  :(  Sadly, I doubled the recipe for the whole week.  It made a ton and it did not stay too well in the fridge.  If I were trying it again, I would wait till serving to add the banana and walnuts.  Steel cut oats are not really my thing..

5 Minute Wonton Soup

First and foremost, this did not take 5 minutes!  It was amazing though!!  I threw a ton of kale in here and it was still amazing.  My dinner guests were happy as well  ;)

Soba Noodle Salad

This was awesome!!!  I love me some soba noodles  :)

Fried Eggs with Cheesy Brown Rice and Salsa

This was good too.  I am starting to like the comforting taste of rice, beans, cheese and salsa.  Rice cooker is loving these meals too.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Yes, you read that right...I bought a chicken.  A $10 chicken from Whole Foods.

I love love LOVE Indian food.  This was amazingly good, and I was sad I had to leave early the next day and not eat leftovers!!  Served with a side of cucumber yogurt raita.

Quinoa with Acorn Squash, Apples and Walnuts

Tasty and healthy!  Best of both worlds!

We had a pretty hectic week, which ended in me leaving to Michigan Tech for the Society of Women Engineers Region H Conference.

On Monday, we attended ASSEMBLEs Assemble@TheMax in Detroit

We enjoyed sliders, PBR, Jameson and the speakers.  Very interesting material and exciting to think about all the potential we have in Detroit.

Up for next week - Foodie Crush
