Hello and Merry Christmas Eve friends! I hope you are preparing to enjoying some relaxing holiday time. While I have been away from family before on Christmas this is the first time I have been away from them in another country….and in a non winter climate 🙂 I am hoping to pick up a turkey breast today that I will enjoy tomorrow for supper. Time for a look at some of the food I have been enjoying this week.
I decided to enjoy some extra vitamin C with breakfast before heading out to run errands with the crowds of people on the weekend.
Discovered this hummus that is made locally in Phoenix. I had sampled it at Costco and picked up a few containers for a great deal. I have been spreading it on sandwiches and of course with veggies. It is really good. Although I know hummus isn’t difficult to make I just can never be bothered to whip it up.
Lunch was a delicious plate from Desert Roots Kitchen. I tried their dolmas for the first time and this excellent pineapple chipotle black bean hummus. It was amazing.
On Sunday while I binged the Serial Podcast I whipped up this fresh lunch. I finished Serial today and loved each episode. If you haven’t listened to it I would highly recommend it. I found this new organic multi grain bread by Alpine Valley Bread at Costco that is made locally in Mesa. The slices are on the small side but it tasted good. I picked up some more of these huge raspberries at Costco and was amazed at how sweet they tasted.
While wandering through the farmer’s market on Sunday morning I stumbled upon a stall that had these great frozen meals with simple basic ingrediants. I picked up few of their offerings to try out. Tonight I had sausage, peppers, and onions. It was really really good. The sauce was so flavourful. The man said they use no sugar or salt in the sauce and simply put a whole carrot in the sauce to sweeten it naturally. How cool is that?!
I added some roasted veggies on the side that I topped with some hummus.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday season and can enjoy some time with family and friends
