this week's menu: #5

Portobello Burger & Parmesan Potatoes - Last week, I got two portobellos from work via the food bank (thanks Marijke!).  I destemmed them and soaked them in a bowl with some olive oil, tamari, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, paprika, basil, salt pepper, and red chili flakes.  I cooked them in the cast iron until tender and added some cheddar cheese near the end.  I topped my burger off with some ketchup and Nayonaise, that I bought from the new Grocery Outlet near our house, for 49 cents!!
Willis made his famous Parmesan Potatoes and as always, the meal was delicious.

Baked Potato Soup - my favorite recipe.  I love this soup.  It is so easy and so delicious.  I skip the bacon and just use olive oil and bacon salt.  I used leeks from the garden, instead of onion; veggie stock instead of chicken broth; and hot pepper flakes instead of hot sauce.

I was at work all night and just ate leftover soup.  I am not sure what Willis made.

Proper Eats I had the kid's burrito and a side of chips and salsa.  Willis had the Proper Plate.  I love this place.  It's an organic vegan cafe (but you can cheat and get dairy cheese added to things) and market.  They have an amazing bulk section in the market and the food in the cafe is always amazing. 

Sushi Mazi - I went out to dinner with my family and we attempted to go to Papa G's.  Unfortunately, it was kind of crowded, so we went to a sushi restaurant a couple of block away.

Horse Brass Pub - We went out for the third night in a row. Gasp!  But, it was for a good cause:  Courtney's 30th birthday!!!!!
