He Cooks, I Eat

Food post number 3! If you missed the other two you can find them here. This weeks menu is a short one due to traveling.


  • Sunday: Stuffed Zucchini Boats with Quinoa and Pine Nuts. I loved these, my husband woke up starving the next morning but he also didn’t have dessert which is customary in our home. My husband, Chris did not alter this recipe.
  • Monday: Salmon and Summer Veggies in Foil. Make sure you have your grocer remove the skin off of the salmon. We chopped the veggies on Sunday night to make the prep process quick.

Side Note:  My husband is a wonderful cook, so where you see italics is how he improved the meal.
