→ This never happened.: What's for lunch? Vegetarian lasagna.
I like to cook a large batch of something-or-other at the start of the week so I have lunches to take to work. This week I chose to make this veggie lasagnafrom Pinch of Yum.
The recipe is pretty simple — especially since it calls for no-boil noodles — but chopping all the veggies was time-consuming. That’s probably my fault, though, since I may have gone a little overboard with my veggies: red onion, yellow and orange peppers, zucchini, asparagus, broccoli, and baby bella mushrooms (not to mention the baby spinach mixed in with the ricotta).
I’ve gladly eaten this all week, and I’m happy to have a few more servings tucked in the freezer for a rainy day.

Remember that #epicfail I had with the Meyer Lemon and Matcha Marble Pound Cake? How the sides were getting burned since the inside wasn’t getting baked in time? Remember how I also swore to never make a loaf cake again? Yeah, that lasted me like two seconds. As soon as I saw this recipe over at Averie Cooks, one of my favorite bloggers, I just had to give the loaf pan another try. And boy was I glad I did because it was far from an #epicfail. This bread baked just in the right allotted amount of time, and it turned out to be such a light and fluffy, fruitilicious loaf of bread. Did I really just say “fruitilicious”? Oh man. Well, you get my point. It’s a cinch to put together, and you’ll have a perfect loaf of bread to serve your breakfast needs as you’re darting out the door to work. Thanks for inspiring me to make loafs again, Averie!

Strawberry Banana Bread (adapted from Averie Cooks):
Yields 1 9-inch loaf
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray; then line the baking dish with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, sugars, canola oil, egg white and vanilla; beat until well combined.
Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
Add the strawberries and gently toss to combine.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan; use a rubber spatula to smooth the top.
Top with strawberries and banana slices, using your fingertips to gently press them into the batter.
Place into oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway! Winners for the donut pan will be picked on Friday, April 20th and announced Monday.

→ Dollar Friendly Meals: Spring Vegetables with Ham and Gnocchi
It’s spring. That means that asparagus is cheap. Asparagus is a favorite around here, so this means that with prices plummeting, you can be sure to expect this nutritious vegetable appearing on the menu until further notice.
About the recipe: this dish is satisfying and rich, yet there’s no cheese. How? We’ve implemented the creamy illusion of starch. See, this is a one pot meal (nice, eh?), meaning that we actually cook the gnocchi with the vegetables and ham, creating a thick, flavorful sauce. So enjoy, and don’t feel bad about it.
