Weekly dinner roundup #2

This week, little o was surely amazed at the flavorful, and colorful foods on our plates each evening. Shown up above, Nat explains to little o what we will be eating that evening. Chick peas, (pois chiches), cauliflower (chou-fleur), brussel sprouts (choux de bruxelles) and carmelized onions a top of pearled couscous.

Nat also made a delicious pasta dish with clams and spinach. He paired it with a frisee salad with figs, sauteed potatoes and a balsamic vinagrette. The figs were picked locally from our very own fig tree!

Nat and I both helped out in the kitchen on this one-shrimp tacos-yum-this is one of my all time favorite meals. I can eat tacos most nights of the week with some, shrimp, veggie...
This one had shrimp mixed with zucchini, onions, & mushrooms in a taco seasoning sauce. On top we also added pinto beans, cilantro and shredded cabbage.

One of Nat's signature dishes is his amazing Pizza he makes from scratch. It is so fun seeing him prepare the dough, as he swirls and flings it up into the air as if we were in a pizzeria in Italy! Ahhh...someday. Each pizza has their own unique ingredients and I never know what toppings to expect until I see it piping hot right out of the oven. This one had eggplant and portobello mushrooms. I spied the eggplant earlier that day and was secretly hoping he would use it:)
