Red Lentil Pasta + Dinner at Toku + Other Recent Meals


It’s Wednesday already! I was off on Monday which always makes the week go so fast.

I have some recent meals worth sharing so let’s take a look.

I had a bialy with vegetable cream cheese at Bagel Boss the other day for lunch. So simple and always perfect!


I picked up Chopt again for myself and my friend. We both order from the Chopt app and then I bring both salads to her store to eat lunch.

Sweet Green is opening in the area really soon but I prefer Chopt. It’s not that I don’t like Sweet Green and I am sure I will sometimes go too, but I still really like my Chopt salad even though it’s pretty basic.


My son’s birthday was last week! We went to Toku for his birthday dinner. I snuck a picture of the crispy rice tuna appetizer, my absolute favorite.


I think it was in last week’s post that I mentioned how much I enjoy Trader Joe’s organic red lentil pasta. If you haven’t tried it yet, you just must.

I made the red lentil pasta for dinner the other night with a salad. It was so good! I cooked the pasta (it takes like three minutes!), drained it, and then added sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Also, this is the first picture I took using my new iPhone 14!


Trust me, I’m still eating a lot of pizza.

I always get a whole wheat margarita slice from Mario’s at least once a week and then I also go to La Piazza to bring home the grandma pizza.

Of course, the corner slice got cut off in the below picture. I didn’t realize when I quickly took the picture that I missed the best part of the pizza! I love a corner slice.
