This past weekend we celebrated my nephew Dylan’s 6th birthday. There was a big party at my sister’s house complete with an appearance by Darth Vader. (Thank you again Karl for letting us put you in a costume on a hot day and having 10 kids with weapons attack you). Today and yesterday have been our days “off”. I’m still making time to complete a residency application and test a new recipe, but when you want to do those things they are not technically “work”.

My Meatless Monday lunch

The last few weeks the hubby and I have been sticking to a regular workout schedule and enjoying lots of fruit and veggie smoothies. We have also been cooking a nice meal together for lunch. I actually can’t remember the last time we had lunch at a restaurant, which means we’re saving money. While the hubby was getting his haircut this past week I was reading through a Fitness magazine to pass the time. I found a couple of recipes that sounded so good I wrote them down on the back of my receipt before we left. I decided to try the Edamame Sushi Bowl recipe first, since I’ve been on an edamame kick. I made a few modifications to make it my own, and it came out delicious!

Big Sushi Bowl serving for the hubby!

Mark really loved this recipe, especially after adding more sriracha for a spicier kick. I particularly loved the sweet ginger and sticky sushi rice. This recipe checks all the boxes for the perfect lunch, it’s easy, fast (if you pre-cook the rice), delicious, filling, and would make for a great packed lunch or picnic. While I was preparing this recipe I kept thinking it was Sunday. It just feels like a relaxing Sunday. I’m looking forward to going for a nice walk, watching French Open Tennis matches, and having Edamame Sushi Bowl leftovers. Also, wish me luck finishing our residency application!
