dinners from the past 2 weeks...

I love food.
This is no secret.

My boyfriend really enjoys cooking.
I like cooking too, but it comes more naturally to Adam... And he is really good at it!

Like everything else that I love, I tend to take photos of particularly exciting or yummy meals with my iPhone.
It has become a "thing" for me to photograph our plates before eating (poor Adam).
Here are some from the last couple of weeks...

On a side yet related note, I got Adam a Tagine for Christmas and some of these were made in it or inspired by tagine cooking. I will post more on Tagines another time... because they are really that awesome!

Pumpkin and lentil Tagine... YUM!

The second (out of 3 so far) try at an Algerian chickpea dish (on top of quinoa)...
MY GOD My favorite this year. Sooo tasty and satisfying! And easy!

Slow cooked beef (with whole onions!) over quinoa and greens
(spinach & kale & arugula) and a fried egg on top.

Chicken with Apricot and Almond tagine... I was excited for this one. We had been drooling at the recipe card for a while. And it did not disappoint! Sweet, tender, tasty. Our friend Ana made the salad, which consisted of freshly picked greens from her garden! Nothing better than that!

Third try at the Algerian chickpea dish. Oh yum.
Served on top of jasmine brown rice with cilantro as a garnish.
And a kale, spinach, arugula, sunflower seed, and avocado salad on the side.
