Another month! I personally haven't eaten out at all recently but of course I live with my mom and brother and can not control what they do. Frustratingly, they eat out even when I have prepared meals for them. But I can still do this for me!
air- oh no, I hope I can make a palatable pot roast! Any ideas where you went wrong? My mom used to always make them in the crock pot and they often turned out dry. I was still planning to use the crock pot, just trying my luck it would be better
. Well I have the pot roast already so that will be dinner one way or another!
mamakah- thanks for the site suggestion! That is excellent for this thread and for meal planning in general. Does it save your pantry items until you use them? Guess I will have to find out!!
We are still getting over a cold so I've been trying to cut down on mucous-forming foods...
1- Mexican Casserole my mom made with "veggie crumbles"- sooo not into it. I also made a soup with root veggies and noodles... both of these turned out pretty spicy because we used canned tomatoes with chiles and had no idea the generic brand was so hot!!
2- It was just Dahlia and I, and got a little late after grocery shopping, so I sauteed some kale and sweet potatoes together for dinnertime snack and then made oatmeal raisin cookies after she went to bed (from the Quaker lid.. not very impressive).
3- made a quinoa blackbean salad
, angel hair with marinara... and black bean brownies
pot roast in the crock with carrots and new potatoes, salad with butterleaf, bell peppers, goat cheese
use up the rest of the black beans I cooked in blackbean soup, recipe from the book Eat Your Colors (good read)Lentil red pepper dip
for snacking, along with leftover quinoa black bean salad
then tacos out of leftover pot roast, and black beans and rice with the leftover black bean soup....
We will probably add something new by Sunday or Monday, and the leftovers will become lunches.
