1- homemade pizza, 1 pepperoni and 1 onion, red pepper, black olive. made a white bean soup
2- homemade biscuits and gravy with pot roast leftovers. made "healthy no-bake cookies
3- chicken & pasta casserole (I had enough for two last week), yummy salad. whole wheat banana bread with flax & ground oatmeal.
4- FFY. linguine marinara for a late lunch...
5- I made my first whole chicken! in the crock, rubbed it with salt, pep & paprika, and set it up in the slow cooker with lemon, garlic and rosemary... kind of like here
, but with paprika. - I saved the white bean soup! - Made medium grain brown rice & added frozen peas toward the end.
6- late snack- homemade pizza with roasted eggplant & goat cheese.. a little bit of leftover dough got made into a solitary cinnamon roll sort of thing, for which I even made icing.
7- I made the brown rice with peas again and used some strategic positioning to hide it in the fridge, since it got scarfed down so quickly last time :P leftover chicken, some zucchini... chips and salsa after the baby went to bed...
8- had a yummy salad for lunch, enchiladas with leftover chicken for dinner!
9- Mojadra- lentils and rice (a little salt) topped with seasoned carmelized onions (a little salt, cumin, coriander, pinch of cayenne) and yogurt mixed with dill.
10- pasta with shrimp, leeks, broccoli, and a little red pepper & olive oil. making a cake tonight so it will be ready to frost in the morning... finally baked some super sour sourdough I had in the works for a couple days.... also made banana bread.... as well as cheesecake-swirled brownies ....!
11- lunch out with my dad for my brother's birthday... leftovers, cake, etc.
12- leftovers all day long!!
13- Three Sisters Stew from FtWF- yum!!
14- lentils w/ spinach, roasted carrots
15- leftovers, my mom made a "pizza casserole"
16- made moroccan chicken
17- chicken with eggs for breakfast, pizza with chickpeas, potato soup got started
18- With everyone home today, we made a group effort to eat up all our leftovers for lunch
I made a whole crockpot chicken and the lemon & garlic quinoa salad from FtWF (which I kind of messed up- was overseasoned because I left the amt of dressing the same while reducing the amt of quinoa by 1/3, which I also let get too mushy while cooking- still, it) tasted excellent. Meanwhile my mom got to pureeing her potato soup and made it into loaded potato soup, very yummy. Right now I have stock on with the carcass and some carrots and celery. So again we have our leftovers cut out for us
my plan is to eat a lot of the chicken cold on a plate with a hot veg, this is just fine for me & D. Or in a lettuce wrap with provolone. I skipped on the ingredients to make stir fry, don't feel like a casserole either, but we have lots of tortillas so it will probably make a taco or quesadilla filling at some point. Also it would be a hit if I shredded some, mixed it w/ BBQ sauce, and popped it back in the fridge for someone to have a quick bbq sandwich sometime.
later this week:
parsnip soup with garam marsala
pot roast with parsnips
-good thing they're sturdy
