Husband went out on a rare game night with friends, but left me hot wing-style chicken thighs in the crockpot and cornbread. I might mash up some potatoes to go alongside too.
Dinner - What Are You Having? - Page 50
I'm making Tom Kha Gai (thai coconut soup), I even went to a specialty store to get fresh lemongrass for it. I'm making it with some chicken and tofu and will also add mushrooms, fresh asparagus I need to use and some rice sticks. Probably some veggie spring rolls, too. I have a scratchy throat and a stuffy head and hoping this makes me feel better.
I'll make the kids chicken tenders, sweet potato fries, broccoli and pears.
I need to work on my menu plan for the week.
I cooked up a bag of black beans today, so we're having fish tacos: breaded cod, refried black beans, lightly fried corn tortillas, cheese, sour cream, chopped lettuce, tomato and avocado. Kids will also have carrots and pears.
I started making myself a green smoothie everyday for breakfast and am loving it, but I am going through so much produce! I need to figure out a way to fit even more fruit into the grocery budget, the added greens expense isn't bad, but the fruit is proving to be a challenge.
However, ive NEVER eaten a Brussels sprout, and ive only cooked asparagus a couple of times.... any suggestions?
