I am back

Starting this week because honestly, I don't remember what we had last week. I know there was a roasted chicken in there somewhere because we had 2 other meals out of it.

10. Chicken pot pie from scratch.
11. Chicken enchillada bake
12. Cuban black beans and corn fritters

I didn't meal plan this month yet but really need to sit down and do that. Maybe tonight as DH has toddler bed time duty.

The goal is to try at least one new recipe per week so I can broaden my options. This week it is the cuban black beans and corn fritters. Really looking forward to those. It smells amazing in the house right now.

I also have a red beans and rice on the list for next week, need to pick up the sausage first.

REVISED!

Ok, so on the 12th I decided to be lazy. I had a ton of the Shrimp and tomatoes left so I decided to add a jar (shivers!) of spaghetti sauce and do revamped leftovers. I forgot to soak my beans so now I have to figure something out for tonight - it's probably gonna be a sandwich night.

Since my last post of the 8th:

9: Cheese enchiladas & rice
10: roast beef with yorkshire pudding, mushy veg, and steamed peas and carrots
11: sandwiches
12: FFY
13: Chicken quesadilla, beans and leftover rice

I am under THE deadline of the year this week for my very part-time job, so I will be lucky if we don't manage to at least hit the local Italian place once before Friday... or maybe on Friday after my deadline. They serve wine.

1. Bean, rice & veggie meat burritos & gorditas
2. Black bean & corn chopped salads
3. Pizza, ice cream & cake to celebrate DS1's birthday.
4. Vegan sausages & gnocchi with broccoli in garlic & oil
5. Grilled chik'n patties, sauteed mushrooms & onions, and roasted sweet & white potatoes.
6. Pineapple & tofu fried rice and tofu massaman curry (yes this was actually take-out, but since I am doing this from a $ saving perspective & I didn't pay for it, I am not counting it )
7. Frozen lasagna, not exactly home cooked but it wasn't eating out either
8. Corn pancakes, bacon & fruit
9. Taking a lasagna to grandma's birthday potluck
10. Dinner at MIL's house
11. Spagetti & TJ's frozen meatless meatballs
12. Going to Ruby's for free kids meal night (planning this for weeks)

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- made the Three Sisters Stew, it stewed for too long thanks to a nap-resistant toddler but still turned out very yummy! I was skeptical that the delicata squash would be pleasant with the skin still on but I am so glad I went that route for the ease. ....this stew is delicious, cinnamon and salty go surprisingly well!

ever closer:
lentils w/ spinach, roasted carrots
crock pot chicken
w/ lemon & garlic quinoa salad (FtWF)
pot roast with parsnips
leftovers with different veggies
need 1 more ingredient for the parsnip soup with garam marsala- the spice mixture smells soo yummy I am looking forward to it! The only way I can get the amount of chives this recipe calls for without spending $10 is to go to a store that requires a car.

January 1 - Franks and beans. Exciting, I know.
January 2 - Cereal for lunch, pasta with sauce and garlic bread for dinner.
January 3 - DD asked for bean and cheese nachos.
January 4 - Fresh from the oven, homemade bread with butter, jelly, and peanut butter (not all together!) We ate so much, nobody was hungry for a 'real' dinner. Have black beans soaking for tomorrow.
January 5 - Turkey dogs wrapped in crescent rolls.
January 6 - The beans still haven't made it onto plates yet. I was planning on making sweet potato burritos with the black beans, but I napped with the kids, so we had a mishmash for dinner - yogurt, carrots, salad, random stuff.
January 7 - I don't even remember what we had last night, but I know we ate it here.
January 8 - Sweet potato burritos, finally! Hoping to use up the rest for taco soup sometime over the weekend.
January 9 - Scrambled eggs, bacon, english muffins = breakfast for dinner
January 10 - Red beans and rice with sausage
January 11 - The kids had pb&j's with apples (their choice); I had a salad.
January 12 - My dad took us out to dinner, so technically we ate out, but we didn't pay for it.
January 13 - Frozen pizza
January 14 - Maple glazed salmon filets with cheesy broccoli

Single WAHM to 5yo DD, 2yo DS, and forever 7 week old angel DD.

10. Vietnamese roast chicken in the crockpot, chilean squash (from moosewood cookbook) and leftover coleslaw.
11. Leftover chicken, green beans and potatoes, maybe a pilaf
12. leftover chicken, squash casserole, pilaf
13. cauliflower cheese pie (moosewood), chicken, squash and two donuts from the grocery store
14. ravioli from a bag plus sauteed chard and mushrooms
15. sometimes the inlaws take us out, but if not, maybe some pizza on a tortilla and salad

I kind of slacked off for a few days in updating, but now that I'm back here, it's kind of nice to see how well I'm doing this month! Kind of gives me a kick in the pants for the rest of the month.
