Happy Sunday to you all! If you’re checking in today, then you probably noticed things are looking just slightly different around here. We’ve made a few updates, but for the most part, your reading experience shouldn’t be too much different. I’ll dive in to things a little more tomorrow, but for now, I’d love to hear any feedback you might have. Something looking funky? Something you’re liking? Let me know! You guys are the ones who come and read (thank you!!!) so I want to make sure your viewing experience is a positive one.
That said…it is Sunday and all, so let’s get to checking out last week’s meals. We had some good ones, for sure, and I was SO happy to be back to feeling more organized.
Sunday: Dinner out with family after my 2 Nana’s wake
Monday: Turkey bacon paninis with french fries
It had been a long time since we last had a panini and it was soooo. good.
Tuesday: Chili with cornbread
We have a couple of leftover containers of chili in our freezer, so I just thawed one overnight, reheated, and cooked up a quick batch of cornbread (to make it even simpler, I used a box mix from Krusteaz).
Wednesday: Fiesta Bowl with Mexican Rice
I got the idea for this recipe after seeing one just like it on the Trader Joe’s website. I made the Mexican Rice exactly as listed, and it is seriously some delicious stuff. It makes a HUGE batch, too, so you get lots of leftovers. I then just cooked some ground sirolin with taco seasoning, heated a bag of frozen corn (we were going simple here), mashed an avocado with some garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper, and tossed in some Mexican shredded cheese. I meant to do black beans too, but I forgot ‘em.
Thursday: Spaghetti & Meatballs
When we first made this recipe a few weeks ago, it made enough to freeze two more meals worth (each meal about 2-3 servings) so I grabbed one out of the freezer and reheated. SUPER easy! My original plan was to serve mine over some zoodles, but apparently my zucchini was too big to fit in the spiralizer and it wasn’t working…? Then I tried cutting it in half and that just did me in. Ah well…there’s nothing wrong with regular pasta either.
Saturday: TBD for now…BUT, if you’re in need of some ideas, here are a few favorites from the archives to try out!
- Crab Cakes with Avocado-Mango Salsa
- Double Duty Quesadilla Casserole (<—perfect for making one for now and freezing one for later!)
- Bruschetta Chicken Bake (<—such an old recipe, which I should really re-blog, but it’s still a good one)
- Chicken Souvlaki Pitas with Tahini Sauce
- Light & Tasty Zucchini Casserole
So let’s hear it – what’s on the menu this week?
