Here's what we ate last week - we're already in week ten of our meal planning.
Monday: Steak and Potatoes – yum! My favourite meal.
All of the recipes, other than Monday, were from the Clean Eating January-February 2012 issue. You can order that issue here:
Monday: I forgot to take meat out of the freezer in the morning, so we had frozen pizza. Oops - I guess it wasn't horrible because it wasn’t take out.
Tuesday: Beef and Broccoli Penne – the meat was marniated in orange juice, and that really made this meal. It was healthy chinese. The boys weren’t a big fan though.
Wednesday: I must be going senile because I don’t remember what we had for dinner tonight. Seriously, how can I forget what we ate four days ago?
Thursday: Thai Chicken Tacos – this was a crock pot meal - messy but really good. To make true Thai food, you use a lot of peanut sauce and peanut butter, but Zach is allergic to peanuts – so almond butter was our replacement. It was fantastic.
Friday: Taco Bowls – this was a taco salad without the fried tortilla shell. It was delicious.
Saturday: Chicken Pasta – this was a made up meal by me. We chopped chicken into small chunks, cooked it with onion and red peppers and a can of diced tomatoes, mixed it with cooked pasta and cheese and baked it for 20 minutes in the oven.
We're doing really well with trying new meals every week. There are some favourites that we repeat, but not many. I'm happy that my family is open to me trying new recipes most days - cooking is much more fun that way.
