I’m blogging meals from last week because I forgot last weekend and I still had the listed posted to the fridge.
CSA Box: asparagus, spinach, salad mix, carrots, green garlic, fingerling potatoes, cauliflower, and grapefruit.
SAT-BBQ for J’s Bday. Potato salad-fingerling potatoes, eggs, olives, onion, pickles, etc. I think the potatoes really made the difference. There was also grilled steak and asparagus. Maple cake for dessert.
SUN-Quinoa with pine nuts and leftover steak. The quinoa recipe was adapted from a blog I follow. While it was good, everyone though it could use a bit more spices. The side salad was rather boring, but we have to use up our abundant mixed greens.
MON-Spicy pasta bake and spinach. Mmm fatty comfort food.
TUES-Mexican turnovers. I’ll blog about these later. (I actually took pictures!) They are basically hot pockets with a mexican flare. I replaced red sauce with enchillada sauce, pepperoni with chicken, carrots, bell pepper, onions, and cauliflower. While they are not completely homemade (I have to admit I purchased enchilada sauce and pizza dough, they are fast and delicious.
WED-Mushroom chicken orzo with salad.
THURS-Caramelized onion and mushroom panini with arugula pesto and roasted bell pepper. This was probably my favorite meal of the week. J might vote for the pasta bake but then again he asks for it over and over again. I love making paninis and have a lot of fun thinking of creative combos. Sometimes chicken, other times vege. The main ingredient that is featured every time is bell pepper. Not sure why but I love the charred pepper flavor in my hot sandwiches. I should really blog these sometime as they are an original recipe. I just never write down how much of everything goes into the dish.
