I’m really loving these weekly meals posts. In a way, they’re holding me accountable and helping me remember to eat a variety throughout the week.
sunday: Cheesy Skillet Sweet Potato “Skillet Chili” via The Cozy Apron (we cut down on the cheese by not adding it into the chili, we just added some sharp cheddar to the top. We also ended up pureeing the steamed sweet potatoes in a blender and then added them back in to thicken the chili.)
monday: BBQ salmon (sprinkled with salt/pepper and broiled for ~9 minutes, then topped with a BBQ sauce + lime juice + honey mixture and baked at 400F for 6 minutes)
served with a mango-avocado salsa (mango, avocado, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, salt/pepper) + greek yogurt spicy chipotle sauce (I used 2% greek yogurt, added 1/4 tsp cumin and only 1 tsp sriracha) + brown rice + corn tortilla chips
Served with a salad of sorts: roasted brussels sprouts tossed with homemade cornbread croutons (leftover cornbread), toasted walnuts and goat cheese. Drizzled in a dressing made from red wine vinegar + olive oil + dijon mustard + dried oregano + salt + pepper
wednesday: cauliflower pizza crust filled with mozzarella + tomato sauce + basil. Andrew couldn’t get over that it actually tasted like pizza. I’m posting the recipe to the blog soon!
Served with a salad with avocado, grapes and more of those homemade cornbread croutons.
thursday: my stomach was hurting and I didn’t feel like cooking. So we went out for something simple…sandwiches from Antone’s. Turkey, Swiss & Spicy Pickles…minus the mayo, plus BBQ chips.
friday: homemade burrito bowls. Cilantro-brown rice, red bell pepper-tomato salsa, chicken, black beans, avocados and a sprinkle of goat cheese & mozzarella cheese.
saturday: pizza from Papa Murphy’s. We got the deLite pizza. Half Meat and half Chicken Bacon Artichoke. Yum.
Sweet Potato & Blue Cheese Frittata. Recipe coming to the blog soon!
Lunch out with my parents at Mission Burrito. I had been wanting to try Mission Burrito for quite some time. Unfortunately, I wasn’t that impressed. Interesting story: Mission Burrito lost a lawsuit with Mission Tortilla so now they’re having to change their name.
Chocolatey-Almond Breakfast Smoothie: 1 banana + 4 ice cubes + 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder + 1 tablespoon almond butter + 1 pitted date + 1-2 handfuls kale + 1 cup 2% milk
Served with 1/2 a breakfast bake.
Another breakfast favorite from this week was…eggs + greek yogurt with blueberries, bananas, almond butter + cinnamon raisin toast.
