I know, I know. I’m a slacker. In my defense, last week was a monster. Between C’s heightened crankiness (I believe her two front bottom teeth are cutting through and she’s thisclose to mastering the art of crawling) and work deadlines and, well, you know, life in general, I decided to give myself a few days off from the blog. I hope you can find it in your collective heart to forgive me.
On the food front…
After three weeks of planning it but never making it, I finally made the leek fritata tonight. Finally. Why do I always remember this dish being better than it actually is? Probably because it’s incredibly easy and provides lots of protein and those are two things that should just qualify a dish as being tasty, right? I’m grasping at straws here.
The chicken wings on Sunday were a HUGE success. So much so that even I liked them and I don’t like chicken wings. So there you go. E thought they were good as well (nice and dry as is the case with proper Buffalo chicken wings, apparently), but the taste wasn’t quite right for traditional wings. We’ll probably make them again, but I think he’s on a quest now to find a recipe for “authentic” chicken wings.
In other news, you’ll all be happy to know that our furnace/AC is back in working order. Just in time for 90+ temps again!
I’m going to include links to the recipes that are available online, otherwise I’ll include links to the resource where I got the recipe. Here’s this week:
- Monday – beef stroganoff (DP), mashed potatoes (instead of noodles)
- Tuesday – grain-free chicken nuggets, pan-braised green beans (ATK)
- Wednesday – leek fritata (one of these weeks, I WILL get around to making this!), roasted beets (from the old Nourished Kitchen meal plans)
- Thursday – out
- Friday – baked cod with cream and bay leaves (ITC), roasted carrots with parsley butter
- Saturday – chicken wings, cast iron skillet grain-free pizza (never got around to making this last week)
- Sunday – egg drop soup (from the old Nourished Kitchen meal plans)
You can see my master list of recipes that are currently in rotation here, a list of places where I buy my food here, and a guide for buying kitchen equipment here. I also use Plan to Eat to keep track of recipes, make my meal plan, and generate grocery lists. It’s a fantastic little tool and I think meal planning would be a LOT more work without it!
