No food snapshots this week…I’ll do better next week.
Chicken Fajitas –
Turns out my mom hasn’t put up a recipe for this. <dramatic sigh> I’ll do up a recipe post for this sometime in the next few weeks. We used the leftover peppers/onions for putting on top of hot Italian sausages (for which I forgot to buy provolone or mozzarella to melt on top).
Coconut Curry with Chicken-
We cook this (or some similar variation) pretty often. Basically it’s meat, rice, coconut milk, curry powder, fish sauce, ginger, and whatever additional ingredients are in the fridge. I used spring garlic and cashews. Also recommended: green onions, cilantro, lime, bell peppers, onion, basil.
We also had the third portion of the meatballs (as Swedish meatballs again) and I think we ended up grabbing Noodles&Co. for one of our dinners (BBQ Pork Mac&Cheese for the both of us).
And the New:
Pork Chop with Chive Butter and Balsamic Roasted Onions –
This was pretty darn yummy. I roasted up some potatoes with the meal, and did one onion and one shallot (with some fig balsamic).
Doro Wat –
I picked up some Berbere from Old Town Spice Shop (who I love x infinity) so I decided I’d try this out. I cooked up some quinoa to go with it (also a first) but it really needed the injera. I also wish I had a bit more time to let the whole thing stew, but I threw it together in about an hour instead. I also chopped up my eggs. Chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs and quinoa? Insane amounts of protein.
I also cooked up steel-cut oats for the first time ever. It was pretty tasty.
This next week I’m going to try to avoid bread and pasta. I can go a week without Bunnies&Cheese, right?
