Last week was a bad week for cooking and following the meal plan. I came down with a terrible cold on Wednesday and we ended up eating leftovers and Lipton’s Chicken noodle soup for the rest of the week…I hate being sick.
But I am now feeling better and itching to cook. I know that some of you out there hate cooking, but I love it. I’ve even been searching Pinterest for something interesting to bake today to satisfy my cooking craving, so you may see another post sooner than normal.
Here is the meal plan for the week. Because we missed a lot of meals last week, there are a few repeats.
|Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Vegetables||Quinoa Black Bean Casserole||Roasted Red Pepper and Cauliflower soup||Honey Sesame crockpot chicken||Frozen Pizza|
- Minced garlic
- Jalapeño peppers
- Black beans
- Vegetable stock
- Cooked quinoa
- Cayenne pepper
- Chili powder
- 4 bell peppers (whatever color you like)
- Mexican shredded cheese
- Pork Tenderloin
- Apples, potatoes, sweet potatoes and red onion
- Goat’s cheese
- 4 red peppers
- 1 head of cauliflower
- Olive oil
- Red pepper flakes
- Stir fry vegetables
- 2 pounds chicken thighs or breasts
- Soy sauce
- Sesame seeds
- Green onions
I’m making this one again, but this time I am going to use a tenderloin and, like I said last week, the beautiful rosemary salt my friend Teresa gave me for Christmas. Yummy…
Missed this one last week too, so we will give it a whirl this week. Christy, I promise I’ll let you know how this turns out. Hiding quinoa from the family can be a hard task…
I love soup. Doesn’t this just look amazing? I can’t wait to try this recipe. I bought peppercorn crusted goat’s cheese for this soup which I think will be the perfect topper. I’ll have to get some good crusty bread to dip in as well.
My crockpot has been neglected for the last few weeks so I thought I would try to find a recipe to use it. This has been pinned to my recipe board on Pinterest for a long time, but I have never gotten around to making it. Hope it tastes as good as it looks.
**Bonus Recipe of the Week**
In an attempt to eat a more healthy, filling, fiber filled breakfast I am going to try making oatmeal in my slow cooker. I found this recipe and, because I absolutely love anything pumpkin, I thought I would give it a try. If it turns out, I think this is something I will make regularly. Low in calories, but should keep me full (at least until recess right?) and be a good source of fiber so I am happy.
