I'm sick of noodles and typical American food. I want curry, chickpea crepes, white bean and kale soup, and hot pot! As my son would yell, "IT'S NOT FAIR!!" I think I need to start a new night...Mama-gets-to-experiment-night.
But, until that night is established, I'm cooking some boring stuff that I hope my kids will eat.
Spaghetti & Meatballs
I use the modifications from Yoshiyum and serve on whole wheat spaghetti.
Grilled Cheese and Thai Butternut Squash Soup (from freezer)
I used American Multi Grain sliced bread from New French Bakery - my new favorite bread. These were some tasty sandwiches.
Quesadillas and Fruit
I made tortillas with my MOMS Club this week and will stuff them with a mix of pepper jack and cheddar. Maybe some sauteed mushrooms, too. We'll be eating kiwi because I somehow ordered 4 lbs of it. We like kiwi, but 4 lbs is a lot!
Lentils and Sausages (floater meal from last week)
We have these fancy lentils from Paris to use.
Homemade Pizza and Buffalo Cauliflower
Have you tried Buffalo Cauliflower? So, so, so good!
Fried Rice and Easy Eggrolls
The eggroll recipe is from one of my favorite books, Simple Suppers from Moosewood Restaurant.
Bean & Rice (think Chipotle Burrito Bowl)
This is our standard "cheap eat". We top with whatever we have on hand.
Pulled Pork on Homemade Buns, Corn & Potatoes
I made some homemade burger buns a few weeks ago and have some leftovers in the fridge. I also scored a "manager's special" pork roast.
I'm on the hunt for a go-to Chili recipe. This one is super simple but will it be tasty enough?
Or this might become Nachos. Same ingredients, different focus. Will it be a lettuce or tortilla chip kind of day?
With who knows what on top. That's how I roll.
Dessert Nights: Ice cream, Lemon Bars (did you see how many lemons I have?!)
What are YOU cooking this week?
