I’m pretty sure I blinked and seven weeks passed! Shamefully, I did very little cooking in that time, and most of the meals I did make were ones I’ve already made. Here are the few exceptions:
- Eggplant parmesan pasta, served with green beans: This was amazing. Made two tweaks: used whole wheat pasta since I can’t tell the difference in baked dishes, and made my own pasta sauce using the marinara recipe from the cheese-stuffed turkey meatballs I made (find sauce recipe here– makes 28oz, I just used it all).
- Crockpot salsa chicken: Put 1 lb. chicken, 3 tbsp. taco seasoning (this is the recipe I use), and 16 oz. salsa in a Crockpot on low for 8 hours.
- Cinnamon bun smoothie. So simple, but so good.
- Spaghetti squash enchilada bowls: These were really good but I felt like it needed a little something extra. I brought it for lunch at work the next day and added a few things from the taco bar and that made it tastier. Next time I think it needs some meat and maybe beans.
Back on the wagon this week. One of my 2016 goals is to make 52 new dinner recipes. See you next Sunday!
