As you may know, if you know me, I spend a lot of the time thinking about/talking about/making food. The other day I was talking with my sister-in-law about food and menu planning and grocery shopping and juicing documentaries (what else?) and she was asking if I ever just open a frozen bag of something for dinner when low on time. I said I do, sometimes, but usually if I’m not cooking at home, we’re getting food from somewhere else and/or trying to figure out where we can get a decent meal at 9:57PM. (That’s besides the point though.)
After I said that, she mentioned something about how she’d be curious to find out what I do actually cook at home because she’s always looking for more ideas to incorporate into their menu, which got me thinking…
It could be cool to do a regular feature of what was (or is) on our menu for the week. I know I always find it interesting to hear what other people are making/eating (I’m weird) so documenting our culinary adventures could be helpful, kind of for my reference as much as yours, because then I can go back and ruminate on the week that we had crab cakes and steak salad and roasted veggie wraps (not in the same meal) (I’ve never once made a steak salad but it’s on my list so aha).
That being said, here’s what we ate this past week:
Coconut Quinoa and Kale Salad, grilled chicken breast
Grilled Kale Salad with Ricotta and Peaches, grilled chicken breast
Corn Cilantro Cakes with Roasted Zucchini salsa, roasted green beans with mushrooms and balsamic
We did eat more than three meals this week, but this is all I cooked at home. Most of the other meals included ribs. (for real, and that’s kind of weird). My hands smell like barbeque sauce. And with that, I bid you adieu until next time. Hope you enjoyed this episode of WWE. haha.
