Week starting May 9, 2016


Slow Cooker Tomatillo Pork Chili Verde. Prepared and cooked on Sunday. Could have used a little less lime juice.


Summer Squash Meatball Casserole. Super quick and easy to put together & throw in the oven, which made it taste even better.  Food processor shredding attachment is my new fav. Cooked in Dutch oven instead of skillet. Cheap ingredients.



Steaks and Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Lime & Cilantro. Didn’t want to mess with grilling the sweet potatoes. Boiled them and then mashed them (with skin on) with 2 tbsp of butter, lime zest and cilantro. Quite good.


Spaghetti Squash Noodle Bowl with OMG Sauce. Well, this sauce really is outstanding. Used tahini instead of sunbutter. Cooked spaghetti squash 10 mins longer than it lists.




Mexican Breakfast Casserole. We’ve been making breakfast casseroles every Saturday morning. It’s served as Saturday breakfast for two, a snack later in the day and Sunday breakfast for two. Used two sweet potatoes and two jalapenos. This was hearty.


Lunch: Romaine lettuce-wrapped burgers with red onion, cilantro, jalapenos and some hot mustard. Seasoned burgers with a yummy new spice, Mt. Elbert All Purpose Seasoning from Savory Spice.

Dinner: Easy Grilled Chicken with a spinach salad (chopped spinach, sliced radishes, diced tomato, red onion, soynuts, chopped broccoli, diced jalapeno). Marinated the chicken for five hours.
