Week starting Dec. 7, 2016


Dijon Almond Crusted Tilapia with Crispy Brussels Sprouts. Used four tilapia fillets instead of two, so added a few more almonds and tinge more paprika. Used more Brussels sprouts than recipe. Paired with red pear and Kerrygold white cheddar. Super easy and great flavor.



Leftover tilapia and sprouts


Punjabi Style Chicken Soup. Easily one of my favorite winter dishes. Makes a ton.

Gobhi Mussallam (Roasted Whole Cauliflower). Fun new dish to try. Did two smaller heads of cauliflower. Forgot fresh tomatoes, so I used canned.



Pumpkin and Chorizo Soup. I love this because it is simple, easy and good. Ryan gives it a “meh” but still eats it.
