Wednesday

Slow Baked Chili Salmon with leftover Persian Salad. Been very pleased with flavor and simplicity of other The Endless Meal recipes. This salmon may be the best I’ve ever eaten, and that’s not hyperbole. Used it the next few days on toasted bagels with cream cheese, capers and red onion. If you don’t have a toaster, pop  bagel in the oven at 350 for 4 minutes.

Thursday

Put into marinade Wednesday night. Korean Paleo Chicken Thighs over cauliflower rice. Put into marinade night before cooking. High on Ryan’s list of favorites. Serve with wasabi finishing sauce from Savory Spice.  I doubled chicken recipe–eight thighs (one large package from Sprouts)and double the marinade.

Saturday

Pad Thai Casserole. New recipe to try. Used jalapenos because store was out of Fresno chiles. Great substitute for pad thai. Fun dish. Took some time.

Sunday

Spicy Mexican-Style Chicken Salad in corn tortillas with fresh cherry tomatoes. Well this was delicious and simple. First, cooked shredded chicken in Instant Pot (one large package of chicken breasts from Sprouts cut in half, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 salt, 1/4 cup water) on Poultry setting and added time until it read 20 minutes. Then finished chicken salad recipe; added 1/4 cayenne to sauce and used two jalapenos instead of one.

Wednesday

Chipotle Dijon Turkey Meatballs (use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream/heavy cream) wrapped in Romaine and  Mexican corn on the cob. This meal is so much better than it sounds. Added some breadcrumbs to the meatballs; had panko on hand. Did not use cheese on the corn just covered with butter and lime juice then sprinkled with chili powder and cilantro.

Grilled Swordfish and Eggplant with Honey-Thyme Vinaigrette and some grilled asparagus. It was good. Not my favorite, but good and fun to mix it up from the usual fish.
