Flank Steak with Cilantro Almond Pesto

Week starting May 1, 2016

NEWS: We bought a grill with the weather the way it is lately. Looking forward to finding new dishes to use it with.

Sunday

Jerk chicken sweet potato hash with mango habanero sauce and poached eggs. Watched this on Brunch at Bobby’s (Bobby Flay) and had to make it. So damn good. Will use whole habanero in sauce next time instead of just half. Also, may used a little less vinegar.

Monday

Fajita lettuce wraps. Used stew meat (on sale) and cooked longer to tenderize it. Veggies were delicious.

Tuesday

Baked cabbage casserole (go-to recipe) Way to use up leftover cabbage from slaw. Cooked the pork Sunday as it was expiring since we didn’t use it last week. Will prepare Tuesday. Shared some leftovers with a co-worker. He loved it. Healthy and homey.

Flank steak with cilantro almond sauce. Flank steak is a bit pricier but worth it. Don’t try to sub it something different. The sauce was perfect.

Thursday

Zucchini noodles with chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, and shrimp

Friday

Balsamic chicken thighs with asparagus Go-to recipe.

Saturday

Breakfast: Easy Breakfast Casserole. Used two sweet potatoes and a bit more spinach and sausage. So good. It’s the healthy version of the one your mom used to make with white bread, Jimmy Dean and cheese.
