Ground Turkey Brussels Sprouts Skillet. Big fan of shredded Brussels sprouts. Used more than recipe. Used outer leaves to make Brussels sprouts chips (toss with bit or olive oil and bake at 350 for 10ish mins flipping at 5-min mark).
Roast Chicken and Paleo Honey Roasted Carrots. The chicken is a Pioneer Woman recipe, so there’s butter. However, it doesn’t have the other Southern staples (cheese, cream of whatever, etc.), so you’re fine. It was incredible, super easy and cheap! Including the carrots, this meal cost under $7. It fed two adults dinner and lunch the next day.
Pork Roast with Dijon Glaze with roasted butternut squash. Feeling lazy, used precut butternut squash from Trader Joe’s. It was a huge roast, so repurposed it for breakfast with eggs and jalapenos. Smells great when cooking.
Savory Sriracha Oatmeal. Didn’t want to go out or cook for a long time and found this recipe. Omitted cashews. Topped with parsley from my porch. Yum. Easy.
Baingan ka Bharta (Indian Eggplant). Use 3 eggplants instead of 2 and roasted for 30 minutes (didn’t broil after). Sub coconut oil for avocado oil; top with a fried egg and cilantro. One of my absolute favorite dishes. Ridiculous.
