In an effort to act more like 'adults' I decided that I am now going to start planning our dinners for the entire week on Sunday, and shopping for them that day. I am excited about my new found routine, hoping that this will bring us a bit of stability with the whole 'are we eating in, or are we going out' question that seems to be asked far too often. Not to mention in an effort to be healthier and expand my kitchen repertoire.
Here it goes:
Sunday (tonight) :
Bruschetta (Danielle's recipe that I almost died over when she made it for PR finale night!)
Lemon Potatoes with Tzatziki sauce
A healthy take on Huevos Rancheros
Sauteed Zucchini and Parmesan Penne with Salad
Tapas and drinks with Ashley D. (if confirmed)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! (or TOFURKEY DAY as I will be calling it this year!)
Night out with friends
Our Speciality ~ Bean Tacos (we would love some dinner guests for this!! :)
(Need :: Corn tortillas, black beans, pinto beans and kidney beans, black olives, spinach, tomatoes, scallions, cheese, sour cream, avacados and mushrooms). Cook 1 can black beans, 1 kidney and 1 pinto with 1 can olives together for 45 mins or so, until mixture looks bound together (if cooking for 4 people....add 1 can black beans and 1 can olives for each additional 2 people). While this is cooking, chop all veggies (don't smash avacados into pulp consistency--keep in chunks or slices). Cook corn tortillas with olive oil in pan till warm and chewy, put bean and olive mixture on first and stack as many veggies as your tortilla will allow!! Mmmmm
BBQ'd Ahi Tuna that Wes' co-worker caught himself!! Or---if Wes doesn't feel like BBQing, Veggie Lasagna.
* Some of the recipes here are from Heart of Light Blog....I am not taking credit for the excitement of creating all of these...however, I will let you know how they turn out for me!
