Meal updates from last week:
The shredded beef tacos did not turn out like I had imagined. I microwaved the tortillas as instructed, but they all tore as soon as I rolled them up. The dish ended up looking really messy. The meatballs in the turkey soup were great, but the broth was very bland. I do not think that I will make this recipe again. The cranberry protein balls were a huge hit! The flavour and texture of these ones were very different from the peanut butter based ones. I will be making these again.
Love week, we will be eating in Monday-Thursday which includes Valentine’s Day. Friday we will be eating out, and we do not have plans for Saturday. The weather is supposed to be lovely so I will be firing up the bbq for two of my meals.
- Lasagne soup from @farmgirlsdabble I will serve this with a caesar salad (I have made this soup many times and it is a huge hit. I omit the ricotta when serving to my kids).
- Valentine’s Day menu:
Lobster tails with artichoke risotto from @travelcooktell and a green veggie on the side: asparagus, green beans or a salad. For dessert I will be making the no-bake cheesecake that I posted last week in Sweet Treats.
- Greek turkey burgers with tzatziki from @foodiecrush (I will serve this with a greek salad)
- Grilled Hawaiian chicken teriyaki bowls from tastesbetterfromscratch.com (I have made this bowl before, and the flavours are amazing together! I will be making steamed rice for the bowl base, not the coconut rice that the recipe calls for).
For breakfast this week I will be trying out a new recipe for oatmeal breakfast bites. For snack I will be going back to the protein balls from @thelemonbowl they have been the biggest hit in our house. This week I will be looking for recipes for protein balls that are lunchbox safe.
