Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing Mothers!
Meal updates from last week:
The chicken stir fry was amazing! So much flavour and very easy to make. We also loved the BBQ chicken salad. As I posted on Instagram (@three_plates_full) I substituted brown rice for the quinoa, pinto beans for black and added avocado on top. We also ate beef tacos on Saturday night, I topped it with a super simple corn and avocado salsa. Grill two ears of corn and then cut the kernels off. In a bowl add the grilled corn, diced avocado (1), one diced jalapeño (if you want a milder flavour then leave out the seeds), the juice of half a lime, corse salt and two tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro. Mix carefully and add to the top of your tacos. You could also double the recipe and serve with tortilla chips for an easy Mexican appetizer.
This week we will be having sushi for Mother’s Day, and then eating at home Monday-Thursday. For the long weekend I am not sure what we have planned. One of the meals for the week will be meatless, we will see how this works with the kids?!
- Roasted veggie grain bowl from joyfulhealthyeats.com my children are not huge fans of quinoa so I am going to be making both brown rice and quinoa.
- Pineapple BBQ chicken with roasted potatoes and asparagus. I saw a short video posted where chicken was seasoned with salt and pepper and then brushed with BBQ sauce. It was baked in the oven and then topped with pineapple. I am going to bake the chicken and grill the pineapple. This brings out the flavour of the fruit. This is a similar idea to this recipe.
- Mini meatball minestrone from @cookinglight I will serve this with crusty bread. I am not going to use the chard but instead spinach.
- Pulled BBQ chicken and coleslaw sandwiches from @cookinglight we will eat this with Alexia’s waffle fries and brown beans.
For breakfast this week I’m going to make these pancake mini muffins. My kids have also been eating a lot of these.. I am undecided about my snack recipe for the week, and like last week I will post my snack on Instagram. Heading to the grocery store? Make sure to print Dinner List 13
Happy Mother’s Day and happy cooking,
