Meal updates from last week:
We enjoyed all of the meals from last week, but the butter salmon bowls were by far our favourite. Covering the salmon with the butter and then baking it, makes for a tender and juicy fish. We also really enjoyed the pork meatballs with Chinese noodles. This morning my son asked for waffles so I made a batch of these banana bread waffles using only whole-wheat flour. They turned out very well and made enough to have leftovers for breakfast tomorrow.
This week we will be eating at home Sunday-Wednesday. We are going out on Thursday night as a family and then I am heading out with friends on Friday. The weather this week is supposed to be great, and I can guarantee that we will be grilling. Friday there may be sausages and hotdogs on the menu.
- Pork tonkatsu bowls from @seasonsandsuppers we ate this tonight and it was amazing! The pork turned out crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The sauce was a little sweet, salty and spicy. The kids tried the sauce but had theirs without. I will make this again very soon.
- Rainbow chicken salad with almond honey mustard dressing from @pichofyum as I have stated in the past my kids don’t like lettuce, but I know that they will like all of the components of the salad. I might add a little buttered bread on the side for the kids. I won’t be cooking my chicken in a frying pan but instead on the grill.
- Loaded nacho sliders from @cookingforkeeps who wouldn’t want to eat a burger with queso? This queso is made from jalapeño jack cheese so I would imagine that it is going to be spicy, I may leave the sauce off the kids burgers. We will eat this with some fries and raw veggies.
- Chopped salad with shrimp blue cheese and bacon from @howsweeteats via @skinnytaste this recipe comes from Jessica’s new cookbook The Pretty Dish. As of late my kids have loved shrimp so I can’t see why they wouldn’t love this recipe. I made this citrus dressing to go on top as the recipe only added a drizzle of olive oil.
I have my eyes on this fish taco bowl that I can see having sometime very soon. Another recipe that I have been thinking about trying is for Greek lamb meatballs with avocado goddess sauce. I am not a lover of lamb so I am not sure if I would use it or substitute another ground meat. You grocery list is ready and waiting Dinner List 52
