Meal updates from last week:
We really enjoyed the Greek chicken thighs with Greek salad, hummus and pitas, but our most favourite meal from last week was the pad Thai, it was outstanding! I purchased the shrimp from the Calgary Farmer’s Market, they were huge and added so much to the dish. I didn’t have a chance to make the Mediterranean linguine, I will let you know when I try it out. This weekend we ordered food from Cactus Club and Mercato Mission, the food from Mercato was outstanding! We ordered a simple pasta with tomato sauce, grilled pork ribs and sautéed green beans with shallots. I would order from them again soon, and they also do pizza takeout.
This week we will be eating at home Sunday to Thursday, we will probably do takeout or BBQ on the weekend. The weather is supposed to be really nice this week, so I am going to try and use the grill a lot. Tonight we had elk burgers, coleslaw, baked beans and corn on the cob.
- Chicken gyros salad from @smittenkitchen this salad sounds delicious, and as always my kids will eat all the components minus the lettuce.
- Minestrone with kale and turkey sausage from @foodnetwork I have made this soup many times before, and it has been gobbled up by all! When I use sausage in any recipe I always buy Spolumbos sausages.
- Spring roll bowls with grilled chicken from @littlebrokenblog you know that I love a one bowl meal!
- Chicken caesar burgers from @iowagirleats I haven’t made these in a long time, they are so easy and packed with flavour. I will serve tater tots and a green salad on the side.
Last week I made a batch of good morning protein cookies from @weelicious they were really good, and a great snack to have on hand. I ate one smeared with peanut butter for breakfast on the weekend. I have a few spotted bananas that need to be used, so I think that I will try to make some muffins. One of my favourite banana muffin recipes is from @cookieandkate they are a one bowl recipe and you can choose to add chocolate chips or blueberries. Shop safely with Dinner List 130
