I was asking myself this yesterday. I was feeling uninspired.
I looked at my fall dinners from last year for some ideas. Nothing sounded good.
So, I just went to the store and bought the essentials. Price Chopper and Aldi. Spent $110.
Ends up I'm going to be using some of those ideas.
Time has been tight lately. Life is not bad... Just intense!
We hardly ever throw out food, but I have had to throw away some kale and other lettuce lately because we didn't eat it in time and it got stinky. Yuck. So I didn't buy salad this week because I wasn't feeling it. Also, these tacos? I made them last week with pork chops. I didn't braise or brown the pork before putting it it in the slow cooker because I am lazy. And then I had to carefully pick out the bones at the end. It was still great. I'll make them again. I threw some soy sauce (yes we eat it) and sriracha and lime juice on the shredded cabbage and it totally worked.
Here's what I have the ingredients to make this week-
lemon rasberry swirl muffins (from Juli's book)
easy pancakes (1 banana, 2 eggs, 1 T. nut butter, vanilla)*
*These two recipes are surprisingly very similar on ingredients.
rice cakes with sun butter and jam (kids)
carrots, grape tomatoes, hummus
apples, or clementines
tortilla chips with beef, cheese, sour cream, and homemade salsa (lazy route tonight)
korean beef (paleo version) and broccoli
slow cooker beef stew with cauliflower mash
homemade primal pizza, green beans
sloppy joes and roasted acorn squash
