family meal: week 66
Spicy Seafood & Udon Stir Fry. Yummy! I made a batch with soba noodles too because Ben prefers the buckwheat, and while I do like buckwheat, I like the udon better with this. A noodle stir-fry is a good way to throw in lots of vegetables into a meal.
Roasted Cauliflower Steaks With Lemon Relish. This. Is. So. Good!!! Make it. I made two batches, one doubling up the red pepper and one without it (for the kids). Also, I only put 1 tablespoon of oil in the relish, not the 2 the recipe calls for, and it was fine with less oil. We didn’t even use a Meyer lemon, but a couple regular grocery store ones, and our first lemon from our lemon tree. Thus, I think using any lemon would suffice. Really though, make this, it’s super delicious!
Week of 3/17 – 3/21
Monday: Crunchy Turkey Burgers
Tuesday: Sweet Sticky Baked Chicken (or maybe Korean Fried Chicken)
Thursday: Black Bean and Quinoa Bowl
Friday: Sushi/pizza night
I’ve mentioned this already, but I really enjoy cooking. I’m no pro at all, but I’ve learned so much since I started meal planning. This is after 66 (not consecutive) weeks of planning our dinners and trying out new recipes. I definitely do miss Ben’s cooking though, he is such a natural! I also love I can go to our backyard and grab some herbs for our meal. It makes cooking feel extra fancy!
