family meals: week 47

August 8, 2013


meatloafTurkey Meatloaf and Mashed Cauliflower. It’s not a particularly good looking meal, but it’s yummy. I made 3 pans full for our Tuesday Dinner Club and I think most liked it. If they didn’t, they were gracious guests and pretended they liked it! The mashed “potatoes” did make them a little nervous because they were all used to the super buttery kind with lots of potatoes, so they were thinking I was giving them soy potatoes or something. HA! They ate that too, so mashed cauliflower can’t be that bad, right?!

Week of ┬á8/12 – 8/16

Monday: Avocado Pasta
Tuesday: Chicken Tagine (if Ben gets me a crock pot in time!)
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Seafood Medley Pasta
Friday: Pizza/sushi night

Ben’s finally looking into getting me a crock pot! Yay! I’ve been telling him for the longest time that I wanted one, but there weren’t any with particularly good reviews or ratings when he looked awhile back, but I think this time around he might have found a couple. I can’t wait to try it out! I loved the suggestions some of you gave last week and if you have a particularly good recipe to cook in a crock pot, just email me directly because I really would love to try it! Thanks friends!

    Please post what crock pot you end up getting and if you like it — we are looking for one too.
    Thanks!

  • i’ve had the kitchen aid 7 quart crockpot for going on 6 years now. it’s treated me really well & i just love it. i’m actually getting ready to throw on a batch of red beans in it overnight.

    I have had my crockpot for four years now and use it once a week. I find that having something yummy (and yummy smelling) already cooking away helps minimize the nights that I give in to last minute eating out. I have a couple of favorites that I will send your way!

    P.S. I made your kimchi fried rice from way back last week and it has become an instant favorite! Come to think of it, I’m craving it right now. Thanks for sharing!
