And, with it getting dark so early these days, photographing dinner doesn't happen most days, so the menu plans were a set of guidelines that sometimes were followed, but not always. At any rate, this week, I have done much better about preparing meals that I bought ingredients for, and using up the vegetables in the fridge.
Here are a few things we ate this week:
Kale Almond Pesto and Cheese Pizza - This was a great way to use up Kale and Fox ate a ton of it.
Salmon w/ Brown Butter Dressing and Rice - We had this for Fox's birthday (he has been a big fish fan, lately), and it was delicious. I think next time I will double the sauce.
Black Bean Soup - I know this is on here again, but it is a family favorite. It shows up at least once a month.
Lemon Parmesan Cod - This was a big disappointment. I thought it was going to be great, and it was very medium. If you are looking for a better fish recipe, see the above salmon recipe, or this super easy halibut recipe that knocked the socks off of all of us, it was so good.
Butternut Squash Soup - This was a new one for me. I actually used half in half instead of coconut milk, but it still was pretty tasty. A little too spicy for Fox, but I liked it.
Sweet Potato Peanut Stew - This is easy, I almost always have the ingredients for it, and it is a crowd pleaser. So tasty, and nice and filling.
I also made these Saturday night pancakes from Janssen's blog. They are SOOOO good!
