What’s Cookin’ Week of June 2 (My Birthday!)
Happy 41st Birthday to Me! I officially enter into the 40’s decade on Monday, June 2nd when I turn 41! Yikes. But, I am still feeling young at heart which I think is due to the fact that my kids are still young and I always have to be current on the latest and greatest in music to make sure my cycle classes are rockin’! 🙂
Last week’s menu winner was the Veggie Tofu Stir Fry. I would not change a thing except I would make a double recipe so that we had more leftover!! I thought the sauce was a nice mix between salt and sweet but not too salty which is my most common issue with Asian recipes. I actually mixed some chicken in this because I had extras so figured I would throw it in. It worked fine.
This week, I am featuring cheese grits — something my kids have never had. I have a sneaky suspicion that we will have some texture issues from my oldest but it is worth a try.
Have a great week!!
Birthday Meal Monday: Baked Salmon with my favorite Rub with Love seafood seasoning, steamed broccoli, and couscous mixed with peas and any veggies I find, parmesan cheese, and olive oil. SUPER EASY…SUPER YUMMY!
Meal #2: Simple pan fried chicken breasts (sauteed with olive oil), Lightened Cheddar Grits Casserole (scroll to bottom of blog post for recipe), and spinach sauteed with garlic and olive oil.
Meal #3: Chicken Parmesan in Parmesan Cream Sauce served over whole wheat ribbon noodles and a large side salad. This is not the most healthy recipes so focus on a larger serving of the veggies!
“I never got to this last week” Meal #4:
Made Up Super Nachos…I have a bag of nachos that are burning a hole in my pantry so they will be eaten this week. This is a made up recipe so we will see what happens….
1 bag of nachos
1 jar of salsa (also burning a hole in my pantry)
1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed (no sodium kind)
1 cup of mexican blend of cheeses
In a pan, cook beef/chicken until browned. Add salsa and beans and heat for a few minutes. Place nachos on cookie sheet, pour beef/salsa mixture on top, sprinkle with cheese and place in oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Watch the dish so you do not burn the cheese. Serve with greek yogurt and guacamole.
I will serve this with a side salad as well.
Bonus Recipe: Make Ahead Freezer Smoothie Recipe – be prepared so you have more incentive to make a healthy smoothie!!
