It was so nice to have a week of yummy meals after firing some recipes last week. To find the recipes that we really liked follow my Pinterest page (www.pinterest.com/radishesarepink). I have one page, Favorite Healthy Recipes, for recipes that I think fit into the healthy category and one page, Favorite Sinful Recipes, for recipes I think are not the healthiest but that we can fit into a healthy diet here and there. I am a firm believer that there is room for a few bites of anything in a healthy diet…but maybe not a whole serving on a daily basis.
Sunday: Kansas City style ribs with pasta salad and salad. This was my first foray into making ribs and it was a success! The ribs were super tender and flavorful. Ryan loved the “bid chitten wing” (he has some trouble with “g” and “ck” sounds sometimes). Both kids loved the pasta salad that hubby bubby whipped together and we just had a simple side salad to go with it.
Monday: Sloppy Lasagna Joes, Romaine salad with Parmesan Vinaigrette. I just didn’t feel like using a recipe today so I used the ground beef that would have been for the lasagna joes to make some meat sauce that we had with penne. This is definitely not one of hubby bubby’s faves so we still had the Romaine Salad with the Parmesan Vinaigrette. It was delish! Ryan did his “happy eating dance”! 🙂
Tuesday: Crispy Chicken with Shallots and Lemony Bean Salad. This one required some planning ahead which I surprisingly did not forget about! Hannah and I prepped the chicken while Ryan napped. The chicken was moist (from the dry brine, I’m sure) and yummy, but the bean salad was just okay. Hannah said I should have made the beans with radishes and she was right!
Thursday: Grapefruit-and-sugar-rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Chickpea, Fennel and Citrus salad and Seeds of Change whole grains. These were really good and everyone liked them. Ryan even ate the fennel since I told him it was a special lettuce (that little white lie isn’t so bad, right?!).
Friday: Thai shrimp cakes with Thai celery salad with peanuts. Leftovers. Hubby bubby had a fancy work function come up last minute that he had to go to so the kiddos and I had leftovers.
Saturday: Stuffed acorn squash with sausage, barley and goat cheese. Thai shrimp cakes with Thai celery salad with peanuts. Hubby bubby made these and they were yummy! I definitely ate more than my share of the celery, I just couldn’t get enough! The shrimp cakes were a hit with everyone, but Ryan didn’t eat too much since he thought it was a little spicy.
Did your week go as planned? Did you have anything extra yummy this week? Do you eat your pork pink with the new food safety guidelines on cooking temps from the USDA?
Hope you had a great week! Thanks for reading!
