Sunday: Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic, light and tangy slaw, chickpea flour quickbread, peas, fried potatoes
We had this last night, and I am pretty sure I am oozing a garlic scent today. I actually put a lot more than 40 cloves of garlic in my baking dish, and I may have eaten 40 cloves myself. So delicious!
Monday: Rosti with Bacon and Scallions, sauteed kale, blueberry smoothies
I am not actually a big bacon fan. I know, everyone thinks I am strange, but it seems too greasy to me. I am starting to come around a bit, if it is prepared right, and this doesnt have a huge amount of bacon. The kids are ecstatic at the prospect of me cooking bacon for them.
Tuesday: Red beans and rice, broccoli
An old favorite.
Wednesday: Rosemary Chicken with White Beans, spinach salad
One of the first non-plain foods the girl really enjoyed–and this is within the last year. We have had a tense childhood with that girl, because I have met very few plain foods I like, but she is all about plain foods, and has been vocally so since toddler-hood. Thank goodness she is starting to come around to more complex flavors.
Thursday: Red lentil Thai Chili, cornbread
I am having a vegetarian friend over for dinner, and we love curry. This take on chili might be too much for the girl, but I am hoping she will like it. I know that Andrea and I will love it, though, and at least there is cornbread, so the girl won’t go hungry!
What are you having this week?
