It was a good cooking week, getting back into the groove after a wonderful week of vacation and eating out. The most surprising success was the Cabbage, Red Pepper, & Zucchini Palya (Dry Curry), which was both tasty and healthy.
The Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins were the big hit of the week with my boys. The muffins froze well and were easily reheated in the microwave or toasted from frozen.
Finally, I posted my favorite recipe for a casserole-type macaroni & cheese. I tried freezing individual portions of the leftovers for the first time and was very pleased with the way they defrosted. It’s nice to have another dish that can be prepared ahead and stockpiled in the freezer.
My main motivation in cooking lately is to get through our farm share each week. So far, so good! And I was only momentarily waylaid by the critters in my cabbage.
Monday: Veggie omelets (tomato, onion, & broccoli rabe), garden salad, bagels
Tuesday: Roasted chicken legs & thighs, carrot Jenga, rolls
Wednesday: Women’s dinner out; yogurt or mac & cheese for the boys
Thursday: Chicken Castillo in my crock pot (plus enough to freeze), farm share veggies, whole wheat spaghetti
Friday: Boys at a sleepover; J. & I out to eat?
Sunday: Take out
