My boo is still off on his motorcycle adventure, so I’m making some of my fave meals again while it’s just me eating.
Here’s what I’m making!
Monday– Pumpkin gnocchi w/ spinach in a sage-cream sauce
Gnocchi is one of my favorite dishes. I found a package of pumpkin gnocchi at a local market & I’ve very excited to give it a try. I’ll toss the gnocchi in a sauce like this alfredo, adding a bit of dried sage & spinach.
Tuesday– Chicken burrito w/ rice & beans
Cut bone-less, skin-less chicken breasts into bite-sized strips & season with taco seasoning (recipe below). Then fry up the chicken in a little olive oil over medium-high heat until cooked through. Wrap a flour tortilla in a damp paper towel & microwave for 30 seconds to warm up. Load up your tortilla with your burrito fillings of choice, (I like black beans, corn, sour cream, & guacamole). Wrap up your burrito & serve with rice & beans.
Combine the following to make the taco seasoning:
- 1 tbs chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
Wednesday– Greek salad w/ chicken
My market has a fantastic olive bar, so I like to pick up a few different olives every few weeks for nibbling. They’re also a great inspiration for this salad & chicken.
Thursday– Swedish meatballs w/ fries & salad
One word: IKEA. These meatballs claim to be just as delish. I can’t wait to dip some fries in that creamy gravy!
Friday– Lemon-dijon chicken thighs w/ zucchini & rice
Like I said last week, I adore roasted bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. This recipe is similar to how I make it, except I’ll cook my thighs in the oven. I sauté small pieces of zucchini in olive oil & toss with the rice to serve.
Saturday– Eat Out
Sunday– Salmon w/ spinach & mash
Thanks to my friend Bekah’s boo’s fishing addiction, I’ll be simply pan-frying some fresh Alaskan red salmon.
Weekly Dessert– Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Taking another helping hand from Pillsbury this week.
