Friday Food Round-Up!

So then there was this point where I had NO meal plan whatsoever but we still needed to eat.  To be honest, I tried to pick things where if we ended up NOT making them we weren’t going to end up throwing out a ton of food. 

And then I had a baby so that was a good thing. 

Friday – Salmon with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Steamed Broccoli 

When I plated this, I looked at it and told Marcus it looked like a weirdly nutritious meal. Basically we had some random sweet potatoes in the pantry and that is what the meal was based around.

Saturday – Chicken Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Rice and Black Beans

As we were eating dinner I realized that this was the first time we ate black beans in this house!  Which is only funny because that has been such a stalwart side dish (and occasional main course) for us.

Wednesday – Rotisserie Chicken, Fried Rice, Vegetable Blend

Shout out to my mother-in-law for bringing us a meal when we got home from the hospital. I…did my part for the team and boiled the vegetables. 

Thursday – Corn, Cheddar and Scallion Strata, Steamed Broccoli 

This egg bake is the first meal I’ve pulled out of the freezer and you guys it was so great to grab some containers, throw them in the fridge to thaw, and then heat them up for dinner. 

Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Since I had some time on Sunday, I took the chance I was given to action some baking. I was also really glad to have a bag of muffins when we came home from the hospital.

  1. Love love love that a world changing experience (baby #2!!!) cannot deter a Friday Food Round up or your desire to eat well. It’s inspiring. Count on me for Crisp & Green drop off (and company if that’s useful) whenever you’d like in these coming months. It’d be my pleasure!
