Menu Monday

Thank you for all your comments on last week's Menu Monday, BLs was being a poop and wouldn't let me comment back on the two days I tried. 

And BLs is still being a poop. SIIIIGH. Second week in a row that a scheduled post didn't post. Hopefully this maintenance has taken care of it and it would be awesome to get notifications for comments. 


Favorite Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey



This one was so good, y'all. The seasoning/flavor was great, hoisin and chili garlic. I put it on top of white rice and it was a pretty easy quick meal that seemed fancy and was tasty. Probably a decent amount of salt though because of the soy sauce and hoisin but turkey meat to make you feel more healthy! Definitely a recipe I'm going to keep around.



Shrimp Fried Quinoa




 This one has all the markings of being one I really liked, but I didn't. The bf really enjoyed it but the taste just wasn't there for me. It suggested frozen vegetables and I'm wondering if that was what put me off, more sodium and all. I think it would work better as a side dish, it was supposed to be my appetizer pick for the week but it made a good amount so we just ate it as a meal. Sometimes less really is more, I guess. 



Chicken Avocado Burrito




First off, yes, I did almost forget to take a picture of this one, lol. You can also probably guess by the name of the recipe, that you wouldn't need a recipe to make these. Super simple but oh so good. Chicken, avocado and some salsa on top for me.



Biscuits and Gravy with Sausage and Egg breakfast casserole




Why yes, I almost forgot to take a picture again. I LOVE this one. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. It's my day after New Year's Eve brunch meal because it is so simple to make, again, I use turkey sausage, and is a hungover person's dream. If you love brinner (breakfast at dinner time) you'll love it too. I like to put some sriracha on top for a bit of a kick but yeah, you won't be disappointed in this one. Easy to make and a dream to eat. 



Chocolate Hand Pies




I really couldn't care less about Valentine's Day but I like to have themed dessert months so Feb is full of pink, red, and heart things. I think I didn't roll the dough thin enough and I'm more of a cake person, but the pie crust was a bit chalky. If I made these again, I would sprinkle the sugar on top like was suggested. The ganache was very rich but worked with the less so pie. These took a while to make and were a bit meh for me. Again though, I'm not a big pie crust person. Strangely, I thought these tasted better three days after I made them. Probably wouldn't make them again though, taste not worth the effort. 


Any fun or romantic foods to show for the week?

Menu Monday

Ravioli with Sauteed Asparagus and Walnuts



I loved this one. It was super easy to make and  maybe around a half hour. I halved the butter and added more lemon juice. More filling than I thought it would be and had a great flavor. I paired with red wine and felt like a fancy gal.



General Tso's Chickpeas



If wanting to have a meatless Monday, this would be an excellent pick. The sauce was great, I don't like things very saucy and if you're like me you'd want to be careful with how much you add because broccoli soaks up sauce like crazy. Probably only around a half hour to make and super good. Felt like a healthy gal with this one :)



Frosted Lemon Sour Cream Sugar Cookies




I would add some yellow food coloring to the cookie because as you can see, when I added it to the frosting (maybe too much?) it popped almost too much making the cookie look pale in not the most appetizing way. I probably doubled the lemon juice (from fresh lemons and bottle) for the frosting because I love tart things. The cookie consistency was a little different, more cake like I guess I would say. The recipe makes a crap ton, I would definitely cut it in half next time. Took maybe an hour to make. I refrigerated half and left half out. The frosting was better on the fridge one but the cookie part was better left out as it was softer. Would make a good little cookie plate for an Easter dinner. Felt like a tarty gal while eating these ;)



Baked Spaghetti & Meatballs


Italian Meatballs





This one took more effort and time, probably close to 2 hours all together. If you just bought frozen meatballs instead of homemade, definitely save you on time. The homemade meatball recipe though was really good but did have a decent amount of Parmesan added. Since the spaghetti recipe called for Parmesan too, I halved both of them. Very filling and good but not sure worth the time and effort of putting everything together. Felt liked a tired gal after making.



Tater Tot Enchilada Bake




Tired from making my own meatballs, I bought frozen tater tots instead of homemaking. Still good because even a meh tater tot is a good one. I let it bake a little longer so the tater tots would get crispier. I think this took around 40 mins and was worth it. Great on a cold day and a good comfort food. Yummy. Felt like a comforted gal after eating. 



What culinary adventures did you all go on this week?

Clean Eating
Clean Eating: 365 Days of Clean Eating Recipes (Clean Eating, Clean Eating Cookbook, Clean Eating Recipes, Clean Eating Diet, Healthy Recipes, For Living Wellness and Weigh loss, Eat Clean Diet Book - Emma Katie

My kids were thinking about a bake-off that usually happens in March of a year at a local library. This year was canceled due to babies due dates and not enough people to help work the event. That is okay. I know that it will happen again next year. 


So we had started going through books that I had for recipes that involved baking and I found some good ones in the book and marked them for later trial and error. There were many things in the book that I know that I would not make as well. But that is okay as the book did have about 365 different recipes to make and try.

Menu Monday

Finally feeling caught up after the rush of the new year and starting to feel better after being sick for twoish weeks, Menu Monday is back. I hope you all didn't starve ;)


Garlic Ginger Glazed Salmon


I love salmon and it's versatility, the many flavors and seasoning you can mix with it. It's also quick and easy to make. This wasn't my favorite one, the taste not as strong as I like but still good for a weeknight meal. I didn't keep the recipe but probably only took a half hour to make (w/out counting defrosting salmon) and I pan fried them, super easy.


No-Bake Avalanche Cookies


Y'all, these may look tame and innocent but holy mother of god these are f*cking amazing. They take like 10 minutes to make, with maybe an hour in the fridge to harden up a bit. But, zooomygod, prepare yourselves to gorge. A+++++ Seriously, make these. MAKE THESE NOW


Skinny Shrimp Alfredo Pasta Bake


Probably took around 40ish minutes, another easy one. Good, warmed up well the next day. I would say a little more energy to make simply because there are a lot of moving parts. I wanted everything to be done all together, so I started the pasta and alfredo while the shrimp defrosted and things got a bit busy. Not terribly wowing but still really good nonetheless. 


Chipotle-Cheddar Broiled Avocado Halves

Obviously, very simple to make and only around 10mins to make. I made them as a side dish but they would work as a snack. I don't know, pretty meh for me but the bf really liked them. If looking for a light lunch or nighttime snack, wouldn't go wrong.


BBQ Turkey and Greek Yogurt 'slaw burgers

I didn't actually make these, the bf did, because I was blowing my nose and hacking like a psycho but, I'm going to say it was easy, because, yeah, I'm not sure it could have happened otherwise. I could barely taste but I think it tasted good, lol. 


Make any incredible tasting meals, snacks, or desserts while I was sick?

Choosing Conscious Living Celebrating your Uniqueness Mindfulness as a Life-Style

Choosing mindfulness as a life-style is a difficult task that requires a strong commitment to one's Higher Self. Many small "ego-s" will figth it, with many small excuses. The exercise we wish to share with all that would like to do Mindfulness Training and choose mindfulness as a life-style is to start the individual spiritual diary with a support group exercise.
