Meal plan for 2/20-2/26
Saturday night- I went out with some girlfriends Saturday night so thankfully there were enough leftovers around the house that I didn't.cook.a.thing for Ben and the kids.
However, True Food Kitchen in Atlanta is really good!
Above is the Winter Salad- brussel sprouts, cauliflower, white beans, sweet potato, dried mulberries, etc...with a horseradish vinaigrette.
Then our table ordered a roasted vegetable appetizer!
Sunday night- Keeping it simple! Pizza and Family night-
Using this Pizza Dough Recipe- I already had some made and froze it so it is just thawing and will just add sauce, cheese and whatever toppings we have on hand- minimal cooking- Check!
Monday night- I am taking a meal to a friend who just had her FOURTH baby girl, so here is my go-to Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Recipe- **From Against All Grain Cookbook**- Danielle Walker
Shortcut Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
This recipe is from my All Against Grain cookbook- Danielle Walker
2 tsp ghee or extra virgin olive oil (I get my ghee at Trader Joes)
4 cloves garlic, minced 2 pounds ground beef
1 tbsp Italian seasoning 1 tbsp dried parsley
2 tsp onion powder 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
5 cups spaghetti sauce (either store bought or make your own)
Pasta of choice (I will use spaghetti squash for my noodles sometimes!)
1. Heat the ghee in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the garlic for 1 minute,
until fragrant. Add the beef and seasonings, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for
10 minutes, until the beef is cooked through. Drain any grease.
2. Pour in the spaghetti sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve over pasta or pasta
substitute of your choice.
Bringing green beans and bread to go with it for their family- doubling the recipe for us to have as well!
We are hosting a Fundraising Dinner for a missions trip to Nicaragua this summer, so it will be all about making Nicaraguan food- or so we hope : )
For my part, I am bringing, guacamole because what meal is complete without this ?, chips and these two recipes-
AND Tres Leches Cake by Pioneer Woman
Poke Avocado Bowl- I had this at a place called Timotees in Fernandina Beach and it was delish! I was inspired and wanted to recreate this.
Obviously I will make enough for 4 people, even though the recipe calls for 1 person-
Not sure! Will use leftovers, or make breakfast for dinner...
I leave you with some more pictures of celebrating our birthday girl! Our BBQ dinner on Friday night with Dave Poe and her cookie cake with Frozen figurines on it- So fun!
