I’ve been feeling very inspired by food lately. It’s goes in fits and starts. Right now I’m on a roll. It’s nothing fancy, it’s really just more about the motivation and groove to get everything prepared for the week on the weekend.
This week’s work menu looks like this:
Here are two quick informal recipes for my Texas caviar and cucumber salad:
Texas Caviar: Mix 1 can diced tomatoes (or dice your own) with 2 cans rinsed black beans, 1 can rinsed sweet corn and 1/2 small chopped onion. Serve with avocado over the top. Add whatever spices you think sound good. I didn’t add any, but cilantro, chili powder and Italian dressing are some good options. You might also like to eat this inside a whole wheat tortilla.
I was able to prep all my food in an hour, including cleanup. My little girl was underfoot most of the time and I did a lot of stirring with her on my hip. I had multiple things going at one time. While I was prepping the salads, my onions and mushrooms were sauteing in a pan and my eggs were boiling. So doable, right?
Dinners are one trip to Noodles and Co (which just opened in my town!!!), a cookout, easy Parmesan chicken, a pork roast with veggies, a simple ground turkey/veggie skillet and leftovers.
What kinds of things do you like to prep for the week? Are you interested in seeing more of my weekly menus?
