Week Seven

   Breakfast potatoes that I served with scrambled egg whites 

 Roasted sweet potatoes and lemon pepper chicken wings 

   Tilapia piccata. This was so, so good (served with the fried squash and mashed potatoes below)

 Beef meatloaf. The Ethiopian haaaaates meatloaf. So this was just for me. I normally make my meatloaf with ground turkey and after this one? Even though it was good, turkey is more my jam.
   Chocolate chip banana bread. Made this on a win when The Ethiopian got a snow day and worked from home.

 Lemon pepper wings and tomato & avocado salad that I took to The Ethiopian when I needed to take him something he forgot to work.
   Lemon pepper wings (we were having a moment – and note that I cook them under the broiler with very little oil) and a salad 

 Baked  cheese.  Kidding. It’s an eggplant gratin and it was delicious. We ate just with garlic bread.

  The aforementioned fried squash and mashed potatoes. 

Week Five 

This week I really, really did not want to cook dinners. But I managed to eek out a couple. 

   This was actually a breakfast I made for The Ethiopian yesterday. Egg white omelet with a few pan-roasted tomatoes and some goat cheese. Next to a Trader Joe’s hash brown and some avocado.

 A spring mix salad with avocado, beers, goat cheese and candied walnuts. We are this with baked sweet potatoes which apparently are a new hot commodity in our household 
   This was basically a take on cabbage rolls but “unstuffed”. We ate a lot of cabbage this week. I’m not mad.

 Shout out to Trader Joe’s orange chicken and veggie fried rice.
 This was really good –  cabbage,potatoes, smoked turkey sausage and peppers. Yum.
