Food Prep!!!

Sunday, October 13, 2013

It's been a while since I did a full-on food prep. I'm still cooking sporadically, but I have been eating out a bit too much these past 2 weeks, so I'm re-focusing by cooking up a storm today. Lots of veggies, lots of flavor, lots of options, no excuses.

Today I made...

*BBQ Chicken and Beans in Slow Cooker* recipes.sparkpeop
Going to serve this on spaghetti squash or baked potatoes w/ avocado slices.

*Primal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins* recipes.sparkpeop

*Bolognese Sauce*

(I added about a cup of Pinot Grigio to deglaze the pan and add flavor).
Going to serve this over zucchini noodles.

*Spaghetti Squash w/ Chorizo, Kale, and Mushroom* floridagirlindc.b
(I didn't bother making meatballs and just browned the chorizo with onions and mushrooms. Then I deglazed the pan with pinot grigio, added the kale, and subbed coconut milk for the cream. Also added some turmeric, cumin, red pepper flakes, garlic, and oregano. Yum!).

Then, Later in the week, I' making...

*Baked Garlic Butter Halibut, Wild Rice Cranberry Almond Pilaf, Broccolini

*Crab stuffed Alaskan Salmon w/ sauteed Zucchini and Red Bell Pepper*

*Roasted Carrots and Beets with pan-seared Pork Chops*

Whew! It took a while, but it was so worth it. The Chicken, Bolognese sauce, and Chorizo/Kale/Mushroom meals all made so much that I was able to freeze half and save it for a lazy week sometime in the future :)
