Keeping to mostly quick and/or easy meals this week. I did NOT end up making the roast turkey meal as I had originally planned, as I ended up working Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday is supposed to be my day off now, but there were some schedule shenanigans that needed to be worked out. Anyway, I’m trying to save bigger endeavors for Wednesday, especially as we are using Sundays as our hiking day. This week that fell a little to the wayside, though. I worked late a few evenings and had an awful migraine Friday. We picked up take out three times. Ugh. Some weeks are like that, I guess.
I didn’t capture all my breakfasts, and some I ate a couple of times. But here are the few I did catch!
Oatmeal w/Raisins and Walnuts, Strawberry Scones, Toast and Jam
Hot Dogs, Waffle Fries, Apple Slices
- I mentioned last week that I had been craving hot dogs and that craving happily coincided with a BOGO sale at Publix. I really try to eat only beef hot dogs as I like the flavor and texture of those the best. I paired them with the sweet potato waffle fries from Aldi, which are really, really good. I also made a big pitcher of fresh lemonade, using up lemons that had been wasting away on the counter.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
- I used the Thin and Crispy Crust recipe on Budget Bytes and topped with leftover salsa chicken, chopped jalapenos, black beans, cheddar cheese, red onions and used BBQ sauce instead of red sauce. It turned out really tasty!!
Spicy Black Bean Soup
- My usual. Topped with crushed tortilla chips, cheddar cheese and hot sauce.
Zucchini and Pea Risotto
- This is such a great spring time dish. It does take some committed time stirring it up, but that task doesn’t require a ton of attention. I am usually able to read while doing it! Drizzled with a little basil infused olive oil and additional grated parmesan over top.
