After living in a temporary home for 3 months and feeling like I couldn't really make much for my family...I have a renewed vision for feeding my family. Not to mention making snacky meals while Chuck was living in another state and I only had to make dinner for the girls and I. I needed the boost, for I have been in a bit of food slump for awhile. I feel like I make the same 10-15 meals and I am getting a bit tired of it. This year one of my goals was to have half of our meal be fruits and veggies. I have spent some of my free (which, let's be honest - I don't really have free time right now) time pouring over recipe books (one of my favorite things to read) and I am making a menu and working off of that for my shopping and meals. I thought by putting it out there it might make me feel a little accountable for it.
I tried a new recipe for roasted veggies. I got the recipe from another blog (HERE). I didn't use exactly the veggies that it called for, but when I was shopping that week, half of my carriage at the store was full of produce.
Here it is before I roasted it. I am loving this stoneware. Everything turns out great in it.
I made this with a few other new recipes that night. I will post later about the whole wheat french bread (yum).
Last night I made turkey tetrazzini (another new recipe) and we all loved it. If I hadn't had company over for dinner I would have taken a picture of that too. =)
So, I will try and post some recipes that I have tried and liked. Maybe I can inspire someone else out there who is in a food slump. Any fantastic healthy recipes that you have I would love for you to share. Bring it on, inspire me. =)
