A new week is here. I got a bit more organized this weekend. Doesn’t that feel good when you have a free couple of hours and you can sit and really think? That is just what I did on Saturday morning. Felt great to look at my goals again, look at the next month or two on the calendar, and start to think about the summer ahead.
There were two meals that were favored above the rest this week. Pizza, of course, and stir fry with Thai noodles. Neither that need a recipe. Just sort of throw it all together. Funny how the simplest of meals end up being the favorites.
For Stir fry the only thing you need to really be mindful of is putting foods that take the longest to cook in first. Like carrots and cabbage.
There is garlic in there too.
Then I add the ‘soft’ foods. Like broccoli and mushrooms. Sometimes I add bean sprouts but didn’t this time. Really anything that you like will work. Add in a simple soy sauce and stir! My sauce is just a mixture of tamari sauce, oil, honey, and corn starch.
Doesn’t that look good? We serve stir fry with pasta, rice or rice noodles. Last week it was rice noodles.
Rice noodles are easy because you just soak them in hot water and when they are soft you quickly stir fry them and serve.
We cooked pizza on the grill using the pizza stone, thanks to http://threadlover.com/.
Now, for this week’s menu:
Monday: Confetti Speghetti
Tuesday: Whole chicken, red potatoes, and asparagus
Wednesday: Bean and Rice burritos or something frozen (My husband and I are going out)
Thursday: Chicken Soup
Friday: Stew beef Shepards pie
Saturday: Speghetti and clam sauce. My son’s 21st birthday. He requested the meal.
Sunday: Salmon packets on the grill with rice and squash
Have a great week!
