Sunday was Mass and religious ed, football, and favorite Sunday night shows. All in all, uneventful, which was actually great after last weekend's flu fest, but not the best fodder for a blog post...
So I'm going to share another round of meals, because when all else fails - food. Am I right?
|Red Cabbage with Lime and Cilantro // Filipino Chicken Adobo|
|Chicken Tortilla Soup // Grocery Store "Take & Bake" Ciabatta Bread|
Our best laid plans were a bit thrown by nearly a week of the stomach flu, but we're back on the meal planning, grocery list making bandwagon. Since we're still in the beginning stages of this whole endeavor, I'm trying to find new recipes that can become family favorites. If you have any favorites that your family loves, please feel free to share here or on the FaceBook page!
Here we go:
Chicken Tortilla Soup (good, but I used a little too much of the chili in adobo, and it was HOT) // Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
Shrimp Tacos (this recipe, except lemon and parsley replaced by lime and cilantro) // Red Cabbage with Lime and Cilantro (I used the linked recipe, but added much more cilantro)
Red Beans and Rice (Zatarain's Reduced Sodium Mix with 1/2 lb cooked ham added) // Fresh Veggies
Filipino Chicken Adobo (really tasty, pretty quick, very rich - perfect for Sunday dinner!) // Rice // Roasted Carrots
Cuban Picadillo // Rice // Tostones (we haven't tried this meal yet, but SkinnyTaste.com hasn't disappointed in the past)
Ricotta Calzones with Tomato Sauce (except I'm using frozen pizza dough from a farmer's market vendor) // Side Salad
Tuna Melts on Ciabbata // Fries // Fresh Veggies
