Time for another edition of what I ate this week! We had a lot of good meals this week, so without further ado:
We were at our friends’ house for the Patriot’s game so I made hummus and guacamole to share. Besides that, we snacked on buffalo chicken dip, pizza dip, Regina’s pizza, and cupcakes!
Sunday- BBQ chicken sandwiches with green bean fries
Most BBQ sauces are loaded with sugar and high fructose corn syrup, so I prefer to make my own. I made a double batch of this BBQ sauce and froze half for another time. I used some of my homemade vegetable broth to make shredded chicken in the crock pot, and tossed it with the BBQ sauce. The green bean fries on the side were excellent! They reminded me of onion rings. If you have kids who are picky eaters, this would be a great way to get them to eat more vegetables.
Monday- BBQ chicken chilaquiles
Recipe coming soon!
Tuesday- Sweet potato and black bean enchiladas
I prepped the enchilada sauce and filling on Monday, and had Michael put them together on Tuesday since I was working late. I used this recipe but replaced the butternut squash with sweet potato. They were a little spicy, but I cooled them down with a big dollop of Greek yogurt (a much lower calorie and lower fat alternative to sour cream!).
Wednesday- Salmon Caesar salad
Since I close the gym on Wednesdays, I made the salad earlier in the week and brought it to work with me. I used this Caesar dressing recipe (minus the anchovies, plus some capers). My brother hates all dressings except this one, so you should give it a try!
Thursday- Asian chicken soup
Again, I made this earlier in the week and just had to heat it up on Thursday night! Meal prep is everything, especially when work gets crazy!
Friday- Out to eat after the Bruins game!
Happy Sunday everyone! Keeping my fingers crossed for a Pat’s win today!
