Happy Easter everyone! Here is a recap of the meals we ate last week. I hope you get some good ideas!
Sunday- Chicken Rollatini with Prosciutto and Asparagus with Sautéed Zucchini and Brown Rice
See the recipe posted last week!
Monday- Greek Turkey Burgers with Side Salad
I was working late on Monday, so we used the very last of the frozen turkey burgers for a quick meal. I promise this is the last time you’ll see them on the blog for a while! I always tell people who are interested in learning how to meal plan efficiently to make recipes or ingredients that you can use for multiple meals. These turkey burgers are an excellent example. I only had to prep them once and they served as dinner 3 times, and lunch once, for me and Michael.
As I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan of Mediterranean flavors as well as Greek yogurt and this recipe combined both! The chicken was very tender and flavorful and paired well with the creamy Greek yogurt tzatziki. I used a recipe for Mediterranean farro salad that I’ve made many times and substituted whole wheat orzo for farro because that’s what I had on hand.
Wednesday- Cobb Salads
There’s nothing I hate more than a boring salad. Cobb salads are typically very indulgent, with plenty of blue cheese, dressing and bacon. I made a healthier version using romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, scallions, hard-boiled eggs, turkey bacon, and a lightened up blue cheese dressing. I even made the dressing lighter than the recipe called for by taking out the tablespoon of mayo. I never buy it, and didn’t think it would make much of a difference taste-wise, so I left it out.
Thursday- Swiss Chard and Potato Shakshuka
Shakshuka is basically eggs baked in tomato sauce. It works great as a breakfast or as a quick and easy dinner. This shakshuka added peppers, potatoes, and swiss chard to the mix for more veggie power. I added a couple extra eggs to our recipe for more protein.
Friday- Pad Thai
This was attempt number one of a new recipe I’m working on. It turned out good, but still needs a little work. Recipe coming soon (okay probably not soon, but eventually)!
