This week I thought I would change things up and add two grilled meals to the weekly menu. Well, apparently Mother Nature did not think it was time for grilled food since the first meal I had planned also brought and ice storm that same evening. Thankfully dinner was done before it got too bad outside, but come morning this is what we all woke up to.
(***Note: the bed sheet on the window of our son’s car is so he would not have to scrape his windows at 5a.m.. It works just like a tear off….sweet trick if you hate scraping your windows)
Thankfully, both my husband and son each stayed home from work and did not have to travel in this winter mess.
Besides that one evening of grilling misery, we also enjoyed a few more meals that were easy to prepare. Take a look….
Saturday: Asian chicken lettuce wraps with sauteed baby bok choy and mushrooms on the side
****You can read about my baby bok choy find here if you missed it.
Sunday: sweet potato quinoa chili (meatless) recipe here
Monday: grilled chicken sausages, homemade coleslaw, and baked beans
Wednesday: grilled chicken thighs, roasted broccoli, and rice/orzo side dish
That should do it for this week. I can’t wait to trade in my whisk for my hiking boots and blog about something a bit more exciting than food. Sadly though, I still find myself deeply searching for new and exciting recipes to serve my family rather than researching trails to visit in our area that we have never seen. Spring has not arrived quite yet, but for now I am just hanging in there and waiting patiently.
