Happy Friday! What was your favorite meal [or dessert, or snack] this week?
Here's what we had:
Monday - Harvest Pizza [pesto, butternut squash, and goat cheese] from How Sweet It Is, except without bacon and I used a jar of basil pesto instead of making the sage pesto.
Tuesday - I had an egg salad sandwich with Swede before I went to book club, snacked on Smart Food Popcorn and a Kind bar when I got home, and woke up starving at 2 am for a bowl of cereal.
Wednesday - Crock-Pot Chicken and Dumplings. After browsing some recipes online I added an onion, a few carrots and potatoes, four chicken breasts, salt, pepper, and thyme to the Crock-Pot, covered with chicken broth, and cooked for 6 hours. Then I shredded the chicken, added a 1/4 cup of corn starch mixed with 1 cup of milk, and cooked for another hour. Then I topped with dumplings (per The Joy of Cooking) and cooked for another twenty minutes. It turned out great! Definitely my favorite meal this week and a will be a staple this winter.
Thursday - Aidells Spicy Mango & Jalopeno Sausage, a box of Lundberg Garlic Primavera Risotto, and roasted Brussels Sprouts.
Friday - We're going to get takeout from Thai Kitchen. My go-to is Pad Thai with tofu and veggies.
I didn't have anything special for breakfast/lunch except on Thursday after I dropped Swede off at preschool I picked up pastries from my favorite local bakery. I almost always get a ham & cheese croissant.
I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. What I'm looking forward to most is getting a pedicure tomorrow!
