As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I'm going to cook a new healthy dish each week. I started last night with beets, since I had a bunch in my fridge already from my CSA box. I've been wanting to try this Cooking Light raw beet salad, but my beets were red, I think I didn't shave them thinly enough, and I skipped the shallots because I didn't have any and don't like them. So I really can't blame the recipe, but this dish wasn't what I hoped it would be (however, I've been eating the raw beets today - marinating in the Meyer lemon juice has made them more tender and far more palatable):
I was a good girl and even cooked the greens:
Not the prettiest thing, but I (loosely) followed the anchovy variation of this Martha Stewart recipe, and it came out tasty.
This week, I'm going to try my hand at quinoa (since I have that free bag from Ralphs in the cupboard). The kids are back to school, so I will also be planning breakfast to make mornings a little easier:
Breakfast - Bagels with cream cheese
Dinner - Best Quinoa Salad EVER, Grilled Shrimp, Garlic Bread
Breakfast - Breakfast Coffee Cake
Dinner - Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Lemon-Glazed Sweet Potatoes
Breakfast - Oatmeal
Dinner - Sashimi, rice, sauteed bok choy
Breakfast - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Dinner - Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Smoked Trout appetizers, fruit
Breakfast - Cereal
Dinner - Cheesy Mashed White Beans With Kale, Parmesan, and a Fried Egg
Saturday & Sunday: I think we'll be out and about both days, and will just have to grab food wherever we are. If we happen to be home, I'll make something easy like quesadillas.
