Please don’t judge me based on my eating habits. I try to keep everything as healthy and balanced as possible- but sometimes a girl just needs her bon bons and Cheetos right?
I am so excited for what is going to go in my belly this week! Some of these items literally have my mouth watering. I’ve mentioned before that I like to use Pinterest to curb the eating boredom. It is so easy to get stuck on the same foods week after week. I also use it so that I stick to my grocery budget! Another score this week! So if anything here suits your fancy, head over there and check them out for yourself. My food Board is labeled Dinner Time.
Friday: Brazilian Stroganoff with Brazilian Rice
Stroganoff: Basically I take 2 cans of chicken and saute them with a little bit of butter and half of a boullion cube. I season with oregano, salt and pepper. When it is hot, I add two cans of creme de leite, and a can of corn. I let that heat up but not over cook. Serve over rice.
The Brazilian Rice is super easy too. I dice a few cloves of garlic and saute with oil in a pot. Then I add the rice and saute that together. When the rice is loose ( not stuck together ) I add enough water to cover the rice ( about two cm) . We use salt to taste. Let it boil. Then turn it down low, and cover the pot until it is the density you want!
We top this dish with shoe string potatoes. It’s the american substitute. It works!
Saturday: Taco Salad : Pretty Straightforward it’s like a taco in a bowl. We just add brazilian rice.
Sunday: SUPERBOWL – which means I will end up in a junk food coma by Sunday Night. Michael is in charge of feeding us then, and he is not a planner. I am excited to see what we have!
Monday: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers: Pinterest
Tuesday: Salad with grilled Chicken, Avocado and honey and lime vinaigrette: Pinterest
Wednesday: Brazilian Rice and Beans : So I am pretty lazy when it comes to beans. You can make them with a pressure cooker, but these days I just open three cans of black beans! I always saute garlic, onion, and sausage in a pan first though. Then I season to taste. If I am feeding a large crowd then the pressure cooker is the way to go. In that case, Ill add a bay leaf in the mix too. We serve it over Brazilian Rice- Instructions Above. Some days I’ll add a salad, or fried eggs to the combo. Yum Yum Yum.
Thursday: Vegetable Fried Quinoa : Pinterest
Friday: Tilapia, Baked Brussel Sprouts, and Smashed Potatoes : Pinterest
I want to know:
What is on your dinner menu this week? Or do you forgo all the planning and like to wing it? My mom has the most amazing deep freezer and food pantry. I could make a killer meal out of there for a whole six months without planning ahead. Now THAT is the life. Please comment Below!
