So, trying to plan out meals for one comes with its challenges. And then, also, there’s trying to create variety, and also manage waste by using up what’s on hand. Continue reading “Managing the menu”
Meals for this week will be themed and inspired by my visit to Greece…
Homemade tzatziki. Who would have imagined something made from cucumbers and plain yogurt (okay: and garlic and lemon and dill, so that’s where the magic happens) could be so delicious?
I’m also making… seasoned beef inspired by gyro and souvlaki flavors… and spanikopita. With Kalamata olives as a delicious garnish to it all.
Now all I need is a glass of wine and good found-friends, and I’ll (almost) be back in Greece again.
For a week, I mostly used the taco meat and veggies as nachos rather than tacos. Continue reading “Spicy”
So here’s my challenge: there’s one of me.
And I’m watching my portion sizes like a hawk.
So anything I make stretches a long way. Seriously, Continue reading “Meal dilemma”
Back a while I made all the meals for what turned out to be almost two weeks.
Like, two weeks ago, actually.
After the same rotation of meals, comes another weekend and more meals to prep.
So I already mentioned the granola.
Other meals on the docket will be:
Chicken fajitas (I couldn’t find a kit in stock but I had all the spices to make my own fajita seasoning mix and the rest was on hand)
Dirty rice (normally I would do Zatarains and just add some extra vegetables but that’s been sold out forever so I’ll be trying from scratch.) With yellow instead of green peppers because the heart wants what it wants.
Outcome: just as not pretty as always, and still delicious.
Pizza (I didn’t bother trying to make flatbread this time. Boboli will do…)
That ought to do it!
I’m not a breakfast person, generally. Coffee, yes. Breakfast, not so much. Part of that is the fact that undiluted eggs make me vomit. (Not an exaggeration. Sorry to be graphic.)
So obviously I’m not going anywhere. So what to do, what to do?
Well, after my workout(s), I fish around to the bottom of my freezer for what needs to get used, then start prepping meals for the week to come. Continue reading “Weekend plans: a week of meals”
So, I don’t know about you, but I find it’s hard to be self-disciplined about everything at once.
I still haven’t reinstalled my games on my phone (though every so often a friend needs a little help with the daily puzzle and I’m happy to chip in a little extra brainpower – between us we get it done). And that’s fun, without the game being able to eat up too much of my day. So… I have not installed it for my own use. But I can’t promise I won’t. Continue reading “Pick your poison”
