Since the weekend got away from me, I ended up cooking a few things on Monday and Tuesday...really late at night. I am also using a few quick and easy helpers to get me through the week. Here are some of the things I made in a rush to feed our family:Organic chicken thighs coated in eggwash and whole wheat flower with garlic and stewed tomato topping. I used Rotel for the tomato part and gave it a spicy kick! Please disregard the pile of funky juice on the top!
Sesame lime and olive oil roasted brussels sprouts- so easy and so good! We really enjoyed the sprouts when we went out to dinner and I wanted to replicate them without the bottle of oil.Trader Joe's Mushroom Tortellini for an easy carb to go with meals. I love that these come dry and cook in 15 minutes, flat!
A new Odwalla smoothie to use as a base for smoothies for the husband and as a base for my protein cookies! This does have 190 cals per serving with 10 grams of protein, so a small splash goes a long way, in my opinion.
What are some of your favorite easy meals or quick fixes for a busy week?
