We are a busy couple both with full time jobs, volunteer positions, an active social life and three pets. Finding time to cook or prepare three meals per day with very little dining out is a challenge but it can be done!
Breakfast: During the work week we generally just have a smoothie for breakfast. We have a few standards in rotation. I will list the recipes as we go. On the weekends we'll take time to make oatmeal or egg dishes.
Lunch: I generally eat a salad and left-overs from the previous night's dinner. Robert takes a sandwich or wrap, fruit, veggies and protein bars to get him through his very busy and arduous work days at UPS.
This week's dinners are:
Sunday: Apple, cranberry and chicken sausages from Gibb's Butcher Block and mixed green salad.
Monday: Pasta bake with roasted veggies, ricotta salata, and mixed green salad.
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Cassoulet with wilted garlic spinach
Wednesday: Roasted cauliflower, chickpea and quinoa
Thursday: Crab stuffed flounder (from Trader Joe's), brown rice and steamed broccoli
Friday: Grilled cilantro chicken and sweet potatoes
Saturday: Out to dinner on a date with my honey :)
