I mentioned we’ve been trying to clean up our diets after a couple months of indulgences. Here’s a sample of what we’ve been feeding ourselves.
Last Sunday we watched the Seahawks valiantly try to come back but still lose while eating these amazing wings from Nom Nom Paleo. Seriously amazing. Will be making on Super Bowl Sunday for sure.
Later for dinner I made some meatballs (ground beef, ground pork, garlic, chives, parsley, salt and pepper). Simmered in some simple marinara and dinner was ready. Both Teddy and Cormac are obsessed with spaghetti and meatballs, so this was a super simple meal for the whole family.
For lunch throughout the week, I made Mexican Chicken Soup from Ina Garten, minus the tortilla chips. Topped with avocado, super easy, filling lunch.
Some random night this week, I made Chicken Cacciatore from The Chew (subbed homemade chicken broth for the red wine). Michael Symon. Heart eyes emoji.
I used leftover chicken thigh bones (everyone keeps leftover chicken bones in a Ziplock in their freezer, right?), to make some chicken broth in the slow cooker (throw bones, a chopped carrot, onion, and celery with some parsley, salt and pepper in the cooker on low for 8 hours). Add in onions, carrots, celery and herbs along with some poached, shredded chicken thighs, and you’ve got soup.
Ohhhhh and the best thing ever (not an ad, I swear) – SunBasket: a recipe ingredient delivery service similar to Blue Apron, but with more diet-specific options (Paleo, Vegetarian, Classic, etc). We got our first delivery this week and all the Paleo options were Whole30 complaint and super easy.
You all know I love a recipe meal delivery service. I loved anything with delivery actually. Oh, and I’ve been making a lot of Nespresso lattes with coconut milk. Pretty good. That’s probably all I’ve got for now.
