I'm going to try posting a few meals that we had the previous week and thought that maybe you'd want to do the same. I'm not going to take fancy pics, just pics with my iPhone, then I'll post the pics and a link to the recipe or post the recipe if it's not online. I would LOVE for you to share with us as well, even if they are the simplest meals ever, we may not have thought to do what you're doing in your kitchen. All you need to do is post on your blog and then fill out the form at the bottom of the weekly post. I think that this will be a great way to share what we're making for dinner and maybe help us get out a dinner rut. This is totally a trial, so we'll see how it goes.
Okay so these were a few of last weeks meals that we loved:
Annie's Eats Crispy Baked Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce (see the recipe I used for Teriyaki below), served with brown rice and green beans sauteed with salt and pepper and sprinkled with parmesan cheese at the end.
from Once Upon a Dream
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/8 cup cold water
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat just until it starts to bubble.
In a small bowl combine the corn starch and 1/8 cup of cold water and stir well.
Add the corn starch mixture to the sauce and heat while stirring until sauce thickens, this will be very fast.
Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Balsamic Roasted Chicken from Gena Knox. The only change I made to this recipe was that I added extra carrots and potatoes because I knew we would want more than it called for.
Whole Foods Baked Chicken with Spinach, Pears and Blue Cheese; served with quinoa. (This picture doesn't do it justice, if you want a better picture go to the Whole Foods site, it was SO SO yummy! Dirk said one of the best meals I've made in awhile) Oh, and the recipe calls for the pears to be peeled but they had the peel on them in the picture so I left the peel on and it was great!
I do hope that you'll link up. I'd love some more dinner ideas!!!
