Are the seasons all wacky where you live right now? They sure are here in North Carolina! Today, for example, will be 76 and sunny (wahoo!), but the high will be 48 by Thursday. This makes me realize I probably need to buy at least 1 or 2 short sleeve maternity tops (I thought I was done, darn it!) and eat as many soups and crockpot meals as possible. Warm weather is on it’s way!
Let’s take a look at last week’s eats…
Sunday– Seafood Gumbo over Brown Rice.
I don’t have a recipe to link to because I combined about 3 different ones and made a silly amount of substitutions. This dinner worked out great because I realized I had frozen shrimp and scallops that needed to be used, which cut down on the cost of ingredients.
Monday– White Bean and Kale Veggie Stew with a Chicken Side Salad
A thumbs up for Emily’s latest recipe! I didn’t make the crunchy chickpeas to go on top, but the stew held up on it’s own. Hailey ate it, too, and liked it and mine bowl was best with a splash of hot sauce.
Wednesday– Papa Murphy’s Pizza and Salad
I made a big ‘ol salad for dinner, then life got hectic and I didn’t have time to cook, plus Hailey’s molars were giving me a run for my money, so David picked up a pizza. Great decision.
Friday– Mom’s Chicken ‘n Veggie and Regular Meat Lasagna
Mom made two lasagna’s and a salad to bring to the beach, which made Friday night’s dinner quick and delicious!
Saturday– Chicken Fajita Salad
We took Saturday night’s meal duty, chicken fajitas! I chopped all the veggies and cut up the chicken before heading to the beach, so cooking it up and putting out the toppings for the assembly line was all it took to pull dinner together for 6.
Sunday– Salty Dog Café’s Blackened Mahi Sandwich with Fruit
A late lunch also subbed as dinner before we hit the car for the ride home.
Thanks Jenn for hosting WIAW!
