I spent about three hours trying to write this blog. Not because it was difficult but because I had no clue what to say.
This is the season of my life right now.
Life is interesting but it’s pretty similar week after week. Adam and I go to work, I squeeze in errands and a few recipes here in there, we meal prep over the weekend, and then we start the whole process over again.
I know we are building a brighter future for ourselves and I’m excited about everything that’s on the horizon. If that means less interesting Monday blog posts then that’s what it means for right now.
I do have some menu planning ideas for you though, because what would Monday be without a little meal prep?
Here is the Dawson menu for this week:
- Monday- Leftover pulled pork with roasted broccoli, pasta for Adam, and spinach for me. I might also make some sweet potato fries for the husband because I am an awesome wife.
- Tuesday- Chicken sausage & shrimp in lemon butter sauce. Adam will have it over pasta and I’ll have it over shirataki noodles. Oh, and roasted vegetables.
- Wednesday- Cast iron curry chicken thighs and spinach. I love cooking thighs in the cast iron because it’s so quick and makes the skin extra crispy.
- Thursday- Pan-seared ocean perch with green beans. I’m still not a huge fan of ocean perch but I still have some left so I’ll suck it up and eat it.
No plans for Friday or Saturday dinner yet, but I’m working on a few new recipes like Chili Dog Casserole, Chip-Less Nachos, Everything But the Bagel Chicken Poppers, and simple Roasted Cornish Game Hens. What would you like to see first?
Oh, other things I made this weekend:
- Roasted artichokes
- Hardboiled eggs
- Meal prep lunches
- Fat bombs (I made a new version but you should def check out these ones)
- Marinated olives
- Macadamia Cream Cheese (I followed this recipe but instead of chives I used Greek Seasoning. YUM!)
- Macadamia nut butter (roasted raw macadamia’s at 325 until lightly brown and then blended until smooth with 1 tsp salt.)
- Baked Oatmeal Bars with bananas instead of cranberries
