My challenge was to cook twice a week all year...cook a meal...with (gasp) side dish/es. I decided to try and do the cooking on Mondays and Wednesdays so that we could have leftovers on Tuesdays and Thursdays (we usually have pizza on Friday as a Clark tradition continued and we share duties on the weekends)...it has been lovely.
Here is what I've conquered this January...it has been a delicious journey.
sweet potato cilantro enchilada casserole (with homemade corn tortillas)
baked ziti with homemade garlic bread
lentil stew with cornbread and honey and oranges for dessert
everything omelets with cornbread and honey
carrot wild rice soup with biscuits
apricot chicken with jasmine rice and green beans (last of our garden this summer)
curry lentil soup with fruit salad
sauteed veggies over jasmine rice and applesauce
roasted rotisserie chicken over jasmine rice with green beans and applesauce (weird combo I know)
baked potatoes with chili and crunchy onions, sourdough bread and fruit
Ok so I failed the last cooking time of the month with baked potato meals, but in my defense Brad really, really wanted them. Can you see the different kicks I got into...cornbread...soup...rice?
New Year's cooking goal: one month down, one to go!
