Yes, yes, I know it’s March…but February went by so stinkin’ fast! We were out of town for a few days, and I have a really hard time remembering to take a picture of my dinner plate every night. So I had a collection of pictures, but it wasn’t actually a set of meals that we had had in a week, and as the keeper of self-imposed blog rules, I didn’t want to give you a fake meal plan. (So instead I’m pretending it’s still February, and I’m planning to give you a March plan this month, too.)
My January meal plan had an inadvertent broccoli theme, and this time it’s bbq! I had seen turkey breast tenderloins at Trader Joe’s and wanted to try them since I had never cooked them before. I couldn’t find a recipe that grabbed me so I slightly modified the cooking technique I use for pork tenderloin and basted them with bbq sauce after the searing step. Success! It was a nice change of pace.
roasted turkey breast tenderloin with bbq sauce, roasted sweet potato bites, mashed cauliflower
30-minute white bean and chicken soup from How Sweet Eats (I decided to make this at the last minute using chicken and stock I had in the freezer from making this soup, so I made a modified version without mushrooms or leeks and it was still yummy!), served with whole wheat banana bran muffins
leftover crockpot bbq beef sandwiches, cut up carrots and peppers
grilled cheese, tomato soup (I loooove the Organic Creamy Tomato Soup that comes in a carton at Trader Joe’s!), green beans
We also had a date night (wooooot!) and a night Jay was out and my three-year-old and I ate a bunch of random things, including but not limited to hummus, frozen yogurt, cashews, and Cheerios. :o)
