I love visiting family because I always get ideas of new foods to add to my weekly menu. I'm hoping to make these dishes a part of my daily life.
Oatmeal and Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
Breakfast was just oatmeal, quinoa with milk, cinnamon, and a little maple syrup. Bananas and walnuts.
Chicken Curry Over Brown Basmati Rice
The curry was made with a simmering sauce I got at the supermarket. Because I'm fancy like that. I baked and then chopped up some chicken, boiled some carrots, chopped up a ton of cilantro, and then mixed it all together with the simmer sauce until I couldn't stand it anymore. I like it with rice ... because I couldn't get my hands on any naan :)
Apple and Bacon Belgian Waffles
From the Williams-Sonoma Baby Food Cookbook

Stuffed Acorn Squash
I halved two acorn squash, scooped out the guts, rubbed them with some olive oil and salt and pepper and then roasted them, flesh side down, for about 30 minutes at 400. For the filling I cooked some tuscan pork sausage, and then sautéed onion and garlic. Red pepper flakes, lots of parsley. I combined that with some wild rice.
I whisked up seven eggs and put in a splash of milk and a little bit of salt/pepper. Caramelized some yellow onion, cooked up and chopped some bacon, and chopped a whole lot of spinach, and then combined them in the pan for a little bit. Spread the mixture in a baking dish (one with a crust and one without) then pour the egg mixture over. Oh, and there was cheese. Swiss, I think :)
Pioneer Woman's Loaded Nachos
Sean made them and they were the best nachos I've ever had. Again, can't post the recipe on here because of copyright reasons, but I promise you they will not disappoint.
What's on your weekly menu?
