Ahhh it feels nice to be back on the meal planning train. Last week was pretty crazy and over the last two weeks I made quite a few of the dishes I set out to make the week of the 8th Everything was good. I also created a stuffed sweet potato one night which I really enjoyed. Joey claimed that he wasn't hungry, but then he saw mine and wanted one!
Stuffed Sweet Potato
- 1 sweet potato (Mine was organic)
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup of corn
- shredded cheese (I used cheddar)
- 1/4 cup salsa
- 2 tbsp low fat sour cream
Cut slits in the sweet potato. Put on a plate and microwave for 8 - 12 minutes, until soft. Add corn and cheese on top of sweet potato and microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Add salsa and sour cream and enjoy! This would also be really yummy with black beans, but I didn't have any in the house that night.
We also remembered how much we love All You Need is Loaf from Eat Shrink and Be Merry. It's been awhile since I made it, and it was so delicious. I served it with some mashed potatoes and veggies and it was a great classic meal. If you don't own ESBM, you really need to get yourself a copy or a least borrow someone elses. Everything I've ever made from that book has been amazing and definite "keepers" in our house. I really appreciate that it's Canadian so the recipes never include items that we can't get here. Everything is WW friendly and the fact that the nutritional information is included at the bottom of each recipe makes calculating Points a breeze!
This week I'm doing my show, but I've got a couple of nights off which will be nice. I'm back in with my slow cooker after neglecting it for a week. I hope there are no hard feelings. Tonight I'll also be making some banana muffins from the Refresh cookbook that I picked up a couple of weeks ago in addition to the black bean burritos.
