Weekly Menu Recap - Week of February 1

Slow Cooker Curry from WW Magazine
This recipe was really easy and really tasty. I couldn't find the lemongrass but I think it would have made a great addition. It's in the current edition of the magazine which can be found on news stands or in WW Meeting rooms.

Pork chops, acorn squash and quinoa
I came home on Monday night to discover that the acorn squash that was in my fridge had gone to squash-y heaven and needed to put it in the green bin. I also found out that a friend of ours was coming over to work on some music with Joey. She's a vegetarian so the pork chops weren't going to cut it for her. So I made the pork chops for Joey and I (fast fry on the stove with 2 tsp of oil, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I made Quinoa pilaf from Ultimate Foods for Ultimate Health which was very simple, but very yummy. I also steamed some carrots and mixed in some Becel & a bit of honey. To make sure that Lori didn't go hungry I also microwaved a bit of corn. It was a good meal and everyone left happy and satisfied.

Indian Curry with brown rice
So far I have not been disappointed with anything I've made from A Year of Crockpotting and this was no exception! Both Joey and I really enjoyed this dish and it tasted even better the next day for lunch.

Mushroom Cholent
This was not a hit. It was gross and bland and just a big pile of mush. Joey tolerated it a little better than I did, but most of it went in the green bin. More spices could have made it better, but I really wasn't a fan.

The thai curry and the lentil sloppy joes didn't happen. Rehearsals got the best of me this week and on Thursday I had leftovers and Friday I went out for dinner.

Winterlicious
This meal was great! We went to
Pan for their Winterlicious-type menu. It was a great night out and I truly enjoyed everything. I started with a selection of dips, followed by the chicken breast and then had the Galaktoboureko for dessert. Dessert sort of went against my no-sugar crucade, but I've been really good with that the last few weeks so I thought I would treat myself!
