What’s For Dinner?

Getting back to better habits...

So I made some better grocery decisions this week. I didn’t buy any meat from disreputable sources, and in fact I picked up some awesome (and delicious — I know because I sampled!) chicken sausages from the Carmichael Farmer’s Market this morning. I got two different flavors so we’ll be enjoying those for lunch this week which will be excellent because I am already feeling the pressure — this. week. is. FULL!

Hopefully I will at least be well fueled, which will help me be able to kick ass and take names! Here’s what we’re munching on:

Lunch: Leftover Garlic Pepper Pork Loin from Sunday’s Dinner + Steamed Broccoli
Dinner: Cinnamon Chipotle Sliders + Sauteed Rainbow Chard

Lunch: Taco Salad
Dinner: Grilled Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs + Salad

Lunch: Mediterranean Chicken Sausage + Caprese Salad
Dinner: Blackened Chicken with Avocado Cream + Sauteed Carrots with Cumin + Orange Zest

Lunch: Chive Chicken Sausages + Sliced Red Peppers + Strawberries
Dinner: Southwestern Turkey Burgers + Brussels Sprout Slaw

Lunch: Leftover Turkey Burgers Veggie Must Go
Dinner: Pepperoni Pizza with Cauliflower Crust + Salad


Bridal Shower — this day is going to be a Free for All!

    Please come over and pick yourselves a basket of greens soon. We are overflowing! Also, where is the Carmichael farmer’s market?

      HA! You don’t have to ask me twice! I’m so sad I was too lazy to plant any this year. It’s why I dragged my ass out and planted the summer garden. Not willing to go through summer without home grown tomatoes and zucchini, no matter how much I don’t feel like gardening!

      The Farmers Market is over at Carmichael Park and it’s on Sunday’s from 9 to 12. Full of good produce, a charcuterie booth, flowers, food, and clothing. We used to go to the Country Club plaza one but this one is WAY better! (Carmichael, represent! LOL)

    So glad to see the farm eggs! Kudos to you for such an honest post about your food purchases. I admit to cringing at the sight of factory farmed eggs – not judging!! I am very fortunate to live in the country with my own laying hens, raise my own meat & milk, produce my own dairy products. I absolutely know that this is not how everyone lives. But I knew, in my heart of hearts that one can find these great farm foods somewhere near you – so yay!!!

    I really enjoy reading your blog 🙂

      I cringed at MY OWN pictures, honestly…so I can totally understand it. And you’re right, it’s all readily available. That’s what made me feel sort of guilty. It’s one thing if you don’t have the option, but I am lucky enough to live in an area where amazing food is readily available. It felt good to get back to prioritizing that this weekend, and honestly it wasn’t even less convenient! Thanks for the comment, Susannah!

      Hey, have you ever had duck eggs? They had them at the stand where I bought these eggs. I didn’t buy them but I’m curious now as to how they taste and to what to do with them? I might get experimental… 🙂

      • Susannah says:

        No, never had duck eggs. Try them and tell us! I was considering ordering a few ducks when we ordered our chicks this year but then thought more about where I’d put them and so on. No time to build another poultry house and I bet the local fox would love him/her some fresh plump duck! I should keep my eyes open for duck eggs at our farmer’s market.

    I’m going to make a brussels sprouts salad tonight. I’m also putting a whole chicken in the crock pot when I leave (stuffed with lemons and garlic) that will hopefully turn out delicious for dinner tonight. Otherwise. there’s likely some salmon burgers, meatballs, salads, and steamed veggies in my future.
