This week was pretty disappointing in the cooking department. Although we've eaten together every night this week, with the exception of Friday and Saturday nights, I didn't cook very much. So here it is... our week in review:
Sunday: Leftovers from Saturday night
Monday: More leftovers (we cooked way too much chicken and steak)
Tuesday: Rotisserie chicken (yep, I'm sick of chicken ), baked potato, spinach salad
Wednesday: Leftover chicken and whatever else was left in the fridge.
Thursday: Fried Backstrap, Rice and onion gravy, and Green beans.
Friday: The girls and I were at a party and the boys got take-out.
Saturday: Zeb and I went on a date. We ate Popcorn and Nerds for dinner. I'm not sure what Lee did with the other three, but I'm sure it was a lot healthier than what Zeb and I ate.
I'm pretty disappointed in myself this week, but no-one went hungry, we spent time around the table, and we didn't waste much; so it wasn't a colossal failure . I know we'll have weeks like this, and I need to be okay with that.
I'll leave you with a great way to cook green beans... a favorite for my family! I think this is a Paula Dean recipe.
Fancy Green Beans
Cook frozen, long green beans in water in a frying pan.
Drain most of the water when done.
Add in 1/2 stick of butter, around 1/4 cup honey, and 1/4 cup teriyaki. Simmer for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
You can also add in chopped cashews and it's wonderful. Yumm-O!
