The other night I made some charcoal steaks on the grill. I had never made this particular type of steak before but they looked good and I was surprised at how cheap there were, about 3 dollars. The interwebz tells me that charcoal steak is chuck arm steak and like most inexpensive cuts of meat just needs a little TLC to taste fabulous.
So tomorrow I am running the Race to Wrigley 5K. I registered for this race back in the beginning of January when I was running several days a week. Since then, things have become even more crazy busy and my workout schedule has been…sporadic. Here is a tasty recipe that offers some carbs and lean protein alongside some veggies.
Thank goodness for Sunday. It has been a particularly busy week for Mike and I with tons of work, interviews, conferences, travel and an annoying case of tonsilitis. I spent most of the day today getting caught up on house stuff, work stuff, laundry, cleaning, etc and, of course, making dinner.
I marinated these pork chops in lite soy sauce, Worcestershire, lime juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, and honey for a few hours. Put them in an egg wash then dredged them in a panko crumb/corn meal coating. I browned them on each side in a skillet with a little bit of EVOO.
Yesterday for St. Patrick’s Day, since I had already made corned beef and cabbage, I decided to make a version of one of our other favorite meals inspired by Ireland- fish and chips. But, instead of chips I made some brown rice.
When we were sofa shopping last month we came across this little blackboard at one of the furniture stores. I thought it would be so cute to write menu’s on!
Here is a quick, healthy weeknight dinner recipe. I am trying to incorporate more seafood/fish into my diet which can be expensive but this recipe uses a can of crab meat (cheap!) and just a few frozen shrimp.
Time saver- cook your pasta (I used spinach fettucine) until it is about 70 percent done, then add broccoli.
Another quick weeknight dinner: Tilapia fillets lightly breaded, steamed broccoli with lemon juice and grated parm, and brown rice. One of my healthy eating goals is to eat more fish and seafood. So far, so good.
