Quesadilla Night

Tonight I was on my own for dinner, and I made a big batch of quesadillas. This is one of my favorite recipes, and is originally adapted from this recipe for Fajita Quesadillas at Remember my prep bowls from this weekend!? Well tonight I put them to good use! All I had to do … Continue reading

Teriyaki Kabob Feast

After a brief hiatus, the grill-master was back at it again tonight. Meanwhile, I was inside assembling kabobs! Remember Sunday’s prep bowls?

While the kabobs … Continue reading

Prep Day!

First I dipped each strip into a bowl containing egg substitute, honey mustard, and minced garlic, and then dipped … Continue reading

Saturday morning we … Continue reading

Polka Dot Stew (vegetarian)

Two new ingredients made an appearance in my kitchen tonight. Not long ago I found this box of Israeli Couscous at Trader Joe’s and have been looking for a recipe to use it in. I love Israeli Couscous, but have never cooked with it myself. It has such a fun texture to bite into. The recipe … Continue reading
