This week we have a good combination of new recipes and standard foods that I don't really need a recipe to make. December means a lot more use of the oven.
vegetable bean soup (December Everyday Food) with spinach salad
slow cooker garlic chicken with cous cous (December Everyday Food)
broiled salmon and green beans
spaghetti and veggies (zucchini, corn and diced tomatoes) and pesto with spinach salad
fritatta: potatoes, spinach, tomatoes with black beans
Frittatas are one of my favorite go-to dishes when I need to round out a menu. Also good for using up any extra vegetables we might have around. They're simple, quick and as far as I'm concerned, anything can go in them.
I would love a suggestion from a reader (is anyone out there?) for something to jazz up the green beans side with the salmon... while I love them with a little butter, black pepper and salt, but sometimes you just need to shake things up.
