It's Winter. I'm taking 12 credits this semester. And, I work. It's a busier than usual week at my house. So, let's use the crock pot! This week's menu includes two soups to warm us up... and should be relatively easy to prepare with limited time. In planning the menu this week I browsed food gawker and came up with recipes from some other food blogs out there. I also "phoned a friend", actually we Skyped, for a recipe. I love hearing about others' go-to recipes..
salmon Patties and steamed broccoli (one of my go-to meals)
Jordan's go-to baked fish with veggies.
Goes well with white fish such as sole, tilapia, etc. Cut up a few medium sized tomatoes, one good sized zuchinni, chopped onion. throw in about half a can of chickpeas and throw it all in a baking dish, drizzle all over with olive oil, cumin (go heavy on the cumin!), paprika (also consider using turmeric, coriander, garlic, and/or fennel) and a little bit of cayenne pepper, cover and throw in the oven, 450° for about 35 min.
I mostly blog about dinner here, but thought I'd include a breakfast or snack recipe for a sweet, cinnamon quinoa. I'll probably try it sometime this week.
Have a great week everyone.
