Took a quick trip to the beach this weekend, away from the computer and everything.
But, now getting back in gear and thinking about meals this week! Here are some ideas from what I have done over the past week…
Mr. Cyclist made some chicken drumsticks with a delicious rosemary marinade. I made some cheesy cauliflower to go with it.
It’s a good meal to have when you get tired of chicken breast meat. And the cheese cauliflower reminds me of a richer pasta dish!
Shrimp and Grits:
Nice mood lighting, hah!
No, this is not health food. But, it is not that bad. I had never had shrimp and grits before at home either, so it was a nice change. And, some sauteed zucchini as the side.
Pistachio Crusted Fish:
This is one of my favorite ways to cooks fish. First, coat it with a homemade honey mustard, and then as if you are breading it, coat the fish with crushed pistachios and extra spices. Love it.
Ginger salad to go with it:
Used iceberg lettuce just because Mr. Cyclist requested it for authenticity. But, added some color with carrots, red onion, and beets. The dressing was something we found from Costco. It is almost identical in flavor to dressings you get at restaurants. Highly recommend.
And made some kale with turkey sausage and a sweet potato last night, but that was not worthy enough to make it to the page of newer and inventive dinners.
Happy Hump Day!
