I hope you guys enjoyed the (killer) tofu recipe last week! I’ve been having dreams about it, I enjoyed it so much! Hopefully some of the meals we have planned for this week will be just as dream inducing!
Rachel posted this recipe for Slow-Cooker Sausages With Sauerkraut and Potatoes on her own Menu Monday post last week, and I printed it out faster than you can say… well, “Slow-Cooker Sausages With Sauerkraut and Potatoes”, I guess? I may substitute rye bread for pumpernickel, but that’s about it. I am SO EXCITED for this recipe! Just sad I can’t enjoy a good, German beer with it. I’ll have to just settle for living vicariously through Dave/shoving my nose into the beer bottle in the meantime.
Chicken Jambalaya – I’m excited to make this again since we just stocked up on chicken breasts (I use that cut of chicken for pretty much all recipes), and I only needed to buy maybe one or two additional ingredients. Woot!! This is still the only Sandra Lee recipe I’ve made – my opinion of her making things out of other things unnecessarily to cut corners still stands.
And for a little something healthy – Lemon Orzo Salad with Asparagus and Tomatoes. AKA – more reasons I LOVE Pinterest! The recipe is from A Big Mouthful, which I suggest you check out just for the stunning food photography. Dave has made something similar to this before from his Heart Healthy cookbook, with cucumbers and olives I think… I wasn’t a huge fan of that one, so we’ll see how this goes! I may also make this the day before so it’s ready to eat cold.
Do you have a go-to healthy recipe? While I don’t usually sub out ingredients for healthier alternatives – because what’s the fun in that – I do try to incorporate at least one healthy, non-meat meal a week into our menu.
