Hey everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Here, well, the weekend has been okay. But each week is a new start, so hopefully this next one can go better! One upside: This meal prep turned out pretty delicious! So let’s get right into it!
Our snacks were pretty basic this week: Our regular Cookie Dough Protein Balls and my grapes with cheese. Our salads were close to the same as normal, with one exception. I made some extra wild rice blend and added that to my salads. It turned out to be a great addition!
We were running low on cinnamon bread and out of breakfast burritos, so those got made as well. They really make our breakfasts filling and a great start to the day!
Now on to the main dishes! As I said in last week’s meal prep post, Draz really liked the General Tso’s Chicken, so he requested that I make more of that. I made a bit of a misstep through….I thought it needed a side and we had some extra green beans. So I found an Asian green bean dish to make with it! Great right? Well…the green bean dish by itself was great. But I packaged it with the General Tso’s….not so great.
Lesson learned! Next time if I want to make a side dish for it I will package it separately. The sauce for each mixed together and it was not a great addition. I will be making the green bean dish again though, because it was tasty!
I also made Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Skillet, Spinach & Mushroom Lasagna, and Clean Eating Balsamic Pork Chops with Balsamic Brown Butter Asparagus! The pork chop and asparagus dish is a repeat and one that we always enjoy.
The other two recipes were new. I really liked both of them! That being said, Draz and I both think that the lasagna rolls we made before were a bit better, so we will probably be sticking with that one instead. The Chicken and Wild Rice Skillet was delicious and very filling! I think we will be repeating this one at some point!
