Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s meal prep! I’ve been keeping it pretty simple lately, focusing on budget-friendly meals, utilizing items from our freezer and making sure to only cook as much as we can eat in a week.
This week I made a couple new recipes and they turned out great! So without further delay, here is this week’s meal prep! Enjoy!
This week Boyfriend actually made a request, so we are having spaghetti! I’m trying my hand at recipe development, so this sauce is a brand-new recipe. While I have improvised and created sauce recipes before, this was my first attempt at recording it while cooking. As such, it still needs some tweaking…but it turned out great (if a bit thick) and filled with veggie-goodness! (It did make a lot of sauce, but if there is some left over we can freeze it or make some more pasta)
I made Balsamic Brown Butter Asparagus as a side for these. Check out the recipe below!
That’s it for this week! I’m really enjoying trying to create my own recipes, so expect this to be the first of many! Hopefully!
Have any of you tried creating your own recipes from scratch? Any tips for a newbie like me? I would love to hear from you!
I honestly don’t have a huge amount to say for this week. I made a few new recipes, all of which turned out delicious! This week was a week of firsts…First time cooking with mushrooms and first time cooking with pizza dough. I’m a little behind on my skills, huh?
Now on to the meal prep! Make sure to check out the new recipe at the bottom!
That’s it for the week! I’m having a lot of fun trying out new recipes right now. Mixing it up is really making my meal prep so much more enjoyable! Do you do anything to make your meal prep fun or more enjoyable? I love cooking, but hours in the kitchen can get a little monotonous. Trying out new recipes adds some excitement for me!
