power cooking

Although I did finally make it to the grocery store on Saturday, I never got around to cooking any of the meals I had planned to prepare.

Yesterday after work I got busy and made 4 dinners. Three new recipes, pinned from Pinterest, and one beef roast made the usual way.

I've been looking for low carb stuff to help the hubby out. We try to eat at least 3 carb free or low carb dinners a week. This is a challenge as we do love our rice and pasta around here! Some of the paleo recipes that seem to be all the rage are actually quite good and easy to make.

So what did I make? Well, I made a Mongolian beef that is now in the freezer ready to go in the crockpot. I went ahead and cooked a cashew chicken filled with lots of broccoli. I made a sweet potato and chicken stew that was quite tasty. And, I roasted that big hunk of beef in a red wine and mushroom sauce.

Bam. Meals made for the week!

Off to read the paper and see what the world is up to today. Enjoy your Tuesday.

I need to do more of this...found a site where the owner made up crockpot meals and freezer bagged them -- pop one in the crockpot in the morning and bam! dinner by five.

Thanks for making me remember!
