Is anyone else totally ready for Spring? I feel like the warm weather is trying to make it’s way here for good, and I’m loving it! I went for a walk with a friend today, and it was absolutely beautiful-60 degrees and sunny!
Now let’s get to the eats!
Sunday: Zoodles with ground turkey spaghetti sauce
I used this recipe from Little Spice Jar for the spaghetti sauce but added ground turkey for some added protein. I used the crockpot like the recipe called for, but you could make it over the stove too. However, I do think cooking it long and slow is the way to go to get the most out of the flavor. I also cooked up some zucchini noodles, and topped it all with parmesan cheese. Delicious!
Monday: Leftover Zoodles
Leftovers from Sunday since I was headed to my sister’s for our weekly girl’s night (and sometimes her husband who pretends like he is not watching The Bachelor but really is.) I really do enjoy cooking, but it’s so nice to have leftovers for days like this.
Tuesday: Spicy Tuna Cakes from Nom Nom Paleo
I feel like term “tuna cake” always sounds unappetizing, but I promise they taste good (if you like tuna!). I typically make up my own recipe and throw a bunch of things together and David always loves them, however I was ready to try a new recipe. I found one by Nom Nom Paleo that included sweet potatoes, and I am alway sold on anything that includes sweet potatoes. I loved these wayyyy more than the ones that I typically throw together, but David was not a fan. I feel like he is going through a phase where he loves sweet potatoes, but not when combined with other foods. (Example #1. The sweet potato quiche last week. He thought it was good, but said the sweet potatoes should be separate from the eggs. Example #2: Sweet potato tuna melts from the other week. He liked them…but ate the tuna separate from the sweet potato base. I hope this phase ends soon because I love sweet potatoes combined with everything!)
I made these turkey burgers several years ago, and was reminded of them when I was flipping through my cookbook last week. They are super simple, and have a really good flavor. To go along with the Indian theme, I roasted up some cauliflower in some indian spices. We both liked the turkey burgers (David said he would still prefer a beef burger…shocker. 😉 ), and we both LOVED the cauliflower. It was a good change from my normal coconut oil and sea salt. This meal did not photograph well, so no photo to show. Sorry!
Thursday: Spiralized sweet potato eggs in a hole
I saw a photo of this the other day, but with no recipe, so I decided to try it out on my own. We spiralized a couple small sweet potatoes, and then I cooked themin a little coconut oil and salt until they started to get soft. I then used a spoon to make three holes in the spiralized potatoes, and cracked an egg into each one and added salt and pepper. I put a lid on the pan and let the eggs cook. I really enjoyed this meal, and so did David…but he still ate the eggs and sweet potatoes separate. Ha!
Friday: Squeaky Clean Chicken and Veggie Bake from Fed and Fit
This was so easy and so good! You literally just throw everything into a baking dish and then stick it in the oven. It is also customizable to whatever veggies you have on hand. I used cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, a few random brussel sprouts we still had and then a handful of cherry tomatoes. This recipe is a keeper. Yum!
Saturday: Leftover Tikka Masala
Leftover Tikka Masala had been in the freezer from the other week, so I pulled it out for an easy Saturday night dinner. We paired this with a redbox movie, and had a relaxful night in.
I hope y’all have a wonderful week and eat some delicious food!
