My Week in Meals - #13

I like watching Giada De Laurentiis on Everyday Italian (Food Network), but have never tried any of her recipes. I've included two to try this week, a fish and a pasta. The rest are just good old standards in our house. I'm also re-committing to have lots of fruits and vegetables on hand for snacks. I'll stick to things that are in season right now; pears, oranges, clementines, grapefruit, apples, pineapple, broccoli and a few things that aren't; cucumbers, peppers, carrots, avocados.

1. Chili, Cornbread and Salad

2. Penne with Spinach Sauce, Bread

3. Beef Stroganoff w/ Egg Noodles, Green Veggie

4. Tilapia with Citrus Bagna Cauda, Brown Rice

5. Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables (parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, etc . . .), Rolls, Fruit Salad (bananas, oranges, blueberries, raspberries, pears, grapes)

That sounds yummy. These days I can only eat something once before I never want to see, smell, or hear about it again. I'll have to wait until I'm past this stage to try any more of your yummy recipes. Keep them coming!

I used a recipe for Tilapia that said to bake it in scant olive oil and a little bit of juice from an orange. It tasted fine but I didn't like to moistness. Think I'll try frying next time. Mango salsa with it was great though!

I make a similar beef stroganoff to this,just more fattening. Have you ever made it in the slow cooker, Erin? I'll have to try it that way.
