New week, new discoveries…

Hello!  We decided to make our list today (saturday) because we will be busy with Super Bowl sunday funday festivities tomorrow.  So here is our weeks menu.  The “new discoveries” I was referring to in the title is we found a couple new websites with more recipes and a ton of information.  Here are the links to those…

Here is our menu….

While it is a beautiful February day here in sunny, warm Houston we decided to grill out and enjoy the weather.  So, we are grilling steaks.  Sam is having a baked potato (his cheat food) for a side and I am having Creamed Kale and Spinach as a side.  The ingredients for my side:  1 bunch kale (center stems removed) and fresh spinach, 3 tbspn unsalted natural butter, 1 cup heavy cream, nutmeg.  Directions:  Melt butter in large skillet (medium-low heat), add chopped kale and spinach and cover to slightly steam it (about 4-5 minutes).  Check kale and stir to cook evenly, making sure they do not burn at bottom of pan.  When kale is limp, pour cream all over and turn heat to medium for 1-2 minutes.  When cream is bubbling, reduce heat so that it just slightly simmers uncovered.  When it is tender and cream is thickened, season to taste with sea salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Serve warm and enjoy!

We are also doing appetizers before our steak dinner.  We decided on a recipe from Food Renegade… bacon wrapped sweet potatoes!  Here is the recipe… yumm… http://www.foodrenegade.com/bacon-wrapped-sweet-potato-bites/

Burgers and bacon sausage slaw.  Same recipes from previous week.  It is such a quick, easy, delicious meal… we eat it a lot!

Santa Fe Chicken Foil Baked.  Ingredients:  Chicken tenders, green pepper, red pepper, onion, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, salsa, lettuce, sour cream (optional), cheese (optional).   Directions:  preheat oven to 400ºF. FOLD up all sides of each of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil to form 1-inch rim; spread some coconut oil to foil. Add chicken, peppers sliced into thin strips, onion in strips, sprinkle each foil pack with the spices, top with 2 scoops of salsa. Bring up foil sides; fold to make 4 packets. Place in 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is done. Cool 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets. Serve warm on a bed of lettuce, sour cream, cheese. Enjoy!

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry. Ingredients and instructions for this are from previous week menu as well.

Baked chicken breasts and bacon and onion brusselsprouts. Use any chicken breast baking recipe. I salt and pepper my chicken breasts, put them in an oven safe dish. Add some butter (3-4 tbspns) and top with basil and italian seasoning. Bake at 400 until chicken is done. Brusselsprouts are the same recipe from previous posts.
