The snow & cold had us inside meal prepping!  After playing in the snow this morning, we decided to enjoy staying cozy inside today and make an easy, crowd pleasing dinner that will give us plenty extra for the next few days. Quinoa tabbouleh (plus plain quinoa for my son), hummus, lots of crispy roasted veggies (Brussel sprouts, summer squash, & broccolini), and chicken piccata.

Love it when Sunday dinner doubles as meal prep! We we were in full swing holiday mode with another busy week ahead, I needed a dinner that was easy, crowd-pleasing, and would make for extra meals and snacks in the next few days. I was a woman on a mission! Vegan falafels, homemade hummus with a festive twist, quinoa and grilled organic chicken for the boys. Perfect!

Meal prepping is always a good idea.  Especially when the days are busy and everyone comes home hungry, having some vegetables, grains and meat ready to heat up is the easiest and fastest way to get dinner on the table. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to have my Mother-in-law who was visiting help me with meal prep.  My mother-in-law is a great cook and grew up in Italy so think olive oil, garlic and rosemary!  The house smelled amazing as we roasted lots of vegetables and grilled…

This may be my favorite new quinoa salad for Spring. The recipe is adapted from Food & Wine. It’s two types of quinoa mixed with caramelized onions, dried apricots, pistachios, arugula and the yummiest citrus vinaigrette!  The vinaigrette is mostly orange flavored with a touch of lemon, so it’s not too sweet and it’s so good! A little extra orange zest on top make it extra pretty. This is a front runner for my Easter table at the moment…

Something about the cold weather today motivated my husband and me to stay in a cook! Our favorite Mexican rice, simmered black beans, Mexican-spiced grilled chicken, tangy orange jicama slaw, tomato salsa, guacamole, and pineapple-glazed Brussel sprouts. Each dish was simple to make but since we made so much, it required both of us in the kitchen for a couple hours but it was worth it! There was something for everyone and extras for the next few days!

It’s a fried rice kind of day! It’s cold, rainy and I wanted something easy and cozy. Is there anything better than rice & veggies thrown in a pan and stir-fried with some seasoning? It’s always a crowd-pleaser in our house. The thing we love about fried rice is it’s so versatile.  I follow a basic “recipe” but really add in whatever we have in the fridge.  This is onions, broccoli, snow peas, carrots, and mushrooms all stir fried with brown rice.

My mother-in-law is a great cook and grew up in Italy so think olive oil, garlic and rosemary!  The house smelled amazing as we roasted lots of vegetables and grilled polenta.  And I had veggies and polenta at the ready for days!  At least I know what I want to make soon!

It’s a fun fiesta Meatless Monday! Mexican rice, simmered black beans, tangy orange jicama slaw, tomato salsa, avocado, pineapple-glazed Brussel sprouts, a dollop of Tofutti Brand sour cream & jalapeños. So yummy, and the best part is it was assembled using all the veggies we prepped yesterday!
