Lisa: What We're Eating: June 2012

Been busy eating and not posting.

I had the chance to get two free weeks of produce/grocery delivery from a new service in our area, so have been enjoying trying it out.

Here's what we've been eating.

-Crock-pot pulled pork on toasted French rolls with barbecue sauce
-Roasted carrots
-Roasted Yukon Gold potatoes
-Grilled Salmon (a weekly standard), cous cous and broccoli
-Pan-fried Pork Chops with Gravy - This comes together in less than 30 minutes with minimal prep, so it's a regular in the meal rotation.
-Sugar snap peas
-Roasted zucchini "coins" sprinkled cheese and broiled (per kids' request)
-Yogurt, fruit and granola "banana split"
-Home made granola with slivered almonds, pepitas, pecans, coconut oil, chia and shredded coconut
-Kale chips - first time making these, did it with sesame oil and salt, and kids loved them (as did I)
-Broccoli-cheese mini-quiches
-Strawberry-banana-spinach and strawberry-banana-kale green smoothies
-Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, pluots, tangerines

  1. Love the mini quiche idea! I've never been fond of big slices of quiche; delicious though they are, they are not appealing.

  2. Yes, loving the mini quiches. Easy way to use up cooked veggies. Made in a muffin pan.
