Food Challenge 2.01

Boo. Sorry guys, but wordpress decided this post was not going to happen. It has deleted it three times. *sadface*

I spent $72.87. It was like an evil, hungry monster took over my body and forced me to buy all the groceries. The only thing that makes me feel better is we did host a dinner party and our church small group in the same week.

So, what did we eat:

Saturday night: we hosted a dinner party. On the menu was a pea crostini, spring green salads, chicken thigh osso bucco, mashed potatoes, roast asparagus, buttered peas and carrots, and carrot cake for dessert.

I forgot a picture of my food, but look at my awesome apron for hosting my dinner parties! So housewife of me. 

Sunday: swordfish, rice, and asparagus.

I hadn’t bitten in to this yet. This is just how Z. thinks plating looks. 

Monday: Slow cooker buffalo chicken with onions and steamed cauliflower. It was lazy and easy, which we needed since we both got home at 8:30.

Tuesday: Slow cooker orange chicken, white rice, and sesame cucumber salad.


Wednesday: I threw together a quick Asian swai, sesame zoodles, and white rice.


Thursday: this night we hosted small group. I made Korean pork bbq, fried rice, white rice, and sesame noodles. The sesame noodles were so easy and were a big hit. I’ll be adding them to my entertainment list.

Friday: Z. made me a special Friday shake, which was a nice switch!


Dinner, we had to rush since we had opera tickets. We threw together this zucchini cheesy breadsticks, which was a better idea then it ended up tasting. I’m looking forward to playing with the recipe a bit. A word of advice, when she says make them thin, make them thin. Trust me. Otherwise, you have egg-y breadsticks. Or quiche as I like to call it.
