Chicken Cacciatore

Whole30, pg 334.  Probably mostly doubled this.  Or one and a halfed it.  Served with roasted potatoes and egg noodles.  Turned out pretty delicously.

Glorious Mac and Cheese


Did it pretty much this same way.  Used about 4c macaroni and 4/3c water.  Could have used maybe a smidge more water.

Pulled Pork


Yum.  That's about all I can say.

Made some apple slaw to go with it.  Cabbage, carrots, apples, kale.  Mixed up some apple cider vinegard, olive oil and salt and pepper to top it.  Added some slivered almonds too.  Pretty tasty.

Chicken Meatballs

Made these suckers again:


Doubled the meatballs again, and one-and-a-halved the sauce.  Turned out pretty good.  Spaghetti squash again.

Whole 30, pg 276. We doubled this. Waaaaay too oniony, but otherwise was quite good.

Stir fry steak and veg

Whole 30, pg 340. More or less followed the recipe, but used steak instead of chicken.  Mushrooms, green beans, peppers, no carrots. Didn't really use a sauce since we eere pressed for time but used tamari. Was simple but good.

Brats, Kebabs and Squash with Kale and Chard

Went a little crazy here.  Grilled some brats with mushroom, onion and tomato kebabs.  Plus some sweet potatoes.

Also made the butternut squash with kale and chard (whole30, pg 268).  We added some beets and kohlrabi as well since we had them, although they needed longer to bake.  The squash needed maybe 15 or so minutes.  Used lots and lots of greens.  Roughly doubled the seasonings for the greens.

Turned out pretty delicious.  The squash greens mix would be good with fried eggs or any number of things.

Chili Shrimp with Lemon Cabbage Slaw

Made Jackie's shrimp recipe.  Something like:

Partially butterfly shrimp, and push them down a bit with tails up.  Add salt, pepper, oil, chili powder.  Bake for a while at a good temperature.

Clearly lacking details but they are delicious.

Made the green cabbage slaw with lemon oil from whole30 (pg 282) to go with it.  Used green and red cabbage, carrots.  More or less doubled the slaw.

Burgers with Grilled and Sauteed Veg

Made some standard burgers and grilled sweet potatoes, corn, eggplant and peppers.

Also made some sauteed veg with red pepper sauce (Whole 30, pg 264).  Broccoli, mushrooms, yellow squash.  We made the red pepper sauce with basil instead of parsley since we had some.

The sauce was quite good and worked well with the sauteed vegetables.
