Last Week’s Meal Overview, Seared Tilapia w/ Spicy Mint Gremolata

Another gem from the two-month meal plan:

Seared Tilapia with Asparagus and Spicy Mint Gremolata, 4.5 out of 5

I was sort of surprised at how much I liked this. The mint gremolata went perfectly with the seasoned tilapia. Want to eat it again. This very moment.

Last Week’s Meal Overview, Garlic-Ginger Chicken & Salisbury Steak

As part of my two-month meal plan, here are a couple of the recipes from last week’s experiments. (Remember that they only get a 5/5 if they really blow our minds):

Dirty P’s Garlic-Ginger Chicken Thighs by Guy Fieri, 3 out of 5

Tasted like some sort of mix between typical teriyaki and my mother-in-law's Filipino chicken adobo --- I'd rather just have her adobo.

Salisbury Steak With Mushrooms, 4.75 out of 5

We added a TON of Worcestershire sauce and cut the mushrooms up tiny since Jordan has this mental thing about eating fungus. Made parmesan-infused mashed potatoes as a side. Enough for leftovers and it tasted even better the next day. Jordan agrees.

Last Week’s Meal Overview, Curry Chicken Fingers & Chicken “Pot Pie”

A couple weeks ago I confessed to creating a meal plan schedule to save myself the stress of deciding on and shopping for meals. Here are a couple winning recipes from the last week (the only reason they don’t get 5 out of 5 is because I’m saving the 5 rating for something that literally blows my mind):

Chicken Fingers with Curried Ketchup, 4.75 out of 5

This made our house smell so good, it was so easy to make, and the taste was phenomenal.

Rachael Ray’s Creamy Chicken and Mushroom One-Pot with Pot Pie Toppers, 4.75 out of 5

Left out mushrooms, subbed carrots for parsnips and 1% milk for cream. Jordan added lime juice to his. Still craving this. Was so sad when the soup was all gone.
