Meal Ideas

Here are some easy meals you can use for lunch or dinner. I only cook for myself so I don't make extravagant meals. Eggs are my best friend ;)

I like to buy fresh salmon fillets when I go grocery shopping. So tasty and good for you.

Veggie burgers are a great meal when you need something quick. I'm not a vegetarian but they're really yummy. I've tried the Yves Vegan burgers but the Kirkland Garden Burgers are my favorite. The salad is spinach, PC Blue Menu swiss cheese, sugar snap peas, bell peppers, half a tomato, and Kraft Asian Sesame dressing.

Stir fries are another favorite of mine. So easy! Mushroom, carrots, peas, frozen veggie medley from Costco, bean sprouts, and chicken breast. Toss in some soy sauce and Mrs. Dash.

Another stir fry, served with brown rice. This is with beef instead of my usual chicken. The veggies are from Arctic Gardens. I like using the packages because then I don't have to buy the individual veggies.

Another stir fry: this is an orange chicken stir fry, found from a recipe card. (will post the recipe one day)

I've been really bad about eating veggies lately and was completely turned off by them so I came up with this. I love the Normandy style veggies from Costco. If I buy fresh veggies they just end up rotting in my crisper. I added the veggies into a pot with some water to steam it. I put about a teaspoon of the Better than bouillon and about the same of the soy sauce into the water and let it steam away!!! It was so tasty I think I'll stick to this for a while.

The mixings for eggs to be poured on top :) mmmmm

So last night I had thawed some chicken breast and I didn't feel like making a stir fry. I took a look in my cupboard and I saw the balsamic vinegar I got from my dad that I hadn't really used yet. I put about 1-2 tablespoons in a small bowl and mixed it up with an equal amount of olive oil. I put the 3 chicken breasts in a small casserole dish and seasoned them with salt and pepper, garlic powder, and my Oh So Onion seasoning. I then poured the oil and vinegar over them and moved the chicken around to get the oil underneath them so they didn't stick. I remembered I had minced garlic in the fridge so I sprinkled a little bit on top of each one. I also sprinkled rosemary on top too. Preheat your oven to 350F and cover the dish with aluminum foil. I cooked them for 20 minutes and checked on them, then I let them cook for about 5 minutes longer and turned off the oven but left them in there while my potatoes and broccoli were still cooking. (Ovens vary so make sure you check that they're cooked completely!) I had added some water to the dish so the chicken would be moist, so I drained a bit of that out when I checked on them after the 20 minutes.
