Eats for the Week: 12/13/09

Last Sunday I prepared Slow Cooker Beef Chili with Cornbread Topping, then proceeded to eat it practically every day for the rest of the week. If it hadn’t been my very first slow cooker meal, I would’ve cut the recipe in half, but I was afraid I’d ruin the dish.

Not this week. These recipes are getting cut down to sensibly sized portions for a single person. It’s frustrating looking at a menu of mouthwatering dishes and feeling uninspired to prepare them because you don’t want to waste the food you already have. Yeah, I could’ve frozen the chili, but I was also feeling a little lazy too. A mountain of leftovers provides the perfect excuse not to cook.

And, uh, just an update on the gym situation. I went! Three days! Although I’ve no doubt lost muscle, I haven’t gained any weight. I guess that’s not so bad. This week’s menu plan is neither healthy nor unhealthy, but I’ll do what I can to modify the recipes to make them more weight loss friendly by integrating tips from 10 Inexpensive Steps to Healthier Recipes by Karen Datko from Cheap Healthy Good.

Sunday and Monday – Cuban Braised Beef & Peppers

Tuesday and Wednesday – Chicken Stew (Photo #6 was submitted by me.)

Thursday and Friday – T-Bone Steak with Mushrooms & Onions and Brown Rice

Saturday – Salmon Cakes and Potato Latkes
