How did my first week of internet meal planning go? Pretty well! I stuck with the plan and cooked more than I normally would have.
I made the pickles but haven’t tried them yet. They were really easy though.
I made the granola bars yesterday and they are great! I doubled the recipe and made them in a 9×13 pan. I added about 1/4 cup flax seed meal and used regular sized chocolate chips but followed the recipe otherwise. They are really sweet. They almost taste like dessert so I’d probably cut down on the honey a bit next time around.
I didn’t make the Kung Pao Chicken because I realized I don’t have oyster sauce and the internet tells me that’s an essential ingredient.
I’m planning to make pizza for dinner tonight but if I don’t get around to it, we’ll have leftovers. Last night I made tortellini with roasted eggplant and Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs and we have a ton leftover. I just chopped up and roasted two eggplants with olive oil, salt and pepper and then added it to the tortellini and meatballs. Super easy. Sam picked around the eggplant though and just said “more cheese” repeatedly.
Aaron is always a fan of pasta and meatballs.
