Eating Lately

Simple, comforting, and sometimes healthy, our at home meals in 2013 have followed the precedent for no-fuss that we set early in the year. I’m happy to say that in a lot of ways, we’ve tried to slow down to appreciate the small things. I’ve also tried, in between events and work, to get better about meal planning and making simple but complete meals. As a result, we’ve been eating a lot of meals that I wouldn’t even call recipes, things that are really satisfying and delicious but without lists of ingredients and steps.

yogurt marinated pork

lentil sloppy joe's

buffalo butternut squash mac and cheese

{Buffalo Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – made with buffalo sauce, butternut squash, Greek yogurt, and blue cheese and topped with cheddar. . . }

spicy ginger chicken

{Ginger Chili Chicken, inspired by a recipe in Carla Hall’s Cooking with LoveThis might be the first time I made something too spicy, even for me!}

kale

{Kale! In smoothies, chips, omelets, chili, soups, and salads, I can not get enough of this healthy, hearty green. I heart kale.}

All the while, I have been thinking my cooking this year has been pretty basic and uninteresting, but writing it out makes me think it’s not too bad, after all.

Have you been keeping up with your New Year’s Resolutions?

    The ginger chicken looks so good! I didn’t make any resolutions because I never end up keeping them.

    your cooking is quite impressive, (especially compared to my serious lack of it lately!) I love the sounds of the pork loin and that marinade.
