Food in Review 03/13 – 03/20

This week I had a pretty colorful and budget friendly menu! I spent about $55 at the grocery store and got a pretty good haul 🙂  I had a few staples at home to work with, but for the most part this was enough food for 2 for the majority of the week.



I make Skirt Steak Salad with Caramelized Pears, Pecans, Red Onion, and Pepitas with a Dijon Dressing.  The recipe is by Baker By Nature



I made Pinch of Yum‘s Ultimate Winter Bliss Bowl and added roasted turmeric chicken



Dinner was Feasting at Home’s Cuban Mojo Chicken that I made into a one pan, easy dish!



I had a potluck at my friends house so I did’t cook dinner, however I heavily adapted Merit and Fork’s Banana Bread recipe into cookies for a quick and easy breakfast for the next 5 days!



I ended up going to Quiro Arepas because I didn’t feel like cooking and met up with some friends 🙂


I made a Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese salad by Chelsea’s Messy Apron and added Basil Chicken Sausage



We went to brunch at Root Down and I got a delicious Pulled Pork Omelette with roasted potatoes and arugula


Saturday night I made a Turmeric Pork Skillet by Laura Vein that was super easy and quick



We went to Chipotle for a late lunch and I was not hungry till about 8pm so I threw together an egg scramble with a leftover Basil Chicken Sausage and field greens.


And that’s my weeks food in review! 🙂

      Of Course!

      The Chicken Mojo Dish by Feasting and Home sounds AMAZING, but when it’s a worknight and you are trying to get a meal on the table fast, I love to adapt recipes to make them simplier! I sliced the veggies including the sweet potatoes, bell peppers, and onion and placed them on the bottom of an 8×14 baking dish. I then added drumsticks on top on top of the veggies. I grated the citrus and put the pieces directly on the chicken, squeezed the oranges and limes over the entire dish, and threw the wedges into the pan. I seasoned the entire dish with salt, pepper, garlic, and cumin and placed about 5-7 bay leaves in the pan as well. I also omitted the wine from the dish and it turned out fine. I threw it all in at 375 degrees and cooked it for approximately 30-40 minutes. I checked it a few times to see how the veggies were cooking as well as the meat and it all finished cooking at about the same time!

      Now I am getting the ground off and running for my blog, I may keep better track of my recipe adaptations and post them within my weekly post! I hope you enjoy and feel free to follow me on instagram at grain_free_ for all my daily meals!
