Since my $100 post was so popular (thanks for all your comments), I thought I would show what meals came from it.
Monday night we had yummy pork, spinach, and quinoa:
This is the first time I made quinoa (pronounced Keen-WA). It was very good. I would definitely make it again. It was pretty easy to make. Kind of like rice a roni.
Friday night was swimming rama with homemade peanut sauce and tofu. I plan to make more tofu dishes since we both love tofu and it's a little cheaper and healthier than meat. This peanut sauce recipe was the best peanut sauce I had outside of a restaurant. It's easily customizable. Tai thought there was too much garlic so I added a little more peanut butter, a little more lemon juice, a little sesame oil and it was perfect. Sorry this photo is a little blurry. It was the best one I could get. When I saw this pot roast recipe, I thought that sounds so yummy. I made it once about a week ago and I didn't like it. It came out greasy if you can believe that. I also didn't use thyme but a concoction of other herbs I had in my cupboard. I assumed that's why it wasn't yummy. So I made it again today. Not so yummy again. I added mushrooms this time because I had some laying about. But other than that I stuck to the recipe. But still greasy. Who knows what I'm doing wrong?
For the other days I made bbq pork and hamburgers. Nothing too exciting.
I'll probably go grocery shopping tomorrow so I'll show you what I got then.
