Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Sunday Food Prep

Yup.   It’s Sunday again … and that means prepping for next week’s dinners and lunches.   I added the beets to the mix this week and made a mini-broccoli salad.   I’m thinking about adding some grilled chicken to that one with french dressing.   (Tasty!)

I always feel like I should own stock in the Gladware company.   My fridge is packed with little containers.   I don’t miss the hassle and expense of Tupperware at all.

And, I am marinating some flank steak and zucchini for the grill:

We ended up having that for tonight’s dinner but the pictures didn’t get taken … it was GOOD.   So good that I forgot to snap a shot.  Ooops.

Now, I still have a big bag of kale that I want to do something different with later this week.   Any ideas?

  1. You’re so efficient! I’m lucky if I get the meals just planned for the week.

    I never thought about it until you mentioned Tupperware, but I’ll bet they are really hurting since Glad put out such cheap containers (which last pretty long)…plus you have the free ones that come with lunch meat!

    Flank steak has become one of my favorites lately…it’s so tender and tasty. Have a good week!

  2. Everything looks so delicious! I love zucchini on the grill. It is the best side for a juicy steak.

    For kale, I love this soup recipe. http://inherchucks.com/2012/01/08/sausage-white-bean-kale-soup/

    • I occassionally start the bike off to take it camping or up my very steep driveway. That’s about it. Text me your travel dates and plans so we can work something out. Maybe a short hike or something? Bill can trail run laps around us! LOL

      • Ugh. I should proofread. Duh. I take the bike when we go camping. Hope that makes sense.
