family dinner

Monday: Pasta Primavera. We wanted something light so I tossed some campanelle pasta with sautéed asparagus, yellow peppers, and grape tomatoes with a little parmesan, olive oil and lemon juice

Tuesday: Honey Mango Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Lime-Ginger Carrot Salad (salad only). The only flaw with this meal was I didn’t buy a large enough pice of salmon, because everyone wanted more. I used a mango balsamic vinegar and substituted the Dijon for some mango orange juice. I also used lime olive oil for the salad.

Wednesday: Carnitas Extravaganza. My sister was over for dinner so I guess I could use that as an excuse for making an absurd amount of food, buuuuuuuut…. that’s not really the case. We had carnitas, rice, skillet corn, pico de gallo, and scorched peppers & onions.

Friday: Sliders with Potato Salad. Idk why I keep trying to foist my potato salad off on my family because ALL the kids hate it but HONESTLY their loss! It’s just potatoes, sour cream, bacon and chives (so like… a baked potato). I also made a salad? slaw of red cabbage, radish, and carrot a lemon-ginger-garlic dressing (similar to the one from Tuesday, I was just out of limes).
