Weekly Menu #8

Sorry for the somewhat unappetizing presentation… most of these dinners were made on the fly after late nights at work and I was really really hungry – good news they are easy to whip up!

1. Skinny Chicken Enchiladas 

This is one of my favorite recipes… pop it in a slow cooker and it basically does all the work for you! Add a few tasty additions (ie cilantro, avocado and cheddar cheese) and you have a tasty and healthy dinner option! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do (PS I recommend topping it with the green Tabasco sauce… SO GOOD).

2. Flank Steak with Horseradish Relish

I did my grocery shopping late Monday night (major fail… never do that) and I had to improvise a lot of items on my list that were missing in the store.  For this menu I had to sub flank steak for thin cut rib-eye steaks… super flavorful but much a much fatter cut.  The relish is killer (even without the horseradish which I omitted for the hubby’s portion), and I served it with white sweet potatoes and Greek yogurt (a good sub for sour cream). Also good news – 300 cals per serving (the original recipe that is)!

3. Orecchiette with Sausage, Chard and Parsnips 

Super easy! Just chop everything up, saute and mix with pasta and grated Parmesan!
