Oh sorry about the copyright issue. I decided to re-write it in my own words and post it here. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Did your family like the koftas?



Beef and Sweet Corn Koftas
1 small bunch cilantro (coriander leaves), chopped
1lb lean ground beef (500 g)
2 TBSP curry powder (or to taste)
2 carrots, grated
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Mix all ingredients well in a bowl reserving a little cilantro for garnish. Divide and form the mixture into 24 meatballs (koftas).
Place koftas in a baking dish with space between each meatball. Spray with cooking spray and bake 24-30 mins or until cooked through.
Garnish with reserved cilantro.

I am struggling with dinner. I think part of it is someone always makes a comment about not liking what I am making and we are all just bored of food.

I like the make your own salad idea, a few of my kids would love that.

I didn't read the whole thread, but I'm really struggling with dinner. It's SO hot! And the humidity where I live in the highest it's been (by a huge amount) in 45 years. We don't have air conditioning. We don't have a grill. All meals are GFDFSFCF, and need to contain meat.

Ideas?

Chicken salads. The chicken can be pan fried, or you can bake it early in the morning/on a cooler day and set it aside for dinner. We do a lot of them in the summer. I set out a bunch of toppings (fruits, vegetables, chickpeas, seeds, nuts, etc) so everyone can create their own on a bed of mixed greens.

I get you on the hot and humid and yucky and no ac!

Gluten, dairy, soy and what else free I am sorry I don't remember. Corn?

This week we have done
http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Keto-Lo...n-Beef-2476317
This one took longer for me to make than it says but it was good.

http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Lazy-Pad-Thai-1430899
This is one of my Staples if I can I add in mung bean sprouts and snow peas to it. I found super thin rice noodles that soak up faster.

http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Slow-Co...hicken-2460855
This was last night I did it in my instapot, it was a bit too sweet for me but the girls loved it.

http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Pork-_-...ir-Fry-1614748
This has become one of my weekly meals this summer. The way this ends up looking in our house is brown a lb of pork, toss in some garlic, ginger and book a bit more. Toss two bags of shreaded cabbage ( I can grab these for the same price as the cabbage frequently) on top and add in fish sauce and coconut amenos and what oever other veggies I am adding in.

Wr have been eating lots of tacos and taco salad because it is easy for me.

I made beans and rice in one pot last night. I added 2 c dry rice (with veg broth instead of water) to a large pot along with two cans rinsed black beans (three would be better for that much rice), about a c of salsa (a can of rotel would be good), chopped onion, and some soy chorizo. I cooked it as long as the rice needed to be cooked. We topped with cilantro, cheese, and sour cream. It wasn't super, but it was fast, cheap, and easy.

bananacake I do instant pot meals..I feel like I remember you in the IP threads?

pasta and meat sauce in the ip. (gluten free) brown beef, add pasta sauce and water cook 5minutes.

tonight we had pasta salad (made in the ip) and pan fried fish and zucchini with garlic and fresh gardening tomatoes.

I do fajita bowls with the ip. I cook the chicken and then come back in 35 minutes (when it has depressurized a bit) quick release and take the chicken out and add I to a frying pan. Add rice to ip and some bone broth and water and then cook that up in 5min high pressure. I add cooked beans cumin, chili powder, garlic and salt to the frying pan and toss until well mixed. I eat it over salad greens to reduce my grains with fresh tomatoes the rest of the family eats with rice.

All requires some heat but no oven and the stove top is only on for 15min tops.
