My version of a Greek bowl: Greek meatballs, yellow dill rice, Greek marinated salad (cuke, olive, red onion, chickpeas, artichokes, feta in a lemon vinaigrette), dill yogurt sauce, crumbled feta.

: tu I usually use tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes in meals like this. I don't like tomatoes, but sauce is okay.

I love Greek food. Lemon, oregano, dill, feta are some of my most favorite flavors. I still need to perfect my dill yellow rice. I'm not sure why I can't get the texture right although the flavor was better this time. I wonder if I need to bloom the turmeric - maybe it needs to cook a little first so it doesn't give a chalky-like texture.

I forgot to post anything from last week. This week we have one person having their wisdom teeth out so menus are going to be soft the second half of the week!


Monday - our annual Christmas dinner out
Tuesday - Creole pork chops, rice, asparagus
Wednesday - Crockpot chicken in bone broth (hopefully falling apart), baked potato, zucchini
Thursday - pancakes, eggs, sausage, cheesy hashbrowns
Friday - lemon pepper tilapia, broccoli cheddar rice, beets
Saturday - ham and potato soup (I made up a version two weeks ago that was incredibly yummy - I can share the recipe if anyone wants it)
Sunday - roast and carrots, mashed potatoes, green beans, gf gravy, layered salad with parmesan peppercorn ranch

Well, tonight I'm not sure as my daughter's making something later and hasn't told me yet. Tomorrow night I'm still not cooking, tomorrow is my son's wedding so it'll be wedding food for dinner!! I'm super excited (And I've also been baking all weekend to help get food together for it)

Tonight is Mahi-mahi with Thai Coconut Curry Sauce with the Coconut Rice from this recipe, and Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus. I also made this Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake because DD's boyfriend and youth leader are coming over for dinner.
