I was planning on beans and corn bread, but we got to go see our friends that we haven't seen in a month. I asked dh to cook some potatoes and thaw out some pulled pork. Apparently dh has neaver baked potatoes and so he was working on other things and though that he could turn on the oven 15 min before we got home and have everything ready a few mints after we got home. Lucky he looked up directions for baking potatoes and realized he didn't have enough time so we picked up qudoba.

This week in our produce basket, some of the things we got were a very large spaghetti squash, eggplant, mushrooms, and fresh basil. I sauteed the mushrooms, eggplant, an onion, and the fresh basil with 2 pounds of ground beef. I then threw the mixture into the crockpot, along with a very large jar of Ragu sauce from Sam's Club, and added some extra seasoning (I always doctor the canned stuff up more ).

Around dinner time, I cooked up the spaghetti squash in my instant pot (this is one of THE BEST instant pot hacks - it saves SO MUCH TIME!!!). Not everyone in my family likes spaghetti squash, so I also cooked up some red lentil pasta for those that didn't want the squash with their meat sauce.

In the past, I haven't liked eggplant very much, but this is definitely a very good way to use it! It absorbed all the flavor of the meat sauce, and since I had chopped it up in smaller chunks, it really blended in with the sauce well. I still have another eggplant left, so I will have to figure out what else to do with that one.

We did this without turkey two nights ago!

Today we poha. There's not really a translation for that. It's this flat rice we buy dry and then soak before using. Then we fry onions and veggies, add the poha, cashews and rainsins, turn off the heat and season to taste. So easy I can make it while feeling sick!

This looks really interesting. I'm going to stop into the Indian market sometime this week and if I find poha may I ask you more about how to prepare it?

Schnitzel, green beans and sauteed onions. Also spaghetti squash to round things out.

Littlest had fun loading her schnitzel onto skewers while singing the Schnitzel Truck song (from Hoodwinked). Whatever gets that kids to eat!
