One day batch cooking - I finally did it! And I have to say, it was awesome. I had something significant to show for my effort. And I am not going to have to worry about cooking for a while. Unintended bonus: I've already done the dinner dishes for 16 meals!
Salmon Patties (canned salmon, sauteed onion and green peppers, breadcrumbs, mustard, curry powder, salt, eggs. Mix and cook in pan like hamburger patties.)
Quinoa Cakes (cooked quinoa, eggs, parmesan, salt, breadcrumbs, garlic, minced onion, green onion. Mix and cook in pan for 5 minutes per side.)
Quinoa Cake Mix (same ingredients as above minus the eggs. when ready, thaw, add eggs, fry.)
Quinoa, Kale, Garlic Saute (cooked kale, frozen kale, garlic. to serve, saute frozen pkg 10-15 min.)
Rice Pilaf (saute onions and garlic, add jasmine and wild rice, add water and chicken stock. cook.)
Chicken Divan (using half of the rice pilaf)
Chicken Enchiladas (saute onions and peppers, then chicken, roll with cheese in corn tortillas, top with green salsa, top with cheese)
Roasted Brussels Sprouts (slice in half, add olive oil, salt and pepper. mix well. roast 400' for 40 minutes.)
Homefries (peel and cube potatoes. add olive oil, salt and pepper. mix well, roast 400' for 40 minutes, or until browned.)
Roasted Garbanzo beans with fennel (same as recipe, only use fresh fennel in place of the fennel seeds and omit broccolini)
This should be 16 meals for our family of 5. I'm also going to make some granola and I make fresh sourdough bread and yogurt weekly. I also have organic mac n cheese with hotdogs, udon, and egg scrambles, or pancakes to throw in last minute, as needed.
