Recipes for week of Oct 8th '18

This week is a little different. Last week I had planned to make all three of those meals and pulled out leftovers from the freezer, because my husband was back and we needed a bit more food. BUT as his jobs are always changing, he had to leave town sporadically so I had all this excess food that I had purchased. I decided to eat the leftovers since I had already pulled them out of the freezer and freeze the meat that I had purchased and plan to make two of the three meals next week (which is this week now). So you will see a repeat of two of the meals, because I didn’t get the chance to make them last week. Luckily, the ingredients that were purchased could last a full week without going bad - corn, peppers, etc. If you were going to do this, but didn’t want to freeze the meat, then I would have suggested to cook the meals and then freeze them for upcoming weeks. You cannot keep thawed meat in the fridge longer than 4-6 days.

Happy cooking!

Chickpea “chicken” salad:

I’m not really sure how this one will turn out. I may try it and then tweak it. I will update you once I make it. Plus it really annoys me that it is advertised that it is gluten free, sugar free, plant based - I mean obviously it is those things, because it is just beans and veggies. Anyways - I’ll keep you posted.

EDIT: This was ok. I wouldn’t make it again. I think I will be on the search for another recipe that has a bit more flavor and doesn’t require as much work. Be on the lookout.
