This was one of those weeks where there seems to be no time for cooking. At all. However, after about four days in a row of fast food and take out for breakfast and dinner, not to mention some serious bloating, I decided I needed some real food. (thank you "home supply store" attendant for bringing the bloat to my attention: "How old is your son? Oh and another on the way?" NO, but thanks for noticing my food baby.) Here's what I made this week. I went with two roasted "one dish" meals, which I find to be low maintenance and high flavor and one egg white dish for breakfast.
|Bacon wrapped chicken with Sweet Potatoes,Green Beans, and Rosemary ready for roasting. Just place peeled and halved or quartered sweet potatoes in the bottom of the casserole dish drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper and toss (I like to add a sprinkle of chili powder on my sweet potatoes at this point, but it's good with or without) . Next, wrap each chicken leg quarter in a slice of bacon and tuck in a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon underneath (you can skip the bacon if you want to reduce the fat here and it will still be good, but the bacon makes it great.) Sprinkle with pepper. Place chicken on top of potatoes, cover with foil and bake for about an hour or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced.|
|One hour later, ready to eat|
|The frittata recipe above wrapped in a flour tortilla with a side of bacon. Great if you have to take it to go. You can also reserve half of the frittata in the fridge, heat it and make it into a wrap the following day.|
