So I changed the picture above only to show all of you what I got in my basket from bountiful this weekend. Now, the avacado frenzy was because I purchased the gaucamole packet for an additional $7.50. It is fun to see if we can use all the veggies by the time the next basket comes (2 weeks) It is totally worth your money, you get all of that for $16.50.
What am I recommiting to? making my own bread! I love home made bread it tastes so much better than store bought bread and it way better for you! I will have to post the recipe that I use a friend of mine gave me.

Warm Spinach Salad (like the one at Buca)

1 package or 3-4c Spinach
1/2 medium slivered purple onion
2-3t fetta or crumbled goat cheese
1c Cherry Tomatoes ( or sliced Tomatoes)
Light Creamy Balsamic Vinigrett Dressing( you can use the non creamy kind too)
2 shredded chicken breasts

I just add all the ingredients and then put the dressing in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm it and then serve.
pair it up with home made rolls listed below and enjoy!

Creamy Chicken Pesto Pizza

1 Neopolitan pizza dough recipe

1/2c Butter
1 1/2c Skim Milk
1/2c Grated parmesian cheese
1/2c Canned Parmessian Cheese
2-3T Pesto
2T White Flour
Shredded Chicken
Sliced Mushrooms
Slivered Purple Onion

Melt butter in sauce pan, then add milk and cheeses, use a whisk to blend together. This alfredo(with out the pesto) saves you the fat of the original recipe that calls for heavy whipping cream. It tastes the exact same too. I used the creamy pesto alfredo sauce as the cheese and just added it, then the chicken, mushrooms and onion and cooked at 400 for 20-25 minutes. It was super yummy!

The Best Meatloaf Yet

Ok I know I already posted the beef cakes, but this was by far the best meat loaf I have ever made by fluke.

1lb Ground Turkey
2-3 Carrots Grated by the Cheese Grater whole washed
1 zuccini grated with the cheese grater
1/2 med purple onion grated
1 egg
Mc Cormick Hamburger seasoning

Mix in a bowl. I just used the muffin tin again I feel like it turns out better like that! I cooked it in the oven on 400 for 30 minutes or until browned on top. It was so juicy that we didn't even use ketchup or bbq sauce.

I also made the oven fries again, I believe that recipe is below.
