“steak”, “mashed potatoes”, and chips 🙂
So tonight I decided to make the husband happy…and healthy 😉 I’m a very sneaky wife mwahahah! All vegetables tonight!
Instead of steak I marinated portobello mushrooms in Worcestershire sauce all day and then grilled them.
For the mashed potatoes I took frozen cauliflower and microwaved it for 7 minutes (til thawed) drained te water and put it in my food processor with some italian herbs! Voila! Faux mashed potatoes that would fool any child or husband (but I think some cheese would be a really good tasty add in if you’re feeding kiddos).
Instead if classic frozen chips I chopped up a sweet potato, steamed them for 25 minutes along with the broccoli (and 6 eggs for lunches this week). Then I sautéed them in some leftover Worcestershire sauce in a nonstick pan with no extra oil to crispy them up.
Yummy yummy! I think I could feed this to my little 10 year old brother and even he would like it. Massive thumbs up from the hubby tonight 🙂
Zesty Bulgar Salad!
So what tasty things did we end up eating this week? We had some Zesty Bulgar Salad, Moroccan Mushroom Steak, and a veggie curry 🙂
Zesty Bulgar Salad
Monday was the Zesty Bulgar Salad. A huge hit with the husband! This one is definitely going in the cookbook. Andy forgot to buy radishes but it was still amazing! Very refreshing, simple and quick. A great summer salad 🙂
The man with his steak 🙂
Tuesday was our 2 year anniversary of our Alaska Wedding so I made him a Moroccan Mushroom Steak. It has dried apricots! I added green beans on the side and for mine (not the biggest meat lover) I had an eggplant steak which was perfect. A warm, hearty healthy dinner that was much approved 🙂

Wednesday I made a Veggie Curry. I didn’t even realize that currys were usually meat based but hey-ho, you live and you learn eh? Well regardless of what is “normal” this curry turned out to be pretty awesome. Ben and Andy both liked it and we had enough leftover for our next meal. It is also so cheap being mainly potatos, onions, and spices; it is a great meal for lots of people or a big family without breaking the bank at all 🙂
Veggie Curry 2.0 😉
The next two meals were eaten on the go while we were touring around Dover England. Subway for me, chippy for the boys 😉 When we got back we got to sit down to a big plate of curry once again, this time I added some peas into it (i forgot them the first time, hehe) which made it even healthier and added lots of color. Also, a side salad with Greek Yogurt as dressing. Yummy, healthy, cheap, and so easy!
Yummy tasty cheap food! Also I made the yummiest sandwich ever and just had to share it 😉 Quorn, Quark, mustard, and spinach. Perfection between two pieces of bread and the perfect lunch on the train 🙂
Best Sandwich EVER!
