Home Chef week 2

I thought that I would keep sharing my meals that I am getting delivered.

For the second week, I got a late start on making the meals. The first was the Ditalini Chicken Ceasar Salad. The lettuce was a almost translucent, but since I didn't have anything else to make quickly, I just went ahead with it. I feel like it was a lot of chicken and not a lot of lettuce and tomatoes for 2 meals. But the homemade dressing was good. Garlicky, but good.

Dinner 2 was pork chop with candied walnut butter and Parmesan acorn squash. I've never had squash before that I know of and this was really good! And the candied walnut butter was fantastic! This is definitely something that I will make again!

Dinner 3 was London Broil sirloin steak with grilled zucchini and sweet potato fries. A lot of garlic in the marinade again. And I'm not a big fan of zucchini, but since I made it, I ate it.

On my way home from work one night, I stopped and picked up a fresher romaine and roma tomato and tried the ceasar salad again and it was perfect! Except I forgot to sprinkle with Parmesan. It was much easier to clean my plate the second time around.

I am surprised how easy it is to make sweet potatoes and plan on picking a couple up to have on hand for nights I don't have a meal to make. And I can't wait to get my meals every week to learn something new and try something new!

Your dishes look fantastic and would love it if you shared a couple of the recipes. That candy walnut butter with those chops esp!

Looks yummy! I need to make sweet potato fries and see how my kids like them - I know I like them!
