Changes: 1) Doubled the recipe; 2) Used chicken broth instead of vegetable.
Tuesday: Out to dinner for Paul’s birthday
Wednesday: CrockPot Asian Pork with Mushrooms
Changes: 1) Used 2 lb pork tenderloin instead of sirloin roast; 2) Used tamari instead of soy sauce; 3) Didn’t add agave or scallions; 4) Substituted a combination of ground cloves, ground cinnamon, fennel seeds, and red pepper flakes for the Chinese Five Spice; 5) Served over brown rice.
Friday: CrockPot Pork and Edamame Soup
Saturday: Turkey and Cheese Manicotti
This was my first time making manicotti, and it turned out really well. (Note: Although 99% of the time I use gluten-free rice noodles when cooking pasta, I couldn’t find manicotti in rice noodle form — I assume because they might not hold up when stuffing them. So for this dish, I used regular manicotti shells.)
Changes: 1) Used ground turkey instead of beef; 2) Used pepper-jack cheese instead of Parmesan; 3) Didn’t add butter.
