CrockPot Pork Ragu
This was very, very good. I would definitely make it again.
Had dinner at separate work events
Since I had all the ingredients I needed, I decided to make a double-batch so I could use the extra for work lunches over the next few days. I served it with quinoa instead of my usual brown rice.
Yum! This was easy and delicious.
Changes & Notes: 1) Decided to use a 28 oz-can of crushed tomatoes instead of only one 15-oz can of stewed tomatoes (I prefer more sauce); 2) Didn’t add sugar; 3) Didn’t add Cajun seasoning (I substituted a dash each of garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano). Served with rice noodles (for me) and regular pasta (for Paul).
Fresh zucchini/squash and leftovers
I cut up some zucchini and squash that I had in the fridge and cooked it in coconut oil with salt and pepper. That’s all it needed — it was very good. I ate most of it because I’m a squash & zucchini fiend, but Paul had some as well and liked it.
Dinner out with friends
The casserole had an interesting flavor. I really liked it.
Changes & Notes: 1) Didn’t add almonds because Paul doesn’t like them; 2) Didn’t add tomatoes; 3) Substituted golden raisins for the dried cranberries; 4) Used more spinach than it called for (half of a 10-oz bag of baby spinach instead of just a handful).
