Benjamin Franklin may have thought that "hunger is the best pickle," but I'd argue that a solid meal plan is an even better pickle, so to speak, leading to delicious food that's also healthy and affordable.
monday - grilled mahi mahi with chimichurri, collard greens with chorizo and peppers
I once again used a recipe from The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern cookbook last night--this time I tried their collard greens with chorizo and peppers. Courtney didn't join me for dinner, so I used pork chorizo instead of soyrizo as I usually do. This was a tasty dish--spicy chorizo and strips of poblano peppers stirred into wilted collard greens. I liked it, and so far I've been pleased with all of the recipes I've tried from their cookbook. I had leftover collards and chorizo for breakfast with two poached eggs on top--delicious.
For the entrée, I grilled a mahi mahi fillet and topped it with leftover chimichurri from Sunday night. It was tasty, but a bit routine--the star was definitely the spicy collard greens.
