meal plan

We're finally back in Portland after a week in sunny Arizona, and I must say, it's nice to return to this gray, rainy sky. A short meal plan this week, though.

What did you have for Christmas dinner? On Christmas eve, my husband and I had Domino's Pizza. Yup. I could go into the myriad reasons why, but suffice it to say, I'm glad to be back to normal. It was, however, a great holiday and so nice to see family and friends.

Meal 1: wheat berry-pinto bean soup, quesadillas
Meal 2: winter salad with seared scallops & roasted squash, corn chowder
Meal 3: eggplant & chickpea stew, quinoa, sautéed kale
Meal 4: eggplant & chickpea baked pasta


  1. I'm intrigued by your meal #3, especially the quinoa and sauteed kale. I do the kale fairly often and love it. Quinoa, though, is more of a stretch for me. As a registered dietitian, I encourage all my clients to try something new. So, will you pls help me with some ideas for preparing quinoa -- the simpler, the better. Thanks!

  2. I just served plain cooked quinoa with the stew on Wednesday night--an easy preparation for sure! If you're interested in other ways to prepare it, click on "quinoa" in the "searching for a specific ingredient" section on the right. Good luck!
