Alas – no cooking day, but….
Unpleasant duties called me away from cooking day last weekend. However, not all is lost! I just spent the last hour organizing my BTD compliant cookbook and I feel rejuvenated!
My cookbook has 13 sections. It’s one gigantic black spiral notebook with 13 dividers, “a baker’s dozen, and individual pages covered by page protectors. At the very front of my spiral notebook is a typed list of food categories for both the A’s and O’s.
I.E. O A
Red Meat 4-6 0
Poultry 2-3 0-3
Seafood 3-5 1-3
This is leftover from my dieting days. Since my weight has remained steady, I no longer look as this list. But it’s nice to know that if I needed it, it would take only two seconds to pull this out of my cookbook and plop it on the outside of my refrigerator.
What’s really nice about this organizational method is the very last section. Can you take a wild guess?
Family Dinners… that my husband will actually eat!
They are as follows:
Baked Chicken Breasts, oregano, salt, thyme, paprika and salad
Pineapple Chicken served with white rice
Turkey Cutlets served with salad and corn (for A’s)
Chicken Strips – oregano, onion powder, salt, garlic with salad
Italian Chicken with salad
Sherry- Garlic Chicken N Mushrooms (Since the sherry is red, I am assuming it’s ok)
Pan fried Cod with rice flour, salt, paprika, ghee, canola oil garlic powder and an egg wash with rice pilaf on the side.
Turkey Burgers and Big Beef Burgers with mushroom gravy and salad (I use Ezekiel buns)
Oven Poached Salmon with Dill
I have a Rachel Ray take off “Meatloaf Muffins” and Turkey Muffins recipe I want to try. Adapting the BTD to her “30 minute meals” has really helped get dinners onto our table EASILY.
I am pleased.
