What We Ate: week of April 25

Here is what we ate last week:

[Monday] Steak with Caramelized Onions
BBQ steak, 4 min per sideOn med heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil, let it heat up, add sliced onion, cook until translucent.

[Tuesday] Penne with homemade pasta sauce
Cook pasta add homemade sauce. Easy Peasy. (That piece of broccoli sure took center stage. Noted: I need photography classes)

[Wednesday] Tortellini Soup
Bill's grandma made this for us, so I don't have a recipe for it. Try cooking your favorite soup and add in some cooked tortellini.

[Thursday] Chorizo and Caramelized Onion Stirfry
* This is an easy dinner for 1
Caramelize 1/4 of an onion (instructions above on Monday's meal). Slice a chorizo sausage and add to fry pan with onions in it. Cook through. Add sliced cherry tomatoes and cook until they shrivel up, about 2-3 min. Serve on toast.

[Friday] Chicken with Parmesan and Asparagus, Quinoa side dish
*This is another easy dinner for 1
Preheat oven to 400 F. Slice 1 chicken breast in half lengthwise. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 10 min. Take out chicken and flip. Add 2 asparagus spears, 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese and 1 tsp crushed red pepper to one side of chicken. Place other half of chicken on top and cook for another 10 min. Make sure chicken is cooked through.

Quinoa: Boil 1/2c water, add 1/4c quinoa. Cook for 15 min on low-med. Add 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp coconut, a few sliced cherry tomatoes and heat for around 2-3 minutes. (makes enough for 2 servings so I had leftovers for when the hubs came home).

**Disclaimer: if you can't tell by now, I don't really measure, time, or pay attention to temperatures. This is probably a kitchen faux-pas but I don't care. It's how I roll.
