It’s a new year and time to get back to eating healthy and wholesome meals instead of holiday candy and party foods. I am making a deliberate effort to incorporate more vegetables into our diet. What eating goals do you have for this new year?

Monday-Coconut Lime Chicken with Brown Rice and Green Salad
This is my launching recipe. I prefer to cut the chicken into small pieces and increase the amount of sauce by bumping up the chicken stock and coconut milk. I also use a jalapeno and no chili flakes, but you could omit this if your family does not like spicy foods.

Tuesday-Indian Butter Chicken with White Rice and Roasted Cauliflower
This is one of our family favorites. There are so many great versions of this recipe out there. Here is my favorite.  I don’t have a recipe for the roasted cauliflower. I like to toss it in olive oil and salt and roast for 15 minutes at 400, until it is just tender. Then top with Parmesan cheese. However for this meal I may find something that will better complement the Indian flavors.

WednesdayKartoffelpuffer and bratwurst with sauerkraut
We are doing a 5 week study on the Five Solas as a way to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. So I’m trying to find something German to make each night of the study. I know almost nothing about German food so this is a big stretch.

ThursdayZuppa Toscana, Green Salad and Breadsticks
Think Olive Garden 🙂 I always make several modifications to this. I omit the bacon and use kielbasa sausage instead of spicy Italian sausage. I also use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream.

Friday– Leftovers

I hope your week is full of good food.
