Tempeh, sauteed with soy sauce and served with sauteed spinach on the side. One of my favorite quick dinners. Tempeh is a soy product, but it’s got a more firm texture than tofu. My dad kept tempeh around the house when he was on his Protein Power kick and I would always ask him to make it for me too.
Mom’s meatloaf and broccoli casserole. Two of my favorite things ever.
Gratin Dauphinois, a Cooking Light recipe (don’t be fooled, we Goldens add twice the cheese and butter, so it’s not light anymore). This was part of the meatloaf/broccoli casserole meal, but it took much longer than I had planned for it to cook. I couldn’t wait to eat the rest of the meal, so the potatoes made it on plate #2.
Lemony Shrimp with White Beans and Cous Cous from Real Simple. This was okay. Kind of bland. It helped to squeeze fresh lemon juice over the whole thing before eating. I almost liked it better as a cold salad the next day.
