I want to eat real food. I want my family to eat real food. Armed with this plan, I know I can do it. I am a real person, with real kids in a regular ol' kitchen cranking out dinner. Find out my inspiration for the menus, what's happening in my kitchen, and the achievements on the kid-friendly front.

Orange You Glad

2013-01-18 | 2 comments


“Knock, knock”
“Who’s there?”
“Orange who?’
“Orange you glad you don’t have to think about what’s for dinner?”

I am. Every Monday, I am so glad that my fridge is full of real food. I have just what I need to feed my family for the week. And, from the emails and texts that I am receiving from coast to coast, you are too.

In keeping with the “Orange” theme, yes, it’s a theme; we are eating orange foods all week. Orange you glad?!? My kids totally latch on to this kind of theme and ask me every night which orange food we are eating tonight. Fun!

It also gives us a great springboard to talk about the different foods, why they are tasty and why they are good for us. They are full of all sorts of good stuff such as beta-carotenes, vitamin A, minerals and anti-oxidants in ample amounts. They taste good because of the way we are preparing them – letting their natural flavor and sugars come forward. Y.U.M.

Have a blast with orange this week.

Strategy: We are brining the pork loin so take a look at the recipe. Make the brine (10 minutes) on Monday and let it sit over night. Roast on Tuesday.

MB, I have been using your recipes for the past couple of months, sometimes the whole week plan or maybe just one or two recipes. But it was a recipe from this week that made me want share with you and your followers. The roast pork with apples and butternut squash was to die for! Yummy, yummy! I ended up brining the pork for two days because I was carpooling kids to and from basketball all evening! It was moist and flavorful. The apples and fennel added a touch of sweetness to the slightly salty pork. I loved it. Thanks for spicing up my meals each week.
