Welcome to my Week 9 and 10 wrap-up of the 2017 Minimalist Foodie Challenge! If you’re new, start here.
Still sort of struggling and sort of succeeding with the breakfast game. I’ll be grateful once spring makes her grand appearance and I have some berries to work with. Until then, lots and lots of eggs and leftover veggies, the occasional sweet potato or brussels sprout hash, and one very special breakfast polenta (look for the recipe tomorrow).
As always, lunches are leftovers.
Week 9 Dinners
Back in the saddle! After returning from Austin I got back in the kitchen and the MFC game.

Dinner Finally home! I had a long day of travel (3-hour layover, ugh) and grabbed a burger at the Atlanta airport. The boys had burgers too. Great minds and all.

Dinner Keema Beef Curry, Homemade Naan
Notes Whenever I made naan or pita, I make a double batch and then freeze individual portions in the freezer. The dough takes about a half an hour to defrost on the counter (or you can move from the freezer to the fridge in the morning). It then takes just a few minutes to bake up some fresh flatbread for dinner.

Dinner My take on Hamburger Soup – ground beef, onions, carrots, celery, potatoes and green beans with bone broth, canned tomatoes, herbs, and a parmesan rind.
Notes This is a great “kitchen soup” meal that I love to make when I have nothing on hand and no plan. One of these days I’ll write up the recipe.
