Sides Galore

What to serve on the side???

Lots of people I know freak out about meal planning because of side dishes.  My problem is forgetting about all of the great recipes for sides I find, and then always going back to the old stand-bys: potatoes in some form, rice, salad, veggies, fruit, chips.... Here are a few that I've pinned or saved recently, and will try to work into my meal plans soon:

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

Mini Wedge Salads - YUM, and cute, too!  Why wait for a special occasion? 

Cauliflower Poppers - or try this one: Balsamic & Parmesan Cauliflower

Green Bean Casserole - it's not just for Thanksgiving!

Roasted Broccoli

Quinoa (Costco sells a big bag of it for a good price, otherwise, it's by the rice or organic foods)

Honey Glazed Carrots (tweaks: slice 2 c. whole carrots into "coins" and cut honey to 2 tbsp., brown sugar to 1 tbsp.)

Sautéed Spinach with Red Onion, Blue Cheese & Bacon

Whole Wheat Couscous with Parm & Peas

I'm trying this with brown rice right now: rice in your slow cooker!
