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!
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!
