Easy Indian

Leave a comment

I forgot about this meal; I used to make it all the time. Then again, I’ve quit my Indian food habit since breastfeeding but I’m back as I feel his belly can handle the spices now. Anyways this meal is so good And easy I had to share. You need
One pound chicken diced and browned
One package frozen veggies. I usually like the steam fresh mushroom and peas but only had the ones below on hand
Patak’s simmer sauce. I love the tikka masala.


After browning chicken, add veggies and simmer sauce. I usually put a bit of water in the jar and shake to “get it all out”


Let simmer for about 15 minutes.
This works because the rice takes about that long. I like basmati or jasmine rice with it. Yum!


Run and Blog a Day-cember

Hi there!  So as the title of this post so eloquently states, I am setting a goal of both running and blogging daily thru the month of December.  Here it goes!  What I have so far= Dec 1- 5k, Dec 2- 3 miles, Dec 3- 4 miles, Dec 4- 5 miles!  A warning: this post will be a little all over the place.  I am feeling that way today 😉 Poor buddy has a horrible cold.  Thus, he has NOT been sleeping well (even though I have been trying very hard to do a little sleep training to cut down to only one night feed…last night Zach was up THREE times I think due to congestion>side note here is a FANTASTIC post by my buddy Caitlin on sleep training).  Weird, his naps have been super long and good. probably due to not sleeping at night!  Poor boy!  Anyway, I forgot to post buy weekly meal plan (ignore this if you think it is boring-I seriously need it to keep my head straight!)

Monday- Shake and Bake chicken w rice and spinach.  Yes, I LOVE Shake and Bake.

Tuesday- Beef stroganoff a la crock pot.  I edited this recipe myself:

1.5 lb stew meat

1 can golden mushroom soup

1 can beef stock

1 heaping teaspoon fresh chopped garlic

1 pinch salt

1 pinch pepper

container fresh mushrooms

one chopped onion

*Combine all ingredients in crock pot, cook on low for 8-10 hours to make meat soft and delish.  Then, add a container of sour cream, cook on high fro 30 min to an hour.  Enjoy over rice, mashed potatoes or pasta.

Wednesday- Turkey meatloaf and roasted potatoes (I make these potatoes at least once a week)

Thursday- quesadilla casserole

Friday- order out

Anyway, I will see you tomorrow will a new Blog a Day-cember post!  🙂
