Congratulations to my freshly re-employed husband! He starts his new job on Tuesday, which is the same day I start full-time teaching. We’ll be on nearly the same schedule, plus he’s going to school in the evenings.

Buckle up, folks. I anticipate this year’s going to be a wild ride. To get us started, some easy food that fulfills my recent protein cravings.

* * * * *

Breakfast – Slow Cooker Oatmeal (Throw 2 sliced apples, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour 2 cups of oatmeal and 4 cups of water on top. Do NOT stir. Cook overnight for 8 – 9 hours on low.)

Dinner #1Chile Pork & Tomatillo Pasta (from the Aug/Sept. 2012 issue of Clean Eating)

Dinner #2 – tilapia with beet roesti and sautéed beet greens (I just season the tilapia with garlic powder and lemon pepper spice, then I grill or sauté it. On the greens: just wash, chop, and sauté with garlic and olive oil)

Dinner #3 – Indian Curry from a Jar (we have some Kali’s Table to use up)

Dinner #4 – quesadillas with chickpea and tomato salad

Dinner #5Crock Pot Italian Sloppy Joes (with side veggies)

Dinner #6Tomato and Arugula Salad with Grilled Steak and Portabella Mushrooms (from Raising the Salad Bar)
