|Sirloin with reduced balsamic|
vinegar and roasted brussels
So after seeing and tasting delicious homemade food, I realized that I've been lazy and scared. I have been scared to get in the kitchen and attempt to cook and learn because Chef is clearly an expert (it's a little intimidating). And lazy because cooking takes time and effort and planning. All things that I've been neglecting for the last several weeks.
I hit some websites and used Pinterest to house a bunch of healthy recipes. I planned out the week, prepped my breakfasts and lunches, and visited the farmer's market, Whole Foods and the grocery store. After day one, I feel pretty good.
If I were to make the meal again, I'd:
- cook the sprouts lower and slower (our oven is gas and therefore weird).
- would use a little more olive oil on the sprouts (and a little less salt).
- reduce the balsamic more.
- Use the four cloves of garlic the recipe calls for instead of just two because I was chicken. However, the rosemary taste outweighed the garlic because of it.
Overall, I'd make the lemon raspberry muffins and the sirloin again.
|The lemon raspberry muffins that I made for breakfast this week and froze for the weeks to come. Be warned: they are delicious, but not sweet at all.|
|Chef cooked the steak because I didn't want to mess up something that expensive, but that's all he did hands on. He was patiently helping me and giving me advice from the sidelines though.|
