I’ve got a terrific Weeknight Rescue in store to close out the month of January (wow, it’s gone fast). As always, the shopping list for all the recipes is at the bottom of page. Print it and bring it to the market!

LAMB SLIDERS WITH HERB YOGURT SAUCE

Lamb sliders with yogurt sauce

These are little flavor-packed lamb patties served on lettuce wraps in lieu of buns. You can swap some of the lamb and pork in the recipe for turkey if you prefer and it will still be plenty tasty. Side dishes? I’d do up some little roasted potatoes or another favorite roasted vegetable to dunk in the extra yogurt sauce on your plate.

RESET BUTTON SALAD WITH CARROT MISO DRESSING

Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing

A new recipe on the site and one I made just last night for dinner. Adding either baked tofu or cooked chicken makes it a main course hefty enough to hold everyone over.  Got room for dessert? Consider a batch of these Chocolate Chip “Makeover” Cookies. 

SPAGHETTI SQUASH LASAGNA

Spaghetti squash lasagnaA winter favorite that I can’t seem to get enough of. You’ll find no pasta in this lasagna, just layers of cooked spaghetti squash, tomato sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella. The effect satisfies everyone’s craving for Italian flavors, just a whole lot lighter and veggie-packed. I like to heat up a baguette and serve that on the side along with a green salad. 

DARK CHOCOLATE MUESLI

 I made two batches of this muesli just this week and everyone in the house has been dipping in. I’ve been pairing it with frozen raspberries, which I defrost, and then douse everything with milk. 

LOADED SWEET POTATO NACHOS

Sweet Potato Nachos

Something to keep in mind for noshing as we approach the Super Bowl and Olympics. I love the sweetness of the potatoes paired with the heat from the salsa and pickled jalapenos. Plenty of cheese never hurts, either.
