Lunch This Week
Baked Chicken Thighs
The Mac : 1/2 lb rotini pasta, boiled and drained. 2 large leeks, stalk portion only, chopped, and rings separated. 4 mushrooms, rough chopped. Leeks were steamed til tender, then I threw the mushrooms in and cooked for another few minutes. Cheese sauce : 1.5 tbsp butter, 2 oz cream cheese, big handful of shredded colby jack, 2 slices of swiss cheese, 1/2 c milk, 1/4 c flour, garlic powder. I mixed it all together and poured into a glass baking dish, then I spread 4 slices of swiss cheese on top. Baked at 425 for 30 minutes (til brown on top)
The Chicken : 4 chicken thighs, baked at 425 for 1 hour. I didn't season them at all.
Mixed Veggies : 4 small carrots, sauteed in olive oil until they started to brown. Then I chopped and added the leaves from the leeks, 6 mushrooms, and 3 small yellow squash.
The meal : ...Not the healthiest one I have made, but leek mac n cheese is so delicious! Gouda is usually my go-to fancy cheese for mac, but I've been on a swiss kick lately so I decided to use that instead. I won't be eating this every day anyway, I still have some lunches left over from last week because it was a hectic week and I ended up not needing my lunches every day. (Tuesday was provided by a coworker, and I was out of town Thursday-Sunday)
