Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:


Intentions for the Week: Week 50

 Happy Monday, friends!

This weekend was very peopley! I went into the city for a birthday dinner and a friend’s party- didn’t get home until after midnight! Sunday I went to see the Open Studios in Sausalito with a friend and it was so much fun. We got to see some sunshine this weekend and I am super happy about that. When you have rain for an extended period of time, it’s always nice to see some sun. I learned that in my 4 years of living in Oregon. We have a few weeks left of this month and we start a new year. I’ll be working in my food journal and my Currently Workbook for 2020. Join me! You know I’ll be sharing my Currently pages every month. It will be fun to do it together. I’m sitting down with my calendar and writing down my Intentions for the Week. Here they are!

    I make an Asian beef dish that is on constant rotation at my house.

    For all my beef recipes (this one, hamburgers, meatballs, tacos), I use half beef/half turkey – I buy from Costco organic ground beef and organic ground turkey, lump portions of both into meal-appropriate sized blocks for our family, freeze the blocks on a sheet tray, and then once frozen I store them in a container in the freezer – pull out/thaw as necessary.

    Anyways, my Asian beef recipe is to saute all the chopped veggies you want (onion, garlic, zuch, corn, my faves are broccoli and eggplant, and shredded cabbage at the end), remove from pan. Then cook the meat in the pan by itself. Once cooked down, add this sauce and cook for another minute or two: equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar, and some garlic chili sauce (Sriracha’s cousin, in the jar with the twist-off lid), and maybe a spoonful of minced garlic.

    Serve in bowls – rice, topped with veggies, topped with meat. SO GOOD! And super easy.
