One of my New Year's Resolutions was to incorporate new recipes into my 'go-to meal list' and to use more local, organic ingredients when cooking. I love knowing that the food we're putting in our bodies and straight from the ground of a local farm, rather than pushed through machine after machine and processed to death. (Except... for Valentine's Day sweethearts. Those don't come from the ground. They are processed to death. And yet I love them!)

I decided one new recipe a week was a good pace - so this is what we've had on the menu so far!

Chicken Parm Meatballs - Preston loves chicken Parmesan and meatballs, I on the other hand am not a breaded chicken fan and prefer bolognese sauce over meatballs. But these, these I can do! Easy to make and you can throw half of them in the freezer for a super easy meal another day.

Beef and Broccoli - My dad made this as a side dish on Christmas and I realized how much Preston LOVED it. I kind of felt bad for making him eat chicken five nights a week - ha! I followed my sisters verbal recipe (olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, corn starch for sauce and then beef and broccoli of course) and it turned out great!

Miso Glazed Salmon - Except I couldn't miso so it was maybe more like brown sugar glazed salmon? Whatever it was good!

Also on my to-make-really-soon list:

Lasagna Soup, oh my yum.

Lemon Orzo with Grilled Chicken

Taco Soup
