This week's menu... 9/9/13-9/15/13... and Roasted Garlic Aspargus and Brussles Sprouts with Sriracha Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce recipe

I know, I know...  I'm late...  again...

I don't have a good excuse this time, either.  I realized that I didn't do it last night, so I did my planning then, and wrote out the recipe today.  But the pictures to go with the recipe had to wait until dinnertime (for obvious reasons).

...A little bit about where I'm at...
     I'm back to watching my calories and *really* trying to hit my weight loss goal.  In less than a week, I'm back down to where I was when I quit trying  a couple of months ago (score!).  I've hit my first fifteen lb. goal (that I set for myself at the beginning of the year), and I'm halfway to my ten lb. goal that I set for myself for the month.  Here's to staying motivated!  ...and exercise  ...and portion control.


...this week's menu...

Monday:  Pork loin roast, leftover quinoa chili and salad

Tuesday:  Tri-tip "asada" (from Trader Joe's) with roasted garlic aspargus and brussles sprouts with sriracha Greek yogurt dipping sauce (recipe following)

Wednesday:  ...either a zucchini fritatta or stuffed zucchini...  I can't decide.

Thursday:  leftovers

Friday:  Pizza night!

Saturday:  Roasted chicken and veggies

Sunday:  Buffalo chicken pasta


Roasted Garlic Aspargus and Brussles Sprouts with Sriracha Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Serves 6

one bunch of fresh asparagus, ends snapped off, then cut in half (horizontally)
one bag of Brussles sprouts (fresh or frozen)
garlic powder
a drizzle of oil (coconut or olive)

3/4 c. plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. sriracha

For the veggies:
Preheat oven to 350° F.  Toss veggies in oil, then season to taste.  Roast for 20 minutes, then stir 'em around a little and roast another 10-20 minutes, or until they're tender.

For the dipping sauce:
Stir together ingredients.  Easy.  (for single servings of the sauce, use 2 Tbsp. yogurt, 1 tsp. sriracha)

What's on your menu this week?
