Last week on the Weekend Cook and Tell we asked all of you to share your New Year's Resolutions and the dishes that were helping you stick to them for a challenge we called Resolute Menus. Losing a bit of weight and saving money on groceries were two of our most popular resolutions, let's take a look creative ways all of you have been cutting calories and sticking to grocery budgets during the first two weeks of 2011.
Chris Hansen has two resolutions for the new year: saving money by cooking more meals at home and eating more fiber. He combined the two with this hearty Pork and Collard Greens Soup made with Bob's Red Mill Soup Base found on sale. The whole pot of soup was enough to eat for a week and came in at only $15.
Not really one for New Year's resolutions, orchidgirl is trying to cut back on the diet soda and desserts by keeping her palate occupied with good-for-you options like this Radish, Cucumber, and Dill Salad.
Even though KarmaFreeCooking is a vegetarian, her goal for 2011 is to up her salad intake by introducing new greens and dressings to her leafy repertoire.
Thanks to everyone who shared their get-healthy-in-2011 recipes and ideas for this week's Weekend Cook and Tell challenge. Be sure to head over to Talk and read about next week's challenge: Kitchen Tool Crossover.
