Friday Food Round-Up!

Last week, no Friday Food Round-Up (because we didn’t cook at all).  This week, a Friday Food Round-Up full of things that I love and none of my appetite.

Sunday – Great Grandma Turano’s Meatballs from Dinner: A Love Story


I made these with the full two pounds of ground turkey so that I could throw some into the freezer to build up a stash of things for Marcus to eat when I’m out of town to remind him of how much he misses me SLASH for him to thaw when I get home and am desperately jetlagged.

Yes, you could serve this over pasta.  And I am sure that would change lives.  But I prefer to eat it straight with a bit of crusty bread for dipping.  It’s a lifestyle.

Tuesday – Breakfast Tacos with Green Chorizo from The Homesick Texan


Texan brunch is what everyone should be doing on New Year’s Day.

Tuesday – Channa Masala, Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala, Roasted Broccoli, Pickled Daikon (or something) from Street Food, Rice, Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan

Tuesday 2

We promised my parents a very long time ago that we would have them over for dinner to do the whole Indian food thing.  So we slapped this on the calendar two months out.

Blessedly, the only thing I actually had to make (since I was busy being repulsed by all food) was the Channa Masala, which is officially one of our easiest meals.  The rest of it came from the freezer (thank you, foresight) or the wild.

This is Marcus’ plate.  I choked down two samosas (one that tasted appropriately bland, the other being FAR too colorful) and a piece of naan.

Wednesday – Simple, Perfect Chili from The Pioneer Woman Cooks with Northern Cornbread (from the freezer!) from The Joy of Cooking


1. Thank you Ree.  I say this every time.  But truly, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.  This chili has re-shaped the world I live in.

2. Thank God I had that epiphany last go-round to make the cornbread into corn muffins!  I still have five left in the freezer just waiting for the next time we action chili.

Do you have a favorite chili recipe?  What do you usually action for company?

  1. I make my Dad’s Bada$$ Chili (recipe on the blog) as my go-to chili. This recipe looks great though! I like mine with a little more onion flavor built in, but I see you have a gob on top. I think I’ll try this soon.

  2. I usually make Laura’s Slow Cooker Turkey Chili from, but with ground beef instead of turkey, ’cause the turkey just doesn’t taste quite right.
    For company, it varies. I’ve made the slow cooker chicken tikka masala you have above, roast chicken, chili, meatballs, pizza…. Guess I like to mix it up and try new things!
