Friday Food Round-Up!

Oh, happy week.

We cooked.  We tried a new recipe.  There were lots of leftovers, and It Was Good.  Despite the weather’s best effort to transport us back to mid-August (no complaints here), it was cozy.

Tuesday – Mom’s Chicken and Green Chili Enchiladas with Black Beans, Cilantro Lime Rice and Guacamole


God this dinner is such a hit.

Mom was on travel again so Dad joined us for dinner.  Thus, I was inspired to action Black Beans and Cilantro Lime Rice as well

Marcus was especially surprised to see That Particular Rice on our table, so I would say that it was victories all around.

Thursday – Five Spice Pork Tenderloin Chicken with Cabbage from Time for Dinner with Brown Rice


1. Five Spice Powder is magic.

2. If you are shopping for said spice powder at the grocery store you can find it for a full $5 cheaper in the ethnic aisle by the Asian foods v. the spice aisle.

3. Brown rice tastes of virtue.

4. Five Spice Powder is magic.

How was I not in on this secret earlier?

  1. I love five spice especially sprinkled on some edamame.

  2. I just re-opened my Homesick Texan Cookbook because I’ve been craving Tex-Mex lately! Homemade chorizo, here I come!

    I like five-spice, but my hubs doesn’t like the sweet-savory combo. I like to add it to my Magic Green Smoothies in place of cinnamon!
