Friday Food Round-Up!

Lately, I’ve been varying degrees of enthusiastic about cooking.  Cooking new things?  Annoying.  Cooking familiar things?  Fantastic.  Craving?  Nothing at all.

The craving part is probably a not insignificant part of why I’ve been giving our kitchen the side-eye.  It’s always more fun to create when you Want Something Now.

Monday – Beef Meatballs with Fava Beans and Lemon from Jerusalem with rice and asparagus


I didn’t visit Israel until the end of January in 2013.  But according to the Hebrew calendar, it has been a year.  So to honor that, I thought it would be nice to cook a dish from Jerusalem.

We never, ever have fava beans.  The shelling alone is enough to put me off of it.  Frozen, shelled edamame?  Always an excellent substitute.

Wednesday – Baked Potatoes with Trader Joe’s Turkey Chili


Y’all: Guess what.

Marcus made us dinner.  Again.

I love him.

I had a few ideas as to what could make a good New Year’s Day dinner (frittata.  beans on toast.).  When 5:00 PM rolled around and it was time to make some sort of decision, all of that went out the window.

Also: It’s important to note that We Love Trader Joe’s Turkey Chili.  If you haven’t tried it, you really should.

  1. 99% sure the rectangular, cookbook-shaped package wrapped in HAPPY BIRTHDAY paper for me is the Jerusalem book. CANNOT WAIT if so.

  2. I love Jerusalem, but I mostly just make the hummus recipe, adding extra lemon juice of course. Happy New Year my dear.
