This is one of those weeks where I remembered why I truly love to cook. It is so satisfying to come home after work and know that if I add A to B, it will produce C, which is a real and tangible result A real, tangible, delicious result.
Sunday – BBQ Chicken Pizza using Pizza Crust
On Saturday night, I had some girlfriends over for dinner and it was just lovely. One of them left me half of a rotisserie chicken and I knew immediately that I would have to do something with it. BBQ Chicken Pizza was the first and most natural choice.
Monday – Great Grandma Turano’s Meatballs from Dinner: A Love Story with Papardelle
These meatballs are just the best. I always imagine them taking forever to assemble but this week they came together in a snap. They were the best cozy dinner for a snow (and rush hour traffic)-filled day.
Wednesday – Thai Corn Chowder from Great, Easy Meals
I have been eyeing up this recipe for nearly two years now.
Marcus: Is this a vegan soup?
Answer: No. There is butter. But to build a richer flavor, I think next time I would chuck in a chicken bouillon cube or two. It’s chock full of healthy fats (hello, full fat coconut milk), but it just needs a little touch in the flavor depth-department.
Thursday – Chili Cheese Oven Fries
Laziest dinner of earth. It was either this or going out for dinner. I’m proud of us for staying strong and staying in. Side note, the chili is Trader Joe’s Turkey Chili.
