Friday Food Round-Up!

I am a meal planning ninja because I had this set of meals planned and the corresponding grocery list to go along with it two weeks before I made it.  But that is because otherwise I would have come home from Lubbock to empty pantries and a freezer full of tater tots.

Sunday – Braised Country Style Ribs with Basic Polenta, Version I from How to Cook Everything, and Asparagus Salad


It was time to use the first turkey breast from Marcus’ annual Thanksgiving Turkey and asparagus was on sale at Target for $0.99/lb, which I discovered when I was on a quick post-trip toiletries run.  I thought that steaming it would be a healthy choice, but the idea of topping it with cheese was just irresistible.

Monday – Potato-Chorizo Breakfast Tacos from The Homesick Texan’s Family Table with Uncle Richard’s Hot Sauce from The Homesick Texan and Guacamole


What’s easier than pulling a half-pound of pre-made breakfast sausage from the freezer and pulsing up the best salsa of all time from canned goods?  Nothing.

Tuesday – Channa Masala with Roasted Broccoli, Rice and Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan


In hindsight, I probably should have led with a vegetarian dish after coming home from a week of eating meat the Texan way.  That being said, any day of the week this dinner is an all-time favorite of ours.
