Friday Food Round-Up!

This week, we started to get back into our cooking routine and that was really lovely.  We got to try a new (to our kitchen) dinner and I also got to make a few old favorites.  A perfect combination.

Sunday – Sesame Chicken with Gingery Greens


Marcus and I discussed the idea of eating dinner salads a few weeks ago and this is the salad I had in mind to lead the charge.  When I asked my mom for the recipe, she sent me a photo of the newspaper clipping she took when it was first published – It’s an old recipe from the Star Tribune (2004!) but it is just as delicious today and so simple to prepare.

Tuesday – Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps


Originally we were supposed to have BBQ chicken sandwiches, but then Marcus got dispatched to a guys’ night.  The next best choice for dinner was ANOTHER recipe from the Star Tribune.  I always add a diced zucchini to the mix, just to give it an extra veggie kick.

Thursday – Breakfast Tacos from The Homesick Texan


Last year, on New Year’s Day, we actioned a lovely brunch for our overnight guests including Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes and Sausage Bread from Damn Good Food, the Hell’s Kitchen cookbook.  While we didn’t even host a party this year, I really liked the idea of having something hot and delicious to eat for breakfast on New Year’s Day so I planned this into our menu without a moment’s hesitation.  Who know’s what we’ll feast on next year!
