Friday Food Round-Up!

Great week at the dinner table this week.  Really.  Look.

Sunday – Pollo Asado and Buttermilk Bacon-Fat Flour Tortillas from The Homesick Texan Family Table Uncle Richard’s Hot Sauce from The Homesick Texan


It has been a long time since I’ve spent most of Sunday afternoon cooking, and this dinner was a perfect way to fill the time.  We’ve had the pollo asado before and it’s a real delight but the marinade is sort of a pain to make.  In hindsight, I should have made more of it to freeze,  but I’ll just have to make a note for next time.

Marcus has never eaten homemade tortillas, I’ve had them in a few places.  After the grilled pizza adventure of summer 2014, I knew that we could handle this.  Instead of bacon grease, I just substituted an additional 2 tablespoons of butter.  They came out just fine.  My next project is to teach Marcus how to roll the tortillas out so that we can start a sort of assembly line.

Tuesday – Korean Keema from Nigella Kitchen with rice and steamed broccoli


The last time we made this dish was in February 2012.  So…over three years ago.  I had no idea.  We have come so far.  We actually own gochujang paste instead of cheating with chili garlic sauce.  Shockingly/not shockingly, this dinner was just as delicious as I remember.

Thursday – Mexican Chicken Salad with Taco Ranch Dressing from The Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook


Clearly this salad has become a favorite, and I am so glad to have it in the rotation!
