Friday Food Round-Up!

Ah yes, the Friday Food Round-Up!  I am sure that at this point, y’all are wondering was she eating this whole time?  Was she not eating this whole time?

  1. With the exception of the pollo asado we made last week (I just couldn’t do it for whatever reason), I have eaten everything I have shown on the blog.
  2. Despite the fact that I managed to make and eat everything, there were a few weeks that were fraught and probably I should have just stuck to French fries.  Also, 100% chance I should not have eaten the leftovers.  Specifically this week and this week.  Those were some bad times.

The best news of the week is that this Sunday was the first week for sweet corn at Gregor Farm.  This of course means that we will be feasting on local vegetables for the rest of the summer and LOVING it.  I am in heaven.

Sunday – Knock-Off Mimi AKA Grilled Pizza Crust and Caprese Salad

SundayMarcus was actually off to a movie with his guy friends so I was on my own.  I didn’t mind having a dinner to myself, but I will say that it is 100% easier to make grilled pizza crust when you have a clean-up crew!  He generously offered to help with that if I were to make grilled pizza crust again.  🙂

Monday – Corn Cakes with Soft-Fried Eggs, and  Corn and Avocado Salad


You Guys.  This corn salad continues to be one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten and it is the most perfect summer side (or meal, depending on your opinion).  Please make it.  The original recipe actually calls for it to be served over steak, but we have never even made it that far!

Wednesday – Grilled Chicken Thighs with 4-3-2-1 Spice RubKnock-Off “Chicken Bucket” Coleslaw, Grilled Corn, Dijon Potatoes


Until I smelled the chicken cooking on the grill, I was not 100% sold on the idea of chicken for dinner so we must be onto something here.  With the return of our summer trips to Gregor Farm, we also have a return of dijon potatoes, which are such a fresh tasting way to serve potatoes.  And, as we all know, it’s a nice switch from our go-to oven fries!
