This week, I accomplished Next Level mom-ing and actioned a meal for a mama with a new little one at home. We also managed to try a few new dishes because again, I am trying to fend off some sort of cooking all the time-induced boredom.
Sunday – Fish and
Corn Cakes with Tartar Sauce, Roasted Root Vegetable Hash, Steamed Asparagus
Root vegetable hash is actually a fancy way of us saying that we had two stray potatoes, four extremely small sweet potatoes, and a bag of orphan carrots in the fridge. I had to do something with them.
We ended up actioning fish cakes again because I had an orphaned bag of salmon filets in the freezer that I am pretty sure I purchased over a year ago. Yes, seriously. It was time to move them out.
In short, this could actually be called a dinner of odds and ends that just so happens to look MUCH prettier than that.
Monday – Sausage, Peppers and Onions, Salad
Obviously I didn’t take a photo of the salad but you’ll just have to trust that it was there.
I wish I could explain why I felt the need to action sausage + peppers but I have literally no clue. Anyway, this Giada recipe is bomb dot com and we will make it again, but probably in the fall when it’s cooler.
Wednesday – Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burgers with Avocado, American Cheese, and Hatch Chile Aioli, Trader Joe’s Hatch Chile Mac n’ Cheese
Me to Marcus: This is how most people are making dinner every single night.
Verdict on the chicken burgers: 10/10 would buy again.
Verdict on the mac n’ cheese: not bad, but we won’t buy it again.
Miscelleaneous – Earth Cookies
What else is new.
