Friday Food Round-Up!

Before we get into it, does anyone have the new Skinnytaste Fast/Slow cookbook and if so, how do you like it?  It sounds like it could be a good one for our lifestyle but since I really don’t NEED more cookbooks I am hesitant. 

Marcus was out of town this week, so I already had plans to subsist Tuesday through Thursday and then Critter got sick again and the whole thing was just a survivalist-style journey.

I know I haven’t written a ton other than the weekly round-up lately, I promise I am trying to get back into some sort of blogging routine. Last weekend I thought I would do a recap of our adventures but the only pictures I took were of my Friday night sushi and the HBO documentary, Becoming Warren Buffett.  Someday!

Anyway, if you’re still sticking with the program, thank you.

Without further adieu, what we ate!

Saturday – Chicken Tacos, Black Beans, Cilantro-Lime Rice

We were supposed to have friends over for dinner and then we did not. We still needed to feast!

Sunday – Help with Hamburger from Farmhouse Rules, Peas

I forgot to take a picture of this one, y’all.  Probably because I whipped it up for Marcus and Critter and then went off to book club.  Next time.

Monday – Garden Pie

I made this so I would have something to subsist on while Marcus was away.

Thursday – Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Honestly, my original plan was “baked potatoes” but when Critter and I went on a milk run on Thursday morning, chuck roast was on sale.  I quickly Googled a recipe, threw a roast in my cart and then promptly tossed the whole thing into the Crockpot when we got home.

I felt like a Domestic Goddess for having this dinner together after Marcus came home from his business trip.

Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I’ve been craving this for about a month now but have not had the time for baking. It’s possible I’ll make ANOTHER loaf next week.

  1. I checked Skinnytaste Fast & Slow out from the library this past fall and read it on a drive back to Green Bay. Then and there I decided I was going to buy it for myself and get it for my PIL and SIL for Christmas.

    I have since tried a handful of recipes. Now I’m thinking I should do a post on this. In fact, I will. I have too much to say!

    In short, I would recommend, if you can, checking it out from the library first and trying a few recipes.

  2. I have both of the Skinnytaste books and love them both!
