Friday Food Round-Up!

My nausea finally turned a corner this week, you guys.  I am still suspicious of some things, but on Tuesday I was pretty much like HELLO FOOD.

You’ll notice a turkey theme this week.  We had a Thanksgiving turkey from Marcus’ employer that needed to be evacuated from our freezer.  So Mom cooked it on Sunday and then continued to reincarnate it.  We were not present for Monday dinner (because we were having a takeout farewell dinner in our old house!!!) but she did the turkey three ways – as a Thanksgiving Samosa wrapped in crescent roll dough, something involving bacon and brie and I cannot remember the third way but I should have had her take a picture because it was turning into Chopped here.

My mother would also like you to know she is not taking on any additional boarders at this time. 

Friday – Tater Tot Hot Dish

Sunday – Turkey with Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry Sauce, Cornbread Stuffing, Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes from Smitten Kitchen and Fresh Baked Bread

Okay.  Not my plate.  My plate was just like…not as Thanskgiving-y looking and also involved no brussels sprouts.  Forgive me.  On the other hand, I made the mashed potatoes so that was a great thing!

Monday- Turkey Wild Rice Salad

I have been secretly craving (and being repulsed by the idea of) chicken salad for probably a month.  This really filled my bucket.

Tuesday – Creamy Turkey Wild Rice Soup

In case you are wondering how much wild rice I can eat, the answer is A Lot.

Wednesday – Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos with Cilantro Rice and Black Beans

Mom let me make the black beans. 🙂

Miscellaneous – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mom said she was going to make cookies and I said, while you’re at it can you make them oatmeal?
