Friday Food Round-Up!

We tried so many new recipes this week!  And I cooked four full meals this week!  Who am I?

Friday – Perfect Seared Scallops with Warm Corn Salad from Cravings, Tater Tots

I’ve always wanted to try this recipe and since we can make shellfish here, we did!

Saturday – Lasagna

Mom made this with cottage cheese instead of ricotta and then we ate lasagna all weekend. It really was an 11/10 recipe. 

Sunday – Salmon, Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms and Peas from Cravings, Salad

Mom made the salmon and salad, I made the risotto. 

Monday – Shrimp and Grits, Salad

I promised to make shrimp and grits envisioning it to be less time intensive than it was. Beka shared this recipe care of her Louisiana cousin. 

For the grits I added 1 cup of cheese, 2 T butter and salt and pepper to taste at the end. I also made the cream sauce with regular hot sauce because we did not have green. 

Tuesday – Chicken Tacos, Pinto Beans, Cilantro-Lime Rice

I thought we had black beans and then we didn’t. 

Wednesday – Sesame Chicken Noodles from Cravings, Stir-Fried Pea Pods, Kung Pao Cauliflower from Trader Joe’s

I made the sesame noodles with peanut butter instead of tahini this time and they were WORLDS better. Would not recommend this cauliflower product.
