Friday Food Round-Up!

I am writing this with my feet up because it has been a WEEK. I made yet another (surprise) batch of this soup and immediately dispatched it to another new mama friend. We also made a batch of Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins over the weekend when Marcus’ Zayde (grandpa) came to visit.

Friday – Grilled Chicken, Tots, Grilled Asparagus

Saturday – Grilled Steaks, Roasted Potatoes, Grilled Zucchini, Corn

I thought the crispy onions were a nice touch to be honest.

Sunday – 90’s Taco Salad

Everything about this salad is always the best.

Monday – Grilled Pizza

It was great. I used pesto instead of torn basil leaves so that we would get more all over flavor.

Tuesday Chicken Sausages, Corn, Roasted Potatoes, Obsessively Good Cucumber Avocado Salad

Thursday – Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Green Beans, Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice from Cravings, Soft Fried Egg


Friday Food Round-Up!

Marcus was traveling, I did not cook while he was gone. But we cooked last weekend!

Saturday – Salmon, Dijon Potatoes, Garlicky Wilted Spinach, Corn

We really need to make fish more often.

Sunday – Chili Lime Chicken Burgers, Three Bean Salad, Roasted Potatoes, Corn

Grill dinner.

Miscellaneous – Pizza Braid

Critter loves to help make this and LOVES to eat it even more.

Friday Food Round-Up!

I am going to take a moment to applaud myself for planning this menu two weeks ago, before vacation happened, so that we would have dinners and leftovers to enjoy this week.

Sunday – Grilled Chicken Sausages, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

This was sort of refreshing after a week/weekend of vacation eating.

Monday – Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice from Cravings, Asparagus, Soft-Fried Egg

We added the egg to stretch out meat so we would have lunch leftovers. Such a delicious choice.

Tuesday – Turkey Tacos

This x2. Also this meat goes great on the coconut rice as a fusion bowl of leftovers.

Friday Food Round-Up!

We had dinner with my family on Sunday so I took that opportunity to make a double batch of dinners in the crockpot that we can pull out later. Note to file: Always do this.

Monday – Turkey Ragu over Polenta, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

The ragu was actually a slow cooker meal I pulled from the freezer. It went GREAT over the polenta.

Wednesday – Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice from Cravings, Asparagus

This is probably just going to be one of our meals for the rest of the summer.

Thursday – 90’s Taco Salad


Friday Food Round-Up!

This week we actually cooked everything. And I made another double batch of this soup so we had a few more meals in the freezer ready to go to friends!

Friday – One-Skillet Steak and Spring Veg with Spicy Mustard, Roasted Tiny Potatoes

We had an at-home date night.

Saturday – Perfect Instant Ramen

We haven’t made this in a few months! Easy, fast dinner.

Sunday – Texas Sweet Onion Casserole with Rice, Chipotle and Gruyere Cheddar, Black Beans, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

It has been YEARS since I made this rice casserole and it is just the best ever. Literally the best. We will be making it more.

Tuesday – Grilled Barbecue Chicken, Roasted Tiny Potatoes, Coleslaw, Hot Brownie Sundaes

We had a pre-Independence day grill out with friends.

Wednesday – Roasted Turkey

I literally made this for the potluck we were invited to. And it was great. Not pictured: the scratch gravy I made.

Thursday – Sesame Chicken Noodles from Cravings, Steamed Broccoli

Once again, I made them peanut instead of sesame. Still great. Also, I used leftover turkey instead of chicken because it was there and it was fast.

Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

I had two extra bananas so we needed to re-stock the freezer.

Friday Food Round-Up!

Is this the latest on a Friday I have posted a round-up? Yes.

I will also say I thought I cooked a lot this week but I only have pictures of three meals. A mystery.

Oh, right (actually just remembered not a humble brag). I made a double batch of this soup this week and fed three mamas with little ones.

Monday – Grilled Chicken Teriyaki, Sweet and Salty Coconut Rice from Cravings, Steamed Broccoli

There were some complications steaming the broccoli but we managed to eat dinner and this rice is great.

Tuesday – Turkey Tacos

Spoiler alert: I actually ate four tacos.

Wednesday – Spicy Italian Chicken Sausages with Roasted Potatoes and Garlicky Wilted Spinach

Are you tired of seeing this one yet?

Friday Food Round-Up!

Uno: Send me your favorite pasta salad recipes.

Dos: There is no dos.

Sunday – BBQ Chicken, Roasted Tiny Potatoes, Coleslaw, Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread from Cravings

This seemed Father’s Day-y to me?

Monday – Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausages, Garlicky Wilted Spinach, Leftover Cornbread

A fast meal.

Tuesday – Pasta Salad with Roasted Tomatoes

(1) I added chicken. (2) The last time I had this was a girls’ weekend three years ago. MISTAKE. IT IS SO GOOD.

Thursday – Chile Lime Chicken Burgers with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Asparagus

I realized we had to start making more meals with asparagus because Critter will eat asparagus? Anyway, more of that on the way.
