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.


Friday Food Round-Up!

This week we observed week three of me being the primary parent, but with more cooking because at least both of us were home this week.

Can I also just take a moment to say I am so glad we are into grilling and eating outside season? Because it is just the best.

Friday – Spicy Italian Chicken Sausages, Roasted Tiny Potatoes, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

I barely had the energy to help Marcus assemble this but we made it!

Saturday – Tuna Melts

Never ever forget we are fancy people.

Sunday – Auntie Kim’s Sweater Box Chicken Salad, Salad

After eating this at the cabin a few weeks ago, I decided we needed to eat it here.

Tuesday – Burgers with Roasted Tiny Potatoes and Garlicky Wilted Spinach

This was actually our anniversary dinner.

Thursday – 90’s Taco Salad

The more I make this, the faster it comes together.

Or, how I spent my week Not Cooking.

Number one rule of business trips is: don’t do any unnecessary work while your partner is gone because there is enough if it already.

I embrace this by preparing food in advance so my dinner is not one of the things I have to worry about. This week, Dad actually grabbed takeout for us a few nights but I also ate a few pieces of this egg bake that I cooked and froze two weeks ago. I also bought…a lot of salad kits.

Friday – Chili-Lime Chicken Burgers, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

We haven’t had these burgers from Trader Joe’s in…forever? So I picked up a few packages of them at the store. Still delicious.

Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

I made more of these because I only had one left in the freezer, and I had two bananas that NEEDED to go.

Friday Food Round-Up!

If y’all read through the entirety of this post you will have a laugh about the grilled turkey cheese binge I went on this week. Apparently this is just where I am at right now.

I will also note that the most beautiful part of our cabin trip was where I didn’t have to cook all week.

Friday – BBQ Grilled Chicken, Coleslaw, Roasted Potatoes

We had some friends over for dinner and I actually co-opted one of them into doing the grilling which was fantastic.

Saturday – Salmon, Garlicky Wilted Spinach and Hashbrowns

Getting wild and making fish (not from a can!) for a change.

Sunday – Grilled Turkey Cheese with Tater Tots and Southwestern Salad

Pre-cabin trip dinner. No leftovers!

Thursday – Grilled Turkey Cheese with Caesar Salad

Then I came home from the cabin and this was really the most energy I could possibly muster.

Friday Food Round-Up!

How do we know that we turned a corner this week?



Which means probably it is summer now and also we are probably into a really good routine with two kids now.

All I want to eat are grill things and tacos. The only carb I have time to deal with are tiny potatoes that get roasted.

Friday – Chipotle Cheddar Chicken Sausages with Coleslaw and Roasted Potatoes

Welcome to the summer of tiny potatoes.

Sunday – Burgers with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Asparagus

We haven’t made beef burgers in FOREVER. These were rad.

Monday – 90’s Taco Salad

Always the best.

Wednesday – Chipotle Cheddar Chicken Sausages with Garlicky Wilted Spinach and Roasted Potatoes

Sort of a repeat.

Thursday – Turkey Tacos

I am obsessed with these right now.

Miscellaneous – Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

I made these with Critter for playgroup.

Friday Food Round-Up

I cooked a decent amount this week but (1) forgot to take a picture of Saturday’s dinner, (2) made a crockpot full of this soup to see us through the dinners apart and workday lunches in the first part of the week and (3) made a 11/10 dessert for a work potluck that I need to write down the recipe for SINCE I MADE IT UP AS I WENT.

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

This dinner is the best 100% of the time.

Wednesday – Tacos

I made the meat in the crockpot on Tuesday so all we had to do was assemble.

Friday Food Round-Up!

My current relationship with cooking is still middling. And if we are being honest, when I was meal planning last week I planned for us to eat tacos twice even though we were only eating tacos once. (What?!) I am trying to get into the grilling mindset because the season is here. Check in on that next week!

Sunday – Tamale Pie, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

Past Kat cooked (hey freezer meal!) so day-after wedding Kat did not have to. Bless her.

Monday – Sesame Chicken Noodles from Cravings, Steamed Broccoli

This one is always so good.

Wednesday – Tacos

Honestly, all I want to eat is tacos. It may be the theme of the summer.
