Friday Food Round-Up!

We cooked so much this week and I really need to get our kitchen into gear for some batch cooking because I need to get more meals out the door.

Saturday – Turkey Tacos

X2. As always.

Monday – Roasted Cauliflower, Feta and Orzo Salad from Cravings

I made this so we could eat it throughout the week. I haven’t made it in FOREVER so it was a tasty treat.

Tuesday – 90s Taco Salad

I thought we should at least try to eat some lettuce this week.

Wednesday – Tuna Melts, Tots

I had a packed night so Marcus made this dinner!

Thursday – Stuffed Cabbage Without The Roll from Farmhouse Rules

I made a double batch of this in the crockpot so we could freeze some meals.


Friday Food Round-Up!

I put the slow cooker to work this week. I made chicken enchilada soup for a family friend (THE MEAL TRAIN NEVER ENDS Y’ALL) and a double batch of chili for the freezer.

I am getting ready for fall. And batch cooking so that once a week we can eat dinner at home without cooking. What joy.

Friday – Chili Lime Chicken Burgers from Trader Joe’s, Roasted Potatoes, Garlic Green Beans, Grilled Zucchini, Corn


Saturday – Grilled Salmon, Dijon Potatoes, Green Beans, Corn

Pro-tip: put some butter on your salmon before you cook it. Like one tablespoon total.

I will also say these dijon potatoes are just the best.

Monday – BBQ Chicken, Three Bean Salad, Roasted Potatoes, Corn

What recommends this meal: When eating leftovers, Critter likes eating the kidney and garbanzo beans, Glitter likes the chicken

Wednesday – Salsa Chicken Tacos

I wasn’t actually supposed to be home for this dinner but I made this chicken on Tuesday so Marcus would have something to eat and then it was for both of us.

Miscellaneous – Pizza Braid

Critter and I baked this together of course.

Friday Food Round-Up!

Friends, my energy is at an all-time low this week. Here. We ate.

Read to the bottom for the best meal.

Sunday – Tuna Melts, Salad


Sunday – Enchiladas, Rice, Black Beans

I popped 3 lbs of chicken in the crockpot to make a double batch of these and one pan is in the freezer. I made a huge batch of rice and beans on the side to stretch the pan we did eat into like…six full meals total and an extra one for the freezer.

Tuesday – Slow Cooker Gyros, Garlicky Wilted Spinach, Tots

My friend Madelyn gets credit for these. Chicken into the crockpot with 1/2 bottle Greek dressing! Shred! Serve! Rejoice!

Friday Food Round-Up

Better late than never, people.

Saturday – Sriracha Caesar Salad from Cravings


Saturday – Perfect Instant Ramen


Sunday – Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken, Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread from Cravings, Garlicky Wilted Spinach


Tuesday – Breakfast Tacos

Apparently we are in that kind of mood right now.

Miscellaneous – Pizza Braid

Critter helped me make this.

Miscellaneous – No Bake Energy Bites

Honestly, I need to make these without flax.

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week, there was a lot of slow cooking things one day so that we could eat them the next. There was also a lot of foraging/leftover eating this week.

Monday – Enchilada Casserole, Black Beans, Cilantro-Lime Rice

I sort of just threw this together? And I made an extra one for the freezer? The second one was going to live happily at our house but The Universe intervened and delivered it to a friend with a new baby at home.

Wednesday – Easy Slow Cooker Yellow Coconut Curry Chicken, Rice, Steamed Broccoli

Easy. Tasty. Every time.

Friday Food Round-Up!

After last week I was sort of cooked out you guys. Honestly I still am, but we need to eat. My personal chef is me.

Sunday – Slow-Cooker Southwestern Lomo Saltado, Black Beans, Rice, Fried Eggs, Aji Criollo

It was Marcus’ birthday on Saturday, someday we will actually get to go out for a birthday dinner for him. I brought his favorite meal from Chimborazo to him in our kitchen. We loved it. This is definitely a crockpot recipe that takes a bit of chopping but 11/10 will make again.

Tuesday – Breakfast Tacos

Have not eaten these in AGES, will be adding to the rotation.

Wednesday – 90’s Taco Salad

It was weird to have so many salads planned for last week and none for this week so here we are. With a salad. It was The Best.

Thursday – Slow Cooker Asian Pork Chicken with Mushrooms from Skinny Taste Fast and Slow, Steamed Rice, Broccoli

Marcus really liked this last time we made it so it seemed like an easy enough choice for this week!

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week, I had a husband who was home so we actually cooked and stuff!

Saturday – Perfect Instant Ramen, Salad

We weren’t planning to cook on Saturday but it worked out and ramen is what we had in the cupboard.

Sunday – Slow Cooker Italian Sausage, Escarole, Orzo, and White Bean Soup from Skinny Taste Fast and Slow, Salad, Challah

This week I was not in the mood for “escarole” but I did want to add a half box of orzo that had taken up residence in the pantry.

Monday – Three Cheese Sundried Tomato and Spinach Pasta from Cast Iron Cooking

This was our Appalachian Trail solidarity meal of the week. I will also say this is not an overly time consumptive dish to prepare, but it is still more than I can handle right now.

Tuesday – Easy Slow Cooker Yellow Coconut Curry Chicken, Steamed Rice, Steamed Broccoli

As always, this recipe is just such a gem.
