Friday Food Round-Up!

We are keeping the variety alive at our house!

Friday – Harissa Salmon over Spinach

I had a salad like this a few weeks ago at a restaurant and had to recreate it. Marcus RAVED about the salmon so I will write up a recipe when I have the chance!

Sunday – Tomato and Gigante Bean Bake from Smitten Kitchen Every Day, Baguette

This is officially a fave.

Monday – Lime-Pickle Roasted Chicken with Potatoes and Watercress Spinach

This recipe has been in my binder since March 2017 untouched. I’m glad I saved it. Marcus got the lime pickle at the Indian grocery down the street. We both loved the meal and Critter loved the chicken.

Wednesday – Coconut Beef Curry, Steamed Rice, Steamed Cauliflower

I did this in the crockpot on Tuesday, we ate it on Wednesday.

We liked it fine, Critter enjoyed it some, Glitter ate TONS so will make again.

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week I revived our recipe binder. I also cleaned it out and purged the recipes we never made at all or made once but did not love.

Sunday – Pan Roasted Chicken with Harissa Chickpeas, Roasted Cauliflower

An old favorite is back.

Tuesday – Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

This time instead of using salsa I just dumped in a packet of taco seasoning.

Thursday – Braised Chicken Thighs with Indian Flavors, Steamed Broccoli, Steamed Rice

I made this in the crockpot instead of in the oven and that was a great choice.

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week we made a lot of new meals because apparently I had the energy for that?! Also I put the crockpot to work because it is literally The Only Way.

Sunday – Tomato and Gigante Bean Bake AKA Pizza Beans from Smitten Kitchen Every Day, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

I made the garlic bread in the recipe instead of having a plain baguette and it was fantastic. Also fantastic? PIZZA BEANS.

Tuesday – Chicken and Rice Soup with Green Chiles and Ginger

I made this in the crockpot. Also somehow we lost the chiles, so we used sambal on top instead.

Thursday – Crispy Short Rib Carnitas with Sunset Slaw from Smitten Kitchen Every Day

I made this (drumroll) IN THE CROCKPOT!

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week was the return of the crockpot in a major way. Since we didn’t really cook over the weekend, I ran it and batch cooked soups so that we could restock our freezer and feed friends (I am a one woman meal train).

We are going to make this soup next week so feel free to cook along if you want. I will of course, be modifying it for the crockpot.

Sunday – Perfect Instant Ramen

This has just been such a perfect weekend lunch.

Tuesday – Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken, Coleslaw, Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread from Cravings

Basic.

Wednesday – Italian Chicken Sausages with Buffalo Smashies from Cravings: Hungry for More and Garlicky Wilted Spinach

I LOVE these potatoes.

Thursday – Easy Slow Cooker Yellow Coconut Curry Chicken with Steamed Rice and Roasted Broccoli

We have not made this meal in a number of months nor have I roasted broccoli in a long time. It was great. We were hosting my brother-in-law and sister-in-law for dinner so this meal came together easily and with a minimum of dishes.

Friday Food Round-Up!

Yesterday I very literally did not have a single minute to spend blogging. So we are having a Saturday-Friday Food Round-Up. I knew you would understand.

Marcus went straight from surgical recovery to being out of town Monday – Wednesday so I have eaten a lot of food from our freezer.

Sunday – Perfect Instant Ramen

Lunch.

Sunday – John’s Chili and Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread from Cravings

I made the chili in the slow cooker.

Wednesday – Turkey Tacos

MARCUS COOKED THESE!!!!

Thursday – Sesame Chicken Noodles from Cravings, Steamed Broccoli

We’ll be eating these all weekend.

Friday Food Round-Up!

This week brought to you by the side vegetable, spinach. I also made a batch of chili in the slow cooker on Sunday so we would have a few extra lunches!

Friday – Spicy Chicken and Chips from Farmhouse Rules with Garlicky Wilted Spinach

Haven’t made this recipe in AGES. It is a good one.

Tuesday – Spice Rubbed Parmesan Chicken Breasts and Buffalo Smashies from Cravings: Hungry for More, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

I tried marinating the chicken this time instead of just topping it with the spice rub/paste and it turned out pretty good that way.

Wednesday – Black Bean and Mushroom Enchilada Casserole from Cravings: Hungry for More

So tasty, but I think we probably should have just ordered a pizza to make Halloween a bit easier.

Thursday – Braised Short Ribs with Sweet Potato Mash from Cravings: Hungry for More, Garlicky Wilted Spinach

Once again I made this in the crockpot with a chuck roast. YOLO.

Miscellaneous – Autumn “Dates” Night Bread from Farmhouse Rules

I made these with Critter. It is supposed to be a loaf but muffins were just faster.

Friday Food Round-Up!

Marcus went on a business trip this week and didn’t get home until Thursday so I lived off the land. AKA on leftovers and on salad kits and on leftover pizza.

Sunday – Red Chicken Curry from Cravings: Hungry for More with Steamed Rice and Broccoli

Did you know that this meal makes a ton of leftovers? Because this is what I ate all week.
