[week 35] Overall a pretty boring week on the cooking front. I made two different types of meatballs… turkey and beef/pork combo. Very different results… Earlier in the week, I had some leftover ground turkey so I made these turkey meatballs with a greek yogurt/sriracha dipping sauce. I am so paranoid when cooking chicken and turkey I totally over baked them so they were a …

menu recap [weeks 29 thru 32]

daisi - August 13, 2012

The past few weeks, hell, months have flown by for us. Each week I’ve been meaning to do a “recap” and each week, I forget or it feels like not enough to “recap.” One recipe does not a recap make. Or would it be one recap does not a recipe make. Either way, you get my drift. Not a lot of activity going on in the …

Cucumber & Green Chili Topping

Monday: Fish Fillets with Tomatoes,  Squash, and Basil Again, I used the pre-made parchment paper packets, so much easier.

Tuesday: Pasta with roasted tomatoes and Italian chicken In an on-going effort to clean out our freezer (story of my life), I …

Of course P-Dub made an appearance…with the BBQ Whiskey Sliders… huge hit. And you can’t do football without …

I didn’t cook a lot this week, but I plan to cook lots of fun appetizers for the big game tomorrow so I thought I’d share in case you were still needing some ideas.

Since I was such a slacker last week, I went on recipe overload this week. On Sunday, I went to a super amazing store in OKC that is full of exotic, delicious, and CHEAP food called Super Cao Nguyen. Go, if you live in OKC, it’s quite the experience. Anyway, I found some naan, which I love, for a WAY better price than our grocery …
