I have a bit of a food secret. I really don’t love vegetables. There I said it! Oh, I can eat a good helping of asparagus or a serving of cabbage or green beans. But the idea of a vegetable platter does not thrill me. There I admitted that too! I am a carnivore and no matter how hard I have tried to love vegetables it’s just not going to happen! I still try to get vegetables into my diet but beets taste like dirt and peas will never pass my lips. Now that I have gotten that off my chest… here’s what’s on the menu this week… including vegetables!
I’ve made these scrumptious tacos before from Budget Bytes. Oh, YUM!!!!
- BAKED BEEF AND BLACK BEAN TACOS
If you make one thing this week Nani’s Sauteed Chicken should be it. I remember eating this as a child and it continues to be a family favorite! I call this Peasant food. Every bit of flavor is coaxed out of the simple ingredients!
I have a new culinary blog I LOVE! Seasons And Suppers is a GORGEOUS blog with images that are so luscious and recipes that will make even the most novice cook want to be a chef! Oh, I got lost in this amazing foodie blog!
Isn’t this a beautiful fish dish? It looks amazing and it’s so good for us too. And it can be made in 30 minutes. Wow! A winner, winner fishy dinner!
Spanakopita is a real treat here at StoneGable. It’s flaky and filled with the delicious flavor of feta and spinach. It’s really quite easy to make and can feed a crowd!
- GREEK SALAD
I was looking for an easy and delicious dinner recipe. I am a huge tostada fan. And these BBQ ones are perfect for a super easy supper! I could eat Tex- Mex at least three times a week. I know, YIKES!
- CHICKEN TOSTADAS
- REFRIED BEANS
- FIXINS’- CHOPPED TOMATOES, CHOPPED ICEBERG LETTUCE, FRESH SALSA, SOUR CREAM, LIME WEDGES
SUNDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
No recipe for this easy pork and sauerkraut that my Bobby adores. Just get a 4 lb. boston butt pork (shoulder roast) and a pack of refrigerator sauerkraut (do not drain) and large yellow onion. Brown the pork in 1 TBS olive oil on all sides. Put sauerkraut and sliced onions in the bottom of a slow cooker and nestle the pork roast on top. Cook on low for about 8 hours until the roast falls apart. Serve on a bed of mashed potatoes and a side of applesauce. This is such an easy and traditional family meal from my neck of the woods!
- PENNSYLVANIA PORK AND SAUERKRAUT
- MASHED POTATOES
- HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK
I have such a crush of sorts on bloggers who bake. I think they sprinkle sweet love around wherever they go! And I love galette makers. I can actually make a galette. I think they make them for all of us who profess not to be bakers to help us feel successful. Oh, look at this galette from Live Eat Learn. So beautiful!
Have a Scrumptious week!
