Foodie Friday–Best of the week

It’s Friday again and time for another round up of great food. This week has been a little crazy trying to get bad into the swing of things post-vacation but despite that we’ve had some good meals. Having a baby that can eat almost everything we can has been a great motivator to vary our recipes. We want her to be exposed to new things while at the same time eating things we really enjoy as well! As for the things we made this week, I would make all of them again which doesn’t happen that often.

This week our menu included:

Taco Night with Mexican Rice

(homemade “box tacos” aka hard shells with spicy ground beef using this homemade taco seasoning)

Beef and Bean Burritos

(these were awesome, great way to use leftover taco meat and I’m sure they would freeze well…we didn’t use enchilada sauce or the red sauce in the meat, and instead topped with shredded romaine and tomatoes.)

Winter Minestrone & Cheddar Scones

(Soup was excellent and was great in providing finger foods for Elizabeth. Also cheddar scones are a favorite around here adapted from Ina’s Cheddar Dill Scones.)

Smothered Mediterranean Chicken with Pasta

(This was also really good. I just oven roasted some grape tomatoes in lieu of the tomatoes per the recipe. Quick, filling, and really yummy!)

Homemade Pizza

(using Trader Joe’s pizza dough Smile)


What great meals did you have this week?
