Man, this has been a weird week. I got sick (thanks a lot, hubs), and so did not want to cook. Thankfully, I pulled through anyway.
First up, Green Chile Turkey Tacos from The Girl Who Ate Everything.
These were quick, easy, and fun! What more can I ask for? I served these with a creamy coleslaw for some crunch and contrast. I can see how these would be a perfect clean-out-the-fridge meal too. You could add any veggies you like/have to the meat mixture. I’m thinking of making these again, but Greek-style with a delicious tzatziki sauce with fresh summer cucumbers.
Next up, Thai Curry Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup from Sweet Peas & Saffron.
Soup may not be the first thought for a summer dinner, but this was delicious, and extremely calorie-friendly. I loved the way the flavors meld together. I think next time I would puree it in my blender (here’s the one I use) because I didn’t get it quite as smooth as I wanted with my immersion blender.
Do you have a Red Robin near you? I LOVE their Whiskey River BBQ Burger. It’s the only thing I order when I go there. So when I saw this Copycat Red Robin Whiskey River BBQ Burger on Love Bakes Good Cakes, I had to make it immediately.
Yum, yum, yum! The BBQ sauce was amazing, and the burger came together perfect on an onion bun (my one modification when I go to Red Robin).
Last up this week, Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice from Kevin and Amanda.
Four ingredients, and it comes together in almost as quickly as you can cook rice. In my case, it only took me ten minutes, because I had some leftover brown rice (whenever I make rice, I make a big batch and freeze the extra. It makes my life super easy, and they store flat in freezer bags.) For something so easy and minimal, this had fantastic flavor! I didn’t add anything to it.
That’s all for this Food Friday. See you Monday.
