Oh my goodness. The CARNIVOROUS and anti-celery husband has been converted. I take no credit whatsoever for this winner-winner-veggie dinner. He started with a recipe from the PickyEater blog (which is well-worth perusing!), and proceeded to turn out a wicked chili that includes 3 cans of beans, celery and is completely meatless. It's not faux-Zippy's, our standard (turkey) meat chili, or the sweeter Farmer Kenny's chili, but it is definitely a keeper! We dressed ours up with some pickled peppers and Monterey jack jalapeno cheese. Super spicy and very satisfying.
In preparation, or perhaps in defense of Thanksgiving, turkey burger sliders with fresh cranberry sauce, and a Honeycrisp apple thrown in. We are practicing for turkey day!
Clam pasta and soyrizo. We made this awhile ago and it is long overdue to gt back in the rotation. Using the very last of the summer tomatoes. Love the gentle California stretch into fall/winter.
Variation on lemony-bacon farfalle with greens. After 16 meetings in two days, this will be a little bit of a desperation dinner. Pasta, Italian (turkey) sausage, arugula and a little chicken broth, red pepper flakes and garlic. And ice cream, straight out of the carton. Chunky Monkey is the potion of choice.
Oyako donburi. Since taking on FTE, the husband has been cooking quite often.This is one of my favorite meals. Nothing fancy, just good homecooking. Perfect way to end the week.
Very excited to be planning for Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks.
