What’s For Dinner: Back in the Saddle

Bacon Brussels Sprouts - Rae Gun Ramblings

I’ve finally started cooking again. Between adjusting to life with Teddy and then the craziness of my Halloween orders it’s been FOREVER but I missed my weekly menu planning so I decided to bring it back.

My nieces are really into the show Chopped and watching it with them has really convicted me over how much we eat out. If you’ve never seen the show the contestants are given random (oftentimes undesirable ingredients) that they have 30 minutes to make a dish using the ingredients. The thing is everything always looks delicious. I figured if they can make something with their crazy ingredients than I should be able to make stuff with my whole fridge, pantry, and second freezer full of stuff. Am I right? I think something that will help me is that when I write up these plans I’m only allowed to put stuff that I have all the ingredients on hand to make

And I also thought it would be fun to share what I actually ate, you know if I can remember to take a picture.

  • Top two Thai food from Chanon Thai to celebrate Loy Kratong
  • MacCool’s Irish Pub can’t pass up half price appetizers on Tuesday nights!
  • Chicken Artichoke Sausage, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Bacon Brussels Sprouts (I cooked!)
  • Delicious Focaccia that Heidi made, my sister smoked and grilled I contributed a salad and brownies. All of our tummies were happy. I was too busy chowing down to take other pictures.
