recipes I've tried this week

Busy, busy week I've had. I took Friday off to study for a test that I have on Monday (work related). Tried to study this weekend but I kept finding other things to do - laundry, put up our new Christmas tree (we got it for Christmas last year), clean... Next weekend is get out all the Christmas decorations and decorate the tree and house. I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit (especially when I get an email from Gap - 50% off regular price stuff...love online Christmas shopping).

Nothing terribly exciting in ways of meals this week I'm afraid. This first one was probably the best out of the bunch: beef enchiladas. Isabella devoured this one. I didn't make it as spicy as the recipe or else the kids would have complained.

how sweet it is

Next best dish was steak and pierogies. Simple and yummy because I LOOOOOVE steak.

Sausages with acorn squash was next. Didn't care for the taste of the asiago cheese...

Lastly, I tried this San Antonio Migas recipe. I accidentally opened a can of chipotle chilies in adobo instead of green chilies so I used them instead. It was alright. Nothing special...would have been better had I used the right ingredients. LOL!

It's real cold outside today so I am itching to spend the afternoon baking. Got some ripe bananas and for some reason, an over-abundance of frozen blueberries. Gonna try these buttermilk banana blueberry bread.

damn delicious

For some strange reason, I've had chocolate chip cookies on the brain. Trying this recipe.

I'm looking forward to having two weeks off at Christmas. I want to bake lots - and using ingredients like peanut butter and nutella, which I have to avoid during school days since the kids can't take that stuff to school.


  1. Again, I'am a big fan of your weekly recipes... I have read this a couple hours ago (I am in Paris) and I am now obsessed with the enchiladas...

    1. I LOVE anything mexican - especially enchiladas. Mexican is Isabella's fav too so I know at least one kid is going to eat well! LOL!

  2. Wow, pierogi! :)
    So fun to see them here!
    I LOVE pierogi, and many of the other stuff you're showing Julia, but after eating far tooooo many sweets these past weeks, I am on pre christmas diet ;) All the brownies I made recently and the oh so not diet friendly but mega tasty carrot cake I had last sunday, made my trousers shrink ;)

    1. I've never given the kids pierogies before and they gave them a dirty look...
      Love pants with elastic waist band...not the most flattering BUT EFFECTIVE! :)

    2. OHHHHHHH...I just found the perfect pair of elastic waist band HOLIDAY pants: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?navAction=jump&id=29998127&cm_mmc=CJ-_-Affiliates-_-rewardStyle-_-11292623&utm_medium=rewardStyle&utm_source=AFFILIATES&utm_content=rewardStyle

  3. Here's a different sausage (use the brats--Italian sausages aren't nearly as impressive) bake recipe that I love--and it's pretty quick to throw together. No cheese involved! http://www.food.com/recipe/bratwurst-bake-156725

    1. I might have to try that Jena as I have never tried brats before (not sure why but I'll take your word for it). Thanks!
