Green Chile Chorizo Cauliflower Casserole. Didn’t get home until late and was able to quickly throw this together. Great flavor combo. Might try ground pork/turkey/chicken with a tiny bit of homemade taco seasoning instead of chorizo in future.



Grilled Rosemary-Rubbed Pork Chops with Grilled Corn. Super cheap meal to prepare. The rosemary amped up the pork chops. Ate on the road for lunch the next day, and it still tasted great cold.



Kielbasa with Red Cabbage and Broccoli Slaw. Using andouille sausage instead of kielbasa. Sprouts had andouille from the butcher counter for $3.99/lb vs packaged kielbasa for $5.99/12 oz. Beautiful colored dish. The sausage flavor infuses in the cabbage as it sits overnight.



Grilled Chicken Drumsticks with Garlic Marinade with Oven Baked Zucchini Fritters. Easy.



Paleo Chicken Burgers with asparagus. Ended up saving the asparagus. Served burgers with some parmesan shavings and leftover zucchini fritters. Will go without Italian seasoning next time.


Breakfast: Tex-Mex Hash Breakfast Casserole. Using ground chicken thigh instead of beef because it was cheaper and had a later “use by” date. Used both red and green enchilada sauce. Also served it as a side to the lettuce wraps. Will repeat. Topped with Greek yogurt and cilantro.


Lunch/Dinner: Crockpot Cuban Pork Lettuce Wraps. Good recipe for a weekend. Pork cooked while I ran errands and then I had a flavorful yet still light meal when I got home.
