Week starting July 24, 2016


Chorizo lettuce wraps. Top with cilantro, diced tomatoes, red onion, jalapenos and radishes.




Buffalo Chicken Casserole. Used 2/3 cup of Frank’s instead of 1 cup. May lessen even more next time. Crowd pleaser.


Sweet Korean Paleo Chicken Thighs with Cauliflower Rice. Back by popular demand (aka Ryan’s fav). Used 3.4 lbs of chicken thighs and doubled marinade recipe.



Mushroom Mattar Methi Malai. Made tomato puree with fresh tomatoes using an immersion blender (since food processor was busy). Used frozen peas and coconut milk that’d been refrigerated instead of coconut cream. All the spices can be purchased in small quantities at a spice shop. Ugly yes, but it’s also filling, flavorful and smells amazing.



Balsamic Chicken Thighs and Asparagus. Go-to recipe. Super quick to throw together marinade.



Grilled chicken drumsticks (with either jerk or Mt. Elbert seasoning) with Sauteed Okra
