Turkey Chipotle Chili

Made a big batch of this deliciousness to take with us to Pagosa Springs.  I think we used 2 pounds of turkey again, and 3 or 4 cans of beans.  Was enough to feed the crew.

This may have been based on


but we served it over polenta instead.  Roasted the veggies in the oven.  No eggplant, but used potatoes instead.  Squash, tomatoes, peppers.

Was really quite good.

Beet Risotto

Or as Julia would say, purple rice.  The standard beet risotto from Deborah.  Turned out quite good this time.

Da Brats

So this doesn't really deserve a blog post, but I'm doing it anyway.  Made some beer brats and teriyaki chicken kabobs from sprouts for Julia's party.

Salmon Burgers

Salmon burgers from whole foods.  Corn/bean I think?  Anyway, had those with more chopped veggie salad and corn on the cob.

Chopped Veggie Salad


Radishes, green beans, cucumbers, scallions.  Feta and lime juice and other barnacles.  This time we chopped some romaine and added it to the mix.  It'll be delicious.

Spicy Turkey Burgers


More or less used the ingredients (except no garlic this time).  Used some hatch chilies that we had roasted instead of jalapenos.

Served with corn on the cob and chopped salad.  Which I'm going to blog separately.

Pork Tacos

Pretty good bday week.  Hardly cooked at all

But anyway, made the standard crock pot pork tacos.  Rachel got a bushel of hot/medium hatch chilies that we added.  Yuuuummm.

Next time don't add a full can of water to the crock pot.  Maybe a half a can.

Indian Spiced Vegetables

Rachel Ray, pg 101.  Really was a 30 minute meal this time.

Red sauce Pasta

In a break from tradition, we did not make tacos tonight.  Blame it on a half marathon the next morning (1:59!).  Pretty standard red sauce pasta.  Peppers and mushrooms, spicy italian sausage (that was waaay spicy this time).

Sesame-Soy Salmon

One pot, pg 54.  I think we basically doubled it.  Maybe only used 1.5 c rice.  Salmon, cabbage, carrots, snow peas, shiitake mushrooms, carrots.

Turned out quite delicious.  We cooked it to right about 45 minutes I think.  I don't think we put the avocado in the pot, but I may be mistaken.
