Roasted Chicken Thighs with Clementines and Roasted Vegetables

After my dad and M visited, they had left me with some chicken thighs, clementines, carrots, and celery. I didn’t have any plans for them but decided to throw them together into something. Somehow they all worked together and made something delicious. I served it on top of rice to take advantage of the sauce.

Spinach and Ground Beef with Walnuts and Pasta

One weekend I decided to see what I could make with some ground beef I had in the fridge. I liked a recipe I found in my Back Pocket Pasta cookbook, but I didn’t really follow any of the ingredients…hers used escarole, sausage, pine nuts, and garlic. So, I was inspired and made my own pasta dish.

What are some favorite recipes? Ones that I can make during the week. Often, we have leftovers during the week, but I like being able to make one or two simple meals that are fresh but easy. This is definitely an easy meal that tastes really good.

Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze

Sausage Risotto with Balsamic-Roasted Shallots

Here I am with another risotto recipe trying to convince the Fudgelet that risotto is delicious. K and I really liked this, and the Fudgelet ate it, but he was still complaining some. I don’t get it…he likes rice and sausage, he likes them together, and he likes congee which is basically a Chinese version of risotto. Oh well. Anyway, the adults loved it and he ate it regardless.
