Because I’m hungry, because it’s 4pm, and because dinner is at least 2.5 hours away, please indulge me in the following food thoughts. Allow me to share the important conclusions I’ve come to regarding what I want to cook next week. Scratch that–what I will cook next week. Yes, I sense that the near future holds a massive grocery trip the likes of which our fridge hasn’t seen since last spring. But if you choose to look at these recipes, can you blame me I ask you?
Blueberry balsamic pot roast from The Noshery
Portabella and brie burgers from Aggie’s Kitchen
Butternut Squash mac & cheese from In Sock Monkey Slippers
Cannellini beans with polenta and veggies from Joanne’s Eats Well With Others
Spanish breakfast casserole from Kayotic Kitchen, one of my favorite food blogs
Three out of these five lovely recipes I found via Tasty Kitchen, Pioneer Woman’s recipe sharing site. Head on over there ONLY, and I repeat ONLY if you want to tease yourself into a near-death state of hunger by looking at picture after picture of deliciousness. Head on over there ONLY if you think you can win in the stomach vs. self wars that start roaring when dinnertime is both so near . . . and yet so far. Head on over there ONLY if you’re willing to accept full responsibility for taking your grocery budget and throwing it in the garbage–after shooting it full of holes, of course (to destroy the evidence that it ever existed in the first place.)
OK, I think I’ve made my point.
So . . . what are all y’all having for dinner?
