Sid loves tacos. I can’t believe how much he loves tacos. Almost every night when I pick him up from the sitter he says we are having some kind of tacos. Usually he asks for ‘bacon tacos’ something I have never made. When pretending to cook, he is usually cooking tacos, recently it was chicken tacos, but he has also made waffle tacos.
So I figured he needed some tacos this week for dinner. Tonight I am going to a book signing event so Dad has charge of dinner, and after him working all day I decided pizza was a great idea. I admit right now that I am sure I will stick to making soup on Sunday, but I am gonna try!
I am so happy for this holiday right now. I really need to finish up making Ian’s invitations. Cause they need to get in the mail this week. So I will be doing a lot of crafting today.
But that also means that I planned something for dinner that takes a little more effort, because I have the time. I am always so rushed during the week that I like to make something a little more time-consuming on my days off.
I wanted to cook something different with ground beef, and boy was I having a hard time finding something new. I am taking the recipe on Wed, and changing it to ground beef instead of chicken. That recipe is also gluten-free and works for a Paleo diet, I however, will be altering it because my family is neither of those.
Oh my goodness. This week’s menu plan goes into the new year. It is hard to believe this year will be done and we will be on a new one when I do my next plan.
When I did my meal plan last week I went ahead and wrote out this weeks too and boy was I happy I took the time. Who knows, maybe this upcoming year I will start planning a whole month of meals at a time
The other night was one heck of a night with the kids. They were coming down from all the Christmas activities and just fighting constantly. Especially over new toys. So it was a beer kind of night. I had this wonderful 22oz bottle of Vanilla Porter in the fridge that I cracked open, but only ended up drinking one glass of it….
Since it went flat, I wanted to use the rest for a pork roast. Last night I made this Balsamic Beer Braised Pork and it was absolutely wonderful. I actually had a pork tenderloin, not a butt roast, so I turned the oven temp down and only cooked it for about 45 minutes. I then thickened the sauce to make a gravy. Wonderful.
On Christmas Eve my sister makes Cioppino for dinner. I don’t like it but my husband loves it, and as it turns out so does Sid.
He did his happy food dance when he was eating the leftovers on Friday.
