It has been a hectic week around here. The one day I hadn't cooked dinner the night before to have the next day, we decided to rearrange the room. A few minutes after we plugged my laptop in to its new outlet home, buzzap, smoke, stinky electrical smell....yep, the power box on the cord fried. So, we had to "rush" out and get a new computer so I could continue my challenge. If you're a regular reader, you also know that I did a full Once-A-Month Cooking experience earlier this week. It was way fun and productive, but due to our vastly different family work schedules, my neighbor and I were up until 11 cooking. (And she even stayed up until 4 a.m. finishing up...I waited and completed the rest of my cooking in the morning. Well, later in the morning.)
But I remain thankful because, unlike my Midwestern friends, I am not without power or trapped in my home by massive hills of snow. I also had a great week on the blog again, launching Meatless (Vegan) Monday, which had several people joining my challenge. So, are you a food blogger? Meat-eater? Vegetarian? Vegan? Please consider Joining the Meatless (Vegan) Mondays Challenge.
On to the favorites for the week.
Spicy Pepperoni Pizza with Carmelized Onions from Two Peas and their Pod looks like it would be a delicious conversion. Yum.
As always, Miz Helen has a yummy-sounding recipe this week with Cranberry Sliders. That would probably be great with beef substitute.
Salsa from Closet Cooking: My husband has an obsession with tomatillo sauce and I LOVE avocado, this tomatillo/avocado salsa sounds right up our alley(s).
Need something to put that salsa on? How about Baked Potato Nachos? What? Yes, wedges crisped up nacho style and topped with gooey deliciousness.
After my yummy Chickpea-Cauliflower Bread experience, I think I'd make just about anything with the pair (though my husband says he's getting burnt out on chickpeas. Pfft.) Here's a great option from Mika Cauliflower Cake.
