Chile Stuffed Burger on Fresh Focaccia. So good. In fact, it was made twice this week! Who can resist fresh bread and a yummy, spicy burger?! The first time I made it, I used serrano peppers and didn't just stuff it in the middle but just mixed it in the meat. The girls had a separate batch as theirs was sans spicy peppers. Ben and mine was loaded with spicy peppers. I didn't have the bread the recipe called for, so I baked my own. The second time I made it, I used the Anaheim Chiles. I much prefer the serrano peppers because it had much more kick. Bread is one of those things that are so easy to do, you really ought to do it more often, but just don't because it sounds hard. It really isn't. Of course, our fave with any burger is sweet potato fries. Such a good combination.
Cold Soba Salad with Dried Shiitake Dressing. The girls really loved this one. Actually, they really love soba noodles, so I knew this was going to be a fan favorite. We topped ours with tofu for protein. Ben and I loved this too, but of course, we have to add our own spicy sauce because we prefer dishes with kick. It's just our style. My spicy tolerance has gotten so much higher since being with Ben.

I'm late in posting this because I took a few days off to focus on prep for my Brave's birthday, but I couldn't neglect this post because meal planning has really helped our evenings become smoother. Are you a meal planner? How do you decide what to make for dinner?
