family meals: week 68

April 6, 2014

tacostacosShrimp Tacos with Chipotle Sauce. The shrimp looks fried, but it isn’t. Ben was convinced I fried them, but that panko coating really makes it look that way. I mixed some cayenne, chili powder, cornmeal, and panko to coat the shrimp. The flavor sort of got lost with all the other things going in the taco, so next time I’ll try marinating the shrimp, and adding more heat to the breading to see if that helps the flavors pop out more. My chipotle sauce is spicy, just the way we like it. Brave started putting it on her tacos too. She totally loves spicy foods!

tacostacosWhite Bean and Soyrizo Tacos with Chipotle Sauce. I made this for our Dinner Club Thursday. Who needs real chorizo when soyrizo does a totally good job?! I actually made two sauces this evening, my spicy chipotle and a creamy lime chili one, which was much more mild.

Week of 4/7 – 4/11
Monday: White Bean Burger with a Cilantro Sauce
Tuesday: Pad Kee Mao (I still haven’t found the right noodles, that’s why I didn’t make it last week.)
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: White Bean Chili (always the easiest thing for me to do for a big group)
Friday: Sushi night

Last week was totally taco week and I didn’t follow any recipes. It was all just experimentation, but really, can’t go wrong with tacos, right?! We will still have white beans leftover from Thursday that I think I might try my hand at turning them into burgers for Monday, fingers crossed they come out edible. I really am having so much fun in the kitchen these days (and I’m getting faster too)!
