Taste of Tuesday

For today's Taste of Tuesday, instead of posting one recipe for you I'm simply linking to all of the great recipes I've been making lately that I've discovered through the blogosphere.  Thanks to so many wonderful bloggers I haven't had to crack open a cookbook in ages. 

Here's what we are eating this week:

Sunday - Spicy Tomato Burger, recipe via Red Gold Tomatoes.  Read more about this here
This is a great way to spice up your normal burger recipe.  I made a plain patty for Jack that wasn't so spicy and served with roasted sweet potato sticks. 

Monday - "That's a Wrap" Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps for Emmy Night!
These lettuce wraps are delish and super easy.  Bonus that the rest of my house loves them too.  Lucky me there is usually enough for my lunch the next day too!

TuesdayTaco Turkey Casserole for our weekly "Taco Tuesday" theme
I love this recipe from Megan of Honey We're Healthy & Honey We're Home.  Again, super easy and there will be leftovers for lunch the next day!

Wednesday - Sweet Corn and Zucchini Fritters with a big salad
Ya'll, these are to die for!  I made them last week as an appetizer when we were hosting Jason's family and they were such a hit that no one was hungry for dinner.  Thank you so much Natalie for sharing this recipe a few weeks ago!

Thursday - Black Bean Taco Soup with Guacamole for the Texans Game
I've made this a handful of times and I love that it is made in the crockpot.  Thursday afternoon/evening is a little hectic for us so I will be happy to have dinner ready to go when I get home.  This will be the perfect meal to eat with some other munchies like fresh guacamole for the Texans game. 

Friday - Pizza Night!
By Friday night, the kitchen is usually closed.  The routine is for Jason to either pick up something on his way home from the office or we order in.  Not super healthy.  We will see how the week goes and maybe mama can find the energy to whip up something a bit healthier for us!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to hear what's on your menu this week. 

Linking up with Emily and Kate for Tuesday's Recipe Swap. 


  1. Seriously, how do you manage to cook every night after working a full day??? I'm so impressed. I think planning has to be key and I think your husband seems to be pretty good in the kitchen too which is so nice :) I want to make those corn and zucchini cakes!

  2. YUM! Those spicy tomato burgers look delish and my husband is always looking for a new spin on burgers :)
