Here is the link for Korean's tacos. These look delicious! http://www.today.com/id/52791481/ns/today-today_food/#.UmNMvyjrOw4 I am going to cheat a little bit with these tacos. I have some leftover frozen teriyaki chicken that I need to use up, so I am going to defrost that for the meat. I also am going to cook a huge batch of black beans in the crock pot all day long and I am going to add those to the tacos. Then I am going to use the black beans for tomorrow nights chili! I am serving dinner with a little sliced up pineapple and some tortilla chips.
Here is a great and easy black bean crock pot recipe.
Curtiss' Chili looks like it might be a lot of work, but it looks really good. Have you ever had chili with fennel in it? Me neither . . . should be interesting! I am going to serve the chili with yummy cheese and crackers. And again, I am going to cheat here. I cooked the black beans last night so I could use a cup or so with the tacos. So I am going to skip the 1 1/2 hours of cooking the beans in this recipe since I already have it done! Woo hoo! Also, I am going to freeze any leftover chili and use it for baked potato topping with melted cheese on top in the future.

Date night! Pizza for the kids and some fruit and veggies too!
Tonight is Chef Stone's Chicken Cacciatore. I haven't ever made this before, but I am excited! I am going to serve it with a green salad.

This looks too easy . . . BBQ Chicken Quesadillas. I don't think we need a recipe here, but I will pass it along anyway. I am serving this with green peas and I will probably use up the fruit from the week and make a little fruit salad. And if you want to cheat here you can buy the pre-made rotisserie chicken at your local grocery store!
This looks great. And it is screaming to be served with asparagus, but I am going to keep plugging along with Curtis and serve it with his brussel sprouts Here are the links.
I am not sure what I am going to make. Curtis doesn't really have anything else that looks appetizing to me (at least right now). So I am either going to whip something up from what is leftover in the fridge or round up the crew and head out. Have a great week everyone! XO And please feel free to send me your favorite chef or cookbook. I will use it! Thank you.
