Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you!

Here’s this week’s edition of What We Ate For Dinner. We actually tried a new recipe this week, and it turned out great. Go us! Haha!

Sunday: Spaghetti with meat and veggie sauce

We had a bunch of toppings (chicken, pancetta, peppers, onions, and mushrooms) leftover from pizza night, so I threw them all together in a meat and veggie sauce that went on top of spaghetti (all covered in cheese).

It was a super easy dinner and a great way to use up leftovers. I also made extra for lunch for both Mal and me the next day.

Monday: Shrimp stir fry

Asparagus was on sale at Whole Foods last week, so I  bought a bunch and sautéed it with mushrooms, green bell peppers, onions, shrimp, olive oil, and soy sauce. Nothing fancy about this meal, but it turned out well and came together in no time.

Tuesday: Chorizo-Potato Tacos with Black Bean Salsa

Hey, a new recipe! We loved this one. Quick little note: Cover the potatoes and chorizo when you cook them together. I didn’t do this at first, so the potatoes took quite a bit longer to cook compared to what the instructions said. I also left out the radishes in the black bean salsa””it was still excellent!

Wednesday: Chicken Ole with rice 

We love this meal and eat it quite a lot in our house. I’m surprised we don’t get sick of it! This time, I added some white rice and black beans (leftover from the previous night). Delish!

Thursday: Tuna melts with oven baked fries and steamed green beans

This meal was quick and easy. Mal gave Quinn a bath while I made dinner and then we all ate together.

Friday: Salmon burger with salsa + Baked Red Potatoes with Olive Oil, Parmesan and Roasted Garlic

Mal ordered wings and cheesy bread for dinner, so I whipped up a quick (and healthy) dinner for myself. The baked red potatoes from Alexia are so good and they only take about 20-25 minutes to cook. I threw them in the oven as soon as I got home from working out and, by the time I showered and made my salmon burger, they were done.

Saturday: Homemade pizza 

It was a snowy Saturday evening, and I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything elaborate, so I grabbed a pizza crust from Whole Foods while I was out running errands and then topped it with sauce, cheese, and veggies that we already had in the fridge. Easy pizza dinner!

Question of the Day

Try any new recipes last week? Were they winners or losers?



  1. I’ve been making a Spanish tortilla a couple of times a week. So easy (eggs, potato, onion, and then I add canned tuna or salmon) and perfect! Hoping to share the recipe this week.

  2. I’ve gotten overloaded w my Blue Apron meals bc my husband had a dental procedure where he has to have a lot of liquids for a few days. That meant I couldn’t really make the meals, so I skipped next week and will be using these up as his mouth gets better. Guess I could have planned that a little better haha.

  3. I am planning on making bean and ham soup for the first time today. I like having soup for my lunches. The Chorizo-Potato Tacos look amazing. What kind of noodles did you use for your spaghetti?

  4. I tried to recreate a pizza the husband and I love at a local pizza place here (known as the Bird’s Nest). I couldn’t find an exact recipe for it do I am trying to figure out the recipe myself through trial and error. first-time attempt was tasty but not quite the replica we want. So, while good, we qant to keep tweaking to get it exact. Still yum though. It was a Proscuitto, Asparagus Egg Pizza topped with balsamic glaze. I made a homemade crust (easy and only takes about 45 minutes to prepare for baking).
