How on earth is it already Friday and time for another Good Food Reads? I don’t know about all of you, but I am soooooo ready for this thing we call a weekend! My son recently turned four and we are celebrating his birthday with his first more-than-just-family birthday party. He is so excited and I am so tired. Lane is also having a birthday party this weekend and I know that we are both appreciating easy, comforting foods this weekend. I’m personally going to be trying a new Winter Lasagna with butternut squash and brussels sprouts tonight and making a double batch of chili and Jalapeño Cornbread for tomorrow night after the party! We are supposed to have beautiful weather all weekend – 45 degrees in Minnesota in February!! – so I think I’ll come up with something for my hubby to grill on Sunday. Can’t wait. What are you all cooking this weekend? Need some inspiration? Check out this week’s Good Food Reads…
Start your weekend off right with Whole Wheat Banana Bread Pancakes with Chocolate Chips from Ambitious Kitchen.
Or for a more savory Saturday morning, try this Chilaquiles Frittata Bake by Joy the Baker.
You know I love a one-pan meal. This One Pan Rosemary Chicken with Penne and Vodka Sauce from Eating in the Middle rockstar Andie Mitchell is calling my name.
This Baked Potato Soup from Carolina Farmhouse Kitchen would be perfect for a lazy afternoon lunch. Just add a small salad, a cozy couch, and a good book!
In super exciting (at least to me!) news, Yotam Ottolenghi is now a contributor to the NY Times Food section. Check out his first article, “Eat Your Sugar.”
One of the things I love about Ottolenghi is that he uses really interesting colors and flavors in all of his recipes. It often requires a little patience at the grocery store. I’m thinking this recipe for Butternut Squash and Green Curry Soup by Samin Nosrat is going to do the same, but doesn’t it sound so good?!?! I’m thinking this would be a great addition to Sunday dinner.
Well friends, that’s it for this week’s Good Food Reads. I hope this weekend is a good one, filled with great food and people.
