On Our Menu: October 3 - 9

I had high hopes for the two recipes I tried last week from the Real Simple cookbook. The Spiced Mini Burgers with Couscous Salad were pretty good but nothing extraordinary. Christian thought it was too salty and I didn't even use as much salt as the recipe called for. Also, the hummus was unnecessary. I think I would have like the Tortellini with Eggplant and Peppers a lot better had I not put the fresh parsley on.  Even though I wasn't impressed by the two new recipes I tried from the cookbook, it still holds some all-time favorites like Angel Hair with Spicy Shrimp and Cool Southwestern Salad with Corn & Avocado.

This week's menu has already changed from when I took the picture. Instead of Black Bean & Cheese Quesadillas, tonight we're having mushroom quesadillas with oyster mushrooms that I grew myself! I plan on writing a post in the future about the whole journey of growing mushrooms. It's very interesting so stay tuned!


oh, that cilantro avocado cream sauce has me drooling! sounds delicious!

I made a similar dish to the tortellini recipe you mentioned. This recipe that I made has spinach in it, yum! Maybe you would like that better than the fresh parsley? It also had lemon in it.
