Weekly Eats: Variety

This week's meals ran the gamut of flavors and ingredients, but they had one thing in common: they were all worthy of repeating. We were saying mmmm all week!

1. Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin from Let's Dish, served with Lemon Garlic Asparagus from Say Yes. After a few recent fails, it was good to have a dish that restored my faith in the slow cooker. This was so good! On Let's Dish it shows the pork served in slices, but for me it was so tender it fell apart. Definitely not a bad thing. 

2. Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls from Iowa Girl Eats. Guys, Aaron (Mr. Meat and Potatoes) ate this and loved it. Jona ate this and loved it. If you're still a little iffy about jumping on the quinoa train, make this...it will convert you. It was packed with flavor! I left out the coleslaw mix and added sliced red bell pepper instead. (I snap those babies up when they go on sale...I love red bell peppers!) 

3. Pepperoni Pizza Burgers from The Pioneer Woman. Pizza meets burger, tell me how that can be bad? This may not have been the healthiest, but it sure was good. 

What was on your menu this week? 


  1. Oh that pork loin looks so good, but I just had a bad experience with trying to make a balsamic reduction. I might have to try again.

  2. This all looks so good! I want to eat the pizza burgers!!
