A few things we've been eating lately

I haven't had a ton of time to blog lately, but we've still been eating. I figured that it still might be useful to post abbreviated blog posts with just links to recipes we've liked. It'll not only help us remember what recipes were a success, but also maybe help you find some to try yourself. These are all easy and cheap, because that's what we can handle right now. All but the tortillas are great as leftovers.

Curried Apple Couscous
Super quick and easy. We doubled the apples, halved the butter, left out the pine nuts, and replaced the mint with cilantro and green lettuce. This is a house favorite! I'll probably do a real post on this when I have time. For leftovers, leave the greens separate to top the apples and couscous with after reheating.

Spanish Chickpea and Spinach Soup with Ginger
We followed the recipe exactly and it was great!

Tomato soup and cheese sandwiches
Takes longer from start to finish, but not a ton of active time. I browned the tomatoes in the pan instead of roasting to save time and dishes.

Tacos and quesadillas with homemade tortillas and refried beans
We fried the tortillas in a little oil to cook them because I over-oiled the cast iron, and they were great!
We only loosely based the refried beans off this recipe. Basically we cooked onions in oil until translucent, added pinto beans and garlic. Then we added lime juice, jalapeno- based hot sauce and salt to taste.
