Pasta, fajitas, burger, all American!

Notice that I did not use All-American. Why? Because all these foods are mainstream American fare. What a boon to get up each day and decide what type of cuisine you want to eat and then run out to your local grocery store for the easily available ingredients. I could have added curries, sauerbraten, or Mongolian beef and still be talking about American food! Things have come along way since I was a kid!

Among the dishes that we have prepared this week are –

Spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic toast

It was so nice to reach into the refrigerator and pull out the sauce that we made last week – minimal work!


Shrimp fajitas with enhanced brown rice

I admit to using a packet of fajita seasoning. I also used the last bit of brown rice from last week enhanced with frozen corn, onion, and red bell pepper. Some Mexican spices kicked up the flavor.


Beef burger with salad

I do love a burger. John grilled this one after seasoning the meat and adding a pinch of baking soda to keep the meat juicy.

We are going to be heading home soon so cooking is done for this week. It was an enjoyable all American week.
