Short Rib and Cauliflower Lasagna

Short Rib and Cauliflower Lasagna

I had to make short ribs this past weekend, so I planned a dish around having some extra leftover shreddy beef deliciousness.I’ve been eating a veg-forward diet recently (I just made that word up.) so I wanted to load up this lasagna with all my current faves, cauliflower, mushroom, and arugula. I also made a really quick sauce in the food processor with manchego, ricotta, and some milk.  Historically, I have been averse towards lasagna varieties, but this one came out fantastic!

Persian Burritos

Persian Burritos

You guys know I love to make twists on the burrito from all over the world. There are even some good versions in Stuffed! The key to making this work is not just slapping a bunch of exotic ingredients into a tortilla, you really have to take the time to replace all of the burrito staples like rice, beans, meat, and salsa. This week Mandi and I made an incredibly tasty Persian take on the burrito. For the rice, we used a sour cherry rice complete with the crispy bits Persian rice is famous for. In place of beans, we used lentils. The meat was a classic marinaded chicken, salsa was a Persian tomato-cucumber salad, and for sour cream, we made a yogurt sauce.

Beet St. Louis Burger (Comes With Beet Sauce)

Beet St. Louis Burger (Comes With Beet Sauce)

I dressed up as Bob from Bob’s burgers for a halloween party on Friday, and my friends dressed up as the rest of the Belcher family (except we had no Gene unfortunately). I thought the costume would be incomplete if I didn’t bring some tasty and pun-based burgers going along the lines of the burger of the day Bob makes on the show. Instead of going with one of my favorite ones (like the chile relleno you didn’t burger), I decided to make up my own! I went with the Beet St. Louis Burger because I had the Red Sox on my mind.
