Sausage Sandwiches with Chimichurri, Caramelized Onions, and Radicchio

Sausage Sandwiches with Chimichurri, Caramelized Onions, and Radicchio

Since as you may know, *ahem* I love to cook, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that I can easily whip up a full dinner on a weeknight for myself and whoever I’m with.  And when I say dinner I mean a main course, vegetable, and starch side because to me, making a pasta dish for dinner is like taking a break.  But sometimes it’s good to take it easy, especially when that comes in the form of sausage sandwiches with chimichurri, caramelized onions, and shredded radicchio.  Originally I was going for an Argentinian choripan vibe here, but I don’t think they’d appreciate me putting caramelized onions and radicchio on there so we’ll just call them sausage sandwiches.

Fresh Masa Empanadas

Fresh Masa Empanadas | Cravings & Crumbs

These fresh masa empanadas have been hanging out on my list of recipes to post for far too long.  I made them on a rainy day back in March and they were so delicious that three of us devoured the entire batch before dinner time, yet  for various reasons they haven’t made it onto the blog until now.  Either I had just posted a Mexican recipe (if you can’t tell by now, I like Mexican food a lot), or the weather was too hot, or I had cooked something else that I was just so excited about that I couldn’t wait to post it.  But really, those excuses aren’t any good because there is no bad time to have freshly fried empanadas.

Ribeye Lettuce Wraps with Salsa Criolla

Ribeye Lettuce Wraps | Cravings & Crumbs

With all the summer fun I’ve been having this year I’ve missed a few more weeks of posting here than I’d like.  After two years of saving up my vacation days, I told myself to say yes to any opportunities that came my way and to follow through on promises to visit friends that I’ve been putting off for years.  A partially off-the-grid trip to the mountains in Lassen County, followed by a girls getaway weekend to Pismo Beach has left me feeling relaxed and fulfilled in life, but definitely left this blog by the wayside.  So, before I jet off to New York to visit one of my oldest friends tomorrow I leave you with these grilled ribeye lettuce wraps with salsa criolla.
