You guyyyys! Happy Sunday!! It’s been awhile *cue Staind* since I have done a EEE post- about a month to be exact! It’s been weird with being out of town and the fact that I’m craving pasta like its my job, buuuut here I am. I thinkkkk this will be my last one of the “regular” Elle’s Everyday Eats posts. I have one cued up for next week about easy foods when I’m in a hurry, but other than that, I think I will bring it back when I feel like it or even just post more regular one off recipes. I hope you have enjoyed this series!! Continue to send recipes if you have them :)

RecipeCook-off Winning Chili

Adaptations: I topped it with greek yogurt and shredded gouda!

Wine pairing: Malbec

My thoughts: Very good! Especially on the chilly/rainy days we have been having. I have my mom’s super thick and tomato-y chili in mind, so I think all others can’t compare!

Nick's Rating: 9

Any leftovers? yes! It’s better the second day, too!

Can I make it vegetarian?  Sure! Just remove the meat.

RecipeCheeseburger Lettuce Wraps

Adaptations: I topped the burgers with swiss cheese and also added more “stuff” to the patties, like onion and jalapeno. I also made sweet potato fries!

Wine pairing: Syrah

My thoughts: It’s different from a burger, because no bun, but a great alternative!

Nick's Rating: 9

Any leftovers? Yes! I made 3 patties, so we had 1 leftover.

Can I make it vegetarian?  Grab a veggie or black bean pattie!

RecipeBeef Stroganoff Casserole

Adaptations: I used my Free to Eat Pasta in this and greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Wine pairing: GSM such as Cotes du Rhone

My thoughts: My mom alway made beef stroganoff! This was interesting because it had tomato in it! I don’t remember hers having it in there, but this was still really yummy!

Any leftovers? Yep! Casseroles are my fave because of this!

Can I make it vegetarian?  Remove the meat?

RecipeCranberry BBQ Meatballs

Adaptations: I only made about 15 meatballs, so I tried to make 1/3 of the sauce.

Wine pairing: Sangiovese

My thoughts: I’m not a huge bbq sauce person, but I love lil smokies in a bbq sauce, so I thought I’d like these. They were okay. I’ve made lots of other meatballs that I enjoy more.

Nick's Rating: 8

Any leftovers? Yes, about 3 serving total.

Can I make it vegetarian? not really.

Recipe: Spicy Sweet Potato Chicken Bowl

Adaptations: I added goat cheese crumbles on top!

Wine pairing: Cab Franc

My thoughts: Really good and pretty healthy! I really enjoyed this.

Nick's Rating: 9

Any leftovers? Yes!

Can I make it vegetarian?  It would be really good even w/o the meat.
