I get a lot of questions about what we are having for dinner.
Next week I will post about how I menu plan for flexibility and success.
This week I'll tell you what we ate.
SUNDAY - Valentine's Day - Chicken Cordon Bleu, Cashew Pilaf, Asparagus, Strawberry Cream Cheese Pretzel Pie
MONDAY - Chili Dogs (hot dogs left over from pigs in a blanket for kid's lunch on Friday)
TUESDAY - new Chinese Chicken recipe (o.k., but did not save)
WEDNESDAY - Corn Tortilla Bake This recipe is in our 30 MEALS/30 DAYS plan. (An easy and fast family favourite. I also made a batch for 2 of my married kids for dinner. Bring back my dishes.)
THURSDAY - LUNCH - Baked Egg Rolls (from Red Couch Recipes ). Instead of frying, I brushed a bit of oil on the top and baked (seam side down) at 425* for 7 - 10 mins. I turned them over and baked 3 -5 mins. We really liked these. (I am making them again next week.)
DINNER - SLOW COOKER TOMATO BASIL SOUP (from 365 Days of Crockpot. Click on her Good Things Utah link.) with grilled cheese sandwiches. This was easy and Doug and I really loved it. The daughter that ate it said she liked my other recipe better. (My usual one is harder to make, but we will do a taste test.) This stays in my file. (I used 1 2/3 cup shredded carrots, no celery and 1/4 cup butter instead of the called for 1/2 cup.)
FRIDAY - Left overs. A kidult was having a party.
SATURDAY - Left overs from the party pasta bar :)
Do you plan your meals ahead of time? It saves money, time and stress.
As you plan your menu for next week try to include 1 new recipe you have wanted to try, and 1 tried and true. Have a great holiday week end.
