PLANNING OUR MENU + Guest Blogger with a GIVE A WAY on Monday

On Monday I will have a Guest Blogger posting on my blog.  She has a fun spring craft she is showing.  AND SHE HAS A GIVE A WAY!!!  Come see her cute craft touches, and check out her crafting blog.

SUNDAY - Final day of celebrating St. Patrick's Day.  Crock Pot Corned Beef.  (So easy and the meat was tender and full of flavour.)  Cabbage, asparagus, green beans, Doug's green jello salad, green salad, baked potatoes (done in crock pot) and rye bread (turns out no one likes rye bread).  For dessert Lindsay made lemon lime poke cake .
MONDAY - Pesto Chicken Bake,  (made in a covered pot in the oven with red potatoes and tomatoes-very easy), the easy pot bread, green beans and fresh strawberries with tangerines.

TUESDAY - Doug requested eggs and hash browns (used planned over baked potatoes from Sunday).  Strawberries and sliced tomatoes.   Doug asked me to put this on our 30 Day/30 Meal rotation.  Done!   I also made Blueberry Streusel Cake.  I am still working on that recipe.  The flavour is great, but it lacks in the appearance dept.  I will share that recipe when it works.
WEDNESDAY - A Chicken Fajita soup.  This has been on my to try list for awhile.   It was not as good as I had hoped it would be.  (And the planned overs were more boring.)  I also made a new biscuit recipe.  Loved the taste and texture (a real lot) but was disappointed that the self-rising flour did not rise much.
THURSDAY - "Pick-a-Can"   (Our basketball team plays + Pinewood Derby night + Special Needs Road Show)  This was my plan.  After I left to help set up the Pinewood Derby track, Emily brought home Papa Murphy's pizza for everyone watching the big game.  (We lost :0(
FRIDAY - Planned Overs
SATURDAY -  I made a Tortellini soup for dinner.  It did nothing for us.  All in all, a very disappointing week of new recipes.

Sorry you had a disappointing food week. I am looking for a different pasta recipe. Got any good ones? Kind of sick of the traditional spaghetti and meatballs? I do liked things baked. :)
