Happy Monday! Here’s a peek at what has been cooking in our kitchen recently! You can read about how we meal plan if you are new and looking for some tips.
Saturday: I made Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti from Damn Delicious. I’ve made similar baked spaghetti dishes before and honestly, this one didn’t wow me.
I also made Halloween Candy Apple Crisp from Melanie Makes, using up some of our Halloween candy stash. This was actually almost too sweet for me. Any treat that I make is kid approved, and this was no different! My daughter even helped me make this.
Sunday: We had leftover Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti since there was so much!
Monday: I made Fish in Coconut Curry from Cooking Light, April 2014. This was flavorful and easy to make.
Tuesday: I made my own variation of the Cookie & Kate version of Roasted Cauliflower & Farro Salad with Feta and Avocado. Since asparagus was on sale, I roasted and substituted that in place of the cauliflower. I also served ours with a fried egg on top, because everything’s better with a fried egg! The kids surprised me with how much they enjoyed this dish (though boy wasn’t a big fan of the farro!).
Wednesday: I made Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers from Damn Delicious. I’ve only made stuffed peppers a couple of times and this was the first time cooking them in the slow cooker. This was easy and definitely repeat-worthy.
Thursday: I made Chicken Tikka Masala using Trader Joe’s Masala Sauce in a jar. I just had to throw it in a pan with the chicken and let it cook. Quick and easy! I served this with rice and veggies. This is a great convenience jarred food to have on hand. The only thing missing was some naan, which my daughter was disappointed that I didn’t have.
Friday: The Weekend Chef was home early and we went out to dinner at a local Thai restaurant. I had Beef Yellow Curry, though Tofu and Veggie is my usual favorite.
