Did everyone survive Snowmageddon this past weekend?! Fortunately, we did, only really being snowbound Saturday, with about 9 inches of snow. We were able to get some house chores we had been putting off done and also had lots of relaxing time. Sometimes, a mandatory stay-cation day does a family good! So, let’s take a look at what was on our menu this past week.
Saturday – We hosted our monthly supper club. This month’s theme was “crispy.” The Weekend Chef made beer battered fish and I made these Korean Fried Chicken Tacos from Half Baked Harvest.
Sunday – We went to our neighbor’s birthday party and ate dinner there.
Monday – The Weekend Chef made Chicken quarters with a tomato sauce, garlic bread and kale chips.
Tuesday – I made Kale, Sausage and Butternut Squash Linguini Pasta from With Salt & Wit. I adapted this recipe quite a bit, but overall, it was a tasty enough dish. Not sure if it’s something I’d repeat, but I’m glad I finally cooked with butternut squash! It had been awhile.
Wednesday – We had Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken Sandwiches from Diary of a Recipe Collector. We used chicken quarters and thighs, which worked out great, since the chicken didn’t dry out. I omitted the bacon and we just had cheddar cheese and tomato on the sandwiches. We ate this with a Caesar Salad. The kids really liked this dinner.
Thursday – We had breakfast for dinner with Mexican Chorizo Hash from Cooking Light, March 2014. Breakfast for dinner is always a win in our house and this was no different. I think it could have used a little more seasoning/flavor but I liked the addition of the spinach and roasted bell peppers.
Friday – We had homemade cheese pizza. Pizza is our usual Friday night meal, especially since Friday nights have become one of our busiest nights of the week!
