Is it Monday already?! The weekends go by way too fast! We had a jam-packed weekend filled with fun. For those new to meal planning you can read more our meal planning process. Here is a look at what was on our menu last week:
Saturday – We were snowed in from Storm Jonas. We ended up making some pasta with sauce. Super simple.
Sunday – The Weekend Chef made tilapia, crispy hash brown potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Monday – I made Greek Wedding Soup from Every Day with Rachael Ray, December 2008. I made this recipe once before and this was as tasty this time as it was the first time I made it! ‘m not a big fan of “soup as the meal,” but with the orzo and meatballs this was filling enough. I used ground turkey instead of the ground lamb or beef that the recipe called for. I also used vegetable stock instead of the chicken broth, which led to the dark colored broth.
Tuesday – I made Chicken with Chorizo and Tomato Salsa from Cooking Light, January 2015. I was able to finish up the chorizo that I had used in last week’s Mexican Chorizo Hash. I added avocado slices as well. This dish was really tasty. I served the chicken with roasted broccoli and rice.
Wednesday – I made Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Florentine Pasta from Pinch of Yum. This recipe was a bit disappointing. We found it a bit flavorless, even though the ingredients sounded good together.
Thursday – I made Loaded Breakfast Totchos from Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen. This was by far the kids favorite meal of the week! Breakfast for dinner usually is! Crazy enough, I ended up leaving the bacon out of this dish, since it already had sausage. Tater tots topped with sausage, cheese, homemade country gravy and scrambled eggs and scallions. Yum!
Friday – Friday was a crazy, busy night and I ended up making Steak & Bleu Cheese Salad with Blueberry Balsamic Dressing from The Creative Bite. I left out the blueberries in the balsamic dressing and found it tasty without. This salad was really tasty with all of the “stuff” which included mixed greens, steak, blueberries, blue cheese crumbles and walnuts! Unfortunately, we found it wasn’t very filling (or we didn’t eat enough of it!). We ended up eating dinner at 5 PM before we had to go to a school event. By the time we headed home from the event, around 8:30 PM, we were all starving! We ended up making a quick stop at KFC and bought a popcorn chicken and fries snack.
