Menu Week 3
I think i'm planning too many meals -- we are working really hard not to eat out -- and that means I need to cook. But even the best laid plans -- cause we had to have an emergency pizza night last week. lol.
Baked Ziti - this was delicious. I mean really good. And a good alternative to lasagne, which is a little more time consuming. The recipe calls for this to cook at 375 for 45 minutes covered and another 10 uncovered. That was way too long! I would say cook for 20 minutes covered and another 10 uncovered.. But it was a KEEPER -- and if you weren't sure about it -- even Josh liked it!
Loaded Baked Potato Soup - Making this tonight.
Spinach and Pasta Salad - Made this for enrichment and served it to the family too. It was lovely and a super make ahead dinner. My little kids weren't big fans of this, but it is delicious.
Mexican Tortilla Soup - Making this later this week. It's totally a soup kinda week.
Man-Pleasing Chicken - This was sooo good. I mean so good. But sadly, a couple members of my family -- especially Troy -- doesn't like mustard -- which is the main ingredient of this dish. It was YUM, but not a keeper for us.
Scones -- This is fired dough. And yummy. A standard for our family! Let me know if anyone wants a dough recipe.
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Mexican Tortilla Soup
Ginger Soy BBQ Chicken
Chicken and Vegetable Curry
Savory Apple Chicken Sausage: Recipe from Janet:
1 large tart apple, peeled and diced (small)
2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 pound ground chicken
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and shape into patties like
you would hamburger patties. Heat a large skillet and coat with cooking
spray. Cook patties over medium heat for 5 or 6 minutes on each side or
until no longer pink. If your patties are larger than about 3 inches, you
may need more cooking time.
