First off, thanks for the support from the last post. I feel like some of these issues are just at Mr. A’s schools and others are universal. We’ll get through it, but I appreciate the kind words on the subject.
So for last week’s meals:
Sunday: Use leftover chili to make chili-mac and I made The Bread
***The chili-mac was delicious. I thought the bread was good, but Mr. A started to not feel very good from all the butter. May try it again and just use a little less butter.
***I know I mentioned this in another post, but please make her bruschetta. We didn’t use plum tomatoes because we couldn’t find them, but this was so delicious. Even if you don’t like tomatoes, try this. I usually hate tomatoes, but I could eat this all day. Add a little more salt to the tomatoes and you’re set. Yum yum yum.
Tuesday: Fried round steak and mashed potatoes and green beans.
***This was so delicious. Wow. Obviously not the healthiest option, but man it was delicious.
Wednesday: Hot dogs and homemade mac and cheese. Nothing fancy but Wednesday is usually Mr. A’s late night, so this should be easy and can be made whenever he makes it home.
Thursday: Outback’s coconut shrimp with spicy orange sauce, grilled vegetables, and fingerling potatoes. We received a cookbook with restaurant “secret” recipes and I have been craving coconut shrimp for a while.
****These turned out really well. I had a little problem getting the batter to thicken up and stick, but they were still so yummy. And I used peach preserves instead of orange for the dipping sauce and it was perfect. It was also really good on vegetables as a dipping sauce.
So this week, I’m taking it easy. I didn’t put together a bunch of new recipes. Husband is going to be very busy and getting home later, so I’m not really trying anything new. I’ll get back to some new and delicious recipes next week.
Monday: Frozen lasagna and salad
Tuesday: Bruschetta and asparagus
Wednesday: Chicken and rice bake
Thursday: Grilled Cheese and Soup
Friday-Sunday: We will be at my house and eating all sorts of delicious things. There’s a huge food festival in the city this weekend, so I’m excited for food and food demonstrations from famous chefs and wine and good company. Sunday, my uncle will be in town from Colorado, so we’re doing BBQ and watching football. I’ll be cheering for my city’s team, especially since they won yesterday, which is a HUGE deal for our team.
So what are you cooking this week? I need a yummy and easy dessert. What are your ideas??
