Week of December 29th, 2014

*One Pot Mexican Skillet Pasta- This was AWESOME. Every family should make this :)

Copy Cat Orange Chicken- Mark picked this week of recipes and I have to admit I wasn't excited about this recipe. I couldn't remember it and it didn't sound that great. But then we made it. And I remembered why I originally rated it 5 stars. SOOOO yummy.

Wet Burritos- A Mark menu wouldn't be complete without something beany and cheesy

Baked Potato Soup- Don't make this without doubling or tripling. You will not have enough. It's that good.

Balsalmic Grilled Chicken Salad- We did salad bar with the kids this night and I put out a ton of toppings in little bowls- carrots, snap peas, tomatoes, corn, sunflower seeds, chow mein noodles, etc. I thought it would be funny to put mini marshmallows out as a joke. The kids did not know it was a joke and when I told them I was just being silly and they couldn't actually put them on their salad, my oldest child started crying. Joke Fail.

Week of December 22nd, 2014

Costco Pizza

Bacon/cheddar burgers (mix from Double D meats)

*Kalua Pork- this was crazy easy (3 ingredients) and actually tasted like slow smoked meat. I was a little skeptical of the recipe and wondered if the liquid smoke flavor would take fake but it was really, really good. This would be a great thing to make for a summer party with a taco bar spread. It feeds a lot of people!

Christmas Eve dinner at my sister's

*Creamy Spinach Gratin- Very good and tons of flavor but TONS of work. If I didn't have to microwave each of the 5 boxes of spinach individually to defrost, then squeeze each one in a towel, then make a rue, etc I might think about making it again. Maybe I should have just left them in the fridge over night...just a thought.

*Sweet Potato Casserole- I loved the addition of the orange flavor and that it was completely pureed until smooth

*Mel's Kitchen Cafe Slow Cooker Chili- I think my dad's chili is better but this was nice for a quick throw in the crockpot meal. I used chunks of stew meat rather than ground beef.

*Cinnamon Roll Cake- for Jesus' birthday party!
