Week of November 10, 2014

Holla' Spinach Beef and Barley Stew- I left the cayenne out this time so I could feed it to the twins. After devouring a bowl, they slept for 7 hours in a row (a first!). We're pretty much going to eat this every night now so we can sleep.

Sweet Potato Packet Tacos- Please make this if you haven't recently!

*PF Changs Mongolian Beef (add broccoli)- I loved the coating the cornstarch gave the beef. It felt very restaurant like

*Greek Quesadillas- so much flavor!

*Easy Bahn Mi Sandwich- My homemade buns were a bust but the sandwiches themselves were delish

Trader Joes Pumpkin Soup and cornbread plus zucchini

Dinner at Nanas

One Skillet Mac & Cheese with Broccoli- VERY good- great weeknight meal

Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich- Mark told me when we got to church that he left the burner on low so that the onions could caramelize while we were at church. I was convinced the house would be on fire when we got home. But it wasn't and the onions were awesome )

Double Decker Tacos- Everyone should try these once. They are so fun!

Community Group dinner- Lasagna

Dinner at Beckys

Week of October 26, 2014

One of my birthday presents from Mark was 4 weeks of menus planned with grocery lists printed out. Such an awesome gift! He went back to some oldies but goodies with one new one thrown in each week. 

One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta- this was a repeat of the bomb a couple of weeks ago that burned. This pot didn't burn but it still wasn't my favorite.

Fish Tacos- Always delicious. Maybe not a great weeknight meal, when we're trying to get out the door for gymnastics. But...still delicious. 

Buffalo Chicken Panini- I crockpot the chicken/bbq sauce to make it easier

Slow Cook Thai Chicken- I could eat this once a week

All-star week- October 20, 2014

We eat a lot of repeats at our house but sometimes it's fun to pull out the big guns for a week of good eatin'

Crockpot chicken with black beans- It's been a long time since we made this recipe but at one point it was the recipe most talked about from Bites. It's just so simple!

French Dip Sandwiches- Yup

Coconut Shrimp- We made 40 shrimp for the 5 of us eating shrimp and it wasn't enough. I think Saisha and James combined had 25.

Deep Dish Pizza- For Mark's birthday!

BLT Salad- I think I have three different blt salads on Bites and this one is my favorite

Week of September 29, 2014

*Roasted Winter Panzanella- I thought this was delicious but my not-a-fan-of-squash husband didn't want it for leftovers. I would love to make this again- maybe for a girl's luncheon or something :) I used walnuts instead of chestnuts

*Asian oven pulled pork- juicy, flavorful and incredibly versatile! We ate it over rice for dinner and then in quesadillas for lunch the next day.

*Honey Ginger Marinated Flank Steak- Tasty- especially over salad

Community Group

Thai turkey burgers- delicious as always

Pumpkin pancakes

Earl Grey Tea Loaf

Week of September 22, 2014

Grilled Chicken Tzatziki- The cucumber relish took a bit prep ahead of time but was worth it

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup- I thought I would just throw all the ingredients into the crockpot for this but it did not work out :( The orzo swelled up until it was one congealed mass. Not so appealing. I would try this again using the normal stovetop directions

One Pot Pasta- Also a bomb. I didn't watch this close enough (it's not like I have any distractions around right??) and the liquid evaporated and burned on the bottom. Mark said it was fine but I felt like the whole meal tasted burnt.

Cheddar Waffle Breakfast Sandwich- Crazy delicious and about 34987 calories per bite

Chopped Orzo Corn Salad- so many flavors going on in this delicious lemony salad. 5 stars!

Chicken Avocado Lime soup- Simple and tasty. I used 3 cans of broth instead of 4 and only one jalapeno. It was four servings so double if you have a larger family.

Week of September 15, 2014

Aidell's Apple Chicken Sausages and Asparagus

Chicken Zucchini Casserole- not our usual kind of cooking (can of cream of chicken soup and a box of stovetop stuffing mix are two ingredients) but the pinterest picture lured me in and it was indeed, delicious

Meatloaf- Pioneer Woman's recipe. I'm usually not a meatloaf fan but this one is wrapped in bacon. So there ya go.

Turkey Bagel Burgers- This quote alone made me want to make these:  "if you dress it up just right, a turkey burger can be a nice change of pace and—theoretically, anyway—a nice little foray into healthy eating, unless of course you serve said turkey burger on a very large bagel with a goat cheese spread, avocado, and next to a pile of homemade fries."

Spicy Pasta Salad with Smoked Gouda and Summer Fruit and Halloumi salad- both delicious. One last weekend of temperatures in the 80s made me excited to put a couple of salads on the menu.

Spinach Artichoke Pasta

Roasted Pear and Chocolate Scones
