Lots of exciting things to cook this week! I officially have my kitchen counters back so it feels great to be able to get back in there and cook some amazing food! We really need to do another round of once a month cooking, but just haven’t had the time lately. To be honest, with the kitchen under construction it’s hard to get much of anything done in there. So in stead, we are testing out a few of this month’s recipes and if we like them we’ll put extra together to pop in the freezer. That might be my plan from now on. Instead of taking a whole day to cook. I might try a recipe … if I like it I’ll make it again the next week, just in a triple batch so we have one to eat that night and two for the freezer. We’ll give it a shot!
Here’s what we’ve got for the week:
Monday – Chicken Parm Wraps (we took a night out and never got to these last week)
Tuesday – Chicken Fajitas (ended up having an dinner with the in-laws and skipped this one last week too!)
Wednesday – Dijon Pork Loin Roast ( actually making it with pork ribs because they were on sale – OAMC recipe tester)
Thursday – Pineapple Chicken (#95 From Rachael Ray: 356 No Repeats)
Friday – Chicken Tortilla Salad (it’s actually a soup recipe from 365 No Repeats (#97), but I’m skipping the soup part and making it into a salad – more to come later!)
Saturday – Cheddar Studded Tex Mex Meatloaf with Scallion Smashed Potatoes and Spicy Pan Gravy (#101 from 365 No Repeats)
For those of you that were following along earlier in the year, you can see that I’m getting back to my quest to cook from front to back of 365 No Repeats. I’m up to recipe #101 so we’re 1/3 of the way there!! I’ll try to make sure I post the ones we really like as we go.
We are also running dangerously low on baby food for short stuff so I am also trying to make 5 batches of baby food, which these days doesn’t seem to last very long. I’m making:
~Strawberry, pineapple, banana
~ Pork and sweet potatoes
~ Potato, zucchini, pea
~ Peach, appricot
