I got some new cookbooks (I got them all for a great price and am loving the new recipes) recently and went through a few to find some new recipes. I made a few of them this past week, amazingly enough. Looking back I realize that I wasn't feeling well the whole week, but managed to make some pretty good meals despite being sick (except for a couple of meals.) I'm on my way to finally being over this cold and hopefully will be feeling all the way better tomorrow.
I have to tell you, I love having a picture of the finished product in a cookbook. They really help to decide whether I want to make it or not. That is probably one of the reasons I post pictures every week with the menu items. This week however, I was not all with it so the pictures either did not get taken (Avocado Soup) or I did not get a finished product (Sloppy Joes).
Here's the menu:
Monday: Cream of Avocado Soup (my son loved it, but neither Hubby or I enjoyed it a lot.) Somehow I did not end up with a picture of this, but I had a head-cold so it doesn't surprise me!
Tuesday: Feta and Cherry Tomato open omelet
Wednesday: Sloppy Joes
Thursday: Beef Stroganoff (made by my mom)
Friday: Orange Chicken - I made this recipe from Annie's Eats and we loved it! I added 1 Tbsp orange juice concentrate, substituted 3 Tbsp of the White Vinegar with Rice Vinegar, and reduced the brown sugar to 1/3 cup. One final note: if you don't do well with spicy (hot) food, don't add the cayenne pepper (or ground red pepper) to the sauce (you can still add it to the chicken dip.)
Saturday: Frozen Pizza
Sunday: Three Cheese Mac and Cheese I used Veggie Mac Pasta, hence the colors. Although I think my son thought the green ones were green beans!
Vote for the recipe you want to see next week. Herb Baked Eggs will be posted on Thursday!
