Menu Plan 6/21
Okay so I am not too proud to say that last week's attempt at cooking from one cookbook was a disaster!
I started out by making the gazpacho thinking that if I made it in the afternoon, it would be chilled and ready to eat by the evening - wrong. On top of that, the Zip-Loc bag I put it in had a hole so there was gazpacho all over my fridge the next time I opened it. That should have been taken as a sign because the next recipe I tried was equally fiddly but the taste didn't deliver. Anyway, Mediterranean Cooking is leaving the building.
This week I am going to give Taste of Home's Prize-Winning Recipes a shot. Check back next week for an update.
We also have back to back parties this weekend - Diva's birthday party and a House Party for Febreeze. I'll let you know what recipes I use and from whence they came next week.
Monday - Marvelous Mushroom Soup & Whole Wheat Rolls
*UPDATE* Very tasty soup. Even Engineer liked it in spite of the tarragon in it. He has an unnatural hatred for tarragon so shhhhh...don't tell him it had any in it.
Tuesday - Inside-Out Brussels Sprouts, Squash, & German Cucumber Salad
*UPDATE* Veggie Girl stayed for dinner tonight and liked yesterday's soup as well so that recipe is definitely a keeper...which is more than I can say for tonight's German Cucumber Salad. Engineer actually said, "These were prize winning recipes?!" The Inside-Out Brussels Sprouts were so-so but as EM pointed out, I have too many recipes to fiddle with so-so. Quite right.
Wednesday - Favorite Meatloaf Cups & Orange and Avocado Salad
Thursday - Chicken in Basil Cream & Broccoli
Friday - Leftovers
This is part of Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.
