Week of March 16, 2015

*Smoked Salmon Chowder- TJs sells smoked salmon! The whole family gobbled it up

Sloppy Joes

*Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken Stacks- a VERY simple crockpot recipe for taco salad

*Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper White Bean Chili- I only used one jalapeno so my kids wouldn't think it was too spicy and it was a hit! The bacon crumbles take it over the top

Pasta, Kielbasa, asparagus skillet delivered by Cari. "Can I cook a delicious dinner and bring it over to your house?" "Um, yes."

Pizza Delivery (when dad's out of town, momma's callin' pizza)

Week of March 9th, 2015

*Barbacoa Pork Tacos- James LOVES barbacoa from Chipotle so I tried this one out for him. I was actually nervous that it wouldn't live up to Chipotle and be a disappointment. But it was AWESOME with a capital A. Everyone loved it and we will make it again soon. 5 stars

*Roasted Cauliflower and White Cheddar Soup- as I expected, everyone in the family hated it but I enjoyed it

*Cajun Shrimp Tacos- Another bomb this week because it was way too spicy for the kids. Mark and I loved them but the meal was tainted by all the desperate pleas for MORE MILK

*Creamy Chicken and Quinoa Cordon Bleu- this is a casserole that was VERY easy to throw together and got rave reviews from the company we served it to. My kids affectionately referred to it as, "Mom- I like this mush!" I tried out the homemade cream of chicken soup recipe to use in it and will definitely use that again.

*Pesto and Sausage Baked Ziti- great for a large family. We actually had leftovers!

*Thai style fish and Creamy Couscous Packets- I loved this make-ahead meal. We used Mahi-Mahi from TJs

Week of February 23rd, 2015

*Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce- a very mild curry sauce and delicious with naan

*Stuffed Zucchini Enchilada Boats- I used ground turkey in this and would love to repeat it this summer if we can grow any zucchini in our first attempt at a garden (odds are nothing will grow with my track record of keeping plants alive)

Honey chipotle Chicken Bowls- We just had this the other week but I had to repeat for my mother-in-laws visit because I knew she would love it

Crockpot Chicken with Black Beans- a 5 star oldie but goodie. We brought this in a ziplock bag and our crockpot to the Great Wolf Lodge for a delicious home-cooked inexpensive dinner.

Shrimp Salad with Lime Buttermilk Dressing- another oldie but goodie
