Week of February 18th, 2013

My friend Angela and I decided to plan a week of meals for each other. It was SO fun! So she picked all of these recipes (that her family loves) and we all enjoyed trying out a bunch of new dishes.

*Chicken Edamame Stirfry- a simple week night meal that was really easy to throw together. I used whole wheat spaghetti

Community Group

*Green Chili in the crockpot- this was yummy but more like a stew rather than a chili.

*Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchilada Skillet- My favorite of the week. Definitely making this one again! Buying the pre-cut butternut squash from trader joes makes this a quick meal.

*Pork and Cabbage-Slaw Burritos- Mark's favorite of the week. It was a burrito using the green chili from earlier in the week.

*Toad in the Hole with Toffee Date Pudding- a shout out to their British life (they are currently living in England). Both of these recipes were awesome. The toad in the hole was a huge hit- no leftovers at all!

Week of February 11th

*Red Posole- Homerun. Loved the tender pork in the flavorful soup broth. I've had this recipe saved to make for about 2 years now. If Trader Joes sold hominy, we'd have it more often.

*Shredded Chicken with Apricots- doubled this for Community Group. I overcooked the chicken (I only had the crockpot on "keep warm" all day but it is a crazy overachieving crockpot) so it was a little dry and the apricots and dates kind of disappeared

*Coconut Shrimp Curry- Another awesome recipe recommendation from Becky. This is a 5 star recipe and will be made again soon!

*Butternut Squash Tortilla Soup- I loved the flavor and the different textures in each bite.

Carrot and Tomato Soup- Mark's not a fan but I needed to use up tomatoes, carrots and basil so this fit the bill. Also, Mark isn't a huge soup person in general so I think I overdid the soups in the menu this week :)

*Crispy Cheese Pulled Pork Tacos- AMAZING. 5 star recipe for sure. Taco shells made out of fried cheese?? Get out of here!

Snacks
Homemade Applesauce
Chocolate Cake (For Valentines Day)

Week of January 28th

Wild Rice Casserole

Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork- I've eaten this recipe at least 4 times (dinner swap, dinner at my sister's, dinner at Kryssa's, a meal someone brought when we had a baby) but I've never made it myself! It is so fantastic!

Community Group

Baked Potato Bar

Baked Pasta (I'm trying to finish up the Costco jar of marinara I used in this recipe a couple weeks ago)

*Cheesy Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole- I made this for the dinner swap. So good!

*Grilled Chicken Caprese- We made this for the Mullaneys and everyone said they enjoyed it. I think next time I would use balsamic vinegar rather than red wine to give it more flavor.

Pizza and green beans for kids while we go out to Cirque De Soliel
