Week of March 18th, 2013

*Creamy Homemade Mac and Cheese- Mark made this for his work's mac and cheese cookoff. Of course he put it on top of a hot dog (in a hot dog bun) and sprinkled bacon on top :)

Blue Chips Chicken Salad- A classic Heaviland meal

Broccoli and Sausage Pasta- Another oldie but goodie we make at least once a year

*Salmon in Lemon Brodetto with Pea Puree- this was kind of odd. But we all liked it. I found the recipe from Conrad Weekly Dinners which is a gal's menu plan that I enjoy getting ideas from. I bought all the ingredients before really knowing what it was and it turns out a Brodetto is kind of like a soup? So it was salmon on top of a pea puree sitting in a lemony-broth soup. Weird right? But we all gobbled it up. The kids ate as much as I did and we all agreed it was different but tasty.

*Bean and Cheese Enchiladas- perfect for community group and cooked up great after being frozen

Roasted Cauliflower and Carrot Soup (from Jackie)

1 medium head cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 lbs. carrots, peeled and chopped 1/2" pieces
1 yellow onion
4 cloves garlic
5 c. veggie broth
2 t maple syrup
2 T fresh dill
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place cauliflower and carrots in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat and spread out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast until soft, about 20min. Then heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until soft. Add the roasted cauliflower, carrots an broth. Simmer over medium heat for about 10min. Puree. Add the maple syrup and dill and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Week of March 4th, 2013

A totally random week of not really cooking much at all. Monday night we made roasted broccoli and ate a deep dish pizza from Trader Joe's I had in the freezer. Tuesday was Community Group. Wednesday James won an award at school so we celebrated by walking to McDonalds. Thursday we made Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic which was one of the best meals I have made in a long time. Friday my mom treated us to Chipotle and then Saturday and Sunday we were on vacation and cooked Teriyaki Bowls and Tacos in our timeshare :)

Week of February 25th

*Cilantro Lime Chicken with Black Bean and Corn- a great freezable meal that was easy to throw into the crockpot for a no-cooking day.

Community Group

Dinner at Cafe Lago- homemade pasta was delicious but without a groupon it is way too expensive :)

White Chicken Chili- another great freezer meal from the swap. I always love this recipe.
Cornbread Salad- LOVE this salad
