Meal updates from last week:
All meals from last week were very good. Our most favourite recipe was the meatball fondu, the kids ate theirs with pasta, the adults had theirs with toasted ciabatta. We ended last week hosting dinner with friends. The theme was Mexican, I made pork tacos we also had shrimp tacos, guacamole, layer dip and mud pie.
This week we will be eating at home Monday-Friday, Saturday night my husband and I are going to a fundraiser, and then Sunday we are headed on a family vacation. Tonight we celebrated Thanksgiving with family, this year we decided that we were going to have ham instead of turkey. It was such a nice change, we enjoyed scallop potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts, kale salad, biscuits and of course Pumpkin Pie!
On the weekend my mom shared with me one of her new America’s Test Kitchen magazines. I had a chance to browse the recipes, and decided that I will cook five of their recipes this week. I have looked through their magazines before and also had the chance to try a few recipes. This will be a first for me, to cook from one source for the entire week. We will see how things go!
- lime ginger chicken served with rice and steamed broccoli.
- cashew pork with snow peas and carrots.
- chicken with arugula salad
- turkey meatballs with lemon rice
- pasta with sausage kale and beans
I have also been eyeing a few other pumpkin recipes that I am excited to try. These cookies sound easy and are also GF. I am a sucker for granola and this one sounds amazing! Take your Dinner List 31 to the grocery store for ease of shopping.
