Meal updates from last week:
I cooked all of the planned meals from last week except for the chicken parmesan from @skinnytaste. The top meal of the week was the turkey meatloaf, it was juicy and full of flavour.
This week we will be eating at home Sunday-Thursday. We are in full holiday mode, our house and trees are decorated and my holiday baking continues! This evening we had family over to decorate our Christmas trees and enjoy a meal. I wanted to make chicken cacciatore in my crock pot, but I wasn’t left with enough time after getting back from our tree cutting. Instead, I made chicken cacciatore in the oven from @jocooks. It was amazing! We ate it with a baguette and caesar salad.
- Turkey meatball soup with spinach and orzo from @simplyrecipes this seems like a very hearty soup so I won’t be serving anything on the side.
- Oven-roasted fajita chicken with cheese from @juliasalbumblog we will eat this with cilantro-lime rice.
- Mediterranean meatball gyros sandwiches from @lifetastesgood
- Chicken caesar burgers from @iowagirleats I will serve these with waffles fries and raw veggies.
Last week I baked two more Christmas cookie recipes both from @sallysbakeblog. I made peanut butter kiss cookies, which were one of my gramma Illa’s favourite cookies. I did use her recipe, but the one on Sally’s site is very similar. Later in the week I made raspberry almond thumbprint cookies, which are shortbread with a dollop of jam. Although we do eat a few of the cookies, I mainly bake them to give them away during the holiday season. I usually make a few other kinds of cookies, stay tuned for those recipes!
