I am joining Menu Plan Monday hosted by Org Junkie and What’s for Dinner? Menu Planning Linkup hosted by Jill Conyers and Mommy Run Fast this week to share what we’re eating. The only topic I like to chat about as much as books is food! If you have a menu plan, feel free to link it up with our Small Victories Sunday Linkup. I’m always looking for new recipes to try.
Last week’s menu plan had a surprise healthy vegetarian hit, Mujuaddara (Lebanese lentils and rice) from Lydia’s Flexitarian Kitchen. With carmelized onions and lentils I figured the kids wouldn’t even try it. But I encouraged them to try a couple bites before they decided if they didn’t like it and guess what? They loved it! The littlest actually ate a whole bowl of it rather than the leftovers I had let him eat. Small victories!
This Week’s Menu Plan:
This week I asked Superhubby to help me plan the menu. We headed to Pinterest and found some restaurant recipe favorites we should try to make at home, healthier and cheaper.
Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken from Life in the Lofthouse, Trader Joe’s Chicken Gyoza Dumplings, Stir Fried Broccoli and The Perfect Brown Rice from A Small Snippet
Champagne Crock Pot Chicken from Mommifried with Rosemary and Garlic Red Potatoes from The Happy Homemaker. I hope the crock pot chicken will work with the sparkling wine we forgot to drink for New Year’s Eve!
Copycat Panera Tuna Salad Sandwiches
Pepperoni Roll Ups from Taste of Home and leftovers
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings from Suburban Epicurean with salad/fruit
