Menu Plan Monday ~ Nov 14/11
Hello everyone! Okay so last week I served a delicious meal and yes I get super excited about it because it doesn’t always happen that way. My friends say the reason my cooking doesn’t improve is because I rarely make the same recipe twice. Could be but gosh wouldn’t that be boring if I simply linked to the same recipes here week after week? It’s gotten so I really enjoy the challenge of finding and sharing new recipes with you and I always know that a recipe is a great one when it works out for me the first time trying. A recipe not even I can screw up? Now that’s my kind of recipe! I don’t want to have to make a recipe four and five times to get it just right. I want it to be fabulous the first time I make it. Am I asking too much? No I don’t think so, I’ve got a whole recipe index of great tried and true recipes that says otherwise. Besides I prefer to blame the recipe and not my lack of cooking ability when a recipe doesn’t turn out so great…hahaha. What do you think?
Oh so what is this great dish I am talking about (geez I get easily sidetracked don’t I?). It was the Make-Ahead Unstuffed Shells and it was soooo good.
I will admit that as I was making this dish I wondered why it even called for shell pasta and not just any pasta because you sort of just mix everything together and the shells don’t get stuffed. Well let me tell you somehow the cream cheese mixture gets trapped into those shells anyway. I was totally fascinated by it (it takes so little) and my first thought was “this would be great for company!”. So there you go. As I was doing my MPM blog tour this evening I noticed a few others had it on their menus last week as well. What did you think of it?
Anyone else try out a recipe last week that turned out amazing? Share the link with us in the comments!
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday: Rustic Skillet Chicken
Tuesday: Prairie Pork Chops served with rice
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Saturday: Waffles of Insane Greatness (family favorite)
Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own)
