We'll be trying out a bunch of new recipes this week that we'll be sharing as we try them so be sure to stop back.
Here's our Menu Plan Monday...
Chicken Fajitas - Using up the tortillas leftover from last weeks Shrimp Tacos. - RESULT - Always good especially with the Tequila Lime marinade.
Hearty Baked Potato Soup - from Get Rich Slowly, this is a request of Matt's. Sounds perfect for all these snowy days we've been having & we'll use up the Easter ham. - RESULT - A thick & rich winter soup!
Whole Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta & Lemon - from Giada De Laurentiis. Matt saw her making this the other day on tv & thought it sounded like something we'd like. - RESULT - So wonderfully flavored with the lemon & light too. Plus this goes together very quickly!
Spinach & Chicken Calzone - We're going to use our favorite pizza crust & make up the filling. - RESULT - These came out pretty good though took longer to cook than I thought.
Stir-fried rice with pork - I love to get this when eating out so I thought I'd try my hand at making it at home - RESULT - A pretty simple recipe that had the flavor I was looking for.
This week's cupcake is Sweet & Salty Honey Peanut from Cupcake Bakeshop. I don't have the same kind of honey as her so we'll see how much changes I have to make to the recipe. - RESULT - I liked the mellow sweetness & flavor of the honey but wanted more saltiness & peanut flavor.
