I wanted to try some new things, so I used my new favorite website, Pinterest, to find my meals. I looked for a long time at some of the delicious things my friends had pinned, but since I still have extreme aversion to anything tomato based, I was running short on ideas. However, I did find a few things that were worth making!
Monday- I made these beauties for dinner: Crack Potatoes and Cheesy baked chicken. They were both delicious. The crack potatoes are almost too good to be true, but next time I wouldn't put as much ranch mix in. However, this made enough for us to eat on for dinner and two 7x7 foil pans to freeze for later! Yum!
Tuesday and Wednesday- I made a great crock pot soup. It was a chicken and black bean based soup. I don't have a picture, but we ate on this for two nights!
Thursday- I was going to my bible study's Christmas party and decided to bring a desert. I had seen this recipe on pinterest and had to try it. It was so easy, and a HUGE hit. I served with gingerbread cookies, graham crackers, and sliced apples.Then there was Friday night, and by far, my favorite meal of the week. Trammel's mom makes a wonderful baked BBQ shrimp. I asked her for the recipe and the rest is history! It is sooo simple, but taste like you spent forever making. I served with buttered noodles and a wheat loaf.
If you are interested in any of these recipes, let me know! I would love to share the wealth! You will have your husband (wife, kids, or roommates) singing your praises!
Phewww, that is enough food talk. I promise to blog about my trips to Chicago soon, as well as all my new goodies for the nursery! OH MY GOSH.... I can't wait to share about the nursery! Are you on the edge of your seats yet?!? I am, I am.... I am on the edge of my new, adorable glider, swivel, recliner seat :)
