Last week I told you guys how I was going to make several dishes from fellow bloggers’ websites and let you know how they turned out!
The first dish I ended up adjusting to make it my own and I posted the recipe here. The pork was awesome and the sauce was fantastic. It was loved by three our of four (the 2 yr old wouldn’t try it), which is always an added bonus.
The second dish I made was Honey Ginger Chicken Tenders from How Sweet it Is. The only thing I changed was that I reduced the ginger by a tad because it seemed like a lot for the kids. Everyone, including the kids, loved these and they will be made again for sure!
The third dish had me on a mission to find Mochiko flour, which led me to the Asian grocery story across from my house AND ended up with the discovery that the store also carries garlic plantain chips, which are TO DIE FOR and I haven’t had them since we lived in FL over 2 years ago! I am marinating the chicken now (smells delicious) and we will be trying this tonight so I will let you know what happens!!
This brings me to our menu for the upcoming week. I was trying to make sure I added some new dishes from my “Recipes I Need to Try” board on Pinterest that is growing out of control. I am ready to hack that baby to pieces and get these recipes new homes, either in the trash or on a permanent rotation board!
* Greek Seasoned Grilled Pork Chops with Oven Roasted Potatoes & Zucchini (I will post the recipe next week)
* Salmon & Salad (still haven’t figured out what to do with it. Suggestions, please!!)
If anyone has suggestions for the salmon, I would love to hear them! I don’t eat salmon so it’s always a challenge for me to come up with a new way to cook it. It’s too bad I can’t cook it without touching it or smelling it… I need to work on that.
What will you be eating this week?
