Happy New Year! I know I am a bit late, but I just had to take last week off and recuperate. I am finding myself a bit tired these days in my last trimester so I am trying to take it easy. I think I am finally rested and ready to continue on. I am not entirely sure of my menu plan this week but at least I have a jumping off point.
With the cold weather of December, January and February I am planning a series on soups, stews and chilis, so you will probably see a few soups, stews and chilis on my menu over the next few weeks with the recipes coming in January and February. You will also be able to see a few of my soup recipes on Destiny In Bloom that went up yesterday, so please make sure to go take a look. You will find Sausage and Black Bean Soup, Peasant Soup, and Loaded Baked Potato Soup. If you have any soup, stew or chili recipes you think I should try please leave it in the comments below.
This last week I didn’t post a menu, nor did I make one. I went to my mom’s for some R and R for a few days, and when I got home I just pulled food from the freezer to warm up. By the weekend I was feeling much better, so I finally made my son his long awaited Fish and Chips, and I must say it was really good. The only thing I would suggest is whipping up some cole slaw to go with it, which didn’t cross my mind until I was done frying the fish. Oh well, next time.
Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.
Sunday: Eating at in-laws
Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup
Thursday: BBQ Meatballs, Fried Smashed Potatoes, and veggies
As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe. On a side note, I received the cookbook – The Pioneer Woman Cooks, which is why so many of her recipes are posted this week. If I am ever at a loss for something to cook I just go and browse her cookbook and her site and I always find something delicious.
