Ever since my early temp retirement I have been on a cooking hiatus! This weekend marked a first in the Thaxton household- dinner/lunch at home Friday , Saturday, and Sunday. In the beginning, an always open for biz kitchen, was an attempt to save money but now its really because... I. Love. it. Trying new recipes and always having a stocked fridge has won over my husband's and my heart.
This week I am using recipes from my new favorite blog, Picky Palate. Also, my friend Heather's recipe from Saving Money Living Life. I am babysitting Tuesday and Thursday night so I made sure to make dishes with lots of leftovers. Friday my mom is coming in town for the weekend so Saturday and Sunday we will try some new restaurants.
Here is our feast for the week...
Monday- Ranch House Crock Pot Pork Chops with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes and green beans
Wednesday- BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup
Friday- Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake
I am always looking for new, simple, and delish recipes so please please let me know if you have any. Who knows I might post it for next menu monday!
