I have a complete lack of motivation for most things right now, blogging included, so I'm resorting to an easy blog post... my menu for the week. And this stuff should all be good because I've made most of it before. If I haven't made it before, I'll mark it with an asterisk. I'm relying on tested recipes because the last few weeks I've been trying out new random recipes, and while they haven't been failures, they haven't really been successes either. You're welcome for not sharing all of those with you. :)
Tuesday: Mulligatawny Soup (Chicken Rice Curry Soup)
- When searching for the recipe I use online, I came across a Pioneer Woman version that I'm going to have to try next time.
- And here's a kid-friendly version from Family Fun
*Wednesday: Overnight Stuffed French Toast
Thursday: Alfredo Pasta
-Alfredo Sauce is one of Princess Sparkley's favorite foods and this is simple because all I do is cook a fun pasta and add a jar of Alfredo sauce (usually Paul Newman's). Then I serve it with chicken (sometimes breaded) and broccoli. Jed and I prefer it all as one dish, the kids like their broccoli and chicken on the side. We top it off with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
*Friday: Tomato Tortellini Soup
Saturday: Chicken Bundles
- The link is basically my recipe. I got the recipe from my roommate Tiffany back in college and it's been a huge hit with everyone I've ever made it for. I use green onions instead of sweet onions. And I usually add some garlic salt. I use the 1/3 the fat cream cheese. I've never used Parmesan cheese before, but I think I might now. And I don't use butter or Parmesan on the outside, I just roll each bundle in Italian bread crumbs. Oh, and I serve it with rice and broccoli (we're big broccoli eaters here) and I heat up some Cream of Chicken soup (the herb flavored variety if I can find it) with a little water and use it like a gravy.

with (dessert TBA)
*Monday: Fish Tacos with Avocado Sauce
-Sorry, it's a member exclusive recipe, but you can sort of see it. If it ends up being any good, I'll try to share it with you.
