A new batch of recipes...


I am still loving meal planning - why did I not start this sooner!? Okay here some more recipes we tried and our take on them...

A: This was good - super easy too! I found there is too much oil so I would half that for sure next time.
J: Flavor was alright, just way too much oil. Overall, not a huge fan.

A: I really liked this and it was so simple to throw together the night before and then just plug in the next morning. Leftovers would be great on a bun too. 
J: Super good.

A: I wasn't crazy about this one, I think the honey made it too sweet and there was too much sauce. But it was very simple and I do like a good meat loaf.
J: Not even close to as good as Alison's real meatloaf.

A: Loved this. But I learned you can't put hot things in the blender. Stupid for me not to know that!? Let's just say I had soup all over the kitchen AND it burned my arm AND Justin was not happy. BUT Lily also loved this soup. And I learned something new. But it was very tasty!
J: This was pretty good.

Broccoli Chicken Mac & Cheese
A: This was delicious. I used cream cheese rather than the laughing cow cheese only because I forgot to buy it and I threw in bacon because Justin loves it. :)
J: Also pretty good, I'm glad it was cream cheese and not Laughing Cow. Not as rich.

Grilled Cheese Burger Wraps 
A: These are a very simple and tasty dinner. I didn't grill them (why I didn't think to put them in our panini press I have no idea! duh) so I just put them under the broiler in the oven for 5 minutes.
{I had no dried onion so didn't add that but added Frank's Hot Sauce}
J: Wasn't a huge fan of these. Why wouldn't you just use a bun?

There we go. {Justin's comment made me laugh.}

On a side note:
A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to my Grandma Chris who just received her Master's in Theological Studies!! Such an enormous accomplishment. We are very proud of you Chris!! Congrats again!

Haha I can totally see Justin making each of those comments. The honey seasame chicken and the soup look good! I've never been a big fan of meatloaf though. I need to get back into meal planning. Really dropped the ball on it!

yummy recipes! I can't try a different meal every night of the week only because I'm bummed out if I don't like it. Lately I haven't even been able to cook anything because just the site of meat grosses me out and makes me gag!
