Menu Monday 9/12

I can't believe it's Monday again, can you? The weekend after a 3-day weekend can be so hard confusing. I find myself expecting to have that extra day to relax, but here we are on Monday... We had a fun day yesterday watching the San Francisco 49ers with friends and family for the first day of NFL football. Now, I am not a football fan at all, but I do love making the food for the occasion and hanging with all our friends. Below you'll find 2 of the dishes I made, as well as some things we'll be cooking this week. 

S'mores Stuffed Brownies (Picky Palate) -- I made these yesterday for dessert during the football game. I really liked them! They were beyond chocolatey + chewy!

Quick Creole Shrimp (Kraft) -- I found this "quick" recipe on Kraft's website and I hope the flavors are as good as they promise to be! 

Cobb Salad (Eating Well) -- I've made this healthier version of a Cobb salad before, this time I'll share the details with you and not just the dressing.

Chinese-style Rice Soup with Chicken and Ginger (Food Network) -- This is a new slow-cooker recipe I'm trying out this week on Monday. The prep sounds easy enough and I'm hoping the soup is as good as it sounds / looks too.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad (Snappy Gourmet) -- I made this yesterday and it was all gone by the time we cleaned up! I forgot to take pictures of it, so I'll just leave this link for you if you'd like to give it a try for yourself. 

I hope you've had a wonderful Monday!
