Menu Monday 3/19

Gosh, the weekend really flew by. We celebrated St. Patrick's Day on Saturday with our families! This was the first time Owen has been around for a big family gathering and it was so fun! Last night we watched the season finale of The Walking Dead. I don't want to wait another 6 months see what happens next (who is the hooded lady? and where are they going next?). We had Owen's 2 month doctor visit this morning (more on that later this week).

Anyway, here is what I have planned in the kitchen this week...
{clockwise from top left}
Man Pleasing Chicken (Witty in the City) - Someone pinned this last week and it just looks really really good. Cooking chicken in the oven is really easy, but can be so boring, so I'm always looking for a new way to spice things up. The best part? Only four ingredients! I will let you know how it turns out.

Review: This chicken was really good and as easy as it sounds. Keith really liked it, so much that he commented on it the next day, and he hates mustard--so that really says something, right? I'll make sure to take pictures next time. 

Detox Superfoods Salad (Yummy Mummy) - This salad from Yummy Mummy sounds so good, and good for you too. Its plain and simple. I'm going to add lettuce (seems right, right? I didn't see it in the original ingredients), and grilled chicken.

Review: This salad never claimed to have loads of flavor and be delicious. It claimed to be healthy and that is exactly what it was and we enjoyed it! 

Slow-Cooked Spaghetti Sauce (Taste of Home) - Last week at my hair appointment my hair dresser (She is really awesome, by the way. She is a mom of two young girls, does an amazing job on my hair every time and is full of positive energy) and I were talking about how much we love using our slow cookers to make dinner. We were sharing our favorite recipe ideas and she suggested I try making spaghetti sauce...so I came home and searched around until I found one that sounded right to me... and so I'm giving it a try! She said it always turns out delicious.

Review: Great base recipe. I made my own alterations and substitutions which I will share this week. 

Taco Salad - There's no real recipe here. I love the flavors of "mexican" food and taco salad is pretty much the healthiest way to enjoy it. I might spice things up a little this week and if I do anything noteworthy I will be sure to share!

Review: I just made a basic taco salad, nothing worth sharing really! 

I haven't forgotten that I said I would share with you the recipes from last week, so look for one later today!
