March 11th - 17th

Welcome to a new week.  Can you believe this weather.  This week it is going to be in the 70s.  I'm a little worried what it is going to be like this summer. 
  • Sunday: Steak Bites (beef tips) with Almost hands-free risotto with parmesan and herbs america's test kitchen with roasted asparagus 
    • This was yummy and we will be using this method for risotto from now on.  Though we did not use the water or the wine in this recipe.  
  • Monday:  Tried another waffle recipe, I still am not happy....
  • Tuesday:  Chicken Philly Sandwich 
  • Wednesday: Baked Shells with Pesto, Mozzarella, and Meat Sauce with spinach salad 
    • You can use any type of noodle for this recipe.  I used jar sauce, but made my own pesto.   It looks a little funky.  I mean, come on, red & green mixed together....but it was yummy!
  • Thursday: Went out to dinner with friends.  Wow, did the kids have fun together! So, did the adults....
  • Friday: Leftovers
  • Saturday: Slow Cooked Sweet Barbacoa Pork with Black Beans
    • This was yummy!  A bit messy though.  I did make some changes to the recipe:  I didn't have tomato sauce (opps).  I had diced tomatoes; so I used the juice and some of the tomatoes.  I also didn't have a chipotle chile so I used dried chipotle pepper.  It was a sweet & spicy meal.  We really enjoyed this and will definitely head to the family favorite page. 
    • TIP:  I purchased a 4.5 lb pork loin.  I then cut it in 1/2 and used for dinner.  I took the other 1/2 and sliced into 4 nice thick pork chops and 2 smaller ones for the little man & DH's lunch.  
    • We had this for leftovers on Sunday lunch and heated it up in a pan.  We cooked all of the liquid out and it was even better!  I hope you enjoy as much as we did!
