Menu 3-21

Here's the recap from what we ate last week:
For dinner Monday night we tried yet another version of Tomato Soup. Unfortunately, we still haven't found one that we love. I am confident that somewhere out there is a soup for us! We had our grilled cheese on oatmeal bread and learned something important. The bread is delicious but possbily too much so as it almost overpowered the cheese.
On Tuesday we tried Lasagna Casserole. It's basically normal lasagna but with a different pasta. It tasted fine but I found myself missing the layers too much. We also had Foccacia Bread. Now this is a keeper! It was easy and wonderful!
For the Soup Supper at church on Wednesday the choices were Taco Soup, Chili and White Chicken Chili. They were all great!

Thursday we had Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas. It had been awhile since we've had these so it was nice to taste them again. I made homemade tortillas and they turned out much better than my first attempt a few weeks ago.
I had leftover tortillas so I made tortilla chips and White Bean Dip. The chips were great and the dip was okay. We probably won't be having the dip again.
For Pizza Night we had Burrito Pizza. We decided it was the best yet of all our attempts.
I forgot to make Cinnamon Bread on Friday so we couldn't have French Toast. Instead, we had Waffles and lucky me, my husband made them!

We're trying a couple new recipes this week, on Tuesday and Thursday. I am really looking forward to both of them as well as our other included favorites.
  • Monday: Soup Night! Cream Cheese Chicken & Vegetable Soup: We had this once last fall and I absolutely loved it. I'm hoping for good results again this time.
  • Tuesday: Roasted Chicken and Vegetables: I've had a whole chicken sitting in the freezer that I'd like to get out of there plus I bought two bags of red potatoes last week.
  • Wednesday: Soup Supper at Church
  • Thursday: Breakfast Burritos: We usually don't do eggs for our Saturday Brunch so really, it's been a while since we've had something like this.
  • Friday: Pizza Night! Pepperoni/Salty Dog: It's nice to get back to the basics every now and then!
  • Saturday Brunch: French Toast: I'm not giving up on this! Hopefully this week it'll actually happen.
  • Sunday: Leftovers
