I’ve enjoyed this stretch of four weeks of trying lots of new recipes. With only one exception, everything we’ve tried has been quite tasty! I’m not one to hang onto years worth of back magazine issues, but I rank my Taste of Home collection the same as I do a much-loved cookbook. I keep coming back to them, again and again, and trying recipes that I skipped the first, second or even third time through. This week there are still a few new-t0-us Taste of Home recipes, but we’re trying a few from some other sources, too. I’ve also included a few of our own recipes once again.
Next week I’ll be going back to my normal menu planning methods, but refreshed, inspired and energized from this time of trying so many new dishes. I’m hoping to do a few more posts for the Menu Planning Series beginning next week, too, now that my own menu planning juices are flowing again.
This week’s Pumpkin Cheesecake and Double Chocolate Rice Krispy Treasts are recipes we discovered on Pinterest. Come follow me on Pinterest (by clicking that pretty, red button there on the sidebar), and I’ll follow you back. We can discover all sorts of new things together. Sunday’s Mediterranean Meat Pie is an old recipe of my own. I doubled my original recipe, which yielded three pies. We’ll take two for the church potluck and the third is in my freezer for a quick meal in the future. We missed having the Creamy Sourdough Snack last Sunday, so it’s recycled onto the menu for this week. I just popped the loaf of sourdough back into the freezer until Saturday night.
Lunch: Pizzadillas (Quesadillas, but with pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese)
Dinner: Chicken Pot Pie, fruit, Biscuits
