First of all, I have to tell you, I finally made chicken and bows! Since I'm completely unable to leave any recipe well enough alone, I made some modifications and was quite pleased with the results. Only thing I didn't like was the bows - I bought some of that Barilla Plus pasta, which never quite gets to a soft enough texture for our taste. So next time I'll make it with good old fashioned unhealthy white pasta, and I'm sure it will be much better. I need to post the revised recipe before I forget what I did!
And now, on to this week. This will be a short menu week for us, as we have Thanksgiving dinners on BOTH Thursday and Friday. Have to love that!
Monday: Pasta e Fagioli (I already have the sausage cooked, and I'll use orzo pasta, so this should come together very quickly).
Tuesday: Taco salad
Wednesday: cranberry chicken (just like my cranberry pork, but with chicken tenderloins instead)
Thursday: Dinner with hubby's family. I'm taking spinach dip and an orange ambrosia-type jello salad.
Friday: Dinner with my family. I'm taking a veggie tray, jello, and my daughter's birthday cake. possibly more if my mom needs help, but that's all I know for now!
I may flip-flop Monday and Tuesday. We'll see how it goes.
To those of you in the US (and those abroad who celebrate US holidays), have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. To those of you who don't celebrate Thanksgiving this week, have a great week! Ah, what the heck, you be safe too. :-) And remember to visit Menu Plan Monday at orgjunkie.com for lots of great menu ideas!
