November 11, 2011 Menu!!

Well my friends, week 2 of my seasonal job is almost behind me!  I am having a good time, meeting some new people and seeing some I haven't seen in a while but I will be glad when its done and I can get back to my normal routine.

This weeks menu is another simple one, its a challenge to get home at 6:30 and then get dinner ready.  I am thankful I have a husband who pitches in and helps!
I just realized I didn't say how much butter to use for the Alfredo sauce, its 1 stick!

Hope you all have a great week!

November 4th Menu!

It's November already, really?
Well, I have survived my first week at Macy's, just 4 weeks to go!  I must say I am having a good time but I miss doing exactely as I please... 

Going to try a couple of new things this week that look easy, the rest are repeats we really like.  The Foil Pack Chicken & Broccoli caught my eye on Pinterest because it's a new way to cook chicken and it looks quick and easy.  I am making it just like the recipe but I am not using the stuffing to save on calories.  Next I am trying the Mexican Rice Casserole, also from Pinterest.  I am using brown rice instead of white, and check your pantry for the seasonings it requires and if you don't want to purchase all of them I am thinking you can substitute a package of Taco seasoning.  The Baked Pork Chops and Tilapia are both easy with little prep time.  If you are not crazy about the sauce for the pork chops, use some mushroom soup and serve them with rice or noodles.  The Honey BBQ Meatloaf is something I tried weeks ago and we loved it.  I will double my recipe so I will have some leftovers for lunch, same with the Chicken Verde Soup.  I gotta say I have loved coming home from work and dinner is almost reading except for cooking a veggie or side dish.

Praying you all have a blessed week of dinner time with your families!
