Monday: Grilled Chicken Tex Mex Packets — packet meals are popular here, since they’re so easy to personalize for each person’s tastes.
Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Chicken
Wednesday: make your own pizza — I make the crust, then each person puts their toppings of choice onto their own personal pizza
Thursday: Baked Potato Soup — I haven’t made this recipe yet.
Friday: Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken — looks good — update — good, but VERY salty.
You’ll notice all my recipes this week come from Pinterest. In case you’re not familiar with how Pinterest works — when you click on the recipe link, it takes you to a picture (“pin”) of the recipe. To see the recipe, just click on the photo and the recipe will open up. I’m starting to use Pinterest as a type of online cookbook to keep track of recipes we like. Do you use Pinterest much for recipes?
Desserts this week (surprisingly, I’m in a fruity rather than chocolate-y mood …):
Easiest Pineapple Cake — I’ve made it and it’s delicious
In other food-related news — this beverage is a frequent sight at our house lately (actually, a more common sight is the empty bottle). I discovered Bolthouse Farms Smoothies thanks to a coupon, and now the kids are hooked. Truth be told, I love them too — but in typical Mom fashion, I save them for the kids.
Our favorite is the Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It’s delicious: the 56-oz bottle contains 13 servings of fruit. It tastes so delicious — you really have to taste it to see. They make it so easy for teens to get the fruit they need each day: they feature 100% juice with no added sugar, and the strawberry banana variety contains 100% of the daily Vitamin C requirement, as well as 9% of daily potassium. The juices and smoothies are a bit pricey, but worth it as a healthy splurge. Discover where to buy them near you!
Thanks to Bolthouse Farms for coupons to try their products. With or without coupons, we truly love them!
