Menu Plan Monday: January 24

I'm a little late with this week's menu. I forgot to check a recipe for Mexican Chicken Casserole before I went to the grocery store, so I'm missing some ingredients for that. Then there's the little conundrum where I saw a different recipe for it that looked great, only I can't seem to find it anywhere: magazines, internet, email, etc. I'll give it one more shot, then I'll have to decide if I want to go with the old favorite or try something new on my own.

Last week's two new recipes and one old one that I had forgotten about were hits all around. I might have put a bit much pepper in the pork chop casserole, because the leftover potatoes and carrots were SPICY! I like spicy, but these were really HOT! The carrot orzo was a hit with everyone except Jacob, who chose to eat raw carrots with Ranch dressing as one of his sides. The best of all was the roasted cauliflower. The boys raved about it at first, but the new wore off pretty quickly and the decided it was just okay. Billy and I absolutely loved it. I didn't get my fill of it, so I bought another head of cauliflower to fit in somewhere this week.

Baked Potato Soup

The boys decided they don't like this anymore. Caleb's not wild about potatoes, and Jacob decided he doesn't like chunks in his soup - unless it's broccoli cheese soup. Billy and I love it, though, especially after I started using full fat sour cream in it instead of low fat. The way it melts and blends into the soup makes such a world of difference! We were the only two who ate it last night, and there's only enough left for me to have for lunch today.
