Menu 2/14 - 2/20

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Although, over my years of food blogging, I've gotten better at choosing new recipes to try,  it's still always a hit or miss proposition about whether we'll actually enjoy it or not.  Sometimes I'm sure we'll love something that turns out disastrous and other times I am really surprised by a recipe I was only lukewarm about in the first place.  In the end, I probably publish around 2/3 of the new recipes that I try, discarding the rest to the netherlands of the delete button.  This past week, however,  I felt like a complete flub when it came to choosing recipes.  I tried  5 new recipes and every one of them was a complete dud that you will never see here on the blog!  It was getting really old by the end of the week.  So here's hoping that this week I'll have a bit more luck!    

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! 

Monday--BBQ Chicken Cheddar Sandwiches--easy to make and something the whole family will gobble down, so my sweetie and me can go out for a Valentine's date

Berry Swirled Fudge Brownies--Rich, fudgy and swirled with fruit preserves...what's not to love about this Valentine-y treat? 

Tuesday--BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup (new)
Best Homemade Hot Chocolate--

Wednesday--Pasta with Cremini, Asparagus, and Walnuts--I'm still surprised every time I make this how much my kids like this despite the presence of mushrooms and asparagus.  It's on our list of family favorite meals

Thursday--Oatmeal Pancakes with Lemon-Apple Topping--My friend just tried these and raved about them, so it got me excited to try them again too!

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan

Friday--Make-Your-Own Pizzas--a fun way for everyone to be happy with their pizza!

Saturday--Potato Soup--Another one of our family's very favorite meals! 

Bread Bowls--My kids think it is super cool to eat their soup in an edible bowl! 

Sunday--Strawberry Filled Oatmeal Coconut Muffins--We love these wholesome muffins straight out of the oven! 

Fabulous Fast Chicken--an old family favorite that we haven't made in ages!

Greatest Brownies in the World with Coconut Pecan Frosting--Rich and fudgy and oh so decadent!!!!

Your menu for the week looks so good. I don't know which one to try first. I would like to invite you to bring a dish to my Full Plate Thursday. Thank you for sharing and have a great Valentines Day!

bummer about last week's recipes! We love crockpot chicken parm -- I love that the chicken is moist :)

Those pancakes with apples look great -- what a filling and yummy dinner.
