Here is last week’s menu. Sorry for the delay. It’s been a hectic week already.
Sunday Mike and I went to Chipotle with some friends and then out for some frozen yogurt. I love frozen yogurt. It’s a sweet treat that can be pretty healthy depending on what toppings you pile on.
Monday I was on my own for dinner
Tuesday I made jerk chicken and some Spanish rice using this jerk sauce Mike’s sister brought back for us from Jamaica.
The sauce was very flavorful! I had marinaded the chicken breasts in the sauce and then baked the chicken in the oven. It was good, but I think next time I’ll shred the chicken in the sauce to get even more flavor.
Wednesday I made Slow Cooker French Onion Soup. I made mine with provolone cheese though and I think I may have used too much garlic. I always like a lot of garlic and the soup was really good, but next time I think I’ll hold back a little. Also, I’ll probably put two slices of cheese on top. One can never go wrong with more cheese.
Thursday I made Chicken and Swiss Extraodinaire, but again, I didn’t use Swiss Cheese (it’s the one cheese I don’t like). Instead, I used Provolone. This dish was REALLY good, but my chicken was really thick (and probably not thawed all the way) so it took a lot longer to cook than directed. So, Mike and I had some cheese and crackers while we waited. The chicken was definitely worth the wait though! Yum Yum!
Friday I was going to make this yummy Shrimp Asparagus Tortellini in Lemon Dill Scampi dish, but by the time I got home, I was exhausted and felt lazy. So I made spaghetti instead and made the tortellini on Sunday. If you like dill, I highly recommend this dish!
Just a side note, there will be no menu posted for the week of 3/8/15. It’s restaurant week here so Mike and I will be going out a lot! I promise I’ll make it up the following week though.
