Did quite a bit of cooking this week — my one night class is in the “online phase” till April.. we tried some new recipes and then some repeats…
Taco Pot Pie – We typically eat tacos every week so I’m really trying to try new “Mexican” style dishes to add variety. I saw this on Plain Chicken and had to try it — well mine looks nothing like hers for I didn’t pull the dough up far enough… but it still tasted good.. My youngest had only cheese will me and the oldest had black beans with taco seasoning. Definitely something I will try again and pay attention to how I pull up the dough.
Baked Veggie Egg Rolls – We also seem to like “Asian” style food which gets expensive going to a buffet since I like variety. I knew how to make veggie lo main and fried rice so wanted to try my own version of egg rolls. I got the wrappers from a local Asian market and just put savoy cabbage and carrots inside…this recipe was my guidance. Hmmm they tasted okay but nothing like what I get at a restaurant… I will definitely make again but going to try different vegetables and figure out way to make crispier.
Greek Pasta with Meatballs – This was valentine’s dinner with a side of green beans. I seen the recipe in the Cooking Light Ultimate Kid-Approved Cookbook and wanted to try it… lamb meatballs rather than turkey. My oldest didn’t like them but my youngest did… not sure if I will make it again but I can at least say I tried. I didn’t put crumbled feta cheese like the recipe for I knew they wouldn’t like it so I used shredded parmesan instead.
I can honestly say I haven’t planned our menu for this coming week but plan on doing so later tonight.. What have you been cooking?
