HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE! This year Bobby and I are ringing in the New Year at home. We usually have big plans but this year Bobby is working so a nice dinner together, a few hands of cards and an old movie sounds about right!
Cod and spinach are a match made in heaven. And add a little prosciutto to the mix and OH YUM! What a great recipe from Kit’s Coastal!
MONDAY- SLOW COOKER DINNER- HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Happy New Year! In my neck of the woods, we celebrate with pork and sauerkraut and mashed potatoes! I’ll make extra mashed potatoes for dinner tomorrow. And this Pennsylvania Dutch favorite is best in the slow cooker.
- PORK ROAST AND SAUERKRAUT
- MASHED POTATOES ( double recipe for the rest of the week)
- ROASTED ORGANIC CARROTS
Chicken tenders take on the taste of what is put on them. And what better than cheddar and ranch! I’m making a double batch and using the leftovers to add to my lunch salads. YUM!
WEDNESDAY- SOUP DAY
I love halupki aka cabbage rolls! They are a part of my heritage. But they are also very work intensive! Making a soup with all the delicious halupki ingredients is brilliant! Thanks for the scrumptious recipe, Cooking Classy!
- CABBAGE ROLL SOUP
- CRUSTY BREAD
I am a purist when it comes to my favorite dish from the sea… Alaskan King Crab legs. They are quite a treat. Costco had them on sale so I bought a box and froze them. The best way ever to cook these gorgeous legs is using a sous vide. To find out more about the sous vide method click HERE.
Nani’s sauteed chicken is on my menu often. First, it’s so delicious and easy to make and second, it brings back such sweet memories of my grandmother. If you want a little comfort food in your life, you might want to try this tasty dish!
- NANI’S SAUTEED CHICKEN
- MASHED POTATOES ( yes, again! I love them… but only a small amount)
- PARMESAN CARROT SHOESTRINGS
SATURDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tex Mex food! And when everything comes in a bowl… oh my scrumptious!!!!! Thanks, Kitchn for this amazing looking recipe!
TREAT OF THE WEEK
Have you ever played Mexican Train dominoes? What a fun game. We play with a double set of dominoes. It’s not too mind taxing yet it does take lots of strategy. Young and old can be a part of Mexican Train dominoes!!!! And flan is a scrumptious custardy dessert to serve when playing!!!
Another new favorite game of mine is Hanabi. I’m addicted to playing!!!!!! Hanabi, unlike Mexican Train Dominoes, is a thinking game for sure!
Have a scrumptious week!
