OK so a theme with my blog lately, I'm always a day late! Fine, I admit it, I am routinely late to things in general, which I can't stand. With 3 kids it always seems like something unexpected comes up and no matter how hard I try, I wind up late! I know, excuses excuses right!!! If anyone has some awesome time management tips please share...Lord knows I need them! In the meantime, I will share some yummy recipes with you...this is what's cookin at our house!
MONDAY: We ordered out last night, a local pizza place has $6 brick oven pizzas on Mondays and we love them! You can always make your own pizza! Super easy and the kids love it! Here is a recipe from Emeril for homemade pizzas, a little of this and a little of that and BAM! (sorry I had to) you've got your pizza! TUESDAY: Tonight is meatloaf night. Super yummy, super easy! Here's a great recipe. WEDNESDAY: I'm thinking this Chicken Enchilada Pasta sounds like a winner and is budget friendly. This is a new one to try out so I will report back! THURSDAY: Tonight we are going to my cousins house to eat chili before the trick or treating fun! Here is a yummy chili recipe, throw it together in the crock pot and no rush cooking before you have to head out to go house to house! FRIDAY: Leftover night! Use that chili from the night before to make chili nachos, 3 Way (my personal choice) or some good 'ol chili dogs! SATURDAY: We are having family over for my daughter's 2nd birthday and are doing drip beef sandwiches! I love the Pioneer Woman and we are making her recipe...here it is, yum! SUNDAY: In all honestly we will probably be enjoying some left overs from our dripped beef, but just in case I will leave you with another recipe idea! I found this one on pinterest and it looks so good! It is also a recipe where you can seem really fancy, but it is super simple! Prosciutto and Gruyere-Stuffed Chicken Breast-I told you it sounded fancy! Enjoy!
Let me know what ya think of the recipes above, or if you are making something different, please share! I can always use some new recipe inspiration!!!
