I've been a major blogger slacker this week. It's been a weird week at work, so I haven't even had a lunch hour to write posts. I have a few unfinished entries written that I need to post...and I will, I promise. I'm officially 33 weeks pregnant and never wrote a post for 32 weeks, which is a shame since that was my last week feeling that happy, comfortable pregnant feeling.
I'm feeling really uninspired this week, but am still trying some new recipes. We'll see what happens. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the recipes gets postponed to next week and I take a night off, but I don't want to plan on that. So without further ado...
Sunday: Quesadillas. We went out to dinner last night, unexpectedly, so we still have the chicken from the chicken bowls leftover and will make those into quesadillas tonight. If I thought the chicken would still be good tomorrow, I'd save it as a quick dinner tomorrow night. So, as always, the night we cook things is open to change.
Monday: Easy Jambalaya. This is our recipe for cooking club this week and I'm really excited to make it. It seems like our type of meal--easy, quick, and yummy!
Tuesday: Sloppy Joes with tater tots. 'Nuf said, I think :)
Wednesday: Key West Grilled Chicken. This was a Pinterest find and it sounds like a great marinade for our first grilling of the season. I'll serve it with some rice and maybe some pineapple.
Thursday: Stuffed Cabbage Casserole. This is the recipe that could end up being made tonight if I don't make quesadillas since it has a bit longer cooking time. Unfortunately, though, I'd planned on making extra rice with the grilled chicken to use in this dish, so I'll need to cook some rice first.
Friday: Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops. We've had these before and really enjoyed them. When I saw that pork chops are on sale this week, I knew I had to make them again. I'll make them with mashed potatoes. Great comfort food!
Saturday: Fondue. Last June we had a gathering with our closest college friends to celebrate our collective 30th birthdays and, to celebrate, we went to Melting Pot. I want to recreate that food at home (it's *got* to be cheaper....) and get together those same friends before we're a little more restricted (we'll be shipping Baby Girl off to my parents' house so we can have some adult time and I have a feeling adult time will be at a premium for awhile once Baby Boy is here). I'm really excited, but need to start looking for recipes--we'll do cheese, meat, and dessert courses!
