After months of saying I was going to get back into menu planning -- I have finally done it! It's only been 2 weeks now, but it's amazing how much of a difference it makes. Not only do I know ahead of time what I'm making for supper, but it lessens the urge to order in. Plus it spurs me to make bigger & better meals for my family -- and to top if all off, I'm even enjoying my time in the kitchen a lot more! Who knew?!
I thought in order to help keep me going on this once-again-re-discovered good habit that I would start posting a picture (and recipe) of one of my suppers each week. I may not quite catch every week, but I'm gonna try!
So without further ado...here is Meal of the Week: #1
Pigs in a Blanket using this recipe.
And a Mandarin & Almond Salad
The salad is made by simply adding mandarin oranges and shredded almonds to your romaine lettuce. The salad dressing is equal parts vinegar, sugar and cooking oil.
This is a wonderful kid-friendly meal that is simple to make and can also be a big hit with adults too.
Tip: You could also just make the Piggies for an appetizer at a party you are going to.
