So, I stumbled upon For the Love of Cooking. There are great recipes here using ingredients I actually have in my fridge & cabinets. I like that. Also, Pam has two kids~ another bonus. I have made a few different recipes from her blog with great success amongst my clan.
Last night I fixed Turkey Meatloaf Muffins with Spinach & Mashed Taters. A couple changes I would make to this in the future is to incorporate the spinach into the meatloaf muffins & maybe add chopped carrots, too. Aside from that, Cristian ate four of these puppies. They were really quite tasty, easy & fun. I wish I had pretty pictures like Pam has to share, but Ron took our camera to Kuwait :(
The night before last was Daisy Scout night. Our Daisies meet about 45 minutes away. I could find a closer troop, but Bella loves her fellow home schooled Daisies, and Cristian has a couple of boys to be rambunctious with while we have meetings. The only problem is hungry kids when we get home. I need something quick & tasty to feed them almost immediately. Enter another one of Pam's great recipes Shredded Beef & Avocado Tostadas. I put the meat in the crock pot in the morning & was able to make a great meal when we got home. The one change I made was to make these into soft tacos as opposed to tostadas, so there was a little less mess. I used Trader Joe's guacamole in place of the avocados & had to omit it for Bella's tacos. Otherwise it was a hit. I never used Cotija cheese before, but now I see it being a return player in the future.
Tonight will be a toss up between stuffed shells or garlic ginger chicken. Go check her out, I know you'll be glad you did.
