I'm going out of town tomorrow so am posting mine a little early!
(I'm all excited because I started up my spreadsheet again. Last year I only kept it up until June - hopefully I'll do better this year!!)
Close to 30 recipes made this month (and 21 brand new) - no wonder our food bill was sooo outta control
But an excellent month for "Definite Repeaters"!! If only DH would see it this way...
Won’t Make Again
(first time) Chicken Basmati CL 12/03 -time consuming and bland
(first time) Asparagus with Mustard Soy Dressing CL 1/04 -raw yolk weird texture
Might Make Again
(first time) Hoisin chicken CL 01/04 -Butterball chicken THE BEST. Broccoli pieces too big. Needed more sauce.
(first time) Pine Nut Caesar (recipe from friend) -use 1/3 directed amount of oil!!!!!
(first time) White Chocolate Challah Pudding CL BB -even better cold!!!
(first time) Sweet Potato, Corn & Kale Chowder WF Cookbook -yummy
(first time) Beef Stew CL 01/04 -good but a little watery. Beef not tender even though Angus Simmer longer?
(first time) Artichoke Nibbles CL BB -a little soft - serve with crackers or reduce liquid more
(first time) Tamale Pie CL 1/04 -“PDG”
(first time) "Pork" Meatballs with Allspice (and homemade spag sauce) CL 12/03 -Needed the changes I posted on CL BB. Use less allspice too.
Bree's Lentil Soup CL BB -nourishing but not exciting
Crawfish and Corn over Smoked Gouda Potatoes OLD CL -Needed the full amount of butter (too dry otherwise) Mashers need more texture than the store bought.
(first time) Sweet Black Pepper Fish CL 01/04 -Expensive but soooo easy! Vietnamese. Good for guests.
(first time) Smothered Chicken CL BB -so "comforting" so easy and only 5 WW points!!! I added (jarred) roasted garlic cloves, a dash of ff milk and some onion salt.
