Branching Out: Menu Monday
Since my recent discovery and obsession with Smitten Kitchen, I have felt much more inspired in the kitchen. If you are ever feeling the dark cloud of blasé cooking overcoming you, then Smitten Kitchen is the antidote. I made a mental goal since starting Menu Monday of trying one new recipe a week. This week I might have overdone it a little with three new recipes...but I have found a recipe that will definitely be added to the favorites list. We are so obsessed, you will see it again, next week!. So here you go. The weekly line up:
Monday: Vegetarian chili with sour cream and cheddar biscuits . These biscuits are to die for. I made them with whole wheat flour, and you would never know the difference!
Tuesday: Spinach, tomato, and cheddar cheese omelets
Wednesday: Blue cheese and red potato tart Honestly, this was more work than it was worth. Maybe it's because I'm not a big fan of blue cheese...The husband loved it!
Thursday: Out to eat!
Friday: Asparagus Pancetta Hash -vegetarianized and served with an egg on top. Simply amazing. There wasn't a single bite left in the skillet. Simple with only 3 ingredients. And just delicious!!
We had company in from out of town and midterms during the week, so there was less cooking than usual.
In other news, I have begun to coupon. I have thought about trying for a year or two, but I have been daunted by the lack of organic coupons. I have decided this time that sure, I might not be able to lower my weekly grocery bill to $10 and get $150 worth of food, but every dollar adds up. This week, I started by saving $5.
New recipes you've tried this week?
What about coupons? Do you?
