Well, January has seemed to kind of drag by, as it usually does, since after Christmas winter seems to have lost its charm! I am not too sad to change my calendar to February, as it means I am that much closer to spring, to seeing my sisters and the rest of my family (coming up in March and April!), and of course, Valentine's Day! :) Those red and pink shades and hearts in all varieties have been popping up everywhere since New Year's and my calendar is no exception. February 14 is decked out with little hearts there too! I have been feeling under the weather the last week and a half, so I don't feel like I have much inspiration to cook right now, but hopefully my appetite will pick up soon!
Week 1 (Feb. 1-5)
Baked Barbecue Chicken and Rice
My mom used to make this a lot when I was a kid. It's so easy- the chicken, rice, barbecue sauce and water all go together in a dish and bake! A great one-dish meal.
German Lentil Sausage Soup
I had a great soup at the cafeteria when we were at the hospital visiting someone a couple of weeks ago, so I think I've found a recipe to duplicate it! It contained lentils, sausage, & cabbage and it was soooo good!
Chicken Caesar Salad
Whole Wheat Pepperoni Pizza with a Green Salad
Valentine Dinner at POB Camp
Travis was asked to speak at a neighboring church's Valentine Dinner, so we'll be eating Prime Rib there!
Week 2 (Feb. 8-12)
Balsamic Chicken with Brown Rice and Asparagus
Cabbage Beef Soup
Another new soup recipe from Allrecipes.com. This one should use up the rest of my head of cabbage from the week before! :)
Spaghetti with Salad and Rolls
Simply spaghetti. :)
Valentine Dinner at POB Church
This is our own church's Valentine Dinner, and we'll have prime rib here as well. I will likely be making a dessert for it.
Hot Dogs with Chips and Fruit
We like to use turkey dogs!
Week 3 (Feb. 15-19)
Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce, Pasta and Asparagus
These chops are so tender and creamy!
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Fish Tacos with Roasted Potatoes
We make these delicious tacos with tilapia fillets, seasoned Mexi-style!
Mac 'n' Cheese with Pigs in Blankets
Our niece, Jenifer will be staying the night with us, so it will be fun to have her help me make this fun, kid-friendly dinner!
Meatballs with Rice, Salad, and Rolls
Trav's parents will be visiting, so I'll serve my "famous" meatballs! :)
Week 4 (Feb. 22-26)
Chicken Tarragon with Potatoes and a Veggie
A new recipe from my Campbell's cookbook.
Leftover from last month, in the freezer!
Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes(?)
A very light and flavorful way to prepare pork chops.
Whole Wheat Pizza
Chicken Enchiladas with Rice
My tweaked recipe for "white" enchiladas. We haven't had them for awhile, and I'm slimming them down by using light cream cheese and fat free sour cream!
