Menu Plan Monday ~Feb 7th
First, let's review a few from last week:
Slow Cooker Pineapple Pepper Chicken Stew - this was a beautiful dish but the flavor needed a little something more. We might make it again but I don't think I'll make it for my February food exchange.
Pot roast - this was good but it really needed to cook longer than 8 hours, the meat was not tender enough. We have had this issue alot so we have also decided our crockpot is too big. We just purchased the most adorable 4 quart that I will be trying out this week.
Shrimp and Cheese Grits with Okra - hubby thought this was okay, I thought it was delicious BUT it is very labor intensive so I would not likely make this again.
Now, this weeks meal plan includes:
Monday: Thai Shrimp Bisque
Tuesday: Turkey Taco Night
Wednesday: Black bean soup and cornbread (received at monthly frozen food exchange in January)
Thursday: dinner out
Friday: Herbed Artichoke Chicken (crockpot)
