Menu Plan Monday, January 16th to 22nd
Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie
I think I am just going to rename my menu planning posts Menu Plan Wednesday instead of Menu Plan Monday because I just can't seem to get it together on Monday's to get my menu plan up. Although in my defense I have had my menu plan in my head all week, I just have gotten a chance to blog about it.
Last week's new recipe for us was the Chinese Honey Chicken that I found through Pinterest a while back. I must say it was AMAZING! We all really liked it, although I did sweeten up the sauce by adding more honey than it called for and a little bit of brown sugar. It will definetly be a recipe we keep around, but it won't be one that we use when we have to get supper done in a hurry.
I also got in a little baking this week (Yes, I know I am on a diet!!!). I had about 3 bananas that were going bad (see I have been eating bananas!) so I used them to make the Clementine Bakery's Banana Cake from The Wednesday Chef. I had a can of cream cheese icing in my pantry that I used for the icing. I tried a little piece, it was a teeny tiny one, I had to make sure that it was okay before serving it to my family and it was the best banana cake I have ever ate! My family loved it as well.
Here's what we have planned for this week:
