Last Week in Dinners

Hello Readers,

I'm back on track, (for the most part) with my weeknight meal planning, and I though I should share with you what I made this week.  So I decided Tuesday get's the coveted spot of Crock Pot night since I don't get home until after 5.  So my plan for this past week was:
Broccoli Mac and Cheese
Crock Pot Roast
Turkey Sliders
Jalapeno Kettle Chip Crusted Chicken


I got a 3/4!  I just didn't have the energy on Wednesday to make the sliders.  BUT I did make dinner every other night :)

I'll start with the Broccoli Mac and Cheese:  Recipe Found here:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216064831663/

So first off, you can just assume that I kind of did what I wanted to this recipe and used it as a guide.  Some things I changed were that I added more broccoli and less pasta than it called for, 1% instead of skim milk, regular butter, but I used less than they called for, and I used mozzarella instead of whatever cheese they called for.  Also, I didn't put too much on the top with the breading.  It was glorious.  Would you like to see a picture?
Yeah.  Delicious!  And I had leftovers all week!!  Oh I also added a lot of pepper too it, I couldn't help myself.

I've already posted about the pot roast, same recipe as in the previous blog.  It was good as usual ;)

I skipped out on the sliders, oh well.

Then the Jalapeno Kettle Chip Crusted Chicken:  Recipe Found:  http://www.mylifeasamrs.com/2011/11/jalapeno-kettle-chip-crusted-chicken-with-jalapeno-ranch.html

(Yes, I'm a Pinterest Junkie)....

Anyways, I changed the recipe up.  I basically made chicken nuggets out of these, and baked them longer than she said to, dang elevation.  Anyways, these were good and super juicy, but they were SO SPICY, and I couldn't eat very many.  My husband ate the rest!  But I would totally do this again!  Sorry, I didn't take any pictures!!!

I have two days planned for next week thus far, thanks to Pinterest, stay tuned for more fun recipes,
I'm going to go cook my blackbeans now :),
-Meg
