Let's Catch Up--Recipe Reviews and Meal Plans

Hi Readers,

I have to apologize!  I (once again) have been putting off my blogging, not for any particular reason, other than the fact that I am LAZY.  Okay, maybe not lazy, but busy, twins, house work, dogs, new medication, a husband and whatnot!  Anyway, I suppose I will start with my recipe reviews, I don't have any pictures, so bear with me!  I'll keep it short!
So first I made my own Alfredo sauce, found the recipe here:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066581384/
This was super good, and I was naughty and used some half and half, but I was just trying to use it up.  We had this on linguine and shrimp.  Next time around I would DEFINITELY put something GREEN in it.  This was good, but super rich, and that's not what I was going for.  So heed my warning, this is so good, but super rich, so lighten it up with something green.

The next night I made Chicken Pot Pie.  The recipe for the pie crust, and the Pot Pie comes from my Betty Crocker cookbook, and if you would like the recipe, comment on here, or on my Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/cooking4ireland

Another night I made Slow Cooker Tortilla soup found here:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066581467/  This recipe calls for canned enchilada sauce, but I really hate canned enchilada sauce, it's just gross, here's a link to a recipe I found to make it, and it is super cheap compared to buying it prepared.  I found a recipe a few months back here:  http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/2012/08/red-enchilada-sauce-080-batch.html
This was delicious, I added sour cream and cheese to mine!  MMMmmm!

I also made dessert one night!  Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats.  I found a recipe here:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066408196/  I also used pumpkin spice marshmallows for half of the white marshmallows!  So good!  I did not add the white chocolate though, but that's okay with me!

That was last week in meals.  Here's what's coming next week:

Monday:  I have some chicken I need to use up so I will be making this Chicken, Ranch and Rice Soup: http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216065100472/

Tuesday:  I still have that pork that needs to be used so I think I will be adapting this pork chop recipe to slow cook it, here's the recipe:   http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066622890/

Wednesday:  I didn't get to make the Taco Casserole last week, here's the recipe again:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066360506/

Thursday:  These Lasagna Pasta Pies from Pillsburry look great!  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216065341103/

Friday:  I think I'll make these cottage cheese enchiladas, since I'll probably buy cottage cheese for the lasagna pasta pies instead of ricotta:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216064660564/

Happy meal planning,

Meg
