monday i modified this one pot cheesy tortellini by substituting ground beef for the sausage. it was quick, easy, delicious and went over well with us and the kids. win!
tuesday i remade this broccoli cheese soup with a lot of modifications, lightening it up and adding more broccoli. recipe to come!
we're trying to get back into the swing of having salad at least once a week. wednesday we had garden salad with roasted chicken, cucumber, carrots, and grape tomatoes.
thursday. this dr. pepper chicken has been on my to make list for a long time. we finally had it, sauteed on the stove rather than grilled, served with roasted sweet & russet potatoes.
i spent friday afternoon making green enchilada sauce and covering chicken enchiladas with it for this month's secret recipe club: green chicken enchiladas. i last made enchiladas a couple years ago - chicken with red sauce - and stopped dead when i saw the green version on my assigned blog. they were amazing!
last saturday we invited a bunch of friends with little ones over for an easter egg hunt & brunch. we had cheesy potato frittata, sugar crusted baked french toast, turkey cheddar roll ups, fruit, and simple carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. the weather was cold and our yard muddy, so we hid eggs in our living room and the kids had a great time. once we cleaned up, we piled the kids in the car & headed to my parents' house for easter. my mom made homemade lasagna that we gobbled up with garlic knots.
we spent easter sunday with my parents. my mom made homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, we munched prosciutto wrapped asparagus and deviled eggs before dinner and had a classic easter dinner: baked ham with carrots, baked potatoes, and coleslaw. my mom usually makes a "fancy" dessert at holidays, and for this one, made the taste of home's lemon ricotta cake. if you like lemon, this cake's for you.
