Today’s kid tested, mom approved recipes are all over the map — you can probably tell I can’t decide what the heck I’m craving today. It all sounds good to me. Hopefully, one or more dish will appeal to you and yours too. : )
The perfect recipe for the sale Sendik’s Natural Boneless Chuck Roasts: Beef Soft Tacos with Salsa. One of our all time favorite dinners. Wrap up the beef in soft tortillas, or serve it like a stew over hot cooked rice. This makes awesome leftovers, too. Look for sale Clint’s Salsa, Sargento Shredded Cheese, and Swanson’s Broth.
Thai Style Shrimp and Rice Soup is one of my favorite recipes when I need a spicy food fix. I absolutely love it. Back off the curry paste slightly if you’re serving this to kids; serve it with Sriracha sauce on the side. I can’t wait to make this again. Look for sale CenSea Jumbo Shrimp and Swanson’s Broth.
For a dressed up, fancy pants grilled cheese, serve up a delicious hot and gooey Croque Monsieur. Perfect for a chilly day when your swimsuit is tucked far away in the far reaches of your dresser. Boar’s Head Barvarian Smoked Ham and Emmi Roth Kase Grand Cru Wisconsin Gruyere are on sale.
Lastly, because you might enjoy a weekend baking project (and because I’m still working through my canned pumpkin stash), you will want to make a couple of loaves of this fantastic Spiced Pumpkin Bread. This is an all-time favorite around here; we love it with sliced apples for breakfast or a snack. Add chocolate chunks if you’re feeling nice and naughty. Freeze one for a rainy day. Look for sale Shurfine Canned Pumpkin, Shurfine Granulated Sugar, and for a splurge: Sharffen Berger Baking Chocolate Chunks (GOOOOOOOOOOD STUFF!!).
Have a great week. : )Fresh, Frugal, Fabulous, News | November 8th, 2012
