Just Call Me Martha

I did some more cooking this weekend, and it was quite yummy...believe me, no one was more surprised than Rodney! Of course, last night I caved and ordered pizza and wings!

I've been getting these Everyday Food catalogs for like two years and the only thing I had ever made from them was a really delicious Chicken Pot Pie. However, I'm discovering they're full of lots of other yummy things, too.

Unfortunately, Martha doesn't have all the recipes up on her site that I used, but next time I talk to her I will mention it.

So this weekend I was able to muster up the energy to create these two dinners:

Night 1
Spicy Orange Chicken Stir Fry (so yummy and so not on the website, but it's in the March 2008 edition if you have it)
Sweet and Sour Cabbage (again, can't find the recipe and I'm scared of Martha should I just post her recipes up here!)

Night 2
Mini Honey Mustard Meat Loaves w/Roasted Potatoes (Rodney liked these better than the meat loaf I normally make)
I just added cucumbers to the salad and dried rosemary to the potatoes, I also cooked some frozen peas

Looking forward to this week's menus,

Favorite Things Friday - Frozen Juice Cans

We've been drinking a lot of juice in our house...and by we, I mean me and the babe in the belly. I'm addicted. Seeing as I have a barely there pantry, storing jugs of juice takes up a lot of room that I don't have. So, I got to thinking. I wonder if they still make the frozen juice concentrate that my mom used to make. While at my FABULOUS SuperTarget, I headed over the frozen section and found an amazing selection of 100% Juice Concentrates...including my favorite, Pineapple-Orange. Not only do they take up a lot less space, they are significantly cheaper. So, I stock up to make sure we are always prepared for a juice craving!

Using these also allows me to use the cute glass "pitcher" things I picked up at the grocery. It's so much cuter than the jugs.

...and yes, that's fresh parsley there...I told you, I've been back in the kitchen!
