March Cookbook Challenge///Week Two

Week two of using recipes from The Modern Proper cookbook and blog. Had two really good ones this week that may become part of the regular rotation.

First I made the Beef Satay in the cookbook and the Homemade Fried Rice from the blog. I had some frozen dumplings that I served too, a little take out at home night. The rice was a hit, not really anything new, but the satay was a little tough and kind of a disappointment.

Tuesday I made the Carnitas and they were absolutely delicious. Like will save and make again on a regular basis good. I think next time I will double up and make it and freeze half for later. We made these two have in tacos and Thursday night I used the leftovers in a hash that was fantastic as well.

Wednesday I made some Chicken Souvlaki meatballs from the book and replaced the chicken with impossible meat. They were delicious as well and when I find something that all five of us will eat and enjoy, I tend to keep it to make again. I do love the meatball section of this book, such easy meals for a busy week day.

This coming week I won’t have any recipes to share as I’m doing a clean out the pantry and fridge kind of week and making simple, no recipe food to get us to the weekend. I do already have some thoughts on this cookbook that I think I will share! Let me know if you made anything yummy this past week.
