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.

March Cookbook Challenge///Week One

This week is a little short because I finished out my Hello Fresh boxes that I ordered. So we officially started our cook book challenge for the month on Wednesday! I also was a bad food blogger and did not get pictures of everything, but maybe I can work on this.

I made this roasted beet salad for lunches for Chris and me and it was delicious. The green goddess dressing is worth saving! Harper liked it just to dip veggies in for her snack later in the week.

My parents came to visit and we whipped up the fried chicken in the cookbook. I found it on the blog as well! I might add more seasoning to the batter next time, but the chicken thighs were delicious. The technique of adding flour to the wet batter wasn’t something I had ever tried and it made the chicken extra crispy! My mom whipped together some mashed potatoes and we had green beans and a slaw from the book that was just ok.

For a cozy Saturday night at home we made the chicken fettuccine alfredo. It was delicious and I may have to make it a regular thing!

I’ve made my menu plan for this week and will share next Monday. What delicious things have you been eating?
