I had leftovers on the meal plan tonight only there are no leftovers! My husband will be happy as he is not a fan of leftovers, and to be honest I'm picky about what I'll eat for leftovers. So it's looking like either Pizza night or Alfredo Tortellini & Sausage.
tried a new recipe this week, Honey Sauced Chicken. I wasn't sure if the
picky one (Lane) would eat it, but I dished up a Chicken breast, some
brown rice and a small serving of salad w/ a tiny bit of dressing. Lane
was digging into his salad and the next thing I knew, he's gobbling up
the chicken! Yippee, a new recipe that he will eat...success!
I didn't make the recipe exactly as stated since I was
missing one ingredient...ketchup. I'm still not sure how I feel about
ketchup in the recipe but I should at least try the recipe once as it
was written. Also, I started out w/ whole frozen chicken breasts, so I
baked this at 350 for 40 minutes covered in foil, then I removed the
foil, turned the chicken over and baked an additional 30 ish minutes.
Next time I will definitely use more chicken as there was a lot of
