I'm finally trying some new recipes! While some weeks I take a look at the calendar and think, “I want things as easy as possible,” it's nice to occasionally throw a new recipe into the mix. Thankfully, my kids will try anything once. If I see a recipe online or in a magazine, I'll show it to them and we'll talk about what's in it that they already like. That sets the stage for a good attitude trying it at dinner, and it usually works. I'm eager to try the Brown Sugar Pork Chops with Onions from BHG and this Cauliflower Soup from Zoom Yummy.
As I've been doing in the New Year, I'm sharing my two-week meal plan every other Monday. On the other Mondays, I share my meal plan challenges. Last week, I told you how we're running out of food. Thanks for your great comments and suggestions! Let me know if you're struggling to meal plan so we can tackle those issues, too.
