mealtime monday

wow, what a tremendous response from last week! (haha, just kidding peeps. this is obviously more for my benefit than anyone else's, because it forces me to plan our menu!)

our menu this week includes:
monday- leftovers
tuesday- homemade tomato basil pizza
wednesday- slow cooked pork carnitas
thursday- chicken & rice
friday- out with family
saturday- to Barker's
sunday- to Robison's

kind of a lazy week cooking wise, but it's just one of those weeks. we have a lot of family things this weekend including conference and my cousins being sealed to their wonderful daughter elizabeth! i don't mind though because it means lots of family time and less cooking for me!

here is a new easy recipe we love

thai chicken
2 large chicken breasts
3/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lime juice

put chicken in crock pot. mix together salsa, peanut butter, soy sauce, and lime juice. pour over chicken. cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4. serve shredded or whole over rice. i like it over basmati rice best, but brown rice is a healthier alternative and it's still tasty.

i'll admit, i was a bit skeptical of the salsa/peanut butter mix, but it is SO tasty!
we love trying new things! what is your favorite easy dinner?

  1. My go-to dinner is soft chicken tacos - I do the chicken in the crockpot with a jar of salsa and let it cook all day. Then I shred it and serve it in tortillas with all the fixings. Another yummy one along the same lines is chicken with a can of cream of chicken and a packet of taco seasoning - cook it all day and then shred it and serve it over rice. Delicious and easy :)
