I was thinking that I should try to cook 100 new dishes this year. Originally I was thinking I’d try out one new recipe a week, but realized I had already tried out way more than that, so I uppsed the number. Here’s what I’ve made so far (both new and familiar dishes).
You know what, I just can’t remember. I think there was something involving chicken, and definitely some mushroom risotto (which is one of my favorite dishes right now). Evan was sick this week, so everything was a little off.
And the New:
And the New:
Sour Cream Noodle Bake –
Which Evan actually liked! HA! Not only does this have (obviously) sour cream, which I typically have to disguise pretty heavily in meals, it also has cottage cheese…two foods that are generally on Evan’s “no thank you” list.
Classic Pork Meatballs –
Since I’m unable to eat beef, I wanted to find a recipe I liked that I can use anytime I need to make meatballs. I like this one a lot, but depending on the application, I probably wouldn’t add garlic in all the time. It made enough for three separate meals. I cooked one-third as Swedish meatballs over noodles (this is where I wasn’t a big fan of the garlic in the meatballs) and one-third using a duck broth gravy over rice. I have the last third sitting in the freezer in a ziploc.
I’ll post what I ate this week once the week is actually over…my grocery week starts every Wednesday, so this is only the second day of the week!
