family meal: week 48

August 31, 2013

family mealBaked Spaghetti. I made a couple pans of this and it was perfect for making for a large group. The group seemed to like it, but my girls on the other hand, they didn’t like it. They weren’t big fans of the ricotta cheese. I used whole wheat spaghetti in it, but maybe the thinner noodles might have been better. Either way, I liked it, but it’s not on my top 10 list to make again.

We had a package of prosciutto sitting in our fridge for a couple months now and once I made a batch of pizza dough, I knew the prosciutto would make a great pizza topper. This is our first time trying prosciutto and it’s like a milder form of bacon. That combination of salty with the sweet from the caramelized onions made a really good pizza. This is going on my list of favorite pizzas.

Erin sent me this recipe (thanks Erin!) and it was definitely a good first recipe to try! I doubled it for our dinner club, but my batch needed more salt. I tend to err on the side of caution when it comes to salt and this one definitely needed more than I put. Other than that, it was so tasty! Plus, it was spicy, which usually guarantees we will love it. Love this recipe!

Week of 9/2 – 9/6
Monday: Sopas
Tuesday: Vietnamese Pho
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: White Chicken Chili (crock-pot night!)

I’m really excited about my new crock-pot and can’t wait to try the recipes that some of you sent me already. If any of you have any other good ones to try, do share! I’d love to add more to my list!
