Clockwise from top right:
1. Pork and Pineapple Fried Rice from The Pioneer Woman. This flavorful stir-fry was the only "new" (to me) recipe I tried this week, but it wasn't much of a risk. We always love new stir-fry dishes. I love the addition of the pineapple too. I added red bell peppers and left out the peas, and I also cut up the pork chops instead of serving the pork and rice separately. (I had to cut up pork chop for Jona anyway, so I figured I may as well just chop it all up.)
2. Twist-a-ronis from Rachael Ray. I think I made these for a Superbowl party several years ago. They were a hit then, and we still like them now. I have quite an assortment of recipes involving some sort of refrigerated dough, cheese, and pepperoni. It doesn't seem to matter how you put them together, they seem to always be added to the "make again" list. Which is alright by me, since they're always quick and easy!
3. Turkey Noodle Casserole from Rachael Ray (yes, again). Can you tell how much we love this one by the number of times it's made an appearance here? Yep, it's a household favorite. I even get excited about the leftovers of this one, that's how good it is. (Oh, by the way I don't use real Gruyere cheese--we're on a generic brand swiss budget around here folks.)
4. Chicken Mug Pie wow, this one is also Rachael Ray. What can I say, I like her recipes. This is a fake-out chicken pot pie, with creamy chicken stew served in a mug and a biscuit on top. I made this one way back in 2004 (I try to remember to date and make comments on recipes when I try them). Only at the time I substituted corn for the peas. I'm not a pea fan. Aaron and Jona like peas though, so I took one for the team and made it with peas. I wish I could say it changed my pea-perspective, but I'm still not a fan. The chicken and sauce were great though, and I loved the biscuit on top.
What are you having for dinner tonight?
