Menu Monday (On Tuesday)

We're back in action!  Internet is up and running!  :-)

I'm linking up today (one day late!) with Rachel over at In No Simple Language for Menu Monday.  One of my goals for 2013 was to meal plan.  So far, so good!  I figured that if I linked up to Menu Monday each week, I'd feel like I was being held accountable! I left my planner at work, so I honestly can't remember what we had this week and what we had last week, and I didn't get a picture of all of our meals either...I'll get better!  Here's what we cooked up in the Brooks house this week (or last week!)...

Roast Beef & Provolone Paninis with Carmelized Onions and Horseradish Cream Sauce.

These were so delicious!  We've had a panini maker forever and we always forget we have it!  After this yummy sandwich, I think we'll remember to use it a bit more!

Stuffed Peppers

Eh.  These were alright.  Probably won't be making them again.  I sort of meshed together a couple of different recipes and they just didn't have much flavor.  They were stuffed with ground beef, brown rice, onions, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and were then topped with shredded cheese.

Shrimp and Grits

Barrett makes the best shrimp and grits.  So yummy that I couldn't get a picture of them before I stirred it all together and started eating!  It's a tasty medley of grits, cheese, bacon, red peppers, onions, garlic, shrimp, and some other seasonings that I'm not sure of. 

Loaded Potato Soup

This was a weightwatchers recipe that a friend of mine posted on Facebook.  It was super easy to throw together and was maybe even yummier the next day.

Chicken Enchiladas

This was (according to Pinterest) "the best white chicken enchilada recipe."  It didn't disappoint!  It was perfect and made a huge pan!  Great recipe for a group.

Another Pinterest recipe that did not disappoint!  I made this exactly the way the recipe called for.  We served it over brown rice and it was delicious!
I thought this was good...Barrett hated it.  It wasn't saucy enough for him and it was pretty mushroomy.  It's definitely a dry pasta dish and you've got to like mushrooms.
