Menu Monday

Linking up with Rachel today for Menu Monday! Here's some yummy goodness we've been whipping up over at the Brooks casa.

-Turkey Reubens: We used thick sliced sourdough for these paninis and topped it with turkey, Swiss, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and a little mustard for dipping. It's the perfect tangy combo.

-Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Dipping Sauce: These were super tasty. The dipping sauce was simple and was the perfect compliment to the shrimp. We served them with brown rice that we jazzed up with some sautéed onions, mushrooms, and soy sauce. Next time, I'll spray the shrimp with an olive oil spritz or drizzle with a little butter just to help the shrimp brown up a little more.

-Southwest BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad: This is probably my favorite salad combo. Chopped iceberg, red pepper, cucumber, black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, and grilled chicken tossed with a little sweet and spicy barbecue sauce and ranch dressing. Sprinkle some tortilla crumbles in top, and you've got yourself a dinner worthy salad.

-Low Country Boil: Shrimp, potatoes, and corn on the cob boiled in some Zatarains boil mix. Yum.

-Shake N Bake Chicken Parm: I've had a box of Parmesan Shake N Bake in the pantry for a while, so it was time to use it up. I was planning to just bake it and serve with roasted potatoes and green beans, but there was a recipe suggestion on the box for chicken parm and we had all the ingredients, so we went with it. It was really yummy and much lighter than your typical fried chicken parm.

We've got another yummy week planned! What's cookin' at your house?
