Menu Monday

It's been awhile since I did a Menu Monday, but it doesn't mean that we haven't been meal planning.  Here's what we were munching on last week:


And of course I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.  We really liked these, especially M.  Next time, I would season the patties with some salt, pepper, and a little Worcestershire sauce; I thought they were a little bland.


 This was SOOOO good.  Even M, who claims to not like quinoa, had two servings.  I honestly thought this was BETTER than the original broccoli-rice casserole.  It's just perfect cozy winter comfort food. 



 Another home run recipe from Gina.  I've always been afraid to make meatballs, since M is Italian and worships his mother's meatballs.  But this recipe is so different from hers that I knew I had to give it a shot.  HUGE success.  M ate multiple servings and had the leftover for lunch.  I liked that the meatballs stayed really moist and the sauce was perfectly seasoned.  I have a feeling this is going to become a regular for us...

Bon appetit!

I've been cooking so much from skinny taste but haven't made the meatballs. Thanks!

A friend of mine made the turkey meatballs with turkey sausage and put them on mini rolls with melted parmesan cheese. They were to die for!
