We had another good week celebrating family birthdays! I made a homemade Angel Food Cake with Raspberry Sauce for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s birthdays. We’ve had quite a bit of birthday cake lately so I thought it was a nice change, and it was partially selfish on my part to make a cake that I could actually eat. Everyone devoured the light, fluffy cake. There wasn’t much left, which is always a nice complement.
From last week’s menu, the Chipotle Meat Loaf with Twice Roasted Chipotle Sweet Potatoes (which actually became mashed potatoes because I baked the potatoes too long and the skins weren’t reusable for shells – oops!) was a standout meal. My son loved the chipotle mashed sweet potatoes - particuarly the green onion garnish. He loved the green onions! I might have to test out if he’ll try anything as long as it has a green onion garnish.
Here is what is on tap at my house this week:
Monday: Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
Tuesday: Bowtie Pasta with Salmon and Peas (sans cheese for me!)
Wednesday: Crockpot Falafel with Whole Wheat Pita Bread and Roasted Squash (bumped from last week)
Thursday: Slow Cooker Rotisserie-Style Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans
Friday: Evening Out
Saturday: Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas with Sauteed Spinach
Sunday: Clean out the Fridge!
