This is going to be a week for easy recipes. My parents are coming into town and Krew's birthday party is Saturday, so I'm going to be doing simple repeats to save on time and energy. (And to avoid the always-present possibility of a meal flop when you're trying a new recipe.)
Teriyaki Tenderloin (leftover from last week's menu) - with potatoes and salad
Crescent Roll Chicken Pot Pie
Bean and Cheese Quesadillas
In regards to last week's menu, the Shepherd's Pie came out more like mush than pie. I'm not sure what went wrong. Neither Dave nor I had ever had it before, so we didn't know the difference (we'd have been clueless if it hadn't been for the word "pie" in the title). It still tasted pretty good. But after consulting with Kristin (who claims to love shepherd's pie) and having her confirm that no, it is not supposed to be mushy, I think I will try a different recipe next time.
The chicken and broccoli-parmesan pasta was ok. I may possibly make it again. I think I will leave out the mayonnaise next time and just use cream cheese and sour cream. I'm really not a mayo person.
