Menu Friday

Happy {Menu} Friday! I haven't done one of these in a while, so I thought I'd bring it back! 


What is better than a one-pot wonder?! The secret to this pasta is the noodles {I used whole-wheat} are boiled in chicken broth - yummy! I also added chicken for Brandon. 

We had pizza because of Brandon's company lake party. 

My great-grandmother, Memmie's, Shrimp Casserole + garlic bread 

Since I use Memmie's recipe card for this, I don't have a link for you. But it's similar to this recipe

Chicken Marsala Casserole + Garlic Bread & Asparagus 

This was good, but I thought it needed a bit more "oomph." Next time I'll add a bit more salt a few seasonings. 


The biggest thing to note here is that I added chicken for my protein-loving husband and used whole-wheat rotini. And, I cannot reiterate enough to follow the recipe and use the goat cheese log, not the crumbled stuff. I used the crumbled stuff this time {because it was on sale} and could tell a huge difference. 

Cooking Light's Hamburger Stroganoff + English Peas & Garlic Bread 

This is always a good, easy staple in our house. I do always have to add a bit more salt to it, but it's very tasty and surprisingly quick. I always use wheat egg noodles for this recipe. 


These are always an easy option for the end of the week...when I don't feel like cooking at all. Surprisingly, I let this be our one meatless meal of the week {just don't tell Brandon!} and always serve it with a nice Corona Light...and pretend we're back in Playa Mujeres. :)

Tonight we're having Tex-Mex again, as we're meeting one of Brandon's friends, Brandon {it gets confusing, trust me} and his fiancé, Kimmy, at Uncle Julio's in the 'burbs. I love, love "Uncle Who's" (as we call it) margaritas and salsa! 

Happy, Happy Friday!
