What's for Dinner #7

Here are four dinners we are having this week:

Meal #1
Creamy Chicken and Rice
Garden Salad
Homemade Garlic Knots

Growing up, chicken and rice included cream of mushroom soup and I hated it. It was brown and mushy and never my favorite dinner. This one has no mushrooms, but is colorful, cheesy and really delicious! It makes a really big pot and tastes great as leftovers.

Homemade Garlic Knots
These come from Amy of Euna Mae's and they are fun to make and always a hit!

Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1/2 stick butter
1 clove garlic
Parmesan cheese

Roll out pizza crush on cutting board and cut into 12 strips. I use a tool like this. Make knots with each strip and place on a cookie sheet spread out like you would cookies. Bake on 425 for 10 minutes.

While it is baking, melt butter and garlic in small saucepan. Add a few shakes of oregano and spread on garlic knots. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Meal #2
Copycat Lettuce Wraps
Trader Joe's Veggie Fried Rice

I've never made lettuce wraps at home, but am excited to give these a try this week!

Meal #3
Healthy Chicken Potato Soup

We were in Las Vegas most of last week and all of the food was so rich and portions were so big! We ate a big breakfast and early dinner each day because we just weren't hungry for lunch. Coming home, Marcus said, "I just want a simple bowl of soup for dinner". So, soup is on the menu this week!

Meal #4
Crispy Tacos
Chips and Guacamole

Sweet Treat
Our church has DNOW for our youth this weekend and I'm bringing these cookies. They look amazing and different!
