Last week's new recipes had some failures and some successes. The Tangy Chicken and Cheesy Potato Bites weren't so great. The chicken was overcooked, so if I decide to try it again, I would drastically reduce the cooking time. The potato bites looked cool, but the texture was kind of funky. I think I'll just stick with regular cheesy mashed potatoes from now on. On the other hand, the Chicken and Artichokes with Wine Sauce was awesome. It was quick to make and was pretty impressive looking. Plus, it tasted fantastic. The Creamy Mexican Skillet was also fast, easy, and tasty.
This week we're back to some standard favorites on the menu. Our camping trip last week got rained out, so we are going to attempt it again this weekend. I'll also be hosting my last book club meeting of the year, so I thought I'd do a fondue party. I'll post my fondue recipes later in the week once I decide for sure which ones I'm going to use this time. Here's the menu. For more menu ideas, go to orgjunkie.com. Enjoy!
