Menu Monday!

Dinners this past week were great!

Bang Bang Chicken Po' Boy

 Not too long ago, I made bang bang chicken for dinner. J really wanted a po' boy and LOVED the bang bang chicken, so I put them together. They turned out really well. We had left over bread to use so I figured it would work. I love a lot of lettuce on mine so J made me take a picture with my lettuce and then with a normal person's amount :) Only negative side is the house smells like oil for about 2 days and we hardly use any. Nothing compared to what the recipe calls for! :(

Turkey Meatball Gnocchi

No recipe to this. I bought a pack of gnocchi and already had the meatballs frozen from a while back. I had never made gnocchi before so I kind of just put things together. We love pesto, so I thought that would be something good to add. It wasn't bad but I need to work on my gnocchi skills.

What do you make with gnocchi??

This was AMAZING!!! It does not look as good as it actually tastes. I promise! It takes almost like a Chicken Marsala. I let J pick the side and he picked Julianne potatoes. Not good. We totally should have gone with pasta. It would have been much better. I didn't touch the potatoes (I don't like that kind) so I can't really complain. Next time pasta all the way!!


I've wanted to make this for awhile and just made it last night. OH MY GOSH. Best salsa ever! We love it spicy, so I added a little more cumin and used a whole lime (love my limes). I also only had one can of rotel tomatoes so my recipe was a little different...


1 can (14 oz) whole tomatoes
1 can (10 oz) Rotel tomatoes with chilis
1/4 white onion (didn't measure in cup--used 1/4 of the onion)
1 clove of garlic--I used more because I love it!
1 whole jalapeno
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt (added more)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup cilantro (ended up being perfect)
1 whole lime, juiced (1/2 in food processor then half when finished and stirred with spoon)
