Last week our family enjoyed some tasty new recipes. In particular, we all enjoyed the Thai Shrimp Linguine. I used whole wheat spaghetti instead of linguine and I doubled the recipe for our family. It was so cute to watch the kids eat spaghetti with chop sticks! As well, I couldn't find Thai peanut sauce at my grocery store so I made my own. (Again, I doubled the batch.)
Last night our family ate Smoked Sausage Pasta for supper. This recipe was also a winner! The small portion of leftovers didn't even last until morning, and our kids especially liked the sausage and the olives. I will certainly add this recipe to our list of family favourites.
This week I will try a few more new recipes. The Thai dish was such a hit last week, I'd like to see what the kids think of another one. Here's my proposed menu plan:
Monday: No cooking! (supper with my parents)
Tuesday: Mostaccioli casserole, green salad
Wednesday: Chicken pot pie (from the freezer), sliced apples
Friday: Thai coconut vegetable soup
I've just discovered that when I link to recipes from the newest Taste of Home magazines, access is restricted to Taste of Home subscribers. I believe the restriction is lifted once they send out the next magazine issue :-).
