**My camera is broken(the battery won't stay in) so not all my pictures came out.
*** The challenge at A Bowl Full of Lemons this week is Menu Planning, which actually ties in to my Sunday Cooking. I will explain at the end.
This week's recipes come from The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook, which I checked out of the library. We have Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, Hot Artichoke Dip and a Chuck Roast.
Pico de Gallo
The next picture was lost :( You just mix the mashed avocado with some of the pico de gallo.
I have a story about the avocado. Yesterday I went to the lone Mexican market in town and found some Horchata concentrate. I needed to pay with my debit card and there was a minimum which I was a few cents short of, so I grabbed an avocado from the counter and it was perfectly ripe for the guacamole :)
Hot Artichoke Dip. Ingredients were artichokes, mayo, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese. This is the only picture that survived
And no more pictures survived :( Stupid camera. Anyway, you put all the ingredients together with beef broth and cook for a few hours :)
Now, about menu planning. I don't really menu plan as much as I meal plan. What I do is look through a cookbook(or 2) and find some recipes, add the ingredients I don't have to my grocery list, go shopping Friday or Saturday and then cook the meals for the week on Sunday. Simple. Now, if you have kids, this may not be enough of a plan. Click the link above for Menu Planning and you will get some awesome tips for planning meals for your family. But for me and my husband what I do is enough :)
