This Weeks Eats 5.19.13

Last week was a good one for trying new recipes; the 'mojo sauce' that we used to jazz up our beef kebabs was SO simple, and SO delicious.  The new chopped salad turned out easy and tasty.  And I also experimented with a super easy way to make a tasty peanut sauce for our satay marinated chicken, behold:

We always have this red curry sauce from Trader Joe's on hand and I thought it might make for a good peanut sauce.  I just threw equal parts peanut butter and curry sauce together and nuked it in the microwave for 30 seconds to make it easier to stir.  It's also good with a little sriracha thrown in, or coconut milk to make it creamier - WIN.  

This week's eats:

  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - Tortilla Pie (trying this Dinner A Love Story recipe I had marked in Google Reader and I'm starting to go through all of those so I can get moving to a new reader.  Sigh.)
  • Wednesday - Creamy Indian Cashew Chicken (new irresistible looking recipe from Bev Cooks)
  • Thursday - Fish Tacos with Cilantro Lime Crema (an old Cooking Light favorite)
  • Friday - Baked Ziti (easy freezer meal, since we saved half the last time we made this recipe)
  • Saturday - Seven Flavor Beef with Bok Choy, Carrots and Brown Rice (yes, we'd eat this every weekend, but we're afraid we'd get sick of it that way...)
  • Sunday - Garbage Salads (my attempt at a salad they used to make at  Blackies in Chicago: hard boiled egg, bacon, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, avocado, red onion, tomatoes, blue cheese and a Ceasar vinaigrette) 
Linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers, as well as Rachel at In No Simple Language - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
