This Weeks Eats 8.25.13

Last week's recipe experiments turned out very tasty!  I'll definitely make the Buffalo Chicken Burgers again and the peanut sauce for this Thai Crunch Salad was to die for.  I switched it up a bit and made Thai Chicken rice bowls instead.  We just grilled up some chicken, sauteed the veggies a bit and put it all over rice with the peanut sauce drizzled over the top.  

I think I would like to turn every meal into a rice bowl.

This week I'm finally trying the Martha Stewart recipe that's taken over Pinterest in the last few months - the one pot pasta deal.  Will report back with my findings...

I'm linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers, be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!


  1. Ooh, peanut sauce. I need to read your post before making my new one- I'm always drooling over here!

  2. Thai Crunch Salad sounds wonderful! Like your rice bowls I turn everything into a salad bowl :)

  3. Yuuuum! This looks so good. I love rice bowls, too, but I'm not as creative as you. I'm totally going to use this thai recipe. Can't wait!

  4. Oooo, let me know how that goes. I've seen that on Pinterest, but I imagine that it might not be as flavorful as I would want.

    So, questions: How do you plan your grocery trips/recipes for the week? Do you pick recipes that will share similar ingredients? Do you just plan to have leftovers from each meal for lunch the next day?

  5. The Thai Crunch salad dressing was a hit with my toddler (yay!)....until I added the cilantro. Next time, I'll scoop some out for his food before I finish it off.
