Ribs & Slaw

Last week, I got stuck at work late a few nights so the planned menu was pushed back a bit! The highlights & lowlights of the week were:

Monday: Cider Glazed Chicken (that everyone is blogging about.)
I think we did something wrong so will certainly try again! The chicken breasts we used I think were too big thus making the dish very dry. I LOVED the rice ... the badger, not so much. I'll put it on the rotation again using the proper cut of chicken and see if it's any better!

Tuesday & Wednesday we fell off the bandwagon and foraged for our suppers.

Thursday: My first foray into the Pioneer Woman cookbook my sister gave me for Christmas. 1 word on Penne alla Betsy: FANTASTIC! The girls I had over for dinner loved it! I made homemade bread & my friend J brought a yummy salad. It was perfect!{perfecting my bread recipe}

{thanks for the yummy salad (and taking of the photos) J!}

{penne alla betsy ... nom nom nom}

Friday: The pushed back marinated flat iron steak was great and the roasted veggies are a new winter favorite in our house! Highly recommend roasting sweet potatoes (we used white ones) and butternut squash.

I miss farmer's markets so much, you're lucky to live near a good one.
