Most of my new recipes of the week were for Cameron's birthday party last weekend. They are listed on the blog post about the party. I found all of the recipes through Pinterest. They were all good, but I can't say they will make it into regular rotation.
For Meatless Monday, I made Baked Tortellini. So easy, but not exactly the vegetable heavy meal I think Cameron intended. In my defense, he never specified that part! ;) I at least served it with a salad! This is so quick and simple to make. I found the recipe via Pinterest and I think it's supposed to be for some special oven. I left out the prosciutto (because of Meatless Monday) and probably only used half of the cheese. I baked it at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. I tend to follow recipes exactly the first go-round, then adjust later. I think you could easily make this with red sauce as well and make your own variations, like adding vegetables or meat.
The only other new recipe I tried out was Chicken Paprikash from Food Network Magazine. In case you're wondering, "paprikash" is Hungarian for paprika. We both really liked it. I think you could easily use chicken breasts in place of the thighs. I love boneless chicken thighs on the grill, but I find them to be too fatty otherwise. My dish didn't look quite like their picture. It turned out much more red. Maybe Food Network uses some kind of white paprika I don't know about? Oh well, it's still a keeper.
That's it for this week. I'll try to have a few more for next week. I've noticed I'm sticking with the main dishes again. Time to branch out!
