Chili Beef Stir-Fry with Scallions and Snow Peas – Great recipe!! Stir-frys are a good way to get a lot of veggies into your life. Here are some adaptions I made to this recipe: I used taco seasoning for the chili-garlic sauce, I added an extra tsp honey, 1 tsp sugar, skipped the mirin or sherry, skipped garlic, added a tab bit less ginger, and instead of just the snow peas, I added a bag of pre-packed stir-fry veggies that included broccoli, snow peas, cabbage, and carrots. For next time, I would cut the meat smaller into bite size pieces, and add more garlic – I had run out and not realized 😦
You and Me Chicken Pot Pies – Instead of making individual pot pies, I just made one big one. I was looking for the phyllo dough, but couldn’t find it so I grabbed some pre-made frozen pie crust instead. This was way too much filling for 1 pie so I still have filling in the fridge and may make a couple more pies. Next time, I would use a pie pan to measure the amount of veggies and potatoes in advance and adjust the gravy accordingly to fill one pie. It could have used a little more seasoning, but all in all this was a great recipe. Maybe better saved for a weekend night when you are not starving!
Fettuccine with Creamy Red Pepper-Feta Sauce – This recipe was just Ok… I could see it more as a cold pasta salad and less as a nice, hot dinner. I added a little too much garlic – if that is possible. I love the roasted red peppers in the jar. Delicious and I still have some leftover for another recipe.
I hope you enjoyed my recipes and photos, and I am looking forward to another week in the Kitchen.
