Monday Meal Plan

Catching up on a few of the recipes that I have yet to critique:

Super Simple Shrimp Tacos
I would rate these 4/5.  They were super simple to make, and contained all food groups so that was a definite pass for me.  I found the sauce a bit spicy (would add less cayenne next time).  Ryan found them a bit to cilantro-y, but I loved the flavour.  We also cooked up a chicken breast with Club House's new Cajun seasoning to add to these as Ryan isn't a huge shrimp fan.
Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
 5/5.  Finally a fettuccine Alfredo recipe that Ryan will eat (the man has a thing about creamy foods).  I swear I could add the word Cajun as a prefix to any dish and it would taste 10 times better in his mind.  Anyways, although this recipe definitely isn't the healthiest out there, we will likely make it again since all of the flavours went so well together.
Crockpot Coconut Ginger Chicken & Vegetables
This recipe was disappointing.  I really went out on a whim with this one as we do not typically eat any type of ethnic foods.  I was expecting something to really wow my taste buds, but this just tasted bland.  I would give it 1/5.

Two other recipes that I have tried this week:

Sweet & Spicy Pork Back Ribs
 These were delicious, but salty.  I added only half of the salt that the recipe called for, and I think that I would cut back even further next time.  There will be a next time though.  They were that good!
Cauliflower & Aged White Cheddar Soup
In true fashion, I didn't quite follow this recipe to a T.  I used leftover BBQ grilled cauliflower with Club House Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic seasoning.  I used yellow cheddar instead of white cheddar since that's what I had on hand.  Still, this recipe was a 5/5.

And finally, this week's recipes to try:

DIY Pita Bread
Chicken Gyros 
Salmon with Brown Sugar and Bourbon Glaze
Mojo Pork Tenderloin
Ratatouille
Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
