This week I'm finally getting back in the swing of things. I am so happy to have my hubby back home. It's been very lonely without him, especially since I could rarely have any communication with him. I don't know how people do it with their husbands gone for months or years at a time. I was going crazy without having him around, and it was only 2.5 weeks!
Ok, on to the menu for this week!
Monday - Lemon-Garlic Chicken with Pasta and Quick & Easy Alfredo Sauce
--I love this alfredo sauce! It's quick, it uses ingredients I almost always have around the house, and to me, it tastes amazing. It may not be *quite* as good as REAL alfredo sauce, but I love that it is so easy and pretty much fool-proof to throw together! I always add extra garlic... mmmm
Tuesday - Cheese Steak Sandwiches (crockpot)
Wednesday - Gumbo with Chicken & Italian Sausage (crockpot)
--I looked for a while to find a good gumbo recipe, and kinda pulled several together to create this one. I think it's exactly what I was looking for! dont' forget to add the roux at the end... gives it that something extra special!
Thursday - leftovers
Friday - Argentinian Pork Tenderloin (cooking the pork in the crockpot)
Saturday - leftovers again, or out to dinner with friends!
