Meal Pinning Monday

[What is Meal Pinning Monday?]
MPM is how I meal plan for our little family. I once spent a lot of time searching the web and my recipe books hunting for new recipes and ideas for what to cook every week. Then, Pinterest came along and made meal planning much easier for me. Every weekend I look over what I have pinned the prior week and decide what I would like to cook and make my grocery list from these recipes. MPM came about as a way to share what I am cooking, and to also see what others are cooking every week to hopefully get even more dinner ideas from other bloggers. If you don't pin your recipes feel free to just share what you are cooking. 

This is going to be a short week for meal planning here. Somehow we didn't manage to make it  through all the recipes last week so I hardly had to buy for this week, yay. We never made it to the Buffalo Chicken Enchilidas or the Chicken with Tomato-Herb pan sauce. So this week I am only adding this one solo recipe to my line up:

Confetti Chicken with Spicy Cream Sauce

This only thing I am changing about this recipe is that I am using Smart Taste pasta [can't convince the hubs to eat whole wheat, I prefer whole wheat] and replacing the cream with plain Greek Yogurt. 

This weekend I made Naughty Brownies to donate to the BCM bake sale and another batch for my students who brought their Benchmarking score up...and well we did keep a few:)

This is hands down my favorite brownie recipe, I completely cheat and use cookie dough from the tube!
