Ok, so overall during this pregnancy I havent done great at making dinner every night. But these last couple of weeks I've made it a goal and I've done pretty darn good.
I always like knowing what people have for dinner (is that wierd?) ... so... I figure you totally want to know what I've been making... right?
Maybe not, I'm tellin' ya anyways! It's such good stuff.
Some faves were:
Chedder Baked Chicken. The breading on this was so good and the chicken turned out moist and delicious. I get annoyed with baked breaded chicken because the breading usually slides off so easily, but I liked the three step breading process- I think when you dip it into a flour mixture first instead of a wet misture first it stays on better. I don't know, I'm no expert but that's what it seems like.
Tuna Patties. Yum. Cheap, easy, and delicious- very good things. I served them with mac & cheese and a salad.
Swedish Meatballs in Sour Cream Dill Sauce. Mmm. So good. Pretty easy too. They were somewhat reminiscent of the IKEA meatballs, which was what I was hoping. I need to get some of those lingonberries they have there. I served with homemade mashed potatoes.
Turkey Chili. This has definitely become a classic here. It's best when it simmers for a couple hours and gets nice and thick. I actually usually put in less meat and double the beans- one can mashed and one can not.I like to serve the leftovers the next day with baked potatoes.
And my VERY favorite:
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala. I was so amazed by this. Josh and I looooove Indian food. I've always wanted to make some ligit tasting Indian food and this recipe is IT. Mmm. Definitley satisfies that crazing. I wouldn't stray from the recipe one bit. You might be a little leery about authentic tasting Indian food in a slow cooker but this lady knows how to do it. I promise it will remind you of your favorite Indian restaurant.
I made the yellow basmati rice that she mentions on the recipe and some homemade naan. I grilled the naan on an open george foreman grill.
Her blog is FAVORITE food blog. I've made other good stuff from it as well.

Anyways, here's Indian yumminess. Indian food isn't the greatest for being aesthetically pleasing, but you get the delicious idea...
