Today was day three of my new recipe week! I have decided that I am going to try new recipes all week long. I am sharing them if I like them. Last night was Indian-Spiced Braised Chicken.. I thought it was good, but no one else really cared for it, so I will omit it from my list. But if anyone is interested, just let me know, and I will share it with you.

Night one was great! The Asian Beef Kabobs were great, and the Chinese noodles that go along with it were very tasty too. All of the recipes that I am trying are from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food. My sister lead me on to it, and I love it. Most of the recipes are healthy, and easy.. The other thing I liked about it, is that most of the recipes are "pantry friendly" meaning, you will have most if not all of the ingredients on hand. I like that about a recipe!

Anyway, tonight we had the Spinach Pesto. I added some boiled chicken breasts as well, and it was delicious! I love those kinds of dishes in the summer! If you try it out, please let me know if you liked it!

Who knows what will be on the table tomorrow night, but if I liked it, you will be sure to find out soon!

Oh, and I am going to add the nutritional information because it might be important to you. .(It is to me!) Peter and I are dieting... me to lose the baby weight, and him... just to lose it! He has lost 30 lbs already! He is doing great.. of course for me, it is much slower going, but good progress still the same.

We really like pesto, spinach or basil (we grow basil now so that is how we do it usually).
You are so brave to try all new recipes on your family!
