Menu Plan Monday - Nov. 8

Reviews from last week:

I finally went grocery shopping on Tuesday, so we didn't have to scrounge as much as I thought. It's always nice to have restocked shelves!

I made the herbed quinoa on Friday night. This was my first experience having quinoa. It was OK. I'm not sure if it was this recipe that I wasn't a big fan of or the texture. The dish turned out a little too lemony for my liking. I'll make quinoa again, but try a different recipe some time.

I made the Cheesy Chicken Lasagna for church on Sunday and also froze a pan of it. I liked it OK, but didn't love it. I think it needed a little more richness or spice. It was also a little dry. I think next time I make it I'll try adding spinach and a creamier sauce (maybe some cream cheese, more milk, half and half).

I also made a spice cake with my new mixer! This was my first time making a spice cake and it turned out OK. It really needs some kind of caramel sauce or icing. I decided not to do any icing, because my husband doesn't like cream cheese or sour cream icing. It definitely needed something!
