What's Cookin' This Week: 4/2 - 4/9

Travel weeks always mess up my meal planning dates a bit, so this week's list extends a bit long.  Michael's with us for one more day and Deanna's been out for the last couple days participating at States with her Drama Club.  I think I've seen her for all of 20 minutes total since Wednesday, but it sounds like they are doing really well.  Closing ceremonies today, so I think she'll be home for dinner.

She's developed a dislike of beans (!!!  Tragic!), so I took advantage of her absence to make Michael and I a big pot of chili on Thursday, and then yesterday we had chili salad with the leftovers (basically, Taco Salad with leftover chili instead of taco meat).

Here is what I'm planning to cook this week - the Chicken Mole with Yams is tonight... the rest will be sometime during the next week once I sort out schedules.


(This was really tasty, and the leftovers make for great wraps for lunch.  I can't believe it's possible to get a decent mole taste without a thousand fussy ingredients!)
