Dinner Challenge Week 1

Here is the menu from my Dinner Challenge week 1-

If you can tell, I used a lot of the same ingredients just mixed them up a bit to create totally different meals. Also on Wednesday when we had Chicken stew I cooked extra Chicken and froze it for later use which was very handy in making the chicken pot pie on Saturday. I love cooking once and eating twice!
-chicken stir fry, rice, and homemade pot stickers
-lentil soup and toast*

-spaghetti, homemade bread sticks and salad

-chicken stew and rolls

-Corned beef and cabbage with potatoes

-grilled veggie pizza and salad*

-Chicken pot pie

*-Vegetarian meal

In other news...
My sister in Law Amber issued a most intriguing challenge... Can you make a different meal for dinner each night for a month. I have taken on that challenge and it has been so fun I thought I would use it to re-start my blog! After posting several menus on facebook, my friends have been requesting recipes. So this little challenge has snowballed big time! I have decided to work on one of my life long dreams to write my own cookbook.I have been jotting down recipes in a few kitchen journals and also here in this blog for a while  and now that the baby is here and we are getting to have more of a schedule I felt now is the time.(holy run on sentence batman!) So here I go! I really am looking forward to this newest challenge and I am going to need a lot of support from my readers!

Look for lots of fun additions to this blog as well. Including:

  • Kitchen Confessions- I do have some talent in the kitchen but I have had some funny experiences when things don't go as well as they could.
  • Meatless Monday- This is something we have been doing as a family for a while now and I thought it might be fun to share with you.
  • Family night Ideas- it's not all about the food ya know, we do some pretty fun activities together and I can't wait to share them with you.
  • Cleaning tips- I have figured out some shortcuts that I am sure you would love to try!
  • Product Reviews- My honest take on Kitchen and home related products.
Those are just a few things that I plan on adding along with my quick hints I have been doing. I really hope you all will join me in this re-launch of Hona's Helpful Hints!

My plans for the future are pretty cool too. I hope to be able to make some tutorial videos and expand to a you tube channel. It's always good to dream right?

So, Welcome welcome welcome to the new and hopefully improved Hona's Helpful Hints!!
