We had a mixed bag this month and there are several recipes that will go to the recycle bin when I finish this post. No meal was bad, but they just weren't good enough to repeat. Here's the rundown of what we made in February.
The first recipe of the month was Orzo with Chicken and Asiago. The funniest part of this recipe was trying to get the kids to find Asiago cheese in the case at Kroger - they had a hard time with the spelling & pronunciation. We were short on orzo, so did 1/2 orzo and 1/2 pasta and it was still pretty good, but the kids weren't crazy about it. It is a one pot meal, one dinner meal (no leftovers if all four of us ate it), which is nice every once in a while.

That night was the start of the winter Olympics, and I had a crock pot meal going all day to make dinner easy so we could settle in on the couch. Hungarian Beef Stew was a big hit - it makes a nice savory stew/soup that you put over egg noodles. The noodles also make it easy to make a swap for the kids - they had noodles for dinner without the stew. I love this use for stew meat and we are sure to make it again.
