Menu Monday | New Recipes To Try

The best Pinterest recipes that you have to try!
It’s the last Monday of the month! That means I’m teaming up with my friends Come Home for Comfort and Polka-Dotty Place to share our favorite recipes from this past month that you HAVE to try!

I know it was August, BUT I was craving so much comfort food this past month. There were some good recipes to be adding to your Fall cooking rotation.

Creamy Coconut Green Curry Lentils | I was craving something warm and cozy one week, and ended up choosing this. MAN was this delicious! It required a bit of time – lentils needed to soak, and then it cooked for about an hour. But it was delicious and gave us left overs for days. And when I ran out of rice to eat with it, we had leftovers with crumbled up tortilla chips and that was good too! Definitely try this one!

Creamy Green Bean Casserole | Confession – I didn’t make the fried onions from scratch… seemed too much effort. But this was just delicious! I realize it was August, but I was craving this and it hit the spot!

Oven Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken | My husband really doesn’t like Chinese food. But he liked this! I ended up buying a pack of Gardein’s Crispy Chick’n to use in place of real chicken. But tofu would have been just fine too, just not breaded. The sauce was quite good! And it was pretty simple to throw together, especially considering I cheated with pre-breaded faux chicken.

Greek Tortellini Salad | I’ve made several variations of this, but it’s just such an easy quick dinner. And I like this kind of recipe because you don’t have to use EXACTLY all these ingredients. Just use what you have on hand!

What are some amazing recipes you’ve tried lately? Have you peeked in your trusty recipe box recently?

    Yum! I’m always in the mood for comfort food – I have to work hard NOT to serve it every night. 🙂 Even without from-scratch fried onions, that casserole sounds amazing. I could eat stuff like that as my main course any time!
