Nothing like pancakes to kick off the week

Because of the nature of the product and the fact that Nichole writes/thinks about food a lot, you can expect to read at least a little bit about eMeals every week for the next month or so. Nichole’s opinions remain her own, and she remains very opinionated about food.

On Saturday we got to see Missouri beat Georgia in person, and it was uncomfortably hot and the QB got injured, but it was mostly awesome.

We’re continuing the experiment this week, and once again I only have two of the week’s seven recipes on the roster. My goal for next week is to try three of them!

Monday: Orange Pancakes
This is one of this week’s eMeals picks, and it calls for a side of bacon. Sold.

Tuesday: Chicken Pot Pie
It’s October. It’s supposed to be pot pie weather, but it’s been pretty warm here lately. Maybe putting pot pie on the menu will bring in a little cool weather.

Wednesday: Tortellini
It’s easy, and the kids love it.

Thursday: Slow Cooker Chinese Barbecue Pork
This is another of the eMeals recipes. It sounds pretty tasty, and I’m always happy to find a reliable CrockPot meal.

Friday: Pizza
Yay pizza!

Last week the only eMeals recipe we ended up trying was the Philly Cheese Steak Stromboli. It was really good, but it called for far more roast beef than I actually ended up using.

  3. Roll up dough, jellyroll style, beginning with long side, pinching ends to seal. Place seam side down on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
