2 for 1

First up: Weekend Baking 1.4!

I think I've shared this recipe before, but here it is again, because it is always a huge hit:

My Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these for our Super Bowl "Fiesta" last weekend and they went faster than any other food we put out. Delicious!

I scoop the dough onto the pans with a regular-sized ice cream scoop, which is a lot easier than using a quarter cup measure because the dough comes out a lot easier. These are big cookies, but so good!

Next: Monday Meal Planning 2.5

Monday: French Lentil Soup with bread.

This is the best lentil soup I've made yet. I'm still having some pretty strong meat aversions, so I'm doing whatever I can to get in plenty of protein and iron and this accomplishes that wonderfully plus adds in lots of veggies. Yum!

Tuesday: California Vegetable Pizza

We make this nearly as the recipe prescribes, with the following exceptions: we use a pre-made thin pizza crust (like Boboli), and cook it in the oven. This is one of my favorite meals, especially when I'm craving something very fresh tasting.

Wednesday: Spaghetti, Salad, and Garlic Bread

Use your favorite recipe, or ours. We use a jar of our favorite sauce and add in browned ground beef, and sliced mushrooms and zucchini that we've sauteed.

Thursday: Cayenne-Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa and rice pilaf

Aaron said that he asked Cayenne nicely to stop rubbing the chicken, but he wouldn't. (He's a comedian!)

Friday: Queso Dip and Chips

This is my mom's recipe and what we served for our Superbowl party, along with Pico de Gallo (which I highly recommend) and guacamole (and the above mentioned cookies).

Here's the Queso recipe:

1 lb. ground beef, browned
1 1b. Velveeta
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 medium onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
Chili powder, garlic salt, and hot/taco sauce to taste.

Combine in a crock pot (you can cook onions and green pepper before adding, if you'd like) and cook over low until the cheese is melted. Serve with tortilla chips.
