Friday Favorites: Meals

Our group out trick-or-treating.   Since my food photography needs improvement, this is the only photo you will get from me for this post but you will not be disappointed when you click on the links below!
I have to admit that I am sick of meal planning and of all the meals that I have in my binder, NOTHING looks good.  I have been following a couple of food blogs for a few months now and everything they make looks so good (I have major food photography envy, my photos never look that appetizing)!  I have been saving recipes that would work for our family in a folder in my e-mail and this week I decided to go through them and plan my meals this week around them.  I ended up having some great meals this week and my family loved them too!  Here are 4 of the dinners we had (we had pizza with friends on Halloween) and one dessert that I want to try:

Easy Butternut Skillet Shells - even my 2 year old loved this!  It reheats well too with just a splash of milk.

Brown Butter Garden Vegetable Pasta Skillet - Very quick and simple to make!

Spicy Peanut Noodles with Shrimp - Another quick meal, I got the sauce made and veggies chopped while the kids napped and then 15 minutes before my husband got home I threw it all together and we had dinner shortly after he walked through the door.  This one was probably my husbands favorite.

Stovetop BBQ Chicken Shells and Cheese - This one was really yummy and also reheated well with just a splash of milk.  The BBQ sauce I used to drizzle on top was a bit spicy for my 2 year old but when I reheated the leftovers I left that off and he loved it!

Kahlua and Cream Double Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes - Just typing that made my mouth water!  I can't wait to try these when I get some time to bake!  Maybe I will make these for myself for my birthday next week, haha!

I would have included pictures of each one of these but my food photography skills are no where near what you will see when you click on these links.  Check out these blogs and be prepared for your mouth to water!
