It's Both New AND Exciting

I made some changes to my menu plan for this month. I’ve been feeling much more into cooking lately, wanting to try new recipes – and it’s awesome. I think it’s my weird version of nesting because I don’t really have any nursery stuff to plan. Anyway, Dan and I were talking this morning about how some of our old stand by favorites just weren’t as exciting any more now that I’ve been trying new things so I thought I’d kick it up a notch, add some more new recipes and have fun while this lasts.

I made even more changes when I got a Vivabox in the mail to review for Momma’s Review. It’s the BBQ box and it has 3 great seasonings from Urban Accents and a gift card to get an order from Omaha Steaks or more from Urban Accents, basically, super exciting. I went searching on the Urban Accents website for recipe ideas to use with the seasonings (I’m not a seasoned chef yet and thus can’t really just wing it when it comes to seasoning) and was just drooling over the possibilities. I added in a few new recipes to my menu plan for the next week and a half so that I can try all three seasonings before my review is set to post. Yes I’m that excited. And I know Dan is going to be ecstatic when he sees all my new dinner ideas. He’s been a pretty happy dinner camper so to speak.

I wonder what will be more exciting for him when he comes home tonight – fun new seasonings and a gift card to Omaha Steaks … or … the fact that Rock Band for the Wii just showed up today, too. At least I’m assuming it’s Rock Band, because the box is ginormous and it’s the only big product I’m expecting, but ohhhhh who knows? We’ll find out when hubby comes home tonight and helps me open it!

Anyway, you can go visit the Monthly Menu post if you want to see all the changes, but if you don’t feel like looking over the whole menu, here are some recipes that are new. I may have missed a couple, but these are, I think, the exciting ones:

    Some of these new recipes sound really good. You’ll have to let us know please. That montego chicken sounds divine!
