Follow Up: What's Cooking - 10/1 Edition

Goodness, thank you for your sweet comments about our menu plan for this week.  You tickled my heart with your kindness!!

Many of you asked what the different vegetables were in our "Asian Pack". It's easier for me to just label each of the items, rather than try to explain it. So, here you go!

So far, our menu planning is right on target! Sunday's taco's were a HUGE hit! I highly recommend them, especially if you have a super busy day planned!

Plus, a cool new tip I learned... if you need to shred meat (chicken, pork, beef, etc) and you have a stand mixer... toss the meat (after it's been slow cooked) into your bowl with the beater attachment and turn it on. The beater will shred your meat perfectly!

(I'll be honest, I was hesitant to try it and thought that doing it would be lazy. But, Sunday night, I was trying to get the rest of our dinner finished when it was time to shred the chicken. So, I popped it into my mixer bowl and set it to go on low. Shazam... super fast and perfectly shredded chicken! Hoooray!)

There you go - a breakdown of the Bountiful Baskets Asian Pack for this week (don't forget - contents can vary from week to week!)

Thanks for visiting!

I am a huge fan of shredding meat in my mixer, too. It's also possible to shred boneless chicken that has been cooked in the microwave. When I need a quick meal, I just throw frozen chicken breasts on a plate and microwave them on high for 10-15 minutes, then add seasonings (taco, garlic, etc.) while they are shredding in the mixer. Super easy!
