I'll be linking up my menu at I'm an Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.
Simple sesame noodles: Yeah, as expected these were super yummy and super simple to make. The hardest part was chopping the garlic. Actually, the hardest part was trying to STOP eating them. I will absolutely be making this recipe again!
Broccoli quiche: Pat had me put this menu item off and off. He said he wasn't a big fan of quiche. However, when I was finally able to sneak this in on the night in question, he ate it up and reported that it was better than the other quiches I had made. Basically, he liked it. WIN! I'll probably make this again.
Baked ravioli: I halved the recipe since it was just the two of us and it was plenty with leftovers to spare. This was super easy to make and was pretty tasty. I will likely make it again.
Coffee cake muffins: As mentioned above, I'm not a morning person, so getting up to bake from scratch isn't always do-able. However, these came together so very quickly. I used wheat flour (since the recipe didn't specify what kind of flour) and I used coconut oil (since it didn't specify a type of oil either) and both of those seemed like healthier options. We really liked these. I could have even done without the chocolate chips. I did end up with an excess of the sugar topping and am thinking that I might sprinkle a little on the bottom of the cup next time as well. This made 8 cupcakes for me. I will most likely make these again.
Pork chops with creamy mushrooms and dill: I've made this many times in the past and really love this recipe. It was tasty as always, and I will definitely be making it again.
Lemony green beans: I was skeptical about this recipe. There was something about boiling (and not steaming or roasting) the green beans that threw me off. However, these beans turned out tender and delicious. It was a really simple recipe too. I will for sure make them again.

Now, I'm serious about those lunch suggestions. If you've got any ideas, I'm still looking for some. Thanks!
