I know the dates for this challenge have passed, but I like hearing about recipes tried.

Last night I did Baked Chicken Parmesan and tonight I'm doing Coach Nicole's Vegetarian Meatloaf. I'll post thoughts on the Comments thread, hopefully, tomorrow.

Pumkin Muffins

by LORILARSENRN, a sp member's recipe
Going to make these tommorrow.

This recipe calls for two ingredients, spiced cake mix and canned pumpkin. How easy is this? Wonder what they will taste like? For such a simple recipe.

Shrimp Stir Fry today

Yesterday:

Mediterannean Baked Fish

Both are from Spark Recipes and I found both wonderfully tasty!

The mediterranean Baked Fish has several herbs, lemon juice, apple juice, orange peal a hint of orange juice as well as crushed tomatoes. The flavor of the fish came out sweet and savory. My husband even enjoyed it. Instead of using the rice, I had it over couscous with a hint of lemon juice and garlic sauce. It was YUMMY!

For the Shrimp stirfry, Instead of using corn starch, I opted with 4 tablespoons of whole wheat all purpose organic flour to substitute. Nice, crispy shrimp with wonderful veggies. If you really want to, you could use rice or Soba noodles with some bragg's Amino soy sauce. YUM!
