Tasty Eats and Meal Planning

 One of things I am excited about in the coming week is that my son and I did some meal planning. My son is not working now (by choice) so he is going to cook some meals in the coming days. We are going to have curry, cheese ravioli, Mexican salad, sandwiches with fried pickles in the air fryer, and whatever my husband is going to cook on his day off.

I am utilizing my grandmother's vintage cook book more (hope I don't ruin the book like the well used Better Homes and Gardens cookbook). I made coffee cake and meatloaf out of the book. Both turned out really well. Along with the meatloaf, I made garlic mashed potatoes and creamed peas. 

Speaking of my well used Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, I followed the cake doughnut recipe from the book and made these in the air fryer. These just turned out o.k. I dipped them in butter and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. I feel like we are still trying to figure out our new kitchen toy. I am beginning to feel underwhelmed by the results. So far the best thing to come out is the rotisserie chicken. At least our air fryer has many functions.

So keep an eye out next week for the results of actually planning our meals.
