The Mother of All Recipes Carnival!

I asked, and you answered. The Mother of All Recipes Weeknight Cooking For Busy Girls and Boys Carnival (TMOARWCFBGABC) is here!

Dr. Isis tempts us with her Herb Coated Filet and Basil-Feta Pasta Salad. A easy weeknight treat, especially if you make the pasta salad the night before, and/or marinate the filet in the herb paste overnight.

Efficiency guru EcoGeoFemme takes us on a magical one-dish journey with her Asparagus Quiche, a.k.a Egg Pie. A true weeknight special, this dish has your veggies, your protein, and your butter food groups all in one convenient dish! Using a store bought crust, or by doing it as a frittata instead of a quiche, this recipe only takes about 15 minutes of active work. Throw in a salad and you've got yourself a well-rounded meal!

EthidiumBromide has a classic weeknight cleaning-out-the-fridge suggestion, Shepherd's Pie. Chock-full of veggies, but with minimum chopping requirements, this is another well-rounded dish that comes together with minimal counter time. (Also, her picture looks straight out of a magazine!)

ScienceGirl posted two great weeknight meal suggestions, including an awesome looking schnitzel. I'm drooling just thinking about it, and I know it's something Bean would LOVE. Throw in some steamed veggies and you're good to go!

Scientia Matris also serves up two loaded-with-veggies toddler-friendly recipes, Fried Rice and a yummy looking Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup. Both easily fulfill the nutritious, delicious, and quick and easy requirements.

Your favorite snarky postdoc, Candid Engineer, shares her weeknight standby Shut Up and Eat Pasta. She clearly knows the way to my little Bean's heart, who loves both eggs and pasta. Put 'em together? That's a happy Bean. This recipe scores points for being easily adaptable to whatever veggies you have in the fridge... throw in some asparagus, some cherry tomatoes, heck even some peas, and you've got yourself a nice well-rounded dish.

ScientistMother shares her weeknight standby recipe, Broccoli Chicken Casserole. This dish can be assembled in about 20 minutes (probably even the night before) and certainly looks like it makes yummy leftovers.

As for myself, I shared my Everything But the Kitchen Sink Pasta recipe, and now my favorite Jamaican-Spiced Chicken Thighs recipe.

Female Engineering Professor also recommended the Cook's Illustrated 30-Minute Meals Cookbook. Based on my experience with Cook's Illustrated (i.e. that their recipes never fail), I'm going to have to pick this one up myself. I'll let you know how I like it.

Thanks to everyone who participated! I'll be trying these recipes out in the coming weeks! I'm always happy to add new recipes to my stockpile of favorites!

And in the future, I think I'll post more easy weeknight meals. It sounds like something we could all use for inspiration!

Very nicely done! Thanks!

EcoGeoFemme said...

Thanks for putting this together! It was such a great idea. I can't wait to try your chicken recipe.

BTW, I *heart* allrecipes.com . There is a lot of variety there, and you know when you find a recipe with 4+ stars from like, 234 reviews that it's going to be good. And you can save your favorites in a virtual recipe box.

Thanks for hosting! Off to try some of the recipes :P

That Jamaican chicken recipe looks awesome, Sciencemama! I am definitely trying it out this week! Thanks for the carnival! (And I am going to have to get off my butt to submit for the next go-around...)

I loved these posts. I have two little ones and have been getting tired of our tried and true go to meals. Will be fun to try something new.

Once the game is 80% complete you will need to work on the sound.

A bowler who can consistently pick up his spares can easily hold a 180 average without getting any strikes.
Next Jim Deacove developed a few of his own board games based on the principles of cooperation,
group strategy and joint problem solving.

Once you have done this, set the burn speed
to 4x and click Burn and wait for it to complete. Aside from the obvious
difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a high pressure situation, Larsen's feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese. If you want to be able to hit the ball further and harder, you should keep in mind to keep your grip on the bat loose, your swing should begin with your legs and hips, and finally, you must always follow your bat through.

Try simple games and check how your internet connection
is and then move on play more games. The only downside of it in a lot of people's eyes is the fact that there is no multiplayer content. For the purposes of this game, a "set" is at least three cards of equal value such as three Jacks or three fours and a "sequence" is made up of at least four cards that are of the same suit and run sequentially such as three, four, five, and six of spades.

It bears mentioning that there are also games and simulations available to those wanting to
learn to trade stock index futures. It combines RPG elements and strategy
for a very interesting game where you must stop the
rows of pirates ship from making their way down the river.

Upon examining some etymological dictionaries, one can conclude that
games are a creative expression of the human spirit through the creation of an activity that has an entertaining, instructive and competing element.

Much like Safari, the Camera app, the App Store and i - Pod, Game Center has no
option to be deleted when editing your apps. It
should come as no surprise that i - Tunes is
loaded full of pirate apps for i - Phone, i - Pod Touch, and i
- Pad. But what happens when a player runs out of race tokens.

However, every character in the game (even supporting players) should be presented
in this same detail. Harry Potter Hogwarts is one more entry into this new series of LEGO board games.

You might need heavier line and tackle to account for powerful river flows.

Spinning - Trout are aggressive and definitely will strike and eat smaller fish.
All the equipment is included in your deep sea fishing

Perfect pan size we encourage you take them back
to your hotel and have them prepared. Alaska salmon
fishing trip is one of the more favorite trips in Alaska.
Most of the fishable water in the upper river is boulder runs in deep
canyons and it is scenic.

This is a unusual looking cooking lid is made of soft silicone.
Personalized and theme cake asserts cake designs as per your requirements.
Typically overlooked as practically nothing far more than just dessert belittled as
a symbol that provides nothing more than a location to stick the candles, the birthday cake has lengthy been relegated to 2nd tier status in the realm of get together

com provides information on Fishing, Fly Fishing, Fishing Boats, Deep Sea Fishing and.
Never dawned on me that they might want to try it, so I
was surprised one day in the late-eighties when my son called and said they wanted to
go fishing. Itis one of the most important aspect is
that it is very much pleasurable, peaceful,
and every so oftenworthwhile also.
