Can I be The Pioneer Woman?

Last weekend I watched Julie and Julia. I ADORED this movie!!! My husband lovingly watched it with me because he's just that great. He laughed and liked parts of it, but if he didn't see if again he'd be okay with that. I, on the other hand, have found a new movie to add to my list of favorites.

I sat down on this beautiful snow day to make a meal plan for the next week. I try to cook new things on a regular basis to keep my husband and I from getting tired of eating the same things over and over again. We both want to be disciplined about eating at home both to keep eating healthy and to save our budget. But, I believe the only way we can do this successfully is to change up our menus on a regular basis. Last week I discovered The Pioneer Woman website for the first time!!!! So, this week in very much a Julie/Julia-fashion I will be making 4 new recipes from her website. The recipes are listed below, and I will definitely make sure I let everyone know how they turn out!

Steak Bites
Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
Baked Chicken with Raspberry Sauce
Simple, Pan-Fried Pork Chops
