Quick & Easy Potsticker Dipping Sauce

I love ordering the steamed dumplings at our local Chinese takeout. I’d say it’s 50% because I love the dumplings and 50% because I love the dipping sauce. True story. So tonight when I made homemade pot stickers for dinner, I needed a quick sauce to go with it. I had too many things going on the stove, so I didn’t want to add another thing. I have no idea if this is authentic, but it was good!! If you want it spicy, go nuts with the sriracha . I just used a small squeeze so my kids would eat it!


5/5/13 – Dinner this week

I haven’t been as organized in the last few weeks, so today, I plan my menu on Saturday…. I might actually go to the store today too! (don’t tell anybody that I’m planning ahead LOL at least until Thursday!!)

Sunday: Pork Pot Stickers, Vegetable Fried Rice
Monday: ham, roasted potatoes, fresh green beans
Tuesday: grilled pork chops, corn on the cob, watermelon
Wednesday: Green Curry Chicken, jasmine rice
Thursday: Aidell’s Sausages, mashed sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli

What’s on your menu this week?

Happy Sunday! I’m getting ready for another busy week. We have training at work and I am fighting off some sort of bug. I feel pretty crummy, but am about to get up and get moving to the store and then the kitchen! We have houseguests this weekend, so we’ll cook something yummy for dinner tonight (or maybe go out)!? but here’s my plan for the rest of the week.

Monday: Citrus Soy Chicken Drumsticks, vegetable fried rice (I’m making this recipe but without the chicken)
Tuesday: Sausage and Peppers, rice
Wednesday: Orange-Cranberry Pork Stew, roasted potatoes, green beans
Thursday: Pizzas, salad (big salad for me)
Friday: dinner out

Lunches: Chicken salad

2/17/13 – this week’s menu

ahhhh long weekend. We are best friends 🙂 I love a 3 day weekend! Last night we hosted cooking club at our house and cooked the food of Hawaii!! I will share that menu with links and recipes at some point, but the food was amazing!! It’s so fun to try new things! I normally cook for the week on Sundays but since we’ll be home tomorrow, I plan to shop today and cook tomorrow. We’re having company this weekend, so my cooking efforts will be short.

Sunday: Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic toast
Monday: Melt-in-your-mouth Chuck Roast, egg noodles, green beans
Tuesday: Honey Cashew Chicken with Rice, egg rolls
Wednesday: Stuffed Bell Peppers, mashed potatoes, salad
Thursday: Leftover cleanup
Friday: dinner out with our house guests

Have a great week!

2/10/13 – This week’s menu

I have no idea if anybody ever reads my posts, but here I am! Listing my menus for the week helps me keep myself organized. Planning ahead is the way to go! I also cook most of the food for the week on Sundays which is a lot of work on the front but makes for an easy dinner time. Here’s what’s on tap for this week….

Sunday: Balsamic & Rosemary Pork Roast, mashed sweet potatoes, glazed carrots
Monday: Turkey Chili, cornbread
Tuesday: Herbed Chicken and Dumplings
Wednesday: Ravioli, salad, garlic bread
Thursday: Pot stickers, Steamed Asian blend (we have a GIANT bag from Costco that we need to finish up), jasmine rice
Friday: Dinner out!
