Yum
We actually did it. Jim and I sat down and wrote out a menu plan for the week. Jim then did the grocery shopping while I stayed home with a napping Sera.

We did a mix of old standbys and a new recipe. We tried the new recipe last night. I saved this recipe from another poster on Favorite Ingredients Friday. I copied the poster's name, but apparently didn't copy the link. I tried searching for the blog, but came up empty-handed. If Should Be House Cleaning is out there, your recipe rocks. Jim gave it the thumbs up and called it a keeper. Sera called it yummy. My changes are in red.

BALSAMIC CHICKEN & MUSHROOMS

2 tsp vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, four 4-oz pieces (cut into strips)
2 cups mushrooms, small, halved (sliced crimini mushrooms)
1/3 cup canned chicken broth
1/4 tsp dried thyme, crumbled (discovered that this is the only herb known to mankind that is NOT in my spice cabinet, just left it out)

In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil.

In a medium bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar, the mustard and garlic. Add chicken and turn to coat.

Transfer chicken and marinade to skillet. Saute chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.

Heat remaining teaspoon of oil in skillet. Saute mushrooms for 1 minute. Add broth, thyme and remaining tablespoon of vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are deep brown, about 2 minutes longer. (I added the chicken back to the pan, covered, and let it simmer for another minute. I then turned the heat off and left it covered until the mashed potatoes were ready.)

Serve chicken topped with mushrooms. (I served mashed potatoes with this. It's the perfect accompaniment.)

Wow, this does look good. Congratz on the menu plan. This is the first week I didn't put one up in a long long time. I need to get one together, just no oomph atm.

Cheers, Kiy
