Week 63 Menu and Maple Syrup Recipe

I have the easiest recipe for maple syrup. My mom always made it growing up. I think in the 8+ years that I've been married, I've bought syrup maybe once or twice. It's so fast and easy. You can make it in the time that it takes to whip up pancakes or french toast.

Maple Syrup
(this is a small recipe, makes probably 3 cups or so -- it's just enough to fit in my syrup container)

Mix in a sauce pan:
2 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 1/4 c. water

Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add: 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring (I use Mapleine)

Serve warm. Store syrup in fridge.


Now time for my menu this week:

Monday: chicken tetrazinni

Tuesday: all-day salsa chicken

Wednesday: Christmas party

Thursday: pizza

Friday: bistro chicken w/mashed potatoes

Saturday: easy night

Sunday: beef stew

All right, there is my menu. Now feel free to share yours. Have a good week!
