What's Cookin' This Week (Jan 10 - 16, 2011)?
Last week was a great one with my meal planning. I hope to be happy with what's in store for the coming days as well. I'm going to keep it flexible though because Kirk's mom is planning to visit us; therefore, we may eat out or enjoy a meal from the freezer if we're running around and playing tourist a lot. Here is what I have lined up:
Monday, Jan. 10 - Pasta Bake (I will keep this vegan and just add spinach to it) and make a homemade bread in my bread machine
Tuesday, Jan. 11 - Lemon Chicken from Jessica Seinfeld's Double Delicious! cookbook and a side of brown rice pilaf with broccoli
Note: I just purchased her sequel cookbook and I'm so excited to try her new recipes! If my family enjoys this, then I will post the recipe next week.
Wednesday, Jan. 12 - Leftovers
Thursday, Jan. 13 - Nacho Mama Mac and Cheese
Note: I plan to sneak in some pureed veggies in this one, probably broccoli and carrots!
Friday, Jan. 14 - Eat from freezer - Meat and Veggie Chili
Saturday, Jan. 15 - Eat out, probably sushi
Sunday, Jan. 16 - Barbecue steaks and sausage for Kirk's mom visiting us, side salad, sweet potato fries with this new chip dip I found.
Here are the snacks and desserts I hope to try for the week:
King Cake in honor of Mardi Gras coming up!
Super Foods Chocolate Bark
Orange Cranberry Muffins from my cookbook
What's on your meal plan this week? Anything good that you're looking forward to making?
This week I have a fancy-schmancy (but easy) complete dinner in store for you, a funny poem about eggs and a great on-the-go snack too. Stay tuned for great upcoming posts!
