What's Cookin' This Week (Jan 31 - Feb 6, 2011)?
Last week I enjoyed making and eating party snacks, appetizers and meals meant for tailgating and sports events. I'll be posting those yummy recipes each day this week.
However, my meal plan for the coming days is me trying to get back on the normal track with more traditional family-style meals and snacks that we like to eat. So here is what I have lined up for us:
Monday, Jan. 31 - Italian Style Turkey Burgers (recipe is from The Five Dollar Dinner Mom cookbook), with sweet potato fries
Tuesday, Feb. 1 - Chicken Ropa Veja with Carrot Rice and side salad
Wednesday, Feb. 2 - Leftovers or eat from freezer
Thursday, Feb. 3 - Ham and cheese pasta casserole with Popover mini breads
Friday, Feb. 4 - Sausage Stromboli with veggies sneaked inside
Saturday, Feb. 5 - Italian Chicken and Penne Salad, from the Healthy Family meals cookbook, homemade bread
Sunday, Feb. 6 - Barbecue steaks and hot dogs with potato salad and beans
Here are the snacks and desserts I hope to make this week:
(1) Pumpkin spice granola - I'm excited about this one as I love trying new granola recipes!
(2) Breakfast crumble cake, from my cookbook - so easy and everyone loves this!
(3) Lightened up fudge brownies, from my cookbook - you'd never know this is "light" because of its great taste!
(4) Blueberry Crisp - this recipe has mayonnaise in it but it has rave reviews so I can't wait to try it!
What do you have lined up for the week? Any big party or Superbowl plans? Stay tuned for great party appetizers, snacks and meals that I will posting tomorrow and every day this week!
