What's Cookin' This Week (Mar 7 - 13, 2011)?
I have been feeling a bit ill for the past few days. Therefore, I'm going to keep my meal plan for dinners this week more familiar and easy. I do, however want to concentrate on some make-ahead snacks and sandwiches. I have those printed last.
Oh and don't forget about the fun contest I have going on~ It ends on March 12th!
Here's the meal plan:
Monday, Mar. 7 - Man's Italian Meat Pie (my husband's favorite) - add in some pureed broccoli. Banana toffee squares for dessert. (Recipe is from my cookbook)
Tuesday, Mar. 8 - Mardi Gras Day! We'll have red beans and rice in the slow cooker, a traditional New Orleans/ Cajun dish! I will serve this with a side salad and homemade bread. For dessert: Mini Mardi Gras King Cakes
Wednesday, Mar. 9 - Leftovers or Sandwiches
Thursday, Mar. 10 - Breakfast for dinner: French Breakfast Muffins and Breakfast Casserole - This makes a lot so I'm going to cut the recipe in half and freeze leftovers for later.
Friday, Mar. 11 - BBQ Chicken and Ranch Pizza (recipe is from my cookbook)
Saturday, Mar. 12 - Sweet and Spicy Meatball Sandwiches, Serve this with roasted potatoes and green beans
Sunday, Mar. 13 - Barbecue on the grill - chicken, sausage, Side of beans and mac n cheese with cauliflower pureed inside.
Here are the snacks, make-ahead recipes and desserts that I hope to make for this week as well:
(1) Berry Oatmeal bars - recipe is in my cookbook - I love making bars and freezing some for later when you're in the mood for a snack!
(2) Vegan Cereal Breakfast bars - This one looks interesting compared to others I've seen!
(3) Sun-dried tomato and chickpea sandwich spread - I want to prepare chicken sandwiches with this spread ahead of time, freeze them and pull them out for when I don't feel like preparing lunch or dinner this spring and summer!
(4) Cinnamon Banana Protein pancakes - I want to make a batch of these and freeze most of them for later!
What's on your meal plan this week? I will be sharing some easy, delicious recipes in the coming days.
Don't forget about my contest either - submit your ugly foods that taste great!
