My Menu Plan

2013 October 20


It’s Sunday evening, Van Morrison is on the radio, the kids are playing amongst themselves while I am preparing my very first batch of homemade mac and cheese for them. I am following this recipe. Just waiting for the clock to strike happy hour.

Here’s a look at our menu plan for the week:

Sunday – Chicken milanese with arugula and fresh parmesan

Monday – one-pot pasta; giving this another go with gluten-filled pasta because my attempt with the brown rice one did not turn out. Also trying to do “Meatless Monday”…again.

Tuesday – I have to go to Los Angeles for a work event and my man is going to join me for the evening; we’re hoping to sneak in a little quiet dinner and I am still dreaming about the lunch I had here with my parents last week so we might do that. Or go to another favorite that we always miss here in the suburbs.

Wednesday – broiled salmon with grilled pineapple, brown rice and sautéed broccolini with garlic

Thursday – steaks with grilled mini peppers and roasted potatoes

Friday – since we’re missing our beloved Taco Tuesday, we’re going to do Fajita Friday instead.

And since I always find myself baking up at least one sweet treat for my little crew every week, I thought I would start sharing that with my menu plan as well…for those of you with a sweet tooth like mine. I bought a 20 lb (give or take) bag of chocolate chips at Costco today and there is a pile of brown bananas on my counter so I am thinking it’s time to try these banana chocolate doughnuts that I pinned ages ago. Now I just need to add a doughnut pan to my arsenal…dangerous.

Have a great week.
