Weekly Menu

We didn't have any groundbreaking meals this week but what I hope you take from this post is twofold: you may be inspired by one or two meals and that you know you're not alone when you're ordering food ;)

Sunday - Wings and Shishito Peppers.  We like to have a simple supper on the nights we are are coming home from skiing.  The frozen PC wings work just fine. 

MondayTacos.  We were still shovelling snow before supper on Monday night and finally gave up around 6:00.  The kids were actually able to get this meal started and got everything out.  E started the meat and Q warmed up the taco shells.  Dave made the salsa and the only thing I really had to do was wash the lettuce.  The kids should be ready to do this alone in no time!

Tuesday - Salad Bowl.  Another week, another Earthy Andy salad bowl.  This one was a vegan Niçoise  salad.  The "tuna" was mashed roasted chick peas.  This was a hit with the kids too. 

Wednesday - Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese.  Usually I make our macaroni and cheese from scratch using this recipe where its mostly done in the microwave.  But this time I made the roux on the stovetop (starting withs some sautéed onion) and added pureed roasted butternut squash.  It was so delicious! 

Thursday - Order something.  We have been partial to dumplings and noodles lately so we may get that again. 

FridayPizza Night.  Dave's new pizza dough recipe actually starts on Wednesday now so it's well underway.

Saturday - Turkey Dinner.  We have turkey, gravy, and cranberry sauce leftover from Christmas (all in the freezer of course) so this is perfect for a winter weekend.  Turkey dinner is one of my favourite meals.

  1. I love that you are posting your meals for the week! That Earthy Andy salad has always looked good but I haven't tried it yet... I think I'll make it this week!
