Weekly Menu

A peek at what we're eating this week:

SundayPizza Waffles.  The only thing I didn't like about this recipe was that the batter was too thick so I added more milk and some water.  I used veggie pepperoni and no one noticed.  

Monday - Salad Bowls.  I roasted sweet potato, broccoli, chick peas, and kale. Defrosted some beets, and served it over quinoa (which I always cook in a broth instead of plain water).  I used Earthy Andy's OG Salad Dressing Recipe.

Q got his own version:

TuesdayHoney Mustard Chicken Salad.  This has chicken thighs, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato and pickled onion.  The sauce was a little sweet for me, but very tasty!

WednesdayChicken Meatballs with rice and the rest of the broccoli, roasted again. 

Thursday - Salmon.  I also have some Brussels sprouts that I will probably roast and add some bacon leftover from Tuesday's meal.

Friday - Beef Short Rib Pasta.  I made this recipe a few weeks ago and froze half of the sauce.  It was really good but honestly felt the short rib was wasted in a pasta sauce. Next time I made short ribs I will braise them and serve with mashed potatoes. 

All of these meals were (and will be) easy to make on a weeknight.  I didn't have to prep anything ahead of time, just whipped it up when I was finished with work (and Dave did Tuesday night's supper while I dealt with suspended subway service and shuttle buses). 

On Monday I wrote about looking for the light of Christmas starting now, and not just putting all of your Christmas eggs in one basket of December 25th (I'm mixing Christian holiday references).  Another one popped up this week when I decided to get some Oat Nog.  I enjoyed it last year, but mostly as a vehicle for spiced rum, or even better, Kaluha and Irish Whiskey. ;)
Love the little Canadian flag on the box.


  1. I am DIGGING that salad bowl, I don't have everything on hand to make that but going to throw some of those items together, yum!

  2. So many great dinner ideas! Thank you! Tuesday's salad looks delish!
