Dinner Ideas Week of April 14th

Postby mrs.shea » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:39 am

I felt kind of uninspired when making our meal plan this week...trying to pick some quicker things to fix.

Monday - Asian Style Fried Rice & Beans and baked tofu. I love this tip with the fried rice recipe - "Fresh ginger is a freezer gem. Place unpeeled ginger in a freezer bag. When a recipe calls for fresh ginger, peel and grate in its frozen state, no thawing required." I always end up with a nub of ginger that just sits and gets wrinkled and nasty and I end up throwing it away! Now I'll just throw it in the freezer when I buy it! What a great tip so I don't waste it!
Tuesday - Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage (using whole wheat bow tie pasta since I can't seem to find whole wheat orecchiette)
Wednesday - TJ's smoked sausage roasted with potato slices, corn
Thursday - Pepperoni Pizza Quesadillas, salad
Friday - Chicken Tika Masala, brown rice, some kind of vegetable

DH planned the menu this week, so I had to look up our plan!

Monday: Whole Wheat Pizza
Tuesday: Crock Pot Flank Steak Fajitas, Black Bean and Corn Salsa
Wednesday: Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese, Kale Chips
Thursday: Zucchini Lasagna
Friday: Leftover Zucchini Lasagna
Saturday: Broiled Fish with Summer Grape Tomato Sauce, Asparagus

Obviously, some of those are holdovers from last week that never got made. :) I'm apprehensive about the fish, but I know that it's healthy and we need to expose Audrey Grace to seafood. I may eat a lot of asparagus that night!
