I promise that this is NOT turning into a menu-planning blog! These posts are quick and easy for me, and that’s about I have time for these days!
Here’s what was on the table last week (I may do these a week behind, so that you can get my two cents on the new recipes):
Monday: Cooking Light Orange Curried Pork, with yellow rice and roasted fennel (which was a new vegetable for me, so delish, sliced the bulb, put a little EVOO (1/2 tablespoon) and salt and pepper, in the oven at 400 for about 30 mins).
Tuesday: New Recipe! You’ve Got Supper’s Slow Cooker Barbacoa served in flour tortillas with store-bought mango salsa. This was the STAR of this week’s menu. Easy and delicious — it will become a regular on the slow cooker circuit around here for sure!
Wednesday: Cooking Light’s Chili with Pasta and Beans. One of our favorite chili recipes – easy and quick.
Thursday: Tortellini and Banana Pepper Salad. A favorite in the warm-weather months. I love all of the flavors and that the dish is light, but really satiating.
Friday: New Recipe! Weight Watchers Mini Feta and Vegetable Frittatas with steamed snap peas and bagel and cream cheese. Everyone really liked these, even my picky 4 year old. Spray or butter the heck out of the muffin tins because these stick! I may see if it works equally as well with liners — the clean up was less than fun.
Saturday: Salmon Burgers with green salad. Another freezer staple in the spring and summer. We throw these on the grill frozen, put them on potato rolls with grainy mustard, Claussen pickle chips and tomato slices, and it’s a yummy, good-for-you burger! P.S. It’s equally as good wrapped in lettuce or over a salad.
What’s on your dinner menu? Any inspiration you can share?
