Weekly Meal Planning, Week of 10.17.11
It took me a long time to come up with a meal plan this week. Not because there’s a shortage of food I want to try (Pinterest has me pretty covered in that area), but because I just couldn’t seem to find the time to put the meal plan together. I seemed to be foiled at every turn! But here it is, at last, and I’m really excited about all of these meals, even if it did take me longer than usual to put them together.
Monday: Jap chae. This looks and sounds simple and delicious!
Tuesday: French onion pasta with roasted asparagus. I didn’t get to make this when I put it on the menu a couple of weeks ago, and I still really, REALLY want it.
Wednesday: Long boy burgers and fries. These look like a cross between meatloaf and burgers. Can't wait to try them!
Thursday: Spinach artichoke dip pizza. Mmmmm.
Friday: Bacon, egg and cheese savory waffle sandwiches, tater tots. I’ll use real eggs and cow’s milk for the waffles.
Saturday: Butternut squash enchiladas. I found butternut squash for 59 cents each. There’s no way I’m not going to take advantage of that deal!
Sunday: Roast beef with mushroom gravy with homemade egg noodles, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Yes, noodles AND mashed potatoes. What you do is mix the beef and noodles together and serve the whole shebang over mashed potatoes. I've never made my own egg noodles, but this recipe looks really easy. I think this is going to be delicious and perfect for a chilly-weather Sunday supper.
