One of my New Year resolutions is to cook more so I thought menu planning would be a good way to make that happen. Here's the plan for the next two weeks:
Monday, 1/9/2012--Sweet and Spicy Stuffed Chicken with orange-glazed carrots and sugar snap peas (and likely potato/cauliflower/turnip mash or even roasted broccoli as I'm trying to work more veggies into my diet)
Tuesday, 1/10/2012--Chicken and Dumplings (recipe from All You magazine)--includes pearl onions, carrots, celery and peas with parmesan-butternut squash gratin
Wednesday, 1/11/2012--Slow Cooker Lentil Stew with Cornbread Dumplings (plan to eat this meal with roasted broccoli)
Thursdays and Fridays are days with Favorite. We will either eat at home or eat out, but I don't want to plan for those days so we can spend time together.
Monday, 1/15/2012--Mushroom-Quinoa Burgers with Roasted broccoli and Potato/Cauliflower/Turnip Mash
Tuesday, 1/16/2012--Sunny Mediterranean Chicken with roasted broccoli
Wednesday, 1/17/2012--Salmon with Lemon Butter and Pineapple Salsa, roasted broccoli and grilled Asparagus
I may post pictures of the recipes, but I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to make that happen. I'm also willing to share recipes if any of these sound good to you.
