I think we're settling into the groove of menu planning - it seems easier as we go.
Here's what we had for Week Five:
Sunday: Pasta e Fagioli soup - I love Fine Cooking and have a lot of their special focus publications. So, when Mr. E and I were looking for a bit of a treat, where else would I look?
It was fantastic - and we had leftovers for Wednedsay dinner, and Thursday lunch. What a bonus!
Monday: Mediterranean Chicken Casserole - this was made on Sunday night and just needed to be baked for half an hour. Which is exactly what we need on an activity night - something fast.
Tuesday: Spiced Pork Tenderloin - with pear and cranberry relish. This was tasty
Wednesday: We had enough soup from Sunday left over that we had it again for dinner tonight.
Thursday: Homemade Egg McMuffins - Mr. E made these as I laid low wits the flu. Good times - but the boys love these so it all worked out.
Friday: Mr. E and I went out for lunch today, and we had leftovers. So, the kids had take-out pizza and we had leftover lunch. It was quick and easy after a long week of work.
Saturday: With no kids, it was a relaxed evening. We decided to have appetizers and French Onion soup. Except we had enough appies that we didn't need the soup.
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
home-made Guacamole (avacdo, red onion and lemon juice - a healthy, but rich and yummy dip)
This was another successful week of meals - here's hoping that the winning streak continues!
