This Week's Menus

Okay, I know there are a few of you who are interested in this, so I'm posting my menus for this week. Sorry for the boring posts and lack of pictures so far this week. I'll get on that as soon as SOMEONE around here goes to school--anyone!--because between Luke being sick and the midwestern weather event happening, I've got a lot of little boys around here. At least we still have power, which is more than a lot of people around here.

Monday: Cornbread (that Luke made) and tomato florentine soup
Tuesday: Roast chicken and winter vegetables
Wednesday: Bean soup and homemade soft pretzels
Thursday: Make your own burritos with beans, rice, leftover chicken, and the fixin's
Friday: Pizza night (every Friday, but we rotate homemade, frozen and takeout)
Saturday: Scallops with bacon, potato gnocchi (Craig's menu)
Sunday: Leftovers or nachos

Nice and simple ... I'm trying to work on that. I almost offered grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner tonight but chickened out.

So, here's a relatively inexpensive recipe but "fancy" and, most importantly, yummy. Might be fun for a Saturday evening meal.

A friend shared this recipe with us, and now it's part of our Thanksgiving menu (cause it's make ahead).

Oh, if you decide to try this recipe, make sure to watch the you tube video of Alton preparing the dish. It's helpful!

Mmm, that looks awesome, So Yung. What I haven't mentioned with my meal posts is that I'm trying to plan dinners that everyone will eat. So, sadly, I don't make a lot of things I would like to. I try to push Luke a little bit with new foods, but not too much. Maybe if we do potato gnocchi first, then swapped half sweet potato, then go to full sweet potato, then next time with the browned butter. Sigh. Such is my life.

I, for one, love to hear about other peoples' weekly menus. I'd post mine except they generally consist of "egg in a hole for A, toast and string cheese for R, and some kind of burrito for C, Mr. K, and me"

Thanks for the inspiration!

I agree - thanks for inspiration! I love how you make roast chicken one day and use it a few days later for burritos! So smart. Could we trouble you to post or link to the homemade pretzel recipe? Thank you!
