Week 351 Menu

Happy Sunday!

stanford game

Well, apparently our presence was not a lucky charm for Stanford. Darnit! But our super quick trip to Utah was still a blast! We are on the road headed back to San Diego and hoping the kids survive a day of driving. I am going out of town again this week for a business trip, so I’m pretty much useless Β when it comes to meal planning. I’m in survival mode!

– Lasagna (from the freezer)

Sweet potato and black bean burritos (from the freezer)

– Chicken tenders (from the freezer)
– Veggie

– Leftovers

    • I’m intrigued, what are green bean fries?

    • Tell me about oven pancakes please!

    • Green Bean Fries:

      1/2 lb green beans, washed and trimmed
      1 c breadcrumbs
      1/2 c flour
      2 eggs
      2 T water

      1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
      2. Set up a breading station: flour in one bowl, eggs and water in another, and breadcrumbs in a Ziploc bag.
      3. Cover beans in flour (shake off excess). Roll in egg wash, then toss in the breadcrumb bag. Shake up bag to coat beans.
      4. Lay out fries on a wire rack over a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

    • Oven pancakes: all the pancake-y goodness w/out slaving over a griddle! I use Jane’s recipe for pumpkin pancakes (no matter if it’s “pumpkin season” or not!!)

      3c buttermilk pancake mix
      2c cold water
      2/3c canned pumpkin
      2 tsp ground cinnamon
      1 tsp ground ginger
      1 tsp ground nutmeg
      1/2 tsp ground cardamom

      Preheat oven to 375.
      Whisk up and pour into oiled muffin tin (fill up 3/4).
      Bake for 15 minutes (until set).

      Makes 16-20 standard muffins (AKA 15 3-4″ pancakes according to Jane)

      We’ve also poured it into an oiled 9×13″, and cooked for 25-30min at 400 with pretty good results. But, we have little kids and faster is better in our house. πŸ™‚
