Week 466 Menu

Happy Sunday! If you’re currently on winter break, I hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are. We’ve eaten so much vetebrod there’s no way we could be anything but happy.


While I’m sort of skipping meal planning this week, I do know some of the food we’ll be having. All of the grandparents will be in town and it’s going to be a fun week, filled with some cooking, lots of eating, and the Rose Bowl (go Stanford!).

How’s that for a meal plan? 😉 Thank you to the faithful meal planners who posted their menus last week. You guys are the best! Just like last week, please post your menus and provide inspiration for everyone else, since I’m not doing much of that myself. 🙂

    Sunday – fried polenta with Cajun spiced shrimp
    Monday – fried rice with Vietnamese summer rolls
    Tuesday – gnocchi with pomodoro sauce
    Wednesday – chicken tikka masala with Naan and rice
    Thursday – leftovers

    Saturday – leftovers?

      Thanks Kindy! My husband is off work this week, and I am working from home, so lots of time to prep, cook, and eat new foods!

    • Caroline

      Thanks! Ended up nixing the fresh pasta on Friday (not enough time), and doing a quinoa asian slaw. Then we were out of leftovers by Saturday, so went with your cilantro sour cream enchiladas (and used leftover thanksgiving turkey that had been in the freezer). Thanks for giving us a place to post our meal plans! It really helps me stay on track 🙂
