Week 91 Menu

Have you had these new Quaker protein granola bars?  Basically they’re peanut butter granola bars (hence the extra protein) and I’m addicted.  Just another “shouldn’t buy it ’cause I’ll eat it uncontrollably” item to add to the shopping list. 😉 They have lots of protein, not too much sugar and there’s fiber in there too, so I’m good if I eat a few boxes, right?

If you are relatively new to the blog I want to make sure you know that it is awesome when you comment and leave menus, recipes, whatever!  Please post your menus!  They don’t have to be fancy.  They don’t have to be detailed. You never know what might inspire someone else in their planning, so please share!

I have two repeats from last week because I forgot about a couple parties we had last week at dinner time.  I love it when that happens!

Spinach & Prosciutto Lasagna
– Salad & whole wheat french bread

– Thai Chicken Pizza (recipe feature to come!)

– Chicken Piccata (I have a recipe on the main dishes recipes page, but I might be modifying it this week…will fill you all in if I do)
– Mashed Potatoes
– Broccolini

– Leftovers

– A warm salad dish that my friend Natalee was telling me about…I’ll get the recipe and share it with you soon!

– Eat out

– Quiche
– Whole wheat french bread
– Salad

    Kelly. WRT the Chicken Curry Slow Cooker recipe, the last time I made it I totally made it up, so I will pay attention to quantities as I make it this week, make any adjustments, and hopefully develop a proper recipe to share. I can tell you what I bought at the grocery store to put throw in the slow cooker:

    1 pkg of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    1 can of coconut milk
    1 can of chicken stock
    1 bottle of Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste
    I will probably throw in a cinnamon stick, some cayenne, salt, corriander, and additional water

  13. 13

    Not in order:
    Beef Stew with tons of different vegies including cabbage, sweet potato, peas, corn, carrots, onions, mushrooms, potatoes and dumplings on top.
    Eat out – Gloria’s Little Italy
    Potage – Potato, carrot onion pureed soup
    Grilled Steak, grilled peppers, grilled potato salad (yum)
    pureed squash (from the garden)
    Invited to Dinner – should be Brazilian food, I made pao de mel (honey bread) sort of a gingerbread mini cake covered in chocolate. I will take for dessert…an experiment as I am trying to find a good recipe and my first try was a total failure.
    I made whole wheat bread this week with white wheat…I grind my own and use gluten flour and a little vitamin C. The bread is so beautiful and light and fluffy – especially for whole wheat. I just started doing this bread about 2 months ago and it has been awesome! Too much meat this week.
