I'm back with another bunch of meals. And I'm feeling really really lazy, so I may not get around to putting in any recipe links...if there's something you're interested in, you could always leave me a comment and I'll either add the link or email it to you!
- Mon. Oct. 22: meatballs and bocconcini and pasta: this was the cover recipe from a recent Everyday Food mag; we made it once before and it was yummy, much more so than the humble ingredients suggested. One suggestion: put the bocconcini in the bowls when you serve, rather than in the pot, otherwise you will be cleaning up congealed cheese until the end of time.
- Tues. Oct. 23: pork chops with mashed potatoes and some kind of veggie: not sure about a recipe for this, but it'll either be the apple sage recipe we used a few weeks ago or a breaded pork chop thing I saw in this month's Cooking Light, or the classic can of mushroom soup in the pan (this is starting to look more like my defrost the meat guide rather than a menu plan).
- Wed. Oct. 23: fish sticks, mac and cheese, peas: rinse and repeat, same as last week.
- Thurs. Oct. 24: sausage stew that I meant to make a couple weeks ago...again, I know a link would help, but meh.
- Fri. Oct. 25: burgers or pizza, using frozen stuff fixed up a bit; oven fries if we have the burgers, salad with both.
- Sat. Oct. 26: family coming over for pre-Hallowe'en festivities, and I'm still stuck on what I'm going to make; I'm thinking slow cooker, I'm thinking beef, maybe bbq beef on a bun (my fave recipe: one pot roast, one bottle of bbq sauce, and several hours on low), and there's a pumpkin bread pudding I want to try out too.
- Sun. Oct. 27: slow cooker ginger chicken with brown rice and broccoli, unless there's a tonne of leftovers from Sat.
Woot: big excitement. I should add that I made the most yummy banana French toast this morning from an old Everyday Food; the banana is just sliced up and put on top at the end. I mean, French toast is French toast, and it's pretty hard to mess it up, but this had cinnamon in the recipe, and I added some vanilla and it was so good. I've also been making homemade hot chocolate before bedtime instead of my traditional mug o' chai, and that has been delish.
Someday I will get clever enough to add the neat little "Menu Plan Monday" graphic to my post, but all I can manage is the link (hey! I did a link today! go me): check out I'm an Organizing Junkie who hosts all the Menu Plan Monday participants.
