WTCW #85

SURPRISE!  I bet you didn’t expect to wake up and find a whole new blog design, did you?  We’re still working on a few of the little things so let’s consider this sort of a “soft reveal”.  The big celebration will come when it is all completed and ready for prime time.  Pardon the dust until then :)  {Oh, and a HUGE thank you to Monica from Designer Blogs for all the work she has put in!  If you need a new blog design, I highly recommend her!}


Wednesdays are always fun for me!  I love doing this feature and it really helps me stay on track with my own weekly menu planning for our household.

Do you do a weekly menu plan?  Do you try out recipes featured here?  I’d love to hear all about it!

Sunday:  The colder weather has me craving lots of comfort food.  Pot au feu offers an easy cooking lesson with the reward of a hearty winter meal.

Monday:  Soups are another food I turn to frequently during the winter.  They are filling and {generally} offer a lot of nutrition for little calories.  This winter minestrone was added to my list the moment I saw it.

Tuesday:  Did you eat your black eyed peas on New Year’s Day?  If not, we’ve got you covered this week with black eyed pea and sausage stew.

Wednesday:  Nothing says comfort like a grilled cheese.  Throw in some caramelized onions and bbq pork and you’ve upgraded a basic sandwich to a delight!

Thursday:  Pasta night gets an Asian twist with ginger soy soba.  Yummy!

Friday:  Eggplant parmesan has never been a favorite of mine.  BUT, I love the idea of transforming the dish into something new like roasted eggplant parmesan with feta.

Saturday:  Let’s continue on the quest to find new and interesting cuisine.  This week: a journey to Africa for North African carrot soup with chermoula.

See you next Wednesday for more delicious food!  And remember, if you ever want to guest post for What to Cook Wednesday, just email me to sign-up!
