What is On Your Menu?

Ok, lovelies, help me out.  I want to know what is on YOUR menu this week.  Sure, I’m still sharing some great ideas down below but I’d love to hear what you have cookin!

Sunday:  Sundays are just the perfect days to have slow roasted meats, like this herb roasted pork loin, for dinner.

Monday:  Salads are always great during the summer because they give a meal a lighter feel.  I am loving the idea of a chicken rice salad.

Menu Planning Help: WTCW #101

Busy moms and dads can use all the meal planning help they can find.  That is one of the reasons I started this whole What to Cook Wednesday series.  It allows me to find new recipes to feed my family AND provides some menu planning help to my readers. Win win in my mind!

So, since it is mid-week and what to cook is probably on your mind, let’s get started!

Sunday:  Let’s start off our week with a delicious meal of creamy polenta and chorizo. Throw in some roasted green beans and we have one delicious meal.

Monday:  Mondays are always busy as we get thrust back into the work/school week after the weekend.  Ginger, garlic and chili shrimp are perfect for these kinds of night because it cooks up so fast.

Happy Wednesday! 
I love that our Wednesdays here on the blog are filled with delicious recipes.  Putting together a weekly menu is so much easier when you can find inspiration all around blog land. 

Sunday:  A stew might sound a little heavy for our warming temperatures but I loved the idea of a red lentil stew so I had to add it!

Weekly Menu Plan – WTCW #94

Creating a weekly menu plan can be a real challenge sometimes!  It is hard to make sure it includes recipes you know your family will enjoy but also keep from always making the same old things.  That is what What to Cook Wednesday is here for!  It is your go to source for ideas to help build your weekly menu plan!

Let’s take a look at what is on the list this week…

Sunday: Cooking seafood on the weekend is always great because I make a quick run to the store and get it super fresh.  This week, tomatillo shrimp makes an appearance.

Monday:  We’re shaking things up and doing pasta on Monday!  How does pasta with a pale ale {yep, beer!} cream sauce sound for a meatless Monday?

Weekly Menu Plan Ideas – WTCW #93

What to Cook Wednesday (WTCW) is super fun for me!  It helps me come up with new weekly menu plan ideas while also sharing with you some awesome recipes from around the web!

Do you ever make any of the recipes I share?  Maybe you have some recipes of your own you’d like to share here…If you do, shoot me an email because I would LOVE to have you guest post for a WTCW segment to see what menu plan ideas you have.

Now, let’s get on with our recipes!

Sunday:  Corned beef did not make an appearance in our house for St. Patrick’s Day.  So, I’m going to make up for it and have baked honey mustard corned beef this week instead.

Monday:  Stir fry is such an awesome option for a quick weeknight meal.  I’ve got Asian stir fry with noodles on my list for the week because I know our Monday is going to be a busy one.

WTCW #89

Happy Wednesday! Are you enjoying your week so far? I hope so!

How about I make it a little better and give you some delicious food to look at?

2.27 1-4

Sunday:  My love for soup is pretty much a given by now so it is no surprise to see at least one soup each week, right?  This week, it is chicken pozole.

Monday:  Meatless Monday again..what to make?  How about cauliflower “steaks”?

Tuesday:  I’ll have to tweak this recipe a little for Mathlete’s plate but balsamic chicken with mushrooms just looked too good to pass up due to his distate for mushrooms.

Wednesday:  Forget take-out!  Let’s make Chinese fried rice at home! I’m sure it will be just as delicious and much better for us!

2.27 5-7

Thursday:  Chicken cordon bleu is always super delicious but a real pain to actually make {especially on a weeknight}!  So, this chicken cordon bleu pasta seems like an awesome superstitution.

Friday:  I love curry.  Seriously, I could eat just about anything curried.  I’m going to give something totally new a try this week too with Thai red curry sausage stroganoff.

Saturday:  I don’t make meatloaf very often.  It makes a lot and tends to take a little bit more time that I usually have. I’m going to splurge {time wise} and make this pizza meatloaf though this week.
