Menu Plan Monday – Week of 1/5/2009

This week I cheated for ideas… I picked up a Women’s Day magazine last month that had menu ideas for January. The first two weeks had a lot of things we didn’t like, or couldn’t eat, but there were a few good ideas in there…. so my menus this month will have a few ideas borrowed from there.

Monday – Black Bean/Ground Beef Burritos (brown rice tortillas, goat cheddar, black beans, ground beef for those who want it, brown rice, red onions, avocado – Brown ground beef with cumin, oregano, paprika, and chili powder, heat beans with the same spices, serve with salsa and sour cream/goat “fresh cheese”)

Tuesday – Sausage and Peppers

Wednesday – Honey Soy Salmon (Mix lime juice, soy sauce, and a little honey. Spread over salmon and bake.)

Thursday – Chicken with Sundried Tomato Sauce (Bake a whole chicken breast seasoned with poultry seasoning, Italian seasoning, herb salt, paprika and pepper. Take about a half cup-3/4 cup sundried tomatoes in oil, a few tablespoons of grated Romano, one clove of garlic (chopped), and a little chicken broth (maybe 1/4 cup) and puree in a food processor. Just before chicken is ready, heat sauce and serve with the chicken.)

Friday – (Crockpot) Turkey Chili Mac

I usually stop at Friday because most weeks we figure out Saturday and Sunday when we figure out the meal plan for the following week, because we usually go shopping on Saturday. So from the past week:

Saturday – Cheeseburgers on sourdough spelt buns & oven baked sweet potato “fries”

Sunday – Thai-style curry chicken thighs with pineapples
