I was going to use leftover brown rice, but then I found out it was too old, so I used white rice since I didn’t have time to soak it. If you use brown rice, you would increase the cooking time to one hour.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Enchiladas

Menu Plan Monday – Week of 5/3/2010

May 3, 2010

It’s been awhile since I posted. We went away to Iceland to visit family and got stuck for an extra week due to the volcano. It was nice to have a longer visit, but stressful not knowing when we were leaving. (Also, it’s hard staying in a non-babyproofed house with a 14 month old). We are eating a lot of veggies this week to make up for not cooking our normal meals.

Saturday – Rice pudding and lifrarpylsa (Icelandic liver sausage)

Sunday – Stir fried tempeh and veggies, rice

Monday – Hamburgers, sweet potato fries, salad

Tuesday – Fiskbúðingur (Icelandic fish pudding), potatoes, salad

Wednesday – Spinach Enchiladas, Mexican Rice

Thursday – Asparagus Crepes with Cucumber Avocado Sauce

Friday – Chili

Saturday – Family party
