Menu Plan Monday - 2/27/12

Oh, boy.  No real menu plan last week.  School was off for Winter Break, so we didn't have much of a plan.  Thankfully the weather was nice and warming up.  Spring allergies have started here.  I need to start planning (and baking) for Purim packages.  Here's a peek from last year.  I know we will be making the traditional ones, but the funfetti ones were such a hit I really feel like making them, too!  Perhaps I need to make an inventory of the baking supplies I have (oh, dear that's a job).  But before all of that, I need to make strawberry jam.  The Florida strawberries are rolling in to the stores now, which means soon enough our local u-pick farm will open.  Yeah, Spring is arriving!!!

Menu Plan:

Monday -   Chicken Continental with rice and sauteed spinach.

Tuesday -   Pasta night, veggies and dip.

Wednesday - Orange Beef, stir-veggies

Thursday - Homemade pizza

Friday - Baked tilapia, challah, not sure what else.

Menu Plan Monday - 2/13/12

Menu Plan Monday

Missed last week to post the menu.  The kids and hubby came down with a cold last weekend.  Everyone is on the mend now, but it was a slow start to the week.  This weekend the weather was blustery and cold.  We've been fueling up on citrus fruit and comfort foods.  I made some broccoli cheese soup in homemade bread bowls that was super yummy.  And I made the always popular spaghetti and meatballs on the weekend.  Looking forward to milder weather by the end of the week.  I am so done with winter already!

Monday - A BIG batch of chili.  Homemade french bread.

Tuesday - Heart-Shaped Pizza I think this is becoming a tradition.  We've definitely had this the past few years, and was requested again this year.

Coeur a la Creme With Strawberries

I'm keeping the dessert a bit easier than last year.  If you would like to check out last year's V-day dessert: Heart Cake inspired by iambaker.  It was incredible, but a bit time-consuming.

Wednesday - Baked Chicken "tenders" with asparagus

Thursday - Pasta -

Friday - Roasted Chicken, Challah, carrots
