Menu Plan Monday – January 11, 2010

Last week my new Sur La Table catalog came.  As I sat looking through it, I couldn’t stop myself from making all sorts of sounds. I was drooling over the new Le Crueset Cassis color cast iron and stoneware.  So, I made a trip to the store and bought a 3 1/2 quart French Oven and a 10.5 inch rectangular baker that came with a free 7″ x 5″ baker with my Christmas money.  It’s beautiful!

I will have to use it this week, but what to cook.  I know I have this menu planned, but I may need to make a little something new.

Keep in mind that the Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is broccoli.  If you have not checked back on last week’s cauliflower, you should.  There are some really good ones.  I’ll also be adding one with a delicious lunch I made today.

Monday – Turkey Burgers (Greek), Hand Cut Oven Fries, peas

Tuesday – Pork Pupusas, refried beans, Jicama and Watercress Salad

Wednesday – Ostrich steaks, Polenta Fries, roasted broccoli

Thursday – Shrimp Scampi with pasta

Friday – Unstuffed Cabbage Soup

Saturday – Red Chileatole with mushrooms, chicken & zucchini (R.B.)

Sunday Roasted Whole Fish, rice, sauteed vegetables

    Ah, deciding what to spend with Christmas money … always a tough choice! Looks like you made some good choices and buys though. (I blew mine in Key West and while I don't regret it, I don't have anything to show for it! LOL) Looks like another great week of meals. I'll come over for Sunday dinner … you know how I love fish! 😉

      Shirley- well you know that is the phrase I'll keep using for the next couple of months, it's Christmas money. They call that girl math, right. 🙂 I would have loved to have spent mine away somewhere, on a little island and not had enough to come home. Then I would have to live and blog from there. hmmm……

    Great Menu! I am always looking for gf recipes! GF can be difficult enough, I cannot imagine dairy free too! Thanks!

      Mandy- Thanks for stopping by and glad you like the menu. Dairy free really is a lot easier than gluten free. People pretty much get dairy but I still get people ask me if I can eat white bread. 🙂

    This is the first week in nearly two years that I haven't had a menu plan. I'm not sure what's come over me?! Anyway, I just checked out your hand cut oven fries, and I'm speechless. I can't wait to make them.

      Jenn- Warning, these fries can be addicting. They are the most requested recipe in my house.
