Menu Plan Monday – April 12, 2010

green smoothies taste great, make me feel great

The weather has been so wonderful it has me itching for the farmer’s markets to open but around where I live that’s not until May.  So for now I keep grabbing a few little plants to add to what used to be just an herb garden.  Today I brought home a potato plant and lettuce.  We’ll see how they grow.

This week promises to go just as fast as the last one I’m sure.  Keep watching because I have an exciting announcement about something really cool that will start April 26th and involves food.  Well I guess involves food is not much of a clue for this blog.  Keep checking.

If you missed last week’s Friday Foodie Fix- Coconut Milk you need to check out all of the recipes shared.  So cool!  This week’s Secret Ingredient is Pasta!

Well this is a short one.  Time to go grab a piece of Double Chocolate Clementine Vita-Mix Cake that Brad and I made this weekend and watch the season premier of  The Tudors.  I think we need to change the name of this cake to Triple Chocolate since we added chocolate chips to the cake.  Brad’s idea and it’s great!  Can you really have too much chocolate?

Monday– Pork chops with carrots and polenta

Tuesday– Tilapia with bok choy, onions, spinach, mushrooms

Wednesday– Chicken Tandori Pizza with salad

Thursday– Cubano Jerk Burgers

Friday– Fried Shrimp and noodles

Saturday– Mushroom Rissoto

Sunday- Beef Burritos

Don’t forget Orgjunkie has lots of menu plans.

    Triple chocolate seems appropriate with horse racing (and the mostly elusive triple crown) coming up soon. 😉 Looking forward to the exciting news announcement! Eating a "bran" muffin and almonds with my tea, but a green smoothie would have been great this morning. Just too rushed to get one in.

    Have a great week, Diane!

      Shirley- Just had a slice of that cake and it's so good! That would be fun to serve if you were watching that last horse race. My green smoothies are down to a 3 min prep and 3 min mix. I'm still amazed every day that they taste like fruit.
