So we had a busy weekend and I was kind of scrambling to put together a menu. Especially with new ideas. But here it is.
Please don’t judge my spelling of kebabs and omelettes…haha!! I didn’t finish my coffee before I wrote the board and took a picture.
My goal is always to use the leftovers we have in the fridge but transform them into something new so it’s not really like leftovers. I hate wasting food!
What’s on the Menu Monday VIII
Sunday – Ham Dinner – It’s that time of year. Ham in the oven. Serve with some maple and walnut sliced sweet potatoes and a big side of roasted veggies.
Monday – Shish Kebabs – Last week I made breaded pork chops and I decided to save and freeze half before I cooked it. TIP: It is so much easier to slice meat when it is mostly frozen. So I took it out of the freezer this morning and let it thaw for a little while. Then sliced and diced into pieces. I made my favorite marinade for the pork to soak up all day. Marinade – olive oil, soy sauce, red vinegar, sugar and scallions.
These were a big hit today. I served them with brown rice balls and my daughter really enjoyed her “chicken on a stick.”
Tuesday – Omelettes – I am on a broccoli and cheese kick! I will probably make some scrambled eggs for the kids and we’ll have some english muffins too.
Wednesday – Salmon – I am going try to make tin foil packets. Salmon and asparagus. Easy clean up.
Thursday – Pan Fried Tofu topped with Mushrooms – Chop up tofu and lightly flour it. Pan fry it with a little bit of oil in the pan. Top with sauteed mushrooms. I like to make a sweet sauce to dress it too.
Friday – Take Out – I mean, I’m tired and it’s only Monday 🙂
Saturday – Chicken Bake – On the weekend I like to make things I can prepare in the morning and then just bake in the oven later. Chicken and cheesy cheddar potato bake sounds amazing.
Since Easter is around the corner, I wanted to share an awesome and fun dessert to make the-best-easter-cupcakes/
