Menu for the week of November 15, 2010


This is the first week of our much-anticipated Winter Food Share from the Food Farm (http://web.me.com/anniedugan/Site/Welcome.html). Many of this week’s recipes are inspired by the fresh ingredients that arrived in our box. A winter share is a great way to continue eating fresh, local ingredients throughout the winter as the vegetables are stored in a root cellar and delivered weekly.

This week I sorted through magazines that were collecting on our bookshelf. I’ve filed our favorites and several meal ideas came to mind in the process. Enjoy!

Sunday:

We have a paleontologist in our house⎯ this meal was picked with O in mind!

"Pumpkin Soup" came to the rescue at O's class party and The Boo Ball was a hit... which left little time for advanced meal planning this week. Have a Happy Halloween!

Sunday:
Grilled Pizzas
What do you serve for dinner on Halloween??!!?? The kids are so excited about trick-or-treating and dinner is the last thing on their mind. We’re trying pizzas on the grill….

Ingredients:
Your favorite pizza dough
Your favorite pizza sauce

Menu for the week of October 24


Sunday:
Gumbo
This is my husband’s style of cooking. While it seems like a lot of ingredients and steps, essentially once you get the meat and roux going, time does the cooking. It makes for a nice Fall meal when doing other things around the house or yard.

Menu for the week of October 17


Sunday:
Ernie’s Roast Lemon Chicken
I first read about Sesame Street’s C is for Cooking, Recipes from the Street cookbook on the Gluten Free Girl blog. It is not the type of cookbook that I generally would think of buying. But I fondly remember checking out Betty Crocker’s cookbook from the library when I was in third grade. I made lots of recipes that would make most adult’s stomachs turn over, but my friends and I had fun. The one I remember the most was scooping cottage cheese on a bed of lettuce with an ice cream scoop and then making a clown face with pineapple hair, a marchiano cherry nose and olive eyes…yum, yum!

As a way to bring variety to our meals and cook dishes that are simple, healthy, delicious, and hopefully appealing to our kids, I do a lot of meal planning. My hope is to share our weekly menus for you to glean recipes for your planning. In the near future, several organizational tools will be available that will make these recipes even more appealing…stay tuned!

Sunday: Our plans changed last Sunday, so we are going to try again this week
