The Week Ahead in Menus

For something a little fresh and new, I have decided to lay out a week ahead in menus. Besides, so many dinners this week have been inspired by others so it's always great to share the wealth.

Monday - Venison Cheesesteak Subs on Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls w/ Oven Roasted String Bean "fries". S'mores made with dark chocolate & dried cranberries. Entertainment: very bad John Denver impersonations (it's campfire night at the Matava house!).

Tuesday - Grilled Fish Po Boys on whole wheat hoagie rolls w/ baby spinach & tomato. Grilled fresh asparagus. Fresh berries.

Wednesday - WWLMD? Joe works late so she'll most likely eat Quinoa topped with Black Beans and Veggies. Perhaps a poached egg.

Thursday - Chilaquiles de Frijole (my old standby favorite comfort food) with Sylvia's Calavasitas Con Maiz (my new favorite comfort food) w/ avocado, chipotle peppers in adobo and Mexican sour cream.

Friday - Shrimp Tacos w/ Baby Spinach, Mexican Sour Cream and Salsa Verde (thanks Fitmama77!). Some ice cream might be in order [note to self: pick up some Ben & Jerry's today!]

Saturday - Grilled Pizza

Sunday - Mother's Day Brunch in the morning so dinner will probably be very light and non-fussy. Such as fresh fruit over quinoa or cereal w/ some almond milk.

There you have it! Any left over meat will be sliced thin and made into sandwiches for the girl's lunches during the week. I eat quinoa topped w/ beans and veggies most days for lunch; sometimes lunch is simply  beans smashed with salsa into a "burger" that sits atop a sprouted grain bread with avocado. This week looks so tasty, I'm getting hungry already.

Have a fantastic week everyone.

  2. Thanks! Just for the week, I might have to do it Spunky Suzi style and post a pic of each meal!
