Weekly Menu - January 9 through 15

Okay. . . I am going to try this as a feature. Each Sunday I will post what we will (most likely) be eating for the week. This will hopefully motivate me a bit more to post new recipes I try and will help previously posted recipes receive the spotlight once again.

We will see how well I can stick to this. Some weeks are better than others. Some parts of the year are better than others. I do find it extremely nice to know my options for dinner before I arrive home at the end of the day. I know it is PE's dreaded conversation in the car on the drive home. I don't really enjoy it much either. While PE is more often than not happy to split dinner preparation, I know we are both happier when there is somewhat of a plan. I also find when I plan our meals we make better use of the fruits and vegetables from the co-op and we get more variety in our meals. One side note: While we enjoy knowing what we are making, we don't enjoy having it tied to a particular day.

I am feeling like a bit of an overachiever this week, so I have lunches for those days I plan to be home and desserts.

Dinner - Main Dish:
Homemade Panera Potato Soup (new recipe) with Bloomin' Herb Bread (new recipe)
Spinach Enchiladas (new recipe)
Freezer Meal (not sure which one)
Dinner Out
Poor Man's Lobster (new recipe)
Lazy Chicken (new recipe)

Dinner - Side Dish:
Sauted Yellow Squash
Brussels Sprouts
Baby Bam Rice or Coconut Rice (depends which meal it will accompany)

Lunch - Main Dish:
Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches
Egg Salad Sandwiches

Lunch - Side Dish:
Sliced Apples
Broccoli with Ranch Dressing

Vanilla Cupcakes with Sticky Chocolate Icing (new recipes) AND/OR
Yellow Butter Cake with Vanilla Bean Buttercream (new recipes)

Barbecue Sauce II
Hard-boiled Eggs

So there you have it. What I plan to make this week.
