This Week's Dinner Menu

I didn't make a specific list for breakfasts, lunches or snacks this week - mostly because we just look in the fridge, see what needs to be used, and then we make it into something.  That said, asparagus was on sale for .98 a pound, and I have about a pound that I plan to roast and have with eggs for breakfast and as a lunch side.  I was also given some quail eggs, which I plan to hard-cook for one morning's breakfast.

Some of our fruits and vegetables (and quail eggs!) for this week.

I'm working several evenings this week, so I need some simple suppers I can either make ahead or make quickly when I get home.  Here's this week's supper plan.

franks and beans w/onions over rice, sliced oranges

king ranch chicken, salad, jello

Asian pork stew over rice, apples

nachos, strawberry smoothies

grilled steak, baked potatoes w/butter and sour cream, steamed broccoli

leftover night

marinated roast turkey, mashed potatoes w/gravy, 3-bean salad, glazed carrots

In addition to the scratch cooking listed above, I'll need to make some salsa, and I'd like to make some of those oatmeal/peanut butter/cocoa 'lunchroom cookies'.  That's the plan!

Sunday dinner this past week - cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice, lettuce, limes and sour cream - yum!

What are you making this week?

Any chance you would share the Mexican rice recipe? It looks like you found a good one and I am still looking.

I hope you like it. :)

Do you have a recipe for the enchilada's ? They look like something you would order in a restaurant!

Love reading your blog! Thank you for all the great ideas. This week we are making a ham that we bought at Christmas time and meatball sandwiches later in the week. Any favorites for leftover ham- (other than sandwiches and with eggs)?

I have had a few recipe requests this week - I will work on gathering them for everyone. Thank you for your kindness! :)

HeatherC-I like to toss leftover ham into scalloped potatoes or mac n cheese. You can also chop or cube the ham and freeze it in meal size portions. I usually do 4 ounces which makes it pretty flexible as I can thaw the number of packages I need.
