This week the weather will hover around freezing so we are making some recipes to warm up our winter. We shifted some of our meals from last week to this week so menu planning was super easy this time around. Hopefully hubby bubby won’t have to cook as much this week! Here’s what we’ll be having:
Sunday: Sloppy tacos with all of the fixings. After browning the taco meat bakes in the oven to form a crust…seems interesting!
Monday: Skillet chicken and noodles with salad. It feels wrong to eat salad on cold winter days so I am going to try to start growing my own lettuce in an old coffee mug (check my Pinterest page if you want to see what directions I’ll be following). We always make salad dressings from scratch since it is super easy and then we can tweak them to be just how we want them to taste.
Tuesday: Slow cooker Brazilian black bean stew. With many OB visits in the afternoons these days I am trying to plan our menus to have things that are more slow cooker or prep ahead on Tuesdays.
Thursday: Sloppy lasagna joes with salad. This one is a Rachael Ray recipe. I LOVE sloppy joes and hubby bubby is not a fan of the Manwich variety so when I have an inkling for sloppy joes we usually use one of Rachael Ray’s riffs on sloppy joes.
Friday: Thai shrimp cakes with Thai-style celery salad. Luckily the shrimp are frozen so this was an easy one to push back a week. We’ll use the cilantro we already had for this when we have our tacos and then will get some more so that we have fresh herbs for this, too.
Saturday: Crispy chicken with shallots and lemony bean salad. Did I mention that I have a love affair with beans? Our kids bring lunch to preschool and pre-K and one of Ryan’s teachers joked that at Thanksgiving we were probably going to have beans instead of turkey. 🙂
What will you be having this week? Are you so over winter and hearty food? Will you be growing your own food this year? Hopefully our seed starting will go well over the next few weeks. I hope you have a great week! Thanks for reading!Connect with Radishes Are Pink on social media:
