We started the week of right with a grocery shopping trip on Sunday evening so we’re set for the week. It’s great to be able to get that out of the way so during the week we can focus on the actual meals. This week is also Valentine’s Day and we plan to go out ourselves and we’ll celebrate on the actual day with a nice breakfast for everyone.
Week Two Menu: February 9th, 2015
More cold, more gray, more YUCK outside, but at least we have a great menu planned for this week!
Monday: Pizza night
It’s National Pizza Day! That means we’ll be having pizza for dinner. We’ll use our traditional wheat flour recipe for the kids and I’ll have a frozen pizza. We’re still working on perfecting a gluten-free pizza dough that works.
Tuesday: Steak Dinner
Seared steak, roasted asparagus, roasted baby potatoes, and side salad.
Wednesday: Taco Night
Thursday: New Recipe Night
New recipe night means we’re trying out a new recipe each week. This week we’ll be trying out an adapted version of Ina Garten’s sliders and a bacon-wrapped onion ring recipe my husband made last week. Seriously. It’s the best thing ever.
Heart-shaped pancakes and bacon roses (I really want to try this!) for the kids since we’re having an early Valentine’s Day dinner out.
Saturday: Clean out the Fridge Night
Each week we reserve a day to ‘clean out the fridge’ to help reduce our food waste and eat up leftovers. It’s always a hodge podge of food, but it’s kind of fun.
Sunday: Cracklin’ Chicken
A new family favorite this crispy chicken recipe is in the regular rotation for dinner. We’ll serve it with roasted baby potatoes and a big side salad.
