Menu Plan Monday: Feb 8th

Well, we didn't host the Sunday Brunch that I've been planning for weeks! We weren't even here; we lost power for over 24 hours and finally went to stay in a hotel overnight. Our guests wouldn't have made it anyway; no one could get their cars dug out enough to attend. (How did we get to the hotel? We walked! And carried the kids most the way. We are exhausted!)

What this all means is that I have a number of fresh ingredients purchased for the brunch that I need to integrate into our menu for this week. We would like to reschedule with our guests, but the next proposed date isn't until March.

  • Monday: Marinated Salmon served on spinach with Black Bean-Sweet Potato Salsa
  • Tuesday: Spaghetti w/Meatballs, broccoli (as previously planned for Monday)
  • Wednesday: Potato Kale Quiche (from The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook by Cathe Olson)
  • Thursday: Leftovers (cooking day with a friend)
  • Friday: Bean and Cheese Quesadillas with salsa and sour cream, salad
  • Saturday: Baked Chicken and Couscous with Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes (from The Joy of Cooking)
  • Sunday: Visiting Grandparents; bring Shortbread Hearts pictured above and Multi-Grain Pancake mix (also from The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook by Cathe Olson)
  • Monday: Chicken and Dumplings Casserole
Two meals will use some of the Bone Soup I made up this weekend (despite the obstacles).

In addition to the Shortbread Hearts, I'll be making heart-shaped sugar cookies for two Valentine's Day class parties; I'll be back later this week to share about that.
