Yesterday found me so busy I forgot to post the week menu.
Of course with the weather lightening up there is more to do outside, so I just lost track of time....
Thoughts turn to warmer weather and lighter meals...(but not quite yet) also faster meals so one can DO the work needed outside... I have many errands to run today and possibly tomorrow also.
I am posting in no particular order because who knows what the days will bring...
1-English muffin pizzas
2-Hamburgers, french fries (home fries), and cole slaw
3-Freezer ready (homemade) stuffed shells (the last of them)
4-PAD THAI WITH CHICKEN (and veg that do not normally go into this dish but some a Philippine friend used to make it healthier) (I didn't make this last week because our schedule got turned around so it's back on this week with left over shredded chicken)
5-Tuna Sandwich with red onion
6-Wild caught Salmon if I can find it-I think I might make a Greek salad with this
7-Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff (saute pearl onions and mushroom, and garlic, and 1" pieces of carrot. Make a cream sauce, and toss in the sauteed veg. Cube chicken to 1/2 to 1" pieces, and place in the slow cooker. Add the veg and cream sauce. Cook low 6-7 hours or high 3-3 1/2hours)
When time is finished, add 1 container of sour cream (light or regular) and stir. serve with cooked noodles and a green salad..easy dinner on a busy day...
Last week I wanted to make a salad with dinner but had no lettuce. All I had left was carrots. So I shredded them, and added crumbled feta..it went over really really big. I made a vinaigrette to go with it, and my oldest had his with Ranch..(he puts Ranch on everything...it's his Ketchup)
I plan on making some Irish Soda bread this week, to go with a meal or 2. REAL Irish soda bread is generally white flour (not dark although they do make it with whole wheat sometimes too) with no caraway or raisins. It is a plain white soda bread they use at the table with dinner.
And am also looking for a good brisket to corn some beef. It will take longer then a couple of week so it will be a "belated Irish treat..." (I am not Irish, but my son's have Irish on their father's side...so for them...)
See you later,
