Weekly Menu Plan, Jan 25 – Jan 31

by Alicia

Even though it’s Tuesday and we’ve already had a few of the meals on this list (and it’s not all that amazing to begin with!), I’m still determined to share it with you.  I need to get back on track to posting the plan on Sundays or Mondays.  We tried the soup last week. I really enjoyed it, but my husband thought it was a little bland (even though I used twice as much chorizo), so I might make adjustments to it when I make it again.

Dinners
Lemon-Pesto Chicken, roasted cauliflower, bread
Spaghetti, garlic bread, peas
Pizza (frozen or takeout)
Lettuce Wraps, gyoza
Sausage Stars
, salad
Vegetable Soup
Dad’s choice ;)

Another full week is up ahead!  I was grateful to spend all day today (I had the day off!) outside with my children.  My husband took down a double-trunk hickory tree that was too near our house this weekend, and I worked on taking off the small branches and limbs while the kids had several adventures!  They ate lunch in their tree house, and we just really enjoyed this preview of spring!

Last week was just as busy as I thought it would be, but it was great!  The mushroom pasta dish that I made last week was so delicious.  I enjoyed every last bit of the leftovers!  Our friends who invited us over served us some delicious okonomiyaki and topped the evening off with a stunning homemade made-completely-from-scratch cake!  Our tummies were definitely happy last week :)

Dinners
Black Bean Soup with Chorizo and Lime (new recipe to us), cornbread
Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken, steamed broccoli, rice
Swedish Meatballs, noodles
Stromboli, baked fries
Chicken and couscous
Dinner out with friends

This week is going to be quite busy for us!  Monday evening is the only night that my husband or I have nothing going on. I didn’t get to the Korean BBQ last week, so I’m hoping to make it this week.  I also saw a new yummy looking recipe on Smitten Kitchen and happen to have some mushrooms in the refrigerator, so I’m excited to try that recipe!  And, call me crazy, but I’m in the mood for grilled cheese and tomato soup, so we will have that, too ;)

Dinners
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Bulgogi Korean BBQ, rice
Mushroom Marsala Pasta Bake (new recipe to us)

Southwestern Spiced Nuts are a quick way to dress up plain mixed nuts.  They are a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet, and great for snacking or parties.

We tried a couple of new recipes last week, and they were both pretty good.  I did not make the sauce for the stuffed shells (I just used canned), but they were very cheesy and good. I think if I make it again, I’ll add the meat to the cheese mixture to stuff inside the shells.

This week is pretty busy for us, so I’m keeping it simple.  We get to start our Christmas celebrations this coming weekend, which means Butterball and Noodle soup!  It’s basically chicken noodle soup with “butterballs,” which are a kind of dumpling made from breadcrumbs, cream, and you guessed it, butter.  There will be lots of other Christmas goodies to go around!

Dinners
Pizza (either frozen or takeout, no time for homemade this week!)
Macaroni and cheese, peas
Butterball & Noodle Soup
Dinner at friends’ (x2)
Dinner out (or from the freezer)
Leftovers

We had a pretty good week last week.  It was great to be able to spend a few meals with some of our good friends and to see our children laugh and play together.  In my opinion, any meal is made better when seasoned with friends, family, and laughter.  We are so blessed to be able to spend so much time sharing life with those we love!  I am very excited to start some Christmas baking this week, too.  I already baked some Honey Cookies the week before Thanksgiving so that they could start “aging” as my husband says ;)

And on another note, I am so amazed at how the Facebook page for Everyday Home Cook has grown lately.  Almost 650 “likes” :)  Thanks for being so supportive, everyone!

Dinners
Roast Chicken, sweet potato biscuits
Three Cheese Jumbo Shells (new recipe to us), garlic bread, peas
Cajun Chicken & Rice Soup (new recipe to us)

Butternut Squash Soup

2014 December 4
by Alicia

Butternut Squash Soup is simple and light.  Not only does it have butternut squash, this soup also has apples, potato, carrot, onion, and celery, so it is full of flavor.  It is great as an appetizer, or even as a main dish with a nice side of crusty bread.
