Menu Monday: 11/12/12

Oh my, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it?  I’ve been planning my weekly meals, just haven’t gotten around to posting them.

The weather here looks to be more fall-ish in the coming days so I’ve got stew and a few soups in the plan. There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of soup on a chilly evening, am I right? Plus, it’s super easy to double the recipes and have some on-hand for lunches, or to freeze the extra for another meal.

Happy Fall, Y’all!

Monday:  Garlic Beef Stew and Mashed Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash

Tuesday:  Honey Spiced Chicken Thighs and Steamed Broccoli and Carrots

Wednesday:  Balsamic Pork Chops and Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Radishes

Thursday:  Mexican Soup and a Big Salad

Friday:  Carnitas-style Taco Tower  and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I’m hoping to have enough leftovers to get us through the weekend, but if we don’t I’ll make a big batch of chili on Saturday.

You might also notice I’m planning two vegetables for each dinner. We don’t eat near enough veggies at our house. The kids are good about eating a few bites of the one veggie dish I usually make each night, along with a random carrot stick in their lunches……but I really want them (and me!!!!) to eat more. Sooooo, I am going to be making two veggies every night this week. I’ll let you know how it goes!
