Ah, menu plan Monday. Wow, it's been awhile since I've linked up to I’m an organizing junkie. This week isn't too stressful meal-wise as we have several outings planned that eliminate the need to plan/prepare for a meal. Here we go:
Monday - Ribs in the rotisserie, steamed Old Bay carrots & a green salad (with all sorts of good stuff!)
Tuesday - White chicken chili (found on eatbetteramerica.com) with crusty bread, possible addition of a green salad. The chili will be made Monday night so the flavors really have time to meld by Tuesday night. I'm really diggin' the recipe selection at eat better america!
Wednesday - I'm alone (Buppy's at work) so I'll fend for myself. Most likely it'll be a sandwich or breakfast-for-dinner kind of night.
Thursday - A pretty basic repeat of Wednesday. We'll see if I get any more ambitious to cook something more impressive for myself.
Friday - No plans. We're going to Buppy's mom's house for her annual "New Year's Open House", so that'll cover a late lunch for us. Then Buppy's father, his wife, Buppy's brother's family and our clan are all doing something for dinner. His father wants to go out to eat, so most likely that's what will happen.
Saturday - Lunch will be grilled cheese or tuna fish sandwiches (or leftover chili.) Dinner is going to be Salisbury steak. I've never made it, but I really enjoy it and almost never eat it. Buppy is skeptical as the only time he remembers eating it was when he was a child and it was part of a TV dinner. I have yet to figure out what recipe I plan to use, but I'm hoping to find one that's uber tasty!
Sunday - We're hosting a brunch to celebrate Christmas/Nick's birthday with Buppy's whole family. I plan on making this bagel and cheese bake for sure, and possibly this jiffy fruit salad I found on Hannah’s Hangout. Sounds good, but I'll see what else I can find. I'm looking for recipes that aren't too laden with fatty ingredients --- it'll be after the 1st and eating healthier is becoming a priority. Dinner on Sunday will be at a restaurant in Baltimore called Dionysis; we'll stop there for a relaxing dinner after we see the Nutcracker. I'm psyched!
If anyone has a good recipe (that isn't all too unhealthy) for Salisbury steak, please feel free to share!
