Wow….I missed doing this last week! We were on Spring Break in Atlanta, Georgia. I am now back in chilly Ohio, but keep wanting to say “y’all” instead of “you all”. LOL! I feel like maybe if I keep talking like I am in the South, it will feel like I am in the South too! Okay, wishful thinking.
Busy week ahead. Jon gets spacers in for his braces. Braces go on a week from tomorrow. Hannah has a play this week that she is in. Skating, normal busy stuff. You know. The fridge is full, though, and I am ready for the week.
Sunday ~ Homemade macaroni & cheese, baked beans & veggies (I may do a spinach/turkey burger and sweet potato for myself)
Monday ~Burgers, sweet potato fries, broccoli & salad
Tuesday ~ Salmon, Brown Rice, veggies & salad
Wednesday ~Stuffed Shells (ricotta cheese & mozzarella) smothered in 3 cheese marinara sauce, green beans & salad
Thursday~ Mexican night…pizzas or corn soft tacos, refried beans, Mexican rice, white corn & salad
Friday~ Homemade pizza or calzones, veggies & salad
Saturday~ Leftovers or breakfast for dinner
Butterscotch Brownies/Blondies (I have a few recipes I am perusing…I’ll post the final)
Chocolate something….I am craving chocolate & coconut, so maybe some chocolate macaroons. MMMMMMM!
Homemade Rice Pudding
Asparagus Thin is hosting this week’s GF menu swap. Rice is the ingredient theme. I have planned to use rice at least twice this week. The brown rice with the salmon will be a short grain rice, which is my favorite. I like that it is a little chewier than the long grain versions. For my Mexican rice, I usually use a brown basmati (I get it at Trader Joe’s) or brown jasmine (same, Trader Joe’s). I always use my rice leftovers for lunch either topping with black beans & cheese or sauteeing up some fresh veggies in sesame oil and tossing them together. YUM! I LOVE rice! I would also like to try making my own rice pudding, so I think I am going to add that to my list of “Baked Goods” this week, even though it technically isn’t “baked”.
