Weekly Menu March 24

23 Mar

I have a lot of cooking ahead of me this weekend so I am going to post my weekly menu early. My plan is to wake up as soon as Whole Foods opens on Saturday so I can be in and out in a half hour without having to see anyone, get home and start prepping meals for the week. If all goes as planned I’ll be able to post the recipe for Chocolate Eclair Cupcakes this weekend too!

Lately, I’ve been cooking exclusively from the Happy Herbivore cookbooks but I recently picked up a brand new cookbook from the library and it looks amazing!

In my opinion what makes a great cookbook is one in which I am interested in trying 80% of the recipes and most recipes have a photo.

For the first time ever I have found a cookbook where I want to try every single recipe. Provided this week goes as well as expected I will certainly be adding this book to my collection.

I made this week’s menu extra long because I was disappointed with last week’s meals and figure if I increase the number of meals I’m creating the better chance of success.

Worst case scenario: I’ll carry over any meals I don’t make to next week.

Breakfast & Snacks

  • Homemade Yogurt (for Strawberry Barley Breakfast Bowl)
  • Chocolate Brownie Larabars
  • Blueberry Almond Chia Squares
  • Tofu Scramble with Homemade Ketchup
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies (I swear I will only eat one or two as part of this week’s cheat)

Dinner Entrees

  • Chimichurri Tacos
  • Penne Alla Vodka with Garlic Bread
  • Caribbean Vegetables with Coconut Rice
  • Meatloaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Asparagus
  • Chicken Pot Pie minus the chicken and the pie 🙂
  • Kasha with Caramelized Onions & Mushrooms, Garlicky Greens, and Roasted Carrots

I bet you wish you were dining with me this week! You are welcome to join me in spirit if you tell me what vegetable should I serve with the meatloaf.
