Menu #14

This past week's menu went as planned with some major highlights that I will be posting about this week—namely Chipotle Beef & Rice Stuffed Peppers and Nutella Blondies! 

I’m looking forward to the Butter Chicken in this week’s menu.  It is an Indian-spiced, slow-cooked chicken dish I’ve heard about several times but have never tried.  I’m also going to make some Barley Strawberry Scones that I will definitely post all about later this week.  Now for the task at hand—this week’s menu. . .

Monday:  Grilled Chicken Kabobs w/ cucumber-tomato couscous salad & minty melon

Tuesday:  Butter Chicken w/ steamed brown rice, mango, & garlic naan
Naan is an Indian flatbread that I usually serve with curries and other Indian-spiced foods.  It comes in whole-wheat, garlic, and curry flavors.  Xavier’s favorite is garlic naan.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Beef & Black Bean Tacos w/ calabacitas & Mexican brown rice
Calabacitas is a Mexican squash dish that is cooked with tomatoes, onions, peppers, and cheese. 

Friday:  Pizza or Chinese Delivery
Xavier and I are going to San Diego Safari Park on this day with my best friend, Janna.  I think all I’ll have energy for at the end of the day is a phone call for delivery.  J

Saturday:  Cooking Class—Appetizers
I’m teaching a cooking class for some friends of all appetizers on this evening, so dinner will consist of jalapeno-stuffed, bacon-wrapped BBQ shrimp, mini Caesar salads in parmesan cups, brie en croute, roasted garlic bulbs w/ crostini, and caramelized onion dip.  Everyone is bringing along wine or dessert, so it will be a fun night of appetizers, desserts, and wine…oh my!

Sunday:  Grilled Fish Packets w/ asparagus & potatoes
