Yup, I missed my weekly menu plan post yesterday. . .again! My hubby is pretty sick right now, so yesterday I took care of my duties as well as some of his and at the end of the day I just didn’t have it in me to sit at the computer and type away. Today things are looking much better and I’m ready to post my weekly menu.
Above is this week’s breakfast item. . .breakfast quesadillas! These are so yummy and can also be made and thrown in the freezer to have throughout the week. I just added scrambled eggs with zucchini, potatoes, and green onions to a whole-wheat tortilla and topped with strips of sharp cheddar cheese. I sprayed them down with olive oil and toasted each side. I served mine with a dollop of plain non-fat Greek yogurt and chipotle salsa. . .yum!
This week’s menu. . .
Monday: Slow-Cooker Tri-Tip Sliders w/ BBQ au jus/watermelon
I got this all ready in the morning before Laddie even got up and then found out he was sick. Needless to say, I had sliders by myself and X had PB&J in a slider bun with watermelon. This is a super easy tri-tip recipe and the meat comes out so flavorful and moist. I'll post about it tomorrow.
Wednesday: Teriyaki Fish/rice noodle salad/edamame & pineapple
I’m going to marinate fish in a pineapple juice-teriyaki sauce and serve with a rice noodle salad that’s tossed with peanut vinaigrette, snap peas, radishes, and green onions.
Thursday: Slow-Cooker Green Chili-Chicken & Rice Burritos/salad w/ salsa dressing
This is another super easy slow-cooker recipe that's perfect for a busy day. I add chicken breast to the slow-cooker along with chopped tomatoes, tomatillos, chopped green chilies, onions, and garlic and cook on low for 6 hours. I shred the chicken and add steamed brown rice.
Friday: Delivery or Take-Out
I’m also teaching a Lil’ Chefs Class this afternoon and we’re making our own ice cream and Magic Shell. Fun!
Saturday: Crispy Chicken Sliders/fruit salad/onion rings
Sunday: Football Food! Antipasto Platter & Pizza Spirals
I’ll post about these pizza spirals too. I’ve been seeing a lot of these “pizza rolls” on blogs lately. It’s just pizza dough with sauce, cheese, and toppings and then rolled and sliced before baking. They look like something X-man would love, so I’m going to try them out with just sauce and cheese and I’ll let you know how they turn out. For the antipasto platter, I’m just setting out salami, pepperoni, caprese salad, goat cheese-stuffed red peppers, and olives.
