What We're Eating - Week of 1/26/09

I always plan our meals weekly, though I often switch nights around. I love knowing that I have a plan for the week and all the ingredients on hand. In general, we try to eat fish once a week and often have one vegetarian meal per week. I don't usually plan side dishes and vegetables - it depends on how busy the day is. We eat brown rice quite a bit, but it takes about an hour to make. I do freeze family-sized portions, which works really well. We also eat a lot of salad, broccoli, grilled vegetables (in the summer especially), veggies and dip, and sugar snap peas.

Monday (1/26/09)
Ellie Krieger's Sweet and Spicy Grilled Cheese
Chopped "Fixin's" Salad

Tuesday (1/27/09)
EK's Baked Shrimp with Feta and Tomatoes
w/w bread

Wednesday (1/28/09)
Spinach Lasagna with meat sauce

Thursday (1/29/09)
Island Pork Tenderloin (not the salad)
Brown Rice (Saveur's method is the best)

Friday (1/30/09)
Italian Sausage with Tuscan Beans
from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything

We have a very busy weekend next weekend, so I'm holding off on planning for now.

Discovery channel should have a reality show about you! The woman who can do it all!

Plan, prepare and cook home made meals every day, find new and fun things for her kids to do, travel, scrap book, blog, Read voraciously etc. etc. etc.

All on 1 cup of black coffee per day.

Maybe you should design and sew yourself a super hero costume.

You are so sweet, Alison! But I need to confess to about three cups of black coffee per day: remember, I'm an *addict*!

Glad you liked it - and I will! The Ellie Krieger cookbook is really good, BTW.
