What We're Eating - Week of 2/23/09

I skipped a week with our menu planning because we were out of town last week for a long weekend. Here's what I have planned for this week.


Spaghetti Marinara

This is one of my last-minute meals. While the spaghetti is boiling, put 1-2 T. of olive oil in a 10-12 inch pan. Add salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and 4-5 minced garlic cloves. Stir for about a minute until garlic starts to brown. Add one 28-oz can crushed tomatoes (Muir Glen are my favorite). Let simmer until spaghetti is cooked; then add fresh basil to taste. Serve with Parmesan or Romano cheese.


Cream of Broccoli Soup

Whole Wheat Popovers

I have a lot of fresh broccoli I got on sale, and I don't want it to go to waste. I'm not sure what recipe I'll use, but if it's good, I'll post it.


Giant White Beans with Chipotle

We never ended up having this a few weeks ago. I soaked the beans, though, and put them in the freezer, so this should come together easily.


Beef tenderloin, red bell pepper, and sweet onions on the grill
Crash Hot Potatoes (recipe on this site under "Sides")


Fish tacos

How did the popovers come out?

If you like popovers, these are great, though very whole-wheaty. Jack and I love them, and Jeff and Ben are meh about them. I'll post the recipe soon, though!

Not that fancy - it's the leftover meat from Christmas when you were here. :-)
