meal plan

This week seems a bit busier than most.  We are going out Monday, having people over Wednesday and Thursday.  So our dinner menu is a bit different this week.  However, the nights I am actually cooking I'll be using Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantry.  We don't normally eat Paleo, but I thought this cookbook looked good and healthy.  I have only cooked from this cookbook once.  I'm excited to try more recipes. MONDAY: David and I are going out so the kids will be eating pasta with pesto sauce and a salad.

TUESDAY: Bacon Tart page 79 and Balsamic Rosemary Beets page 53.

WEDNESDAY: I'm having a bunch of ladies over tonight to check out the purses I designed.  Everyone is coming during the dinner hour.  So I'm going to make up a bunch of turkey and ham sandwiches ahead of time for the kids.  I'm serving the sandwiches with fruit.

THURSDAY: I'm having two friends over to see if we want to start a little supper club.  We were all suppose to choose a recipe that intimidates us.  I choose a five layer pumpkin cake.  I'm not a baker so mine should be an adventure.  I don't know what else we are having, but we will all be cooking together.  I need to have the kitchen clean and dishwashers empty, so the kids dinner needs to be simple.  They will be having pizza and salad.

FRIDAY: Chicken Marbella page 68 with sliced cucumber and a salad.

SATURDAY: Colorful Winter Salad on page 48 with a variety of cheese, salami and crackers.

SUNDAY: We are eating on the go.  The kids have a Winter Carnival at their school and then sports in the late afternoon.  I'll pack about ten peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cut them in 1/4ths and the kids can have those for dinner in between our events.

Have a great week!
