stephmodo: Menu of the Week

Menu of the Week

• 29 January 2008

It's funny, this "Menu of the Week" thing...given that I actually create a menu only once every two weeks :) One week I'm really motivated to eat well and therefore I cook well. But it's difficult to pull off with 3 kids, so I am usually burned out after one week of cooking nice meals. The next week we subsist on frozen pizza, take out, "brupper" (breakfast for supper), etc. Then after a week of that I'm sick of eating in such a way so I go back to planning a nice menu.

And the cycle continues....

Rosemary & Garlic Studded Leg of Lamb (1st lamb venture) with Rosemary Flageolets (substituting navy beans--can't find flageolets in SLC)

Cauliflower and Ham Gratin, Salad, Fruit

Vegetable Beef Soup, (I add 1 lb. of ground beef to original recipe; freezes well too), Virginia Light Rolls

Cobb Salad with Garlic Vinaigrette & a crusty loaf of bread

Black Bean Burritos with Garlic, Cumin & Cilantro; Salad with Avocado & Cilantro; Spanish Rice

Grilled Red Snapper with Lemon Fingerling Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli

If you have some fabulous recipes I need to try, please email me!


  1. wherever did you learn to cook like that? i am thoroughly impressed! p.s. I was a chi o with your sister in law caroline... and she is one of my sister chelsea's best friends. i love your blog!

  2. you and I are kindred eaters...tell me about the cauliflower gratin...I've looked at the recipe many times but haven't tried it yet. Now I'm motivated, as we had frozen pizza last night...

  3. Steph may be too modest to tout the cauliflower gratin, but I was a lucky partaker of 3 helpings! It was VERY good!

  4. If you like chicken enchiladas... check my blog for a recipe from Gormet mag. I've tried many different enchiladas and this recipe is the best ever!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
