Menu of the Week

• 16 December 2009

A little preface about the "menu of the week" posts for those of you just tuning in...I write these posts not because I think it's important to share what we are eating; rather, I think (and hope!) that many people appreciate the new ideas and recipes presented. Sometimes we find ourselves in a rut, only making the same handful of recipes we've made for months, or even years. When we see what other families are eating for dinner, it makes cooking wholesome meals seem doable and often sparks a general interest in trying something different.

Discovering new, delicious recipes is one of my favorite things to do, yet old-favorites certainly have their place. Typically when I meal plan, I write out 5 meals (I figure one night we'll eat "Brupper" and the other "leftovers"); three or four are meals I've tried before and the other 1 or 2 are recipes that are new. Sometimes I make them again, and sometimes I don't, but teaching kids (and husbands!) to appreciate variety is a good thing :)

This week's menu:

Perfect Roast Chicken, Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus with Lemon + Pine Nuts

White Cheddar Corn Chowder, Mixed Greens with Dijon Vinaigrette and Cloverleaf Rolls

Homemade Cheese Pizza with Veggie Sticks + Fruit Wedges

Slowcooker Beef Stew with Rosemary Corn Muffins

Couscous + Parsley-Encrusted Fish, Salad, Herb Roasted Potatoes

Dessert: Bittersweet Molten Lava Cakes with Haagen-Daas Vanilla Swiss Almond ice cream
