Weekly Menu - Week of March 25, 2012
Where has March gone? I can't believe we've already changed the clocks and officially welcomed Spring. This has been a crazy busy month since I started my new job. I'm loving it but the days are flying by, which can be both good and bad. Unfortunately the warm weather we've been having has been replaced by cooler, more seasonable temps, so my idea of summer food will have to wait a few more weeks. In the meantime I'm taking this opportunity to enjoy some cold weather favorites before putting them back on the shelf for a few months.
Sunday - Steaks on the grill and Thai Pineapple Rice: I bought a big can of pineapple a few weeks ago and SP asked me to make this rice with it. I'm hoping the rain holds off long enough for us to grill the steaks.
Monday - Panera's Stove Top Mac and Cheese, ham steaks and Roasted Asparagus with Pecorino and Lemon: This looks like a quick and easy version of my favorite mac and cheese recipe. I'm going to pan-fry the ham steaks for added color and flavor and to make the mac and cheese more of a side dish. The asparagus SP bought at the store looks fantastic.
Tuesday - Hoagies after exercise
Wednesday - BBQ Chicken Ranch Salads: We have a late appointment so these salads will be easy to throw together before we have to head out the door.
Thursday - Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry over rice: I can't wait to make this meal again. This time I'm adding water chestnuts for that extra crunch.
Friday - Lemon-Garlic Spaghetti with Mascarpone and Shrimp: I've had my eye on this since Josie posted it. I can't wait to try it!
