Weekly Menu - Week of April 22, 2012
The weather has been crazy lately. We started this past week in the high 80s, with Monday topping out close to 90 degrees. Then the temp dropped drastically and by Wednesday we were freezing. I considered turning the heat on but held out and now we're back in the mid-70s. But Sunday is going to be in the high 50s. Sheesh!
This weather makes meal planning difficult. My stomach is squarely in spring/summer food mode, but the weather is telling me to make some cold weather comfort foods while I still have the chance. This week's menu is a smattering of different seasons.
Sunday - Corn Chowder with Lime and Avocado, potstickers: Katie posted this soup on her weekly menu last week and then I saw it when I was looking through my recipes trying to make a meal plan. Seeing it twice just made me want it even more, plus I've got two avocados in the fridge that need to be eaten. I'm keeping it simple with store-bought potstickers.
Monday - Greek Pork Loin with Mediterranean Couscous: Melissa posted this meal awhile ago and I've been lusting after it ever since. I'm trying to clean out the freezer and I've got a bunch of pork loin that needs to be cooked. I've also got Israeli couscous in the pantry, exactly enough to make this recipe. Score!
Tuesday - Hoagies
Wednesday - Greek Chicken Burgers with Tzatziki, frozen fries: A friend posted this Weight Watchers recipe recently and it sounds delicious. I'm going to make some modifications but try to keep it healthy.
Thursday - Pizza Paninis, sautéed zucchini: I have a work meeting in the afternoon so I need something simple that will be easy to get on the table when I get home. I also bought some pepperoni at the store this week that needs to be eaten.
Friday - OUT!
