Menu Plan Monday- March 22, 2010

Last week was rather successful and reminded me that I feel way less stressed out when I have some idea of what dinner will entail.

I skipped on the Sauerkraut Tarts because we didn't have leftovers of what I expected we would. I've saved it to try again down the line.

I made some slight changes to the Bierock Casserole. I made them in individual triangle casserole dishes, precooked the bottom "crust," and seasoned the hamburger with some garlic and onion powder. I thought they were fab and Martijn loved them too. We're considering doing some sort of study to see if things just taste better in triangles, but I do think the recipe had something to do with it too.

The ham was nice but it didn't really caramelize like the recipe indicated. I'll probably try it again with less orange juice.

This week:

BBQ Nachos- This is my FNCCC recipe for this week. Watch for the recipe on Wednesday!

Cauliflower Cheese Pot Pies- I got two giant heads of cauliflower for cheap this weekend and this looked tasty.

Spicy Veg Fajitas- Again I can use my cauliflower, plus some of my giant stash of chickpeas.

Beefy Noodles- Maggi Mix thingie

Shoarma in Pitas- Back-up pantry/freezer meal incase something goes awry!

Not sure if things taste better in triangles. I think they always taste better in chocolate sauce. But, hey, that's just me!

Different shapes always work for me- it's a break from the norm :) I've been thinking I'll do better eating wise if I plan EVERYTHING I eat day by day- I wonder how much work that will be? :)

ugh. I'm so tired of cooking. And I usually end up having to make three different dinners because I have two picky little boys. Maybe I should try giving them some triangles!

Did you use your cool Pyrex triangles for the Bierock??? I still love saying that. :o)
