Weekly Meal Plan #3

Week #2 went pretty much as planned, except that I traded our Thursday (meatballs) for Saturday (leftovers) because we had a frozen pizza in the refrigerator and that was much easier to make on Thursday when I didn't feel like cooking. Yay.

This week ends with Easter. I love Easter. Easter eggs, ham, peeps, pastel colors, bow-ties and dresses... but mostly I love the amazing and awesome resurrection of Christ.
  • Monday: Take-out leftovers from yesterday
  • Tuesday: "Bangers & Mash"-- saw a recipe for this in the latest Everyday Food
  • Wednesday: (HG Night) Chili & Cornbread (Leftover from Week #2-- I always make double for chili and freeze some!)
  • Thursday: Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard, Broccoli Rabe and Rice
  • Friday: (Good Friday) Beef Barley Vegetable Stew
  • Saturday: Jeff's parents in town-- we'll probably eat out.
  • Sunday: Easter dinner! Honeybaked Ham and Turkey, Lemony-garlicky green beans, Dinner rolls, Balsamic Onions... YUM!

Balsamic onions:
Cut up some red onions into thick-ish rounds and drizzle & coat with olive oil. Put in a single layer on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Broil until they're lightly charred, about 4-5 minutes. Flip and brush with balsamic vinegar (about 2 T.) Broil for 5 more minutes. Serve with chopped parsley.
They're a good accent to a meal; kind of like a white person's version of kimchee or ginger. :)
Miss you Sunny!
