The Meal Planner

Last week's "Ode to Chinese New Year" while delicious, was a very streamlined, one track plan. In lieu of last week, I made sure to diversify my menu this time around. While I am always quite conscious of eating internationally, I went even further out of my way to capture the flavors this great world has to offer.

Day 1: Best Lasagna with Garlic Bread
I made and froze this in December when I was stockpiling for the baber.

Day 2: Moroccan Beef Stew with Almonds over Couscous with Lemon-Carrot Salad
I'm trying my hand at some Moroccan flavors...I've never been a big fan of this regions cuisine, but I think I've got a recipe to cure my picky palate.

Day 3: Bistro Burgers with Bacon and Creamy Honey-Dijon Sauce with Veggies and Dip
A way to dress up mundane dinner fare.

Day 4: Thai-Inspired Meatballs with Coconut-Peanut Sauce over Rice Noodles with Stir-Fried Veggies
Eating lighter and healthier from the cookbook Eat, Shrink and Be Merry.

Day 5: Chicken Oreganato with Rosemary Sea Salt Roasted Potatoes and Salad
A friend emailed me this chicken recipe and said it was her favorite. I'm excited to try it.

    I've tried those Thai meatballs from Eat, Shrink & Be Merry & they are divine!! Can't wait to hear what you think.

  2. I was already excited about them, but now I'm even more so! Thanks for the heads up. Have you tried anything else from that cookbook that you really liked? I just got it for Christmas and this will be the first recipe that I will be trying.

    I don't have the recipe book but my best friend does & she makes delicious recipes out of it all of the time. It's a good one, for sure:)
