Menu Planning (Week 3)

Happy Monday! I'm posting my plan on Monday due to other scheduled posts, but started hopefully started cooking on Sunday with a nice pot of chili. Last week I did pretty well on the menu making a chicken brown rice bake, ribs using this spice rub, black bean and rice burritos, turkey and spinach lasagna, and spaghetti and meatballs. Instead of the pumpkin chocolate bars I had planned, I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins which were fantastic. I also made seven baking mixes which are stored in the freezer for quick use--well, there are only five left now as I made muffins earlier this week and just took a batch of yummy chocolate-cranberry scones out of the oven. They are a huge timeaver I can keep in the habit of making them. I made dry mixes for banana muffins, scones, pancakes, and biscuits.

This week we'll be eating out on Thursday evening and possibly another night, so I'm planning dishes which can be frozen. Here's the menu, in no particular order:

Main Dishes

1. Eggplant Parmesan

2. Garden Minestrone Soup

3. Crock Pot Shredded Beef Chili

4. Flank steak with creamed spinach and roasted parmesan potatoes.

5. Eggplant Bolognese

6. Butternut Squash Stuffed with Cauliflower & Cranberry Couscous

Other Goodies

Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
