What’s Cookin’ Week of September 9th

By : | 0 Comments | On : September 7, 2013 | Category : Menu Of The Week

As I write this post, I am getting super excited for my weekend trip to NYC for my sister-in-laws baby shower.  But, the bonus part is that I am surprising Ava with a trip to NYC.  She has NO idea.  I am just going to pretend to take her to school on Friday and take her to the airport.  She is going to be so surprised.

I have not been inspired by any themes recently but this week I will have a NYC theme with places we will go!!  

Meatless Monday:  Meatless Meatloaf served with broccoli and oven baked Sweet Potato fries from Alexia (frozen)

This recipe will be a total experiment. I have a feeling already that there will be ketchup served on the side of this masterpiece but I am going to try it anyways. Prep time is 60 minutes so I hope that I at least like it! To save time, I will not make my own sweet potato fries. I know this would be too aggressive for me on time during a week night.

Statue of Liberty Tuesday: Fritatta with Broccoli, Goat Cheese, and Sun-dried tomatoes (on half) served with a side of fruit

We have not had breakfast for dinner and quit some time so the kids will enjoy this tons.

American Girl Doll Wednesday:  Super Salmon served with french style green beans and couscous mixed with peas and parmesan

Dylan’s Thursday:  Slow Cooker Sesame Beef over Brown Rice and sugar snap peas

Thanks to Kristen at SlenderKitchen for a wonderful recipe and photo sharing.

I never got to this one last week because we had too many leftovers that needed to be eaten so I froze the beef!   I will make my second attempt this week.

Madeline’s Friday, Saturday:  NYC Baby!!!  Dad is in charge.  I know that even if I make something, he will do his own thing — and it most likely will not me my approval!

Central Park Sunday:  Out to dinner.  Ava and I will have just gotten home so I will most likely not even have time to go grocery shopping.  🙂
