Alright I didn’t end up making Burbon Beef Noodle Bowl Saturday…  I roasted a whole chicken and served it with some veggie sides.  Sunday I turned the chicken [carcass] into a broth that I used for Chicken and Dumplings.

Monday: Shrimp and Crab Cakes with creole remolulade sauce and salad

Tuesday: Falafels with veggies and hummus for lunch; Dinner will be mac and cheese for the kids and lentil soup for me

Wednesday: Fish Fajitas with beans and rice for lunch; quiche or breakfast for dinner

Thursday: Chicken Carbonara pasta for dinner and lentil soup for me [Cuisine at Home Pasta special edition]

Friday: Newburg Pot Pie or Turkey Soup with Stuffing Dumpling [both recipes courtesy of Cuisine at Home]

Saturday: Burbon Beef Noodle Bowl

Sunday: (Dan is working day shift from now on…) Cuban flank steak with lime and orange juice, cuban beans, avocado, and salad for dinner

Menu Planning

Just a day late but catching up 🙂


Monday: We had chicken and cauliflower curry served over brown rice

Tuesday: Dan is working tonight so kids will have mac and cheese with broccoli and carrot sticks and I will have a little leftover curry.

Wednesday:  Lunch with Dan: Tacos; Dinner will probably be quesadillas for the boys and taco salad for me.

Thursday: Falafels with hummus- recipe from Cuisine at Home magazine Feb ’09 issue with mashed cauliflower.

Friday: [We’re getting a Costco membership card to buy fish] Fish- probably wild Salmon with an Orange-Ginger Sauce inspired by my favorite cooking magazine: Cuisine at Home, homemade cranberry sauce, and green salad.  This is lunch as Dan is working this night and I’ll take leftover fish, cranberry and salad to put into tacos.

Saturday: Thinking of making Bourbon Beef Noodle Bowl [with maple, sweet potatoes, and spinach] from [can you guess?!!!] Cuisine at Home

Prime Rib

January 14, 2009 at 1:11 am (Meat)

Finally catching up with my food blogging- First: I made an awesome Prime Rib for Christmas Day dinner:


This is 6lbs of the 13 lbs we ordered.  Then I turned the bones and carcass into a fabulous Beef, Mushroom and Barley Soup [my first time making barley soup].  I got myself a cookbook for Christmas to help me with cooking Prime Rib and other steaks…

Morton’s Steak Bible which is great!  I made the Au Jus sauce in the cookbook- a little pricey but a little goes a long way and has been making its way on the Prime Rib, steaks made from the other 7lbs, barley soup, etc
