Menu Time: May 6th - 10th, 2013

New feature for the blog, well heck just posting is a new feature but let's not go down that road. I'll start/resume posting the menu for the week. My method for making up a menu is pretty simple. I take a quick glance at the fridge, freezer and pantry and get some things in mind that should be used up first. Then i'll take a glance at the ads for the local grocers and see what on sale can compliment what we already have in the house. We try to eat seasonally as much as possible which helps avoid burnout of the same thing over and over as well. Hope you enjoy the first week's go at it.

Monday - Beef stew with drop biscuit topping

We're starting the week off by using up some leftovers. We had beef stew last week and have just enough to throw the leftovers into a baking dish and top it off with some drop biscuits.

Tuesday - Pizza night

You can find my dough recipe here but this week I might try Alton Brown's recipe again, just remember it takes a day in the fridge so start early.

Wednesday - Sautéed chicken breasts with butter sauce, green beans, cous cous

It's not really as complicated as it sounds. I swear.

Thursday - Baked sweet potate with black beans and quinoa.

I'm gonna cheat and use canned black beans, probably cook the quinoa earlier in the week too.

Friday - Rice noodles with beef and snow peas

I've been using this method for pretty much any noodle dish lately since it's infinitely adaptable and stupid simple.
