  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 10/29/2012

    It was way too hot this weekend (over 90 degrees!), so I am definitely looking forward to the cool down we should be getting this week. I’m much more likely to bake and grill when it’s cool – although I did make this fun spiderweb brownie cake last week, using fair trade Dutch process cocoa. It’s a Cooking Light recipe, so not too unhealthy, and the boys had a blast helping me frost the cake. Here’s what I’m thinking for this week’s dinners:

    Monday – Easy Sole Meuniere, Potato Gratin, Steamed Asparagus

    Tuesday – Roast Chicken with Garlic Sauce, Flatbread, some kind of veggie (didn’t get to this last week)

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Greek-Style Skewers

    Friday – Clam Chowder, Bread Bowls

    Saturday – {not sure of our plans yet}

    Sunday – Dinner out
