Weekly Meal Plan- Week of Feb18/Feb24

So how did you all spend Valentine’s day? Ours was pretty special as this year we also celebrated part of it with our daughter. We took her out on a date with the Smurfs ;). Here she is enjoying her time watching her first play!

Yesterday, I was supposed to post the Sunday Roundup but as I was finishing up, the Internet connection decided to stop working. I couldn’t upload more pictures, I couldn’t save the last version… Frustrating! I was thinking of posting a double “edition” next week but if time is on my side, I can publish it tonight. Sunday Roundup, a day late!

Last week’s menu went pretty much as planned except for a few shuffling here and there. I had couscous but not with roasted vegetables. My hubby couldn’t come for lunch that day so I steamed some green beans and thawed a couple handfuls of chickpeas and black beans I had in my fridge, added red bell pepper, a green onion and mixed with the couscous and the harissa-like dressing. It came out delish! It’s at times like these that I really appreciate my freezer!!

Remember all the cooked beets and the dinner salads? Well, my baby girl pretty enjoyed them too. See for yourself!

So for this week, we’re having;

Monday: Pasta with chicken, sun- dried tomatoes and pesto. I have some leftover basil pesto that needs to be used this week so I’ll just add it to whole wheat penne, grilled chicken breast and chopped up sun-dried tomatoes. A side green salad. Et voila! Lunch is served.

Tuesday: Asian salmon with nutty bulgur and steamed broccoli or I might be trying a salmon en papillote recipe.

Wednesday: Mujaddara or lentil and rice pilaf. This is the ultimate Lebanese Lenten dish. Many families even have it almost every Friday throughout the year. We will have it with a cabbage and tomato salad.

Thursday: Lunch out

Friday:  Spaghetti squash with a vegetable red sauce ragout or ratatouille. This is my first time cooking spaghetti squash and I will be improvising the dish. I will let you know how it turns out.

Saturday: Adzuki bean chili with roasted tofu ( this one got transferred from last week as we had lunch out)

Sunday: Steak with roasted or steamed veggies and sweet potato oven fries.

Dinner salad ideas:

Valencian Salad

Endive, Pear and Blue cheese salad

Greek salad

Leaving you with a picture of a red rose I took from my husband’s Valentine’s bouquet. I loved seeing it bloom that way!

Sending you all the love! May you have an excellent week.
