This week I just don't feel like cooking!
(Do you ever feel like that?)
Yes, all week! But my family needs to eat (I guess I do too), so I will cook.
It's going to be an easy week though, cause we have a few birthday celebrations (hubby and our nephew).
I'm still cooking from stockpile and trying to empty the freezer. I am getting there, I can almost see the bottom of freezer with two weeks to go.
Here's what we're eating:
( I know I'm a day late)
01 - 17 - pasta and home made beefy tomatoe sauce from freezer - (*read below)
01 - 18 - Chicken Paprikash, rice, green salad (will make chicken broth for the freezer and rest of week's meals with carcass)
01 - 19 - Italian Wedding soup, garlic bread
01 - 20 - Beef Enchiladas (and I'm making my own enchilada sauce from this recipe)
01 - 21 - leftovers for kids and I (hubby is out at a hockey game)
01 - 22 - Hubby's b'day celebration - he wants steaks and steaks he shall get. :-)
01 - 23 - Big breakfast and late lunch at sister's house for nephew's first b'day celebration.
* While cooking the pasta for the dinner on 01-17, I accidently dumped the entire box of pasta (remember the free ones) in the pot. Ugggh. I didn't have enough sauce for the entire box, so I decided to make pasta salad with the extra pasta which will be great for quick lunches for hubby and I.
I just added a bunch of leftovers from the fridge and it turned out great.
Here's what I dumped in there:
About 2 cups of cooked pasta
1/2 cup of halved grape tomatoes
1/2 cup of chopped brocolli
Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
a bunch slices of roast beef from Sunday dinner
salad dressing (1/4 red wine vinegar, 1/3 olive oil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp honey and 1/2 tsp dijon mustard. 1 tsp garlic powder) I used enough to coat the pasta, the res will be for green salad dressing
salt and pepper
