Menu Monday

Here's what the Browns will be eating this week....

Mon: Chef Salad with Low Calorie Homemade Ranch Dressing

We have some romaine and red leaf lettuce leftover from last week, so I thought a nice chef's salad would be good.  I'm also interested in trying out a new homemade ranch dressing recipe.  It uses Greek yogurt and milk so I'm thinking it will be delicious and wonderful.

Tues: Ham, Pineapple and Cheddar Quiche

I really like ham and pineapple together.  KB hates ham and pineapple together and will never eat Hawaiian pizza.  I'm hoping I can persuade him to like this since it's full of cheese and eggs.  I'm not sure so I'll succeed, but at least I'll like it!

Wed: Huevos Rancheros

Me amo comida Mexicana.  Huevos rancheros are so easy and are delicious.  I could eat them every day.  I try not to repeat recipes, but I made this once before and it was so good that I just wanted to make it again. Instead of re-fried beans I normally just puree black beans with some salsa.

Thurs: French Onion Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I've been really into grilled cheeses recently and this one looks amazing.  I love french onion soup and this looks like a good combo.  I couldn't find the cheese that the recipe calls for in the podunk grocery store, but I'm hoping asiago and mozzarella will work.

Bonus!: No Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I made these yesterday and they were super easy and delicious.  I added in some shredded coconut and wheat germ.  It looks like it would be really easy to add in whatever you'd like.

What will you be eating this week???


  1. That salad looks so good. I am definitely going to have to make it this week. I made that ham, pineapple and cheddar quiche last week and LOVED it - the boy was not a fan though lol. xo

  2. never would have thought of that combo for a quiche but it sounds delicious! also french onion grilled cheese - yum!

  3. i love a good quiche and maybe i should try huevos rancheros at least once. looks like a delicious week in your household
