Menu Monday

Here's what I've got cooking this weekend....

I've been gone for work for a while, so I think KB is glad to have actual food and not be living off of pot pies and pizza rolls.

Mon: Quinoa, Veggie and Feta Stuffed Peppers

I really like stuffed peppers, but they always taste weird when you use green peppers, so I bought some red and yellow ones. When I was unloading the groceries I realized that I still had 2 big bags of green peppers left over from random recipes a few weeks ago. We're going to be eating lots of peppers this week...

Tues: Nieman Marcus Chicken Salad

This is probably about the closest I'll be to a Nieman Marcus anytime soon! I really like chicken salad with grapes in it, but I hardly ever make it. It's going to be like a baby shower or wedding reception up in here!

Wed: Stuffed Pepper Soup

Still on the "use up all of the peppers" kick, we're having stuffed peppers again, but in soup form. I'm going to sub out some ground turkey instead of ground beef and also throw in some red and yellow peppers. I'm also going to use brown rice instead of white.

Thurs: Deer Steak with Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms

It's Valentine's Day on Thursday and KB loves meat and deer and chocolate and all things manly. These mushrooms look like they would be especially delicious. I'm just going to marinate the deer in some spice mix that I got a few months ago. I made it that way a few weeks ago and it was really good.

Extras!: Because Valentine's Day is a good excuse to eat chocolate, I'm going to make this little guy that looks really good (but also really easy).

Granny's Chocolate Cobbler (not my Granny...someone else's)

What will you be cooking up this week???


  1. i like how you specified 'not my granny's'. i have grammers chocolate pound cake recipe which i would like someone to make for me on valentines day. oh, but wait, i'll be in hickory for the nc cattlemens assoc conference. i'm pissed about that just a little. ugh.

    stop being gone for so long. although i can't say much. i am feeling like i will definitely be making a comeback next month.

  2. Yum. Looks like a good week. I have not done a meal plan this week. We have had so much going on. Chaos is ruling our eating and it isn't good. I like those mushrooms. I have made them a few times.

  3. I love that chicken salad! Whenever I am buy a NM I always get it (too many times) definitely going to have to make it this week! xx

  4. ooh deer steak where do you buy that? looks like you have a great menu lined up this week! im sure your man will appreciate having these great meals this week

  5. A pot pie actually sounds pretty good right now. Ha!

  6. oh yum!! your menus looks and sounds delicious. we had peppers and spicy sausage tonight.. the little kids said it was too spicy!
