First Full FamMenu for 2012!!! :0)
Well, can you believe it is 2012 already? Seems like just yesterday we were on the cusp of Y2K! Wow, we lived in a one bedroom house and only had ONE child back then- and now she is almost a teenager and has four tagalong siblings, crazy! Here's to a blessed new year!
Ok, so cooking for the fam may prove to be a tad challenging this week, as my bake element in my oven bit the dust last week...Sooo until that is fixed, no baking or roasting for this chick! (BOO!) Perhaps if I see this as a challenge, it will be FUN!!! So here it is, the FamMenu:
Monday: Eating a LUN-DIN "picnic" of sorts at my parents' house while watching MSU- Jamie Oliver's "A Cracking Burger" -thank you to my friend Michelle for sharing this with me over a year ago!-(Simply the best burger- great made with venison, too!)
and some baked beans, veggies with Penzey's ranch, fruit
Tuesday: Hubs wants pasta, so here is what he gets- Fettucini Toldo- grilled chicken breasts, chunks of spiral ham, sauteed mushrooms, lots of parm, asiago & romano cheese all swirled together with some homemade pasta! foccacia or Italian bread (not homemade :o( dumb oven) Italian style spinach-sauteed with garlic, crushed red pepper, tomatoes & olive oil
Wednesday: Split Green & Yellow Pea soup- with lots of carrots, potatoes, onions and ham- some delish rolls and homemade applesauce
Thursday: Local Steelhead with Chermoula- a delish fresh herb cocoction made with cilantro, parsley, garlic, saffron and a few other things that make it delish! Mashed redskins with buttermilk, a tasty veggie of some sort!
Friday: BBQ Chicken pizza-grilled because my dumb oven is broke!
Saturday: Pork Carnitas- a delish mexican concoction similar to tacos but WAY tastier! Here is a great recipe from a fun blogger:
Makes the house smell YUMMMMY!
Sunday: Balsamic glazed steaks with creamy asiago polenta, sauteed mushrooms and onions, salad, fresh fruit
Enjoy this blizzardy week with your Fam!
