Menu Plan Monday: Week of April 4th

I haven’t posted a menu in a while, but I’m trying (as usual) to get back on track. Here’s this week’s game plan:

Monday:  Ultimate Salad from Big Al’s (Miss H pointed out that this is not actually on the menu on Big Al’s website but  it contains the following: spinach, avocado, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, turkey, hard-boiled egg, red cabbage, carrots, black beans, onions, jalapeno, sprouts, cheese, and some delicious secret spices — Awesome sauce); Baked Basa Fish Fillet w/ homemade mango salsa (mango, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, & lime juice), asparagus & sautéed spinach

Tuesday: Potato Supreme*, Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff w/ egg noodles — I haven’t made this before but I got some stew meat from the co-op this week and wanted to use it in a non-stew way so I cruised several recipes online to find something that would work. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

Wednesday:  Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff, Basa Fish Tacos w/ Mango Salsa

Thursday:  Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff, Potato Supreme

Friday: Crock Pot Beef Strog, Appetizers with the girls pre-KOL Concert! Woot woot!

* I grew up on Potato Supremes.  Apparently some restaurant in Tulsa used to serve them and my parents decided to incorporate them into our family dining repertoire thirty some odd years ago. Basically, a Potato Supreme is a baked potato topped with whatever you want/have. I usually go with ham or turkey, lettuce (must be iceberg for this, but I have no idea why), cottage cheese, tomatoes, onions, black beans, salsa and/or salad dressing.  Essentially it’s a salad on top of a baked potato — easy, filling, relatively healthy depending on your topping choices!

I meant to post this picture last week (I think) of a dinner I made.  I think there is something so satisfying about eating a really colorful meal and this one definitely hit the spot!

Baked salmon on a bed of sautéed spinach & bell peppers served with steamed broccoli and Mediterranean curry flavored couscous!

 

Looking forward to many colorful meals this spring — the Cherry Street Farmers Market opens this Saturday, April 9th at 7:00 a.m. Do yourself a favor and go early. And have a breakfast burrito — they are divine.  Actually, do me a favor and sleep in so I can get the best produce picks of the week!
