I'm in a rut. I'm admittedly in a rut! A rut of the same old tired meals week after week.
Last week I tried to change things up a bit by introducing lasagna in the mix using some leftover spaghetti sauce I had in the freezer. It was actually a frugal undertaking as I had all of the ingredients already at home. It was delicious but I was not impressed. I need more oomph!
So bear with me as I dig through my tired brain for new ideas for meals. I don't really have anything in mind yet but I'm on the lookout.
I was able to pass on one of recipes to my sister who injected her family's weekly menu with a taste of Asia. They're really enjoying my Soy Free Asian Style Meatballs, a recipe I revamped from one in an earlier Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
I've included my recipe below in case you're interested and here's a tip. Do saute the veggies before mixing into the meat and if you use a shredder or a mandoline things go much faster. I'm soy free so I use Coconut Aminos but you can use soy-sauce too. Taste your sauce and customize it to your own tastes.
Monday: Salmon Quiche: I'm making salmon quiche this week from leftover salmon we have in the freezer. I cooked a whole salmon several weeks ago and de-boned and parceled the leftovers in portions specifically for salmon quiche.
Tuesday: Flank steak and Potato Fondants:
Wednesday: Pork Chops: I haven't decided what to do with these yet. My husband made some porkchops a few weeks ago and they were delicious. I think I'll ask him what he did.
Thursday: Skillet Mac: You know the old tried and true recipe of meatsauce with peppers, onions, and pasta in a skillet.
Friday: Turkey Quesadillas: We have a LOT of turkey in freezer from Thanksgiving time. Turkey Quesadillas is one way I use the surplus.
Well that's it for my menu this week. What are you having?
