Menu Plan Week of February 6th

We are in the midst of a busy weekend and a busy week ahead!  I am hoping to include a post this week featuring some of the meatless meals we have been enjoying lately.  In the meantime, enjoy this week's menu!

As a special treat this week, I think I am going to give the chocolate brownie batter dessert hummus recipe a try.  Check it out!  It is healthier than you may think based on the name of the recipe!

I am also going to make the crispy treats featured on this site (January 24th post) - great for lunch boxes, a pre or post workout snack or as a special after dinner treat for your kiddos! (I'll use a new find, Enjoy Life flex puffs, in place of crispy rice cereal).

Monday:  Baked chicken breasts with Saffron, Zucchini and Herb Couscous and roasted broccoli

Tuesday:  Baked Oatmeal

Wednesday:  Quinoa Casserole (slow cooker!) no almonds, no cheese, add garbanzo beans; salad

Thursday:  Italian Sausage Ragu served over Polenta (instead of pasta)
TIP:  Prepare pan of polenta and the sauce the night before.  Cut polenta into large squares and quickly pan fry to warm up before eating (while warming up the sauce).  If you are dairy free or would like a quicker ragu, just mix browned sausage with a jar of organic pasta sauce.

Friday:  Leftovers

Saturday: Out

Sunday:  Turkey Burgers with sweet mustard sauce and a veggie side
