Valentine's Week Menu Plan

Hello everyone! I hope that all of you are doing fine on these late winter days. At least the sun is staying up longer! And it is getting stronger. I can tell because the snow is melting and it is only 18 degrees (says the computer).

Well, the kids have been sick. I'm feeling very needed. And hopefully that won't end up with me feeling very needy. I mean I've only had someone cough in my face about 5 times in the past few days and I've only cleaned up throw up twice. Really, I think my immune system should be able to kick whatever is thrown at me. Really.

So what have eating?

On Sunday, I made us a very, very yummy meal. My parents had just delivered our Christmas present - a freezer full of meat! So we had organic, grass fed beef New York strip steaks, with a basic, creamy risotto (only a total of 10 minutes in the pressure cooker!), and green beans with almonds. Now, let me tell you a way to kick your steaks up a notch. I did not marinade them but I did rub them with Worcestershire sauce, pepper, kosher salt and garlic powder. Then I put them under the broiler. Yum! To finish them off, and this is the key part, I sprinkled blue cheese on them and set them back under the broiler. Yum!!! Try it, you will not be disappointed.

Monday: Clean out the fridge :)

Tuesday: Seafood Enchiladas, Black Beans, & Chips with Homemade Salsa. The seafood enchiladas are from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Luke loved them, he wrote me a note during the meal that said " You look beautiful and you made a great dinner." Ahhhh :)

Wednesday: Ritz Chicken (a.k.a - poppy seed chicken) I make mine entirely from scratch - no cans of soup. We'll have a green salad with it.

Thursday: Chicken Parmesan & Salad

Friday: Split Pea Soup with Biscuits (requested by by my dear husband). I laugh at the fact that I make and actually enjoy split pea soup now. I remember HATING it as a child. Oh, how we all change.

Have a great week!
