Weekly Dinner Menu {11/11-11/16}

Weekly Dinner Menu

Hola, readers! I’m pretty excited about this week. Not only does my dinner menu look amazing {to me, at least}, but I’m also doing my November giveaway this week, and more DIY Christmas crafts! Whoo hoo!

Enough chitter-chatter, on to the menu!

Monday {11/11} – Tuna Patties with Salad {Homemade Lemon Vinaigrette}

Tuesday {11/12} – Roasted Chicken with Cheese Quinoa & Broccoli Patties

Wednesday {11/13} – Tortilla Soup with Sweet {and healthy} Cornbread

Thursday {11/14} – Leftover Tortilla Soup

Friday {11/15} – Easy Pad Thai

Saturday {11/16} – Out-to-eat {or stay in sushi night}

If you can’t tell, I’m craving bright flavors like lemon, lime, and cilantro right now. I think it’s the fact that winter will set in soon and I will say “goodbye” to those flavors until spring time rolls around, oh, in about 2 months for us here in Arizona..haha.

Have a great Monday!

Weekly Dinner Menu

Monday {10/28} – Perfect Roast Chicken with Garlic-Butternut Squash Mash & Homemade Green Beans

Saturday {11/2} – In-laws in town, probably out-to-eat!

Sunday {11/3} – Sandwiches!

I’m getting better at this whole leftover-usage-of meat thing.  It really helps when you buy strictly organic meat, since it’s pretty pricy, so if you’re wondering how to eat good meat on a budget, then try buying huge pieces of meat and using them in different dishes!

So, I got my first Bountiful Basket this past weekend {if you don’t know what Bountiful Baskets are, check them out HERE}.  I was pretty pleased with the selection of fruits and vegetables, including a pie pumpkin and persimmons! I think it will definitely be a weekly thing for this family, especially since I received roughly 20 pieces of organic produce, not including the bag of apples and strawberries, all for only $25!

Come back tomorrow for a delicious breakfast recipe & don’t forget to enter my current giveaway {ends 11/1}.  My Grandfather makes homemade goat’s milk soap and I’m giving away 4 bars from his Etsy shop, MilkNMore.
