This Week's Menu {Jan 31}

I'm super happy to say that last week was the first in which we followed our plan to the letter. We ate all our leftovers, so nothing went to waste. And we didn't eat out at all, save for the one day a week that we each had lunch out at work. Go us! Here's the plan for this week:

Monday - Pulled Beef Sandwiches with Roasted Cauliflower and Asparagus
Tuesday - Tuna Casserole
Wednesday - Crunchy Taco Hamburger Helper (jazzed up with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and black olives)
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Minestrone Soup
Saturday - Chinese Chicken Salad

The Minestone Soup is a new one I'm trying out. I got the recipe from Williams-Sonoma's "The Cookbook for Kids", which, embarrasingly enough, I bought for myself. What can I say? I'm cooking-challenged and figured a kids' cookbook was the best way to make sure the recipes were simple enough for me to make. I'll let you know how it goes...

I've also got to come up with something to make with all the blueberries I've got chilling in my freezer.

My grocery store was running a hot sale of 99 cents per pack, so I snagged a bunch and froze them on baking sheets (to keep them from sticking together) and then put them in ziploc bags. We've already used some for blueberry pancakes and plan to try smoothies with a handful or so more, but could use ideas for recipes that will use up the rest.

Any suggestions?

You could just give them to me and I'll eat them! I love frozen blueberries.
They're good on top of oatmeal and in vanilla yogurt too.

Today's dinner sounds good!!

I have a big bag of blueberries in my freezer too! I buy strawberries and blueberries in the summer when they are cheap. Then I mix both kinds of frozen berries in the blender with milk and homemade yogurt for the best smoothies all year long.

Yay for sticking to your menu all week! Sorry, I have nothing for how to use the blueberries, except maybe in muffins, if you like those. I like the idea of making smoothies with them too.
