Weekly Menu 9/23 - 9/27

It's a late post for me this week. For the past 5 months or so I've been up by at least 7 am every day on the weekend. This morning, I woke up at 5:30 to feed the cats and realized I had a slight headache. I decided that working out could wait and promptly went back to sleep until 9:30 AM. It was glorious.

Mother Nature hasn't figured out what season it is yet. Officially, it is fall but the temperatures aren't necessarily in line with that statement. Last week and the week before, we had some unseasonably cold days for what was still considered summer. Then yesterday it was in the low 80's. And today it's not even going to hit 70.

Which has made menu planning a bit difficult. I don't want a cold dish on a cold day and I don't want a hot dish on a hot day. So for the next couple of weeks or however long it takes for Mother Nature to get her temperatures in order with her seasons, the meal selected for each day will definitely be left up to the weather.

Sunday - Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Shrimp and Garlic Toast

Monday - Chicken Enchiladas

Tuesday - Roasted Chile Verde with Pork and Rice

Wednesday - Sesame Crusted Beef with Pineapple Mango Salsa and Sugar Snap Peas

Thursday - Asian Marinated Chicken with Corn and Basil Faux-Fried Rice

Last week I didn't end up making the brown butter sugar cookies. I hope I get a chance to make them today, but we'll see.

For lunches I plan on having the enchiladas from Monday sans the chicken and for breakfast I'm having an egg, Canadian bacon and Swiss cheese on a honey wheat English muffin.
