Weekly Menu 7/28 - 8/2

/

I know, I know, it's much later than usual for me to be sharing the menu with you. It's not because I forgot you this week or anything, it's because I wasn't positive what the menu was going to be.

I decided to try my hand out at freezer meals this weekend (which I promptly forgot to photograph) and I've pretty much been in the kitchen non-stop since Saturday morning. Because I wasn't sure if I was going to run out of freezer space, I left the menu pretty flexible for this week.

I didn't end up finalizing it until late this morning. I could have shared it with you then, but we opted to head on over to the county fair. Where I was disappointed to find that the culinary competition foods were not on display. I wanted to check it out and see what my competition would be like if I chose to enter next year.

We grabbed some lunch, wandered through the tents which were not full of crafts. I don't understand what happened to crafts at fairs. Are they really just not that popular anymore? Then we wandered through the animal stalls and got to meet a zebra striped chicken. See:



And then there was this guy. I really just don't even know what to say about him.


He had tufts on his head, mid-section and feet. Kinda like if you pictured a chicken wearing a tutu with a fluffy tiara and legwarmers.

If you don't care about chickens, here's what we eating this week:

Sunday - shrimp bruschetta, homemade pizza rolls, baked mozzarella sticks 

Monday - chicken cheesesteaks and fries

Tuesday - steak with caper sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans

Wednesday - spicy grilled chicken with creamy garlic pasta 

Thursday - chili 

Friday - eggs benedict casserole

I didn't get a chance to make the casserole last week.

For breakfast I'm trying out a cinnamon-sugar coated wrap, stuffed with bananas, strawberries and peanut butter. Lunch will be around round of caprese salad.

For desserts this week, I'm going a bit peach-crazy with crumb bars and ice cream. And then there will be special cupcakes that I'm sharing with you on Wednesday.

If you're curious about my freezer haul, I made the following:

Chicken 

  • herb marinated: olive oil, white wine, parsley, basil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper
  • mojito marinated: mojito mix, mint leaves, salt and pepper 
  • BBQ marinated: bottled BBQ sauce
  • fajita marinated: paprika, cumin, cayenne, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper
  • honey-sesame: honey, onions, soy sauce, ketchip, olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes
  • stuffed: fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, spinach 

Pork:

  • garlic-herb crusted 
  • mexican pork and sweet potato stew
Beef:
  • teriyaki burgers
  • Old bay burgers
  • chili 
  • pineapple-ginger flank steak

Once I make these, I'll share the recipes with you.

Hope you had a lovely weekend!
