Weekly Menu 8/4 - 8//9


I have a problem. 

It's kinda serious. 


I think I'm addicted to baking. And cooking, but mostly baking. 

Last weekend I spent a few hours in the kitchen making a bunch of freezer meals that we could easily make during the week. This weekend, there was a plan to go over my mom's house yesterday and hang out by the pool. Except, it started raining and my kitchen held me hostage. 

Knowing that I'd be spending today at my mom's and that coming home after a day at the pool leaves me generally useless, I decided I would get everything done yesterday. Except everything kind of snowballed. 

Here is what I made:
  • another loaf of blueberry beer bread for Tom to take to work 
  • banana blueberry oat muffins for breakfast this week
  • ricotta gnocchi and vodka cream sauce for dinner later this week
  • homemade pretzel rolls for dinner that night 
  • coconut chocolate bars
  • pineapple cupcakes with coconut-cream cheese frosting
I wanted to make sorbet, but I found that the freezer is full. That's going to need to wait until next weekend. I also wanted to make potato gnocchi because we have a few potatoes left, but again, there is no room in the freezer for them. 

This is kind of ridiculous. But the even more surprising part is I got the majority of everything made within an hour. The bread, muffins, bars and cupcakes all shared oven space. The vodka cream sauce was simmering away on the stove while I was rolling out the gnocchi and the pretzel rolls were rising while the coconut-cream cheese frosting was being made then piped onto the cupcakes. 

I don't even have a good reason for making all of this stuff other than it looked tasty. Tom sure is going to have a lot of things to bring into work this week...

But speaking of this week, the reason why you are all here, the menu:

Saturday - Bacon Ranch Chicken Burgers with Fries

Sunday - picking up something on the way home 

Monday - Ricotta Gnocchi with Vodka Cream Sauce

Tuesday - Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken over Rice with Corn

Wednesday - Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa

Thursday - Pineapple Ginger Flank Steak with Stir Fry Veggies and Rice

Friday - Nachos

The banana blueberry oat muffins mentioned above are for breakfast and turkey and cheddar sandwiches are for lunch. 

Since the pretzel rolls take time to make, I opted to make dinner last night and just pick up something today.
