My manly, meaty menu for the week.
If I had ANY idea of how to make a good matzo ball soup I’d do it. But I don’t. Can never go wrong with a latkes though … hmm. Maybe I’ll add those in. I’ll keep you posted. Hah! Get it???? Posted!
MONDAY – Chili, Whole Wheat Toast, Big ole salad with Red Leaf Lettuce, Cucumbers, Red Onions, Feta Cheese and Balsamic Dressing
Looks like this could be the last good night for Chili! Temps up to 21 celsius (70 fahrenheit) by the end of the week! Yay! Good-bye chili, hello fresh asparagus! Otherwise known as Good-bye smelly pants, hello smelly pee. Don’t worry, 40% of people get asparagus pee.
TUESDAY – Teriyaki Chicken Shishkebabs (chicken breast, red peppers, pineapple, red onion), Brown Rice, Spring Rolls
Kay, um, it took me about 10 years to find a Teriyaki recipe I really like. Now that I’ve found it I make a huge batch and freeze it and just cut off a chunk as needed. Again … as mentioned in a previous post, the Spring Rolls are store bought. Because making your own is just stupid.
WEDNESDAY – Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry with Brown Rice.
Yeah, real men eat stir fry. OH … YES THEY DO!
THURSDAY – Cheap n’ Chic Meatballs. (this is basically sweet & sour meatballs with red peppers, carrots and onions served on rice), Strawberry Spinach Salad. Haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I trust her judgement. And her tastebuds. 🙂
They also like strawberry/spinach salad by the way. It makes them feel dainty. 🙂
FRIDAY – Festival of Meat! Big Meat, Sausages and Chicken on the barbecue.
*** note: Astute reader Anj has pointed out that those who observe no meat on Good Friday may not be able to partake in the Festival of Meat. For those readers, I offer you what I believe to be an equally outstanding substitute – “The Festival of Beets”.
Big Meat is actually a hunk of tenderloin. It isn’t in keeping with The Festival of Meat tradition, but I’m going to have to insist on some type of brightly coloured vegetable for this meal.
SATURDAY – Huff n’ Puff Pizza (bbq pizza) and Baby Greens salad with home grown alfalafa sprouts and toasted pumpkin seeds.
SUNDAY – Easter Dinner at someone’s house. We haven’t quite figured that out yet.
My niece traditionally has Easter dinner but her husband recently succeeded in getting their hometown of Dundas, Ontario into CBC’s top 5 Hockeyville towns. The grand prize is a $100,000 makeover for the local town hockey rink. Go Dundas!! On Easter Weekend my niece and her husband will be showing the CBC/Kraft execs around town and that doesn’t leave any time for setting tables and stuffing apples in pigs snouts. I’d rather have turkey anyway.
