Tag: Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup

Menu Plan Monday, 1/23 – 1/29

Did you catch my posts this week about the Scallion Turkey Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze and Peter Reinhart’s (Two-Day) Challah? They were both fantastic and worth a look.

My menu plans have been very simple lately, but that makes them easier to stick to! Lots of vegetable-based recipes this week.

Monday: Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup, Pumpkin Dinner Rolls (bumped from Sunday)

Tuesday: Spiced Lentils with Mushrooms and Greens, leftover Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup, leftover Pumpkin Dinner Rolls and challah rolls.

Wednesday: Beef meatballs in marinara sauce, spaghetti, Carrot Salad

Thursday: Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups, garden salad (I have got to find whole wheat lasagna noodles!)

Friday: Vegetarian Mushroom Barley Soup, Pull-Apart Challah Rolls, Cheesy Kale Crisps

Saturday: Out to dinner

Sunday: Out to dinner

Menu Plan Monday, 3/28 – 4/3

I have radishes on my mind this week, and I’m going to incorporate two salads into our meals this week that include them. I think they are a manifestation of my deep craving for our spring weather to come back. I spent a couple of hours outdoors in our village this morning, selling raffle tickets to support our library. I was frozen through by the end of my shift — I am done with these 29° F mornings!

Although I did not blog much about them, I did have a number of delicious, easy to make meals last week. Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups, made with whole wheat lasagna noodles, made both my boys happy and kicked off the week on a positive note. Chicken & Figs was declined by the boys, but my parents loved it and so did I. The Baked (Beef) Meatballs were homey and delicious. I doubled the recipe and froze half of the baked meatballs (without sauce) to use another time.

In addition to the meals below, I’m baking Mrs. Jones’ Macaroni & Cheese to deliver to a family in the community, and I think I’ll make steamed green beans and a batch of cookies to go along with it.

Monday: Sweet Sesame Cabbage & Radish Slaw, grilled skirt steak, whole wheat tortillas

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup, toasted bagels

Wednesday: Mediterranean Barley with Chickpeas and Arugula, Cucumber and Radish Salad with Feta Vinaigrette, pita bread

Thursday: Baked Ziti, garden salad, Italian bread

Friday: Roasted chicken, steamed green beans, challah

Saturday: Out to dinner

Sunday: J.’s firing up the smoker, and I’ve asked him to do a couple of chickens that I can freeze as well as dinner, Quinoa Salad with Artichokes & Parsley

Menu Plan Monday, 2/14 – 2/20

This week’s menu plan seems like a lot of food, doesn’t it? Regardless, I’ll forge ahead and freeze leftovers for a week when I need a cooking break.

I’m in charge of bringing in cupcakes for a 100th Day of School celebration, probably on Friday. I have an idea where I’d make the number “100” stand up on each cupcake out of a slice of a Hershey bar and two Hershey Kisses. I thought that would be a little different than writing “100” on each cupcake. I’m going to buy my materials tomorrow and test it out. Any other 100th Day treat suggestions? I’m all ears.

Monday: Vegetarian Mushroom Barley Soup, challah rolls, garden salad

Tuesday: Italian Lentil & Vegetable Stew, ciabatta rolls, sliced fresh mozzarella

Wednesday: Roasted chicken drumsticks, spaghetti squash with marinara sauce, roasted broccoli

Thursday: Eat out or leftovers

Friday: Smoked Beef Rib (from the freezer) tacos with lettuce, tomato, and cilantro; brown rice and salsa

Saturday: Chana Masala (Chickpea Curry), whole wheat pita

Sunday: Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup, Sunflower Whole Wheat Quick Bread
