Dinner Menu for the week of January 5th

It is 2014.  This is my year.  Pretty sure I say that every year, but I do have big plans.  Personally, spiritually, and also in business.  Looking forward to getting my plans down on paper/blog and then mapping out activities to reach my goals.

Last week, I was so eagerly anticipating the crab cakes, but they had to be moved to this week due to some scheduling issues that prevented me from having time to shell the crab.  Tomorrow…

My favorites from the week were the pot pie and the meatballs.  These are both go-to meals, and each time I make them, I remember why they continue to land on my menus.  I had a slight issue with the pot pie this time around because I let the pie crust get too warm before rolling it onto the top. Here are pictures of the yummy filling, and the top-crust FAIL.

Another fail this week was that I did not get to make stock out of my chicken carcass.  I stripped the whole chicken that I cooked in the crock pot for the pot pie, and left everything in the pot to make overnight stock.  Forgot to turn the darn thing on when i went to bed!  It crushed me to have to toss it into the compost in the morning.

This week, we plan to cook up this yumminess:

Sunday:  Take two on crab cakes.  Also planning on cooking a LARGE pot of Chili for the freezer.  I modify this chili recipe quite a bit.  I leave out the sugar, bacon bits, hotsauce, corn chips and beef boulion.  I use one whole beer.  Honestly, this turns out AMAZING.

Monday:  Chili cooked on Sunday.

Tuesday: Chicken cobb salad with egg, avocado, bacon and cheese.  (Can you say chicken stock redemption this week?!?)

Wednesday:  Chipotle Chicken potato skins.  (Sweet potatoes for me and boys, and russet for Dave)

Thursday: Grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato bisque

Friday: Beef pot roast

Saturday:  Spinach, cheese and bacon omelettes

Have I mentioned that I am excited about 2014?!?!

Happy and healthy eating this week friends!
