Dinner Bell: Menu Ideas week of Feb 9


I don’t know how much help these menu ideas really are: sometime the challenge is in fleshing out a meal into something balanced, or adapting it to your particular tastes. More often, for me anyway, the real challenge is the starting point. And the shopping point.  If I have an entree (or one dish wonder) in mind, then it isn’t so bad to grab some pantry items or leftovers to balance things out. So I’m just putting the first ding in the dinner bell, suggesting an entree…I’ll leave it to you and your fridge and cupboards to figure out the rest. Good luck!

Monday – Shepherd’s pie

Tuesday – salisbury steak , blackberry crumble for dessert (fruit! Antioxidants! deliciousness!)

Wednesday – Cauliflower bake (meatless)

Thursday – Enchilada soup (I’ll get the recipe to you when I finish tweeking it)

Friday – baked pollock and confetti rice (if it’s friday, it must be fish. I do it for the omega 3s, year round, not religious reasons – but am looking forward to fish fry season just the same. Yum!)
