Menu Plan Monday

I sure hope everyone had a great weekend and Valentines Day.  I had a great Valentines Day with all kinds of people that I love.  I was able to go to my aunt's house for a fun and delicious Valentines/Mardi Gras Party.  When I showed up my son opened the door with 2 daffodils for me (my mom took him over early).  It was the cutest thing in the world and made me smile from ear to ear.  He really knows how to make everyday special.  We came home later that evening to put my little man to sleep and I started cooking a simple, late dinner for my husband, who was on is way home from a photo shoot in Seattle.  I bought some fresh crab from Whole Foods and made a lemon garlic dipping sauce for it.  Then I roasted some potatoes and asparagus.  For dessert I made homemade lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  He came home with flowers in his hand and a huge warm hug & kiss.  I missed him!  The food & talk were great that night. 

I am ready for another week.  This week I am dedicated to planning my son's birthday party!  It is coming quickly!  As for recipes, we are trying just 2 new recipes but I am pretty sure they will be delicious!  The other recipes are some of our family favorites!  Please remember that we try our best to use ingredients that are organic, sustainable, and healthy.  We do this for our bodies, souls, animals, and the earth.

MONDAY- Sushi with a best friend and our kids!

TUESDAY- Blackened Salmon Sandwich (I leave out the mayo), steamed broccoli, and Cajun potatoes.  We chose this recipe in celebration of Mardi Gras.  Drew is cooking tonight because I am working late.  He will save me some leftovers! 

WEDNESDAY-  Homemade minestrone soup and a loaded spinach salad.

THURSDAY-  Green Pizza with homemade dough and a veggie salad.  (I made this pizza before and it is delicious...I highly recommend it!)

FRIDAY-  Veggie Fajitas

SATURDAY-  My mom's birthday dinner at my aunt's house.  I will be bringing something but I am not sure what it will be yet. 

SUNDAY-  Poached Halibut with Herbed Vinaigrette, steamed garlic asparagus, and whole wheat couscous.

  1. We made crab for our Valentines dinner too! The blackened salmon sandwiches sound tasty - I'll have to try that out this week.

  2. Poached halibut sounds simple and delicious!


I love to hear your love!
