Meals for Jan 16-22, 2011

This week’s meals: a couple more from The Food Matters Cook Book…and a few other things from around the web. Finish it off with a couple old favorites.

  1. Teriyaki noodles with asparagus and chicken (TFMCB).
  2. Chipotle quinoa with corn and black beans (and a bit of steak) (TFMCB)
  3. Sweet and sour pork–something we made last week reminded the kids about this and they’ve been asking for it. Adding a bag of stir fry veggies to bump up the veggie content.
  4. Sausage and spinach quiche.
  5. Homemade pizza
  6. Grilled sausages with broccoli on the side.
  7. Sweet Potato and Gruyere turnovers: the Sept 2010 issue of Real Simple scaled this up for a meal swap. We make it and freeze. You get four amazingly delicious meals ready to throw in the oven and eat–freezer to table in 45 minutes! A bit expensive with all the Swiss chard and gruyere, but SO worth it! We make our own whole wheat pie crust: for 8 crusts (yes it’s a lot, but remember this makes 4 meals!): mix 4 cups white flour, 4 cups whole wheat flour, 1-2 tsp salt. Cut in 1 cup butter and 1 1/3 cup vegetable shortening. Add about 1 1/2 cups ice cold water with a bit of lemon and mix.  You will probably need another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water to get the right consistency.
