This week I have 2 new recipe's I am giving a whirl and I am pretty excited about them.
Sunday: Sausage and Polenta Pies (New recipe)
|Via Better Homes and Gardens|
Monday: Pork Loin Stir Fry
I happen to have these pork loin chops in the freezer that I portioned when we bought them - so I can just thaw what we need.
I usually just dig around for veggies in the fridge - and land on onion, bell pepper, and carrots. This week I grabbed a little bag of snow peas at the market to add some variety.
For the sauce I whisk up rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce or sirachi, and honey. If you have any ginger you can throw that in as well.
Here is a really old post about throwing that together Here.
Tuesday: Spicy Bean and Rice Burritos (New Recipe)
Usually Lee is all "Where is the meat?" This time, though, he agreed to try it.
Wednesday: Stuffed Shells
I made these a few weeks or so ago and everyone really really enjoyed them. I use low fat ricotta and lean or low fat pork sausage to give it a healthier edge. Serve with a salad and you have a winner.
Thursday: I have a cooking class at Sur La Table so Lee is either having leftovers (if there are any) or a good ole ham sandwich.
How about you? Do you menu plan or just wing it?
