Menu Plan for the Week


This is a little belated, I realize, but -- we just got back from camping in the Willamette National Forest right alongside the McKenzie River! It was fantastic and gorgeous and I promise to post photos and recipes of our camp food soon.

For now, here's what we're eating around Casa Dena this week:

  • Monday: Black Beans & Rice (made such yummy lunch leftovers today!)
  • Tuesday: Pan-seared filets mignon in some kind of pan sauce that I have yet to decide upon with roasted young potatoes and sauteed garlic spears. (The filet mignon was on a serious special at the market -- it was too good to pass up! Garlic spears are immature garlic scapes, or stems, and are apparently delicious. We'll see!)
  • Wednesday: Tamale Pie (I have yet to figure out exactly what this will be, too -- I'm kinda making it up as I go along. All I know for now is it will have a polenta base, black beans as the filling/protein, lots of gooey cheese, some enchilada sauce.... basically some messy yummy casserole type thingy.)
  • Thursday: The undeniable and delicious Sesame-Soy Soba Noodles. Hubby has requested them every week for the foreseeable future, and I am in complete agreement.
  • Friday: Not sure yet....perhaps some grilled chicken, greens from our garden plot (which I definitely need to post photos of!), and grilled toast with garlic rub for little summer sandwiches?
  • Saturday: Date night!
Apparently it's Improv Week here at our house. What about you? Any good ideas for summer meals?

  1. yum! it's been unseasonably warm in the bay area, and i've been doing big, simple composed salads for dinner all week--basically green salads, but with other blanched or roasted vegs and a little protein. and YES, you have to post camping food and garden plot pix!
