Menu Monday


I can't believe it has taken me all day to get this menu up. For some reason my goal to eat a more whole grain, plant based diet is making meal planning a little tricky. With my parents coming this week, I want the meals to be nice. My Dad loves a nice ham dinner, so I included that for Sunday dinner.


Monday--green smoothie and leftovers


Tuesday--Tuscan Lentil soup, honey whole wheat bread, sliced fresh oranges


Wednesday--Crispy Southwestern Wraps with fresh guacamole, crisp apple wedges


Thursday--vegetarian Tiki Masala (with cauliflower)over brown basmati rice, fresh pineapple


Friday--Treat my parents to some good ole Southern BBQ @BONES


Saturday-- Favorite Minestroni Soup and simple avocado -tomato-spinach-pesto Paninis


Sunday--Pinapple Glazed Ham, Leek and Potato Au Gratin, Spinach salad with pomegranate and pine nuts, and glazed chinese green beans



I have linked to my recipe blog for any of the recipes that are already posted. The other recipes I will post if they are worthy, because we only post the best on Sisterscafe :)

A little bbq suggestion...have u tried Rib & Loin on Brainerd Rd yet? Their sauce is awesome (you can buy it there too) and I think it's better than Bones.

Oh, thank you so much! I am really going to try out your menu this week. I am trying to get in a better dinner routine. We had the wraps from your website before and loved them!

Cool Mel! What is funny is that we are eating similiar stuff as you this week! I made the Ribollitta last night...and I plan on Tuscan Lentil soup later in the week. Also I have the wraps on the menu this week too!! I'm so excited to see what you have planned for dinners from now on...it will be inspiring! I can't wait to hear more about the au gratin leek and potatoe... wow, yum!

I love that you said you would only post the other recipes if they were 'worthy' - so cool! :) Love you sis! Have a GREAT time with Mom and Dad! I just realized, reading your post, that they are in TN now and that is why they weren't answering their phones tonight. You are a lucky gal! :)

Oh I love this. I hope that you will continue to post menus throughout the year. I have really enjoyed Sisterscafe and Kevin especially loves it when I frequent your cooking blog. By the way, I would LOVE a good recipe for guacamole. I know you probably just "throw it together" but mine has never turned out well.
