On the menu: getting hooked

Mindful Menus

Last week's cooking ahead experiment was a huge success! Sunday afternoon I made a plan, organized my ingredients, went to work...and then cleaned up the giant mess I made. During the week, I had minimal meal prep - and less cleanup, as well! I think I'm hooked.

So, on the menu for this week...

Monday: Quinoa casserole (trying a new recipe with quinoa, carrots, onions, mushrooms, corn, black beans and vegetable broth)
(Perfectly Poetical) Tuesday: Cilantro chicken with rice and fruit salad
Wednesday: Rodeo stew
Thursday: White Bean and Tuna Panzanella with veggies
Friday: most likely heading to an Ignite Phoenix viewing party and eating there.

Friday evening I made vegetable broth, the quinoa casserole and the sauce for the cilantro chicken. I had already made (and froze) a couple batches of rodeo stew as part of last week's cooking frenzy. Thursday's panzanella is really simple to throw together.

And, just like that, we're ready for the week.
