    Monday Menu: November 9

    Snow has fallen this week so I’m looking for belly warming foods and meals that remind me of the tropics or the beach.  Here’s my Monday Menu for this week.  Beef Stroganoff – One of our favorites and so versatile.  Ground meat or beef strips, condensed soup, sour cream or Greek yogurt, whatever you have on hand.  Pineapple Chicken – Sweet and zesty and great for the slow cooker.  Pour over ginger or jasmine rice for extra flavor.  East Coast Fish Cakes – Dip in tartar sauce or on their own, and add some steamed veggies or coleslaw on the side.

    Monday Menu: November 2

    Another week is starting and you’re looking for some quick and healthy ideas for busy evenings. Here is my Monday Menu for this week with some flavorful, healthy meals.
