I haven't been very good at keeping up the blog lately. I usually at least post on Meatless Monday, but this week, our monday menu was just left-overs and it didn't seem like anything to blog about!!
I'm a member of The Food Network on facebook and each week on Friday they post the same question : What are you cooking this weekend? I look forward to reading the 'hundreds' of answers, and sometimes wonder if people just write something to impress, because it doesn't seem like some of the answers are very reasonable! But, this week was different. The posts were all very down-to-earth recipes and I get ideas for the weeks' menu by reading them.
On Friday we always plan our next week's menu and grocery list. This weekend we have a wedding to go to on Saturday so I probably won't be cooking that day. On Sunday I'm making paella!!! I'm so excited, because I haven't had a pan to cook it in for a few years after I had to get rid of the old one. I now have a nice big pan to make it in! It's one of my FAVORITE recipes. I'll take pictures and post them after the weekend and share the recipe I have.
I'm also making 6-week muffins. You know the ones. They make a huge batch and you bake a dozen and put the remaining batter in the fridge where it keeps for 6 weeks! They are so delicious and you can have fresh warm muffins when you want them! I make some in my large muffins pans for a breakfast treat, and also some in my mini muffin pans for tea and coffee breaks.
What are we eating this week? Meatless Monday: zucchini casserole. The rest of the week: cipotle beans, spanish rice, homemade tortillas (we have this almost weekly), mushroom barley soup, and the ever abundant asparagus. I'm getting some prosciuitto to wrap the asparagus in before grilling them. Since we have so much right now, I'm also going to do a creamed asparagus to eat over baked potatoes with lots of chive clippings from the beautiful chives in my herb pot.
WHAT ARE YOU COOKING THIS WEEKEND???
