As I am writing this on Sunday evening, I have the last of my international menu recipes simmering (North African Meatballs). It smells delicious! This coming week doesn’t have a theme although I do have a special meal planned for Tuesday – Mardi Gras. Let’s take a look…
I never did end up making lasagna last week. I’ll do a simplified version in the skillet.
- skillet lasagna
- garlic toast
Today is Mardi Gras and so this only seems fitting:
- potato salad
- French bread
- bread pudding
Today is Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. We’ll be going to the Ash Wednesday service at church so this will be a good day for a one-pot slow cooker meal.
- vegetable soup in the crock pot
- toasted French bread
- fresh corn on the cob
- Cauliflower, leek and cheese gratin
I’m going to try to do fish or vegetarian meals on Fridays throughout Lent.
- sweet and spicy shrimp (I’ll share the recipe at some point.)
- cheesy grits
- steamed broccoli
At the time I’m making this menu it looks like it will be fairly warm Saturday. Sounds like a good day to grill.
- grilled cheeseburgers
- French fries
- fresh fruit salad
You know the drill…Mexican food after church and save half for dinner.
What’s cooking at your house this week? Do you observe Lent? If so, do you do meatless or fish meals on Fridays? I’d love to see some of your favorite fish recipes. Leave me a comment!
Do you want to eat a healthy, organic, grass fed diet but don’t think you can afford it? My friend, Victoria of A Modern Homestead, explains how they do it on less than $200 a month. Click here to find out how:
I’m loving my Instant Pot. If you decide to purchase one, I’d be forever grateful if you’d use my affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you a penny more but I receive a small portion of the purchase price from Amazon. Thank you for supporting Life With Dee!
