Meal Planning: Week of December 16

Wow! The weeks are flying by. It just seems like I sat down to write last weeks meal plan. Sheesh!

One of the meals from last week that was noteworthy was the polenta pizza.

Polenta Pizza -

Really good. Ron actually tackled the job of preparing it. He made three options – cheeseless, less cheese, and more cheese(of course that was for him). I’m sure my mom is laughing at me right now for saying something with polenta was really good. I absolutely refused to eat polenta growing up. My Italian grandmother always made that as part of her big Sunday meal. If I’d only knew then what I know now…I missed out on a lot of good things!

I’m loving easy meals lately. If it takes more than an hour, requires lots of chopping and more than 2 dishes, I’m not doing it. Here’s what the week is looking like at our house:

Sunday: Veggie Stuffed Peppers w/ chickpeas

Monday: Butternut Squash Ravioli with roasted veggies

Tuesday: Roasted Cauliflower Pizzette w/ Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

Wednesday: After work party for Mama. Ron and the kids get leftovers!

Thursday: Spinach Gratin w/ Crunchy Crumb Topping

Friday: Black Bean and Spinach Quesadilla

Saturday: Leftovers

I’m linking up with Laura and Jill for another week of Meal Planning!

As you sit down for dinner this week with your family, say an extra prayer of thanks for everyone in your life. Give an extra long squeeze to your kids, spouse, other family members, friends. The tragedy in Connecticut weighs heavy on my heart. I have no words.

What are you having for dinner this week?

  1. Your polenta pizza looks better than mine did… way to go Ron! I also made a few short cuts and turned it into more of a baked polenta with veggies and cheese to save time.

    Oh, I hear you on the heavy heart. I was feeling better yesterday and then made the mistake of reading the updated news report in the WSJ last night and all the emotions came flooding back. Just awful.

  2. The pizza looked good but, unlike you, I still haven’t moved past a childhood dislike of polenta. And, I better get on the meal planning or else we will end up eating junk! Maybe soup every day – it is easy!!!

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
