Weekly Menus: Week of 2/5/2012

Gentle Readers, it is that time of year again when thoughts turn to snacks and beer. A few thoughts about what to serve that will be both practical and delicious:

1. Nachos. They are always a hit.

Veggie Nachos Perfected! With pickled jalepeno on top, for good measure.

2. Chili and baked potatoes. Had this recently, and was struck with how tasty the combo is. Go crazy, and you can do Twice-Baked Potatoes in advance, and make some Veggie Chili to go beside or on top of.

Thankful for Twice-Baked Potatoes

3. Pigs in a Blanket. Another classic, and so easy it is truly obnoxious.

So here is my gameplan for the week, Weekly Menus (in other breaking news, I have new notepaper, I know, an exciting life I lead):

Weekly Menus: 2/5/2012

Which translates to:

Sunday: Indian
Probably dal, rice, and green veg.

Monday: Tortellini and Salad
This will be the butternut squash variety, I may do it as a soup.

Tuesday: Tuna Melts
Can’t beat the classic.

Wednesday: Tacos
Always a crowd pleaser!

Thursday: Leftover Delight
Assuming I’ll have leftover Indian, otherwise, I’ll repurpose the leftover taco stuff.

Friday: Supper Salad!
As above, I’ll combine leftovers. Perhaps Tuna salad on greens, maybe taco salad.

Saturday: Dine Out
