Monday Menu Planning


Do you like to try new foods? I enjoy adding new items to my menu on a regular basis. My new item is....drum roll.....hummus! I was severely addicted from my first bite last week, and am adding it into our meal rotation. Where has hummus been all my life - I can't believe I've never tried it. The two flavored kinds that I've tried so far, roasted pepper and roasted garlic, are sooooo good. Miss M and Iron Chef love it too, so it's a hit with the whole family.

I'd love more ideas on what to eat hummus with. So far, we have done hummus with wheat crackers, baby carrots, and sandwiches. Really any excuse to eat the stuff is good!

Here's our menu for this week.

Monday
Lunch - Greek Wraps or Burgers
Dinner - Broiled Greek Shrimp

Tuesday
Lunch - Strawberry Spinach Salad
Dinner - Bleu Cheese Steak

Wednesday
Lunch - Cucumber, Tomato and Hummus sandwiches on whole wheat
Dinner - Szechwan Chicken

Thursday
Lunch -Black Bean Couscous Salad
Dinner - Herbed Roasted Flounder

Friday
Lunch - Egg Salad and Cucumber sandwiches on whole wheat
Dinner - Chicken Chili

What are you serving on your family table this week?

Yum!! (I don't think I've ever tried huumus, though. Perhaps I need to give it a try!)
