2013 Week 1

Wowza! The first post of 2013 (even though it's not technically 2013 yet...).  
I'm proud that I stuck to my resolution last year and planned our dinners nearly every week.  It's definitely a habit now and I find our whole week becomes very unorganized if I don't have things planned out on Sunday.  

Here's how we're ending 2012 and beginning 2013:
Sunday - Scott and I will be at the Broncos game (go donkeys), so the kids and sitter are having pizza.
Monday - New Years Eve dinner of spinach and artichoke cheese fondue with lots of veggies and bread for dipping.  Maybe this for dessert!
Tuesday - We always have hoppin' johns on New Years Day, I made these last year and they were fabulous.  Making it again this year.  We usually have our hoppin' johns with Virginia ham and biscuits.
Wednesday - Corn and potato chowder with fresh bread.
Thursday - Leftovers!
Friday - Easy pasta dinner
Saturday - Chili and cornbread

2012 Week 52

I cannot believe how quickly this week, month, year has gone by.
It's so hard this time of year to stop and appreciate all that we have,
 but I'm really going to try to do just that.

Sunday - breakfast for dinner!
Monday - a Christmas Eve dinner with my family, veggie lasagna will be the veg main dish
Tuesday - a simple Christmas dinner with just the four of us. Stuffed pork chops for Scott, cheesy polenta and mushrooms, broccolini, homemade rolls and little chocolate lava cakes for dessert.
Wednesday - leftovers
Thursday - cheese and chili tamales 
Friday - leftovers again, or something easy like spaghetti.
Saturday - dinner with friends

Happy holidays!

2012 Week 51

We are home from our amazing vacation and now thrust back into the real world.
I can't believe how much can change in the world in a week, 
and how strange it feels to be out of it for so long.
Christmas is coming and we have a ton to do to be ready, lots of fun things, but our focus is renewed and we are going to spend time enjoying the feelings of the holiday, not the rush.

For dinners this week:
Sunday - pizza after the longest set of flights ever.
Monday - Chili and cornbread
Tuesday - We are decorating our tree tonight, so I'm making homemade spaghetti sauce with a big salad and cookies for decorating after.
Wednesday - Corn and potato chowder and fresh bread.
Thursday - Taco night!
Friday - Swim team holiday party, I need to come up with a yummy dish to bring.
Saturday - My best friend's birthday party, pizza and a sitter for the kids!

Have a great week!

See you next week.

2012 Week 49

How it can be December and 60ยบ+ in Colorado is beyond me.
This certainly wasn't happening when I was growing up here.
But these sunsets were, and never fail to impress.

Our week is mellow, but we leave Saturday for a big family vacation so there's a lot to get done.
Sunday - Leftovers or dinner out with friends.
Monday - Kitchen sink quesadillas, trying to use up items in the veggie drawer!
Tuesday - Grilled fish and an orzo dish on the side.
Wednesday - Meatballs and mashed potatoes for the family while I'm coaching.
Thursday - Kids choice, no clue yet, but I'm sure they will come up with something good!
Friday - Probably pizza or eating out while packing frantically. 
Saturday - Vacation time! Dinner on the plane, and lots of packed snacks.

2012 Week 48

Well, our Thanksgiving feast was a success!  The veggie dishes were amazing and Scott made his best turkey yet (on the grill!).  I'll be sure to save those tasty dishes for next year.
Here is H and my cute little niece in their matching turkey shirts!

Now it's back to the grind...
Sunday - Scott's making turkey noodle soup for himself, the kids, and his parents.
Monday - Dinner out/at a friend's house as we juggle kids, coaching, and taking Scott's parents to the airport.
Tuesday - Dinner frittata with whatever veggies and cheese is left from last week.
Wednesday - Chili and corn chowder with fresh bread and a green veggie.
Thursday - Green noodles and milk (L chose this one).
Friday - Tofu and veggie stir fry.
Saturday - I have my swim team's first meet, so Scott and the kids are on their own, probably pizza!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

2012 Week 47

Such a fun and busy week is ahead of us.  We have family coming into town, Scott's birthday and Thanksgiving all rolled into 7 short days!

Here's our dinner plan for the week...
Sunday -  Birthday Parties galore for L, which means Scott and H are eating leftovers!
Monday - Mummy dogs or veggie fried rice.  It's up to Scott, he's cooking!
Tuesday - In-laws arrive in time for dinner.  I'm doing a crockpot veg lasagna that will be ready whenever they get in. With fresh bread and a green salad on the side.
Wednesday - Scott's birthday and his sister and her family arrive.  The Birthday Boy has requested grilled steaks.  I'm thinking a yummy salad and a light fish too.
Thursday - Turkey Day! Check out our plan for dinner here.
Friday - My sister and her family are coming up to have dinner with everyone.  I'm thinking a big easy spaghetti dinner with meat sauce and veg sauce, lots of noodles, a fresh green salad and garlic bread.
Saturday - Dinner out with Scott's parents

Happy, happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Veggie Thanksgiving Dinner Plan

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and it's time to really get down to planning dinner!  We're pretty traditional over here.  This year we have family coming to our house, so Scott is cooking a turkey and my mom is making the veggie main dish.  I get on a little bit of a high horse during the holidays and refuse to just eat sides for dinner!

Here is our plan for Thanksgiving Dinner:
Turkey Veggie Tray
Apple, Brie, and Honey Brushetta

Sweet potato & Arugula Salad
Mushroom & Veg Dressing
Mashed Potatoes
Chopped Brussel Sprout Salad
Dinner Rolls
Cranberry Relish
Veggie Shepard's Pie

Carmel Apple Pie
Pumpkin Pie

Most of the recipes are on my Turkey Day Pinterest Page

2012 Week 46

I cannot fathom that next week is Thanksgiving.  
There's still dinner to plan, crafts to make, table decorations to buy and set up.
Whew!  An exhausting list for sure.
Obviously we'd rather just relax!

Dinners this week are easy, we're saving all of the 'real' cooking for next week!
Sunday - Veg French Onion Soup
Monday - Spaghetti 
Tuesday - Baked fish and potatoes with a green veggie
Wednesday - Black bean spinach enchiladas with red rice
Thursday - Farro risotto with beans and basil
Friday - Ladies night out for me (maybe a twilight movie, maybe not!) so I'll pick up a pizza for Scott and the kids.
Saturday - Birthday parties for the kids to go to and a CU game for Scott, dinner will be out.

Sunday, November 4, 2012

2012 Week 45

It is weird that I'm still obsessed with baking with pumpkin?  I've made pumpkin scones, cookies, muffins, bread and I still keep catching myself pinning new recipes to try.  Mmmmm, pumpkin!  
The latest find is a pumpkin swirl loaf with a chocolate filling.  It sounds so yummy.
What else should I try?  What am I missing from my pumpkin baking collection?

On another note, here's our dinner plan for the week.  It's an uneventful week except that four of the nights I am coaching, so our dinners are pretty simple.
Sunday - Grilled chicken and roasted squash for S and kids
Monday - Tofu and veggie stirfry with soba noodles
Tuesday - Grilled fish and veggies
Wednesday - Some sort of baked pasta dish, maybe stuffed shells again
Thursday - Taco night, maybe those great sweet potato and black bean chipotle tacos
Friday - Pizza for S and kids
Saturday - Dinner out with my sis and her family

Lastly, did you remember to reset your clocks?  What did you do with your extra hour (because if you have kids, I know you didn't sleep)!

2012 Week 44

Happy Halloween
From Yoda and a Little Owl!

Halloween in the middle of the week is a little strange.  Since parties were this weekend, it feels a little drawn out to still have three days until the day itself.  Even the kids are confused as to why we are going to dress up again!  It does give me three more days to make fun spooky lunches or dinners though!

Sunday - Football food for Scott and the kids while I coach.  Go Broncos!
Monday - Grilled cheese with homemade tomato soup.
Tuesday - Grilled fish with baked potatoes and greens.
Wednesday - Mummy dogs (the kids' favorites) and spooky veggie sides before trick or treating.  A special adult dinner after the kids are in bed, I'm thinking the Creamy Lobster Pappardelle in November's Cooking Light mag.
Thursday - A spicy tofu and noodle recipe from Sunset mag.
Friday - Baked penne with spinach and tomatoes
Saturday - CU home game today.  Early dinner out after the game with the family.

2012 Week 43

Little man attended a friend's birthday party last week at the climbing wall.  This shot is him at the peak of his climb, about 4 feet high.  And that's his face when I asked him to smile for a picture!  So cute. 

Sunday - Pizza for Scott and the kids while I'm at the pool
Monday - Roasted red pepper and basil penne pasta
Tuesday - Grilled cheese and tomato soup
Wednesday - One week to Halloween and we're excited.  Mummy dogs are on the menu tonight!
Thursday - Veg Tortilla Soup, making enough for our family and a friend.
Friday - Taco night.  Spicy black bean and sweet potato tacos for us, cheesy quesadillas for the kiddos
Saturday - Halloween party at a friend's house.  We're bringing Scott's famous veggie chili.

Sunday, October 14, 2012

2012 Week 42

Obviously I am going to have to run about 10 miles today because 
we are going to make homemade apple fritters this morning.  
For real.

Sunday - Fish tacos with grilled tilapia, guac, and refried beans
Monday - We have a boatload of eggs (thanks to my aunt and her chickens) and some veggies from our last CSA basket, so I'm thinking a frittata is perfect for tonight!
Tuesday - Stir-fry with udon noodles
Wednesday - Stuffed shells.  I like to use whatever we have on hand, and I'm thinking ricotta, basil, spinach and parm this time.
Thursday - Salmon with veggies
Friday - The kids and I have a pizza party at a friend's house and I'm bringing a veggie side.  I'm thinking of a Greek Quinoa Salad for a few veggie and protein to balance out the pizza!
Saturday - Homemade pizza.  I just saw a squash and gorgonzola pizza recipe that might be yummy for fall.

Pumpkin Scones

 It's certainly fall around here,
 and yesterday was our annual trip to the pumpkin patch

to load giant pumpkins into the car and pose for pictures.
As you can see, only one of my children was up for the challenge!

The afternoon had better weather for pumpkin picking, so we spent the morning inside and while the kids played with playdough, I decided to try one of the many pumpkin recipes I've pinned.  Pumpkin Scones.  Such a delightful fall treat with your coffee.


For the Scones:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons half-and-half
1 large egg
For the Spiced Glaze:
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 pinch ground cloves


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with fit the paddle attachment, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Add the butter and toss with a fork to coat with the flour mixture. Mix on medium-low speed until the texture resembles coarse cornmeal, with the butter pieces no larger than small peas.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half-and-half and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and form the dough into a ball. Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a 1-inch thick rectangle about 4 inches by 12 inches. Use a large knife to slice the dough making three equal portions. Cut each of the portions in an X pattern (four pieces) so you end up with 12 triangular slices of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.
While the scones are cooling, combine all of the ingredients for the spiced glaze. Drizzle over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving (about an hour).

Make Ahead Veg Meals

I have a dear friend with a foot injury who cannot walk or drive for another couple of weeks.  Her mom was here initially to help out, but had to leave yesterday, so a few of us are organizing dinners for the family.  I'm making a big batch of this delicious Tortilla Soup today (photo from the blog) and will bring half of it over to their house for tonight.  I'm also busy pinning more make ahead meals that travel well.

I think the key to bringing dinner to someone is making it as simple as possible for the recipient.  I try to always use disposable or recyclable containers so that no one has to make any effort to return anything.  I also try to bring something that can easily be eaten that night, or put in the freezer for another night.  On that note, I try to aim for meals that will please everyone.  No strong flavors that kids might not enjoy.  After all, you're trying to make life easier for someone and it's not easier if they still have to short order cook for their kids.  Lastly,  I try to provide a full balanced meal.  Either soup with all the fixings or a pasta dish with a salad and fresh bread.  If there are kids (or dessert lovers) I also put in a handful of freshly baked cookies or maybe muffins for the next morning.

Here is a list of my favorite meals to bring to a friend:
Portobello Lasagna Roll Ups
Corn and Potato Chowder
Any kind of baked pasta (this baked Ziti is my favorite)
A cold pasta salad (this one is really yummy!)

What are your favorites?

Sunday, September 2, 2012

2012 Week 36

Go Buffs!  Oh wait, we lost our first's going to be a long season of college football, isn't it?

Sunday - Scott's smokin' ribs.  He's promised me a veggie delight...I'm guessing that means black bean burgers.
Monday - Another Labor Day BBQ after enjoying an extra weekend day.
Tuesday - We have a boatload of eggplant from our own garden and the CSA.  So, I'm cruising Pinterest now for eggplant recipes.  Right now these Eggplant Arancini are looking pretty good.  I think the kids would even eat them.  Served with a green salad.
Wednesday - First night back to coaching for me so we need a make ahead dinner.  Since we're supposed to get arugula in the CSA, I'm thinking this pasta with arugula and white beans will be perfect!
Thursday - Left overs
Friday - Homemade pizza on the grill.
Saturday - Another CU game for Scott, so I'm thinking of a ladies and kids night fiesta! Quesadillas on the grill, guacamole and chips and lots of margs!

2012 Week 35

Monday - Green curry with CSA veggies and brown rice.

Birthday cake candles!

2012 Week 33

What?? Is this not how you wear your headband? :)

We have nothing especially fun going on this week, depending on who you ask.  L starts another year of preschool on Friday (so strange to start on a Friday), so it's our last week of "summer".  Both a joyous and sad event!

It's prime CSA veggie time right now and this week we are getting melon, onions, beets, cauliflower, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, green beans, peaches and plums.  We also have a boatload of peppers to use up (i over purchased a bit for fajitia night!).

Sunday - grilled salmon and steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and green beans
Monday - stir fry with loads of peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, onions and either tofu or veggie chicken strips
Tuesday - tomato mozzarella tart with a caesar salad
Wednesday - sweet potato avocado burgers
Thursday - dinner out, I want to try a new food truck turned restaurant near us.
Friday - pizza on the grill with homemade dough
Saturday - Pasta overload.  My first 1/2 marathon is the next day, so dinner will be yummy!

Have a great week!

Fried and Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

Oh yum!  I just went completely Iron Chef and made fried and stuffed zucchini blossoms for dinner.  I was a bit intimidated but they were so easy and turned out delicious.  I followed the instructions from our CSA's blog and stuffed them with a combination of ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and fresh basil.  I dredged the stuffed blossoms in egg, then Panko breadcrumbs and fried them in vegetable oil.
So, so delicious.  Go try it!  

Stuffed and Fried Zucchini Blossoms
1. Heat enough oil in a pan to cover at least half of a stuffed blossom
2. Remove the stamin from the blossom but leave the stem.
3. Make your stuffing and put a small tablespoon in each blossom and fold up the leaves around the stuffing.
4. Whisk up one egg and a small amount of water in a bowl and add some Panko breadcrumbs to another bowl.
5. Dip each stuffed blossom in the egg and then in the Panko and then carefully lay in the oil.  Depending on how big your pan is and how many you are making, you might want to do this in batches.
6. Cook 2-3 minutes and then carefully turn the blossom over to cook the other side.  Cook 1-2 minutes more.  
7. Carefully remove the blossoms and place on a paper towel covered plate.  Sprinkle with salt immediately. 
8. Eat them hot or at room temperature, we tried both and they were amazing!

These photos are from our CSA's blog, we ate our fried zucchini blossoms too quickly to take any photos!

2012 Week 29

On these super hot days, we find ourselves driving West in the hopes of finding some relief from the heat in the mountains.  This past week I took the kids to Tiny Town, near Conifer, in an effort to find cooler temps and something to do.  I cannot explain how much my kids love this little place.  It's full of tiny, little houses with big windows so you can peek in and see what the tiny people are doing.  The one in the pic above is the theater and H is looking in and telling me all the names of the characters who are seated inside.  So cute my little peeping toms are!  There is also a tiny (but rideable) train that takes you all around the town.  The kids loved it and L was asking when we could come back as soon as we were in the car!

This week is our last one in Denver before we all shuffle off to the Northwest to visit Scott's family.  I feel like summer will practically be over when we get back, so I want to get in a few last summer bucket list items this week with the kids.  Weird to feel like summer's almost over on July 15th!  I think this is where I would need to stop and remind myself to enjoy the moment.

Sunday - Grilled salmon and veggies, then off to our favorite Ice Cream joint to celebrate National Ice Cream Day!
Monday - CSA Monday!  We get our box of veggies today and I plan to make a version of this Farmer's Market Skillet but with farro (since we already have it!).
Tuesday - Foot truck night with friends.  I'm going to pack veggie, bean, and cheese quesadillas for the kiddos, then buy something yummy there for Scott and myself.
Wednesday - I'm having dinner out with friends, so I thought this super yummy tortellini salad for be the perfect make-a-head dinner for Scott and the kids.
Thursday - Taco Thursday! (I'm assigning all the days a personality now!) I'd like to make some easy fish tacos and some of these delicious chipotle black bean and sweet potato tacos with lots of guac.  Everyone loves guac!
Friday - Homemade pizza Friday.  I'm dying to try a fried egg pizza.  Something about the yummy yolk and the warm pizza dough sounds so strange and yummy.  I'm thinking about this one with pesto.
Saturday - Grilled fish and pesto potatoes.  With a fruit salad on the side.

So many good recipes this week! What are you all making?

Monday, July 9, 2012

2012 Week 28

I hope everyone survived last week with all the parties and BBQs that were had.  I'm not sure I'm fond of the 4th falling on a Wednesday, it was a weird week to say the least.  The kids were constantly asking, "Does Daddy work today?" They were totally confused about the holiday in the middle of the week too!  Anyway, I made some delish firework cookies and a cute flag fruit plate for a party. Both were fun to make with the kids.

This past week was also a big family week.  My mom's birthday was Saturday and my sister's was Sunday.  They had a huge party over the weekend and it was so fun to see all of our family and friends. My sister made some delish veg side dishes and I'll post those recipes soon.

Now, on to the week ahead, here's what we have planned for dinners...
Sunday - Whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce.  We usually add in veggie crumbles to the sauce.  Steamed broccoli and garlic bread on the side.
Monday - Going to try this again, we didn't get to it last week and still have the zucchini from our CSA
Tuesday - Fish tacos
Wednesday - Farmers market skillet, yum!
Thursday - Left overs
Friday - Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Picnic for Movie in the Park

Have a great week!
