Weekly Menu - 5/4-5/9/08

We had a really hard time coming up with a menu this week for some reason. It seems like some weeks we know exactly what we want & others its like pulling teeth to come up with 5 meals. So, we sat down with the last two Bon App├ętits & picked a few new recipes to try. Let's hope they're good!

Here's the Menu Planning Monday!

Grilled Pork Sausage with Beans & Beet Chips - This is the sausage we made the Foodie Joust awhile back & still have in the fridge. The beet chips are from a recipe I saw on Diary of a Foodie the other day (I love beet chips so am excited to try my own.) - RESULT - The beet chips went soggy before we even finished dinner. I need to work on this one.

Grilled Asian Flank Steak with Sweet Slaw - From Bon Appetit June '08 - Really good & really fast to make. Would be good on a warm evening.

Butter Chicken Curry - An easy dinner made from one of our favorite premade sauces.

Roast Chicken Breasts with Garbanzo Beans, Tomatoes & Paprika - From Bon Appetit May '08 - RESULT - This dish was fantastic! We love the flavors of smoked paprika & cumin.

Farfalle with Chicken, Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese - From Bon Appetit June '08 - RESULT - Really good, almost like a spinach salad with pasta.

This week's cupcake will be Strawberry with a Balsamic Caramel filling, at least that's I'm thinking.... - RESULT - ok the caramel part didn't work out but the Strawberry Balsamic Cupcake is tasty!
