Weekly Menu 3/7 - 3/12/11

We are settling in for another week of snow here in Minnesota. (Yeah, Mr. Groundhog, what was that about an early spring?) Luckily, we seem to have gotten our desire to cook back so, we have a week full of interesting meals planned to make at home.
Blueberry Crumb Cake
I started off this Saturday morning by making this NY Crumb Cake from Bon Appetite. I changed the recipe just a little bit by substituting the sour cream with yogurt & adding a cup of frozen blueberries to the batter. Really is there anything better than the smell of cinnamon baked goods in the morning? The recipe was really good but ours took almost 10 minutes longer to bake through than the recipe called for (probably because of the yogurt substitute) & next time I'd make about half the crumb. Then Matt dreamed up a tasty & super simple Chili Verde Hotdish for Saturday night which we'll be sharing with you tomorrow. I'm looking forward to a week of good food even if we are stuck inside again watching the snow.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Citrus & Spice Brined Pork Roast with Honey Spiced Sweet Potatoes

White Bean & Sausage Soup

There's nothing more comforting to me than to see a lofty crumbly coffee cake, and yes I agree with you about cinnamon in the morning, it's the best way to start the day!

That crumb cake looks so mouth-watering. It is perfect. And I have to agree with you, there is nothing better than the smell of cinnamon baked goods in the morning. That and coffee. And those burgers look so yummy. Definitely going to try them.

As much as I wanted to make that NY style cake....I couldn't bring myself to using 3.5 sticks of butter!!! Yikes!
But save me a piece, cause I know it tastes so good!
