Menu Plan Monday

I must admit, I haven't given a whole lot of thought into this weeks menu. I think I will end up browsing other menus for ideas. I'm battling a cold and so nothing really sounds that good...especially when you can't smell a thing! So I don't have any ideas for specific days. Tonight which is Monday, we are having Cabbage rolls, rice with veggies and foccacia bread (which I love and buy at Costco). Maybe this week I'll do some type of bean soup, maybe a homemade pizza, and something with the elk meat I have in the freezer. So I know I'm not much help in the menu department this week, but hey, some weeks are like that! I love reading all your menus and visiting your sites (I need more hours in the day).
I did make a very quick meal the other night that everyone enjoyed. I made thin spaghetti noodles. During the last 3 minutes of cooking I added chopped broccoli, and sliced carrots to the water. Earlier I sauteed chicken. I combined the noodles, chicken and veggies in a bowl and added some Kraft Asian sesame dressing to it. Tossed and served it. Less than 30 minutes and it was so good. Even good as a leftover.
Over the next few weeks my hubby is asking that we low-carb it...(how can a woman with Italian blood low carb it...). He wants more veggies...anyone have any great links or good recipes?
With Joy UNquenchable,


  1. One of my hubby's favorite low carb meals is our Italian meatballs. Instead of eating with spaghetti, we will get the low-carb tortillas and make wraps. Yum! We did low carb a while back, and I'm tying to remember more of the things we did. Lots of chicken or tuna salad - and you can add extra veggies there, and eat wrapped in lettuce. (Get good dark leaves - the iceberg has no nutritional value.) Um, lots of wings - we love the tequilla lime ones you can get from Sam's (and probably Costco). I'm drawing a blank thinking of more. Just lots of protein and veggies, skipping the bread, pasta and potatoes! I do have a recipe somewhere of a pizza quiche that is low carb. FULL of cheese, and oh so yummy! If you want it, let me know!

  2. Mmmmmmmm, I want to eat dinner with you! Cabbage roll are so yummy, but the kiddos really don't care for them. I fixed a sirloin roast with dijon/balsamic marinated asparagus and a salad. Basketball season kicks off tonight, so we'll be doing the crock pot thing on game nights.
    Have a fabulous week,
