The Monday Menu: January 18, 2010

a bowl of eggs
It’s been a weird week around the country. I’ve been having trouble focusing on the here and now in my life as I think about the here and now of online friends and friends of friends who are hurting and of all the hurt and pain going on in Haiti. I’ve been looking for ways to help, ways to show I care and ways to be more appreciative of what I have and am blessed with daily. I’ve have been focusing more on my family, but I have also volunteered myself and commented on sites that are donating money for comments. Commenting is easy. We should all do it. I want to do more, and the road to recovery will be long, unfortunately, so I know I will have a chance. I just need to figure out the when and the where. I can’t wait to share!

Monday – Wine-braised chuck roast, roasted red potatoes and carrots

Tuesday – Flatbread pizza with prosciutto and basil, spring mix salads

Wednesday – Tequila lime chicken fajitas with all the fixings, leftover Spanish rice

Thursday – Corned beef in some fashion. I can’t decide between egg rolls, traditional with cabbage or reubens

Friday – Seared Ahi tuna steaks, steamed rice, ginger garlic green beans

Recipes from last week here at Food for My Family this week: Potato Leek Soup and my thoughts on how you can cook more often. I’ll be sharing our fish tacos this week, a reader request.
