The Next Four Weeks of Family Meals

I recently posted the last few weeks of our family meals...  I thought I would offer a glimpse into the future of our family table. 
Tonight Adam cooked dinner while I cleaned and rearranged the children's toy area.
We had rice, steamed vegetables (cauliflower, mushrooms, peas and carrots) all smothered in peanut sauce.

So, I am just going to list the dishes I have planned starting with tomorrow's dinner (Firday, Febuary 18th):

Beans and Greens Tacos with Goat Cheese (vegetarian)
Spring Rolls with Shrimp and Peanut Sauce (sea food)
Pumpkin Soup (vegetarian)
Egg Rolls with Sweet and Sour Sauce (pork)

Spaghetti (vegetarian)
Quiche with Zucchini and Caramelized Onions (vegetarian)

Beet, Arugula and Feta Pizza (vegetarian)

Sloppy Joe's with baked Potato Wedges (beef)
Fish Cakes (sea food)
Gorgonzola Linguine with Toasted Walnuts (vegetarian)
Roasted Chicken with Winter Vegetables

Spinach Stuffed Manicotti (vegetarian)
Chicken Soup with Dumplings
Venison Stew with Cranberries
Pan Fried Hawaiian Pizza (pork)
Pomegranate Pork Loin with Red Cabbage
Taco Soup (chicken)
Baked Sausage with Apples, Potatoes and Onions (pork)
Fireside Winter Salad (vegetarian)
Ginger Plum Baked Chicken with Barley Salad
Tofu Cucumber Salad (vegetarian)
Pork Roast with Ginger Plum Sauce
Chicken and Shrimp with Artichokes and Capers (sea food)
Spinach Soup (pork - it has bacon)
Risotto with Mushrooms, Peas and Cheese
Spaghetti with meatballs (beef or venison)
Sweet Potatoes Quesadillas (vegetarian)
Brussels Sprouts, Chicken and Rice
Pizza Night! (toppings to be decided)
Baked Fish with Tomatoes, Bell Pepper, and Yogurt (sea food)
Pumpkin Soup (vegetarian)
Made from Scratch Mac and Cheese (vegetarian)
Sweet and Sour Pork
Caramelized Onions and Whole Wheat Spaghetti (vegetarian)
Shrimp with Zucchini and Gnocchi (sea food)
Old Fashioned Mushroom Soup (vegetarian)

This menu moves around a bit - adjusting for pot lucks or other events that arise.  This experiment in meal planning has led us to discover new family favorites, such as the Spinach Stuffed Manicotti, that will most stay in our dinner rotation.

Happy Eating Everyone!
