Monday Menu

Okay, Readers, I could use a little feedback here. I’ve been publishing these weekly Monday Menus for nearly a year now, in the hope that people would comment with some of their own meal ideas, and we could all make meal planning a little more fun. Making a commitment to posting the menu each Monday has been hugely valuable for me–it’s become a weekend habit to outline the week and often get the grocery shopping done, too.

But since people haven’t been moved to comment much, I’m considering changing Monday’s post in the future. I know we will continue to plan our menus, and maybe I’ll continue to share them some or all of the time, but I’m thinking instead about reviewing some of the recipes we try from our favorite magazines and cookbooks. We usually put new recipes on the slate and some are winners, and some are…not. What do you think?

Finally, in the next few weeks I’ll be working on a Recipe Index of all the recipes I’ve posted. It’s long overdue, but soon you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for without searching the archives.  I hope you’ll find it useful!

In the meantime, please do let me know whether you find these menus helpful, or if there’s something else you’d like to see instead. I always appreciate your comments!

But hey–here’s what we’re cooking this week!

Monday: Polenta with Fried Eggs and Swiss Chard

Tuesday: Pasta pesto

Wednesday: Turkey burgers, homemade macaroni & cheese

Thursday: Pizza Margherita

Friday: Crab & Shrimp Cakes, remoulade sauce, salad

Saturday: Korean short ribs, rice, Asian-style slaw

  1. I do enjoy your Monday menus! But I would enjoy your comments / thoughts on recipes you’ve tried and how you tweaked them, or would tweak them next time (perhaps more so).

  2. I love hearing what is on the menu but I would like to know how you come with it, did you just want to try this recipe or did you have the ingredients or was it something else?

  3. An index of all the recipes you have posted is a good idea. I can never find a particular recipe you have posted in my archives. Also your idea on new recipes you have tried is a good one.

  4. I, too, enjoy seeing what’s on your menu but I would also read with interest the new recipes you are trying and your opinions on those recipes. I wish I had time to post my menus AND read cookbooks/magazines and try the recipes. Somehow, the reading and cooking seem to regularly win out!
