Welcome back to What’s For Dinner! I am super excited to share this month’s menu selections and recipes. Remember, these are just my ideas, you can cook exactly what I prepared or you can take any part of my menu and add to it with your own tasty, healthy, family friendly foods. All of my recipes for the menus I create are part of this blog’s regular content, so if you’ve not yet subscribed to the feed, do it now so that you won’t miss anything!
The menu looks like this:
So here is what I cooked up! On Sunday I started what I call my ‘Power Cook’, where I prepare lots of food at the beginning of the week, so that it can tide us over for almost a full week. This weeks power cook included millet, brown rice, a big salad, 8 hard boiled eggs, and shrimp creole. After soaking my whole grains during the day I rinsed the millet and brown rice and cooked one in my rice cooker and the other over the stove. At the same time I hard boiled 8 eggs. The best way I have found to boil eggs is to put them in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to a boil and then turn the burner off and let the eggs sit for 20 minutes. When they are done I rinse with cold water and then put them in the fridge where they will be ready to make some egg salad, add into a salad or take for breakfast!
Next I created the green salad with all my favorite veggies; shredded beets, carrots, celery, broccoli, sliced onion and radishes included. This will be used throughout the week as a side dish. I then made the avacado herb salad dressing for the week and last but not least I made the shrimp creole. The brown rice I saved for making fried rice on Monday. The millet was served with the shrimp creole.
I hope you enjoy these tasty recipes, I know we did!! Send us a comment and let us know how ‘Power Cooking’ worked for you. We would love to hear about your experience!
