Menus on Mondays: 10/22/12

Menus on Mondays is back this week on… Sunday!  I’m heading to the store today and thought some of you might be as well.  This week is a busy one for my family, so we are going to keep it simple.  I hope to clear out some pantry ingredients and keep the grocery bill to a minimum, but still have tasty, healthy meals.  Sound good?  Let’s get started!

Wednesday – Vegetarian
Roasted Cauliflower: toss cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt, pepper, and herb of your choice.  I like tarragon for this.  Roast at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, flipping once.

Friday – Optional Vegetarian
Butternut Squash, Proscuitto and Sage Quiche *to make vegetarian, omit proscuitto.  If you don’t mind the meat but don’t have proscuitto, you can substitute bacon.
Butter Lettuce with Radishes dressed in Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar


Saturday – Pizza Night, Optional Vegetarian
Whole wheat pizza crust from Trader Joe’s
Top pizza with leftover veggies, cheese and meats from the week.  I like to use a sauce blend of spaghetti sauce and a splash of BBQ sauce for extra flavor!
