This Weeks Eats 4.15.13

Edited to add that I'm heartbroken about what happened in Boston today and am grateful all of our Oiselle team runners and everyone I know that ran the marathon is okay.  Sending thoughts to those who's loved ones were hurt in this tragedy...

I forgot to mention that for our Oiselle girls night out to Skillet, I tried poutine for the first time.  I'd heard the name before, but wasn't quite sure what it was - from Wikipedia: a typical Canadian dish (originally from Quebec), made with french fries, topped with brown gravy and curd cheese.  

Um, yeah, that was pretty good.  As was my burger with bacon jam and, one of my absolute favorite food items, blue cheese.  Although I think I was sweating bacon and felt like I needed to go on a fast for at least two days afterwards.  Can't wait to go again!

  • Monday - Pizza
  • Tuesday - Green Curry Turkey Meatballs (pushed this one back from last week 'cuz we felt like taking the kids to Red Robin!)
  • Wednesday - Chicken and Veggie Kebabs with hummus and quinoa (for the veggies we use red onion, zucchini, peppers, cremini mushrooms and drizzle 'em with olive oil and Grill Mates)
  • Thursday - Country Club Chicken and rice (a surprisingly tasty recipe I found via Pinterest)
  • Friday - Spicy Avocado Enchiladas (I always double the sauce for this recipe and freeze half, so all I have to do is assemble the tortillas and filling!)
  • Saturday - Seven Flavor Beef (yes, again.)
  • Sunday - Baked Ziti (trying a new recipe from Cooks Illustrated found via Pinterest)

By the by, I've still been linking up with Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers - go check out other great weekly menus here.  And I started linking up with Rachel at In No Simple Language, so check out the great menus here, too!


  1. Yummy menu! The Veggie Kebabs with hummus and quinoa no chicken please :) sound delicious! Do you make your own hummus?

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. I have made my own hummus in the past, but just buyin' it this week :)

  2. This menu would probably give me heartburn - but it looks amazing. Bacon jam... i've heard of it recently... I guess I ought to try that one out one day.

  3. That Country Club chicken looks amazing...love me some bacon!
