Menu Plan Monday – February 18, 2013

Welcome back for another menu plan from Angela’s Kitchen!  I am so glad to have you!  :)  Pull up a chair and let’s get started.


I am hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Angela’s Kitchen this week.  Yay!  The week’s theme is ginger, one of my very favorite flavors.  Mmmm…  I use ginger a lot in both sweet and savory recipes.  You will find the sweet yet spicy bite of ginger in Ginger Snap Biscotti, Chicken with Red Curry and Apples, Apple, Bok Choy and Carrot SlawThai Chicken or Turkey Burgers, Gingerbread Pumpkin WafflesKorean Shredded Beef Tacos, Pumpkin Coffee CakeChicken Mango CurryTeriyaki Burgers, Mongolian Chicken and Veggies, Gingerbread, Gingerbread CakeMandarine Orange Chicken, Ginger Snap Cookies, Peanut Butter Marinade, Moroccan Chicken TagineSpiced Apple Pancakes, Bombay Chicken, Kimchi, Sesame Chicken Veggie Salad with Ginger Soy Dressing, PotstickersSesame Slow Cooker RibsGingered Beef Broccoli Salad Bowl, Spiced Chicken, Sticky Chicken LegsSlow Cooker Pumpkin ButterGinger-Beef Stir FryChicken & Vegetable Curry, Dark Chocolate Walnut Ginger Biscotti, Asian-Style Ribs and Stir-Fried Bok Choy, and Chai.  Um, yeah…  That is a lot of ginger.  I did say I liked it!  What do you like to cook up with ginger?

Freezer cooking plan for the week:    Teriyaki Chicken and Crockpot Pea Soup with Ham are making their way to my freezer this week.  I might be packaging the soup in lunch sizes – I really like having soup for lunch.  Having it portioned out makes it easy-peasy to warm and bring with me in a thermos.
