Happy Monday Babes!

The first decent amount of snow has fallen & I’m loving the crisp, white view out my window.

I’ve got a delicious menu planned for this week. Here’s a look at what’s cooking.

Monday– Easy Double Bean Burgers with Avocado Basil Cream

My boo will be busting out this meatless wonder. I can’t wait to try that luscious avocado spread!

Tuesday– Schnitzel Sandwiches

I’ll be making these bad boys sans the homemade pretzel rolls. I’m sure they’ll still be fantastic.

Wednesday– Beef Bourguignon Potpie 

This comfort food recipe takes a helping hand from pre-cooked beef tips, and the croissant topping looks divine.

Thursday– Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll Ups

My boo has a taste for Chicken Cordon Bleu, so I’ll be trying this fun recipe.

Friday– Beef Stroganoff

This recipe comes together in 30 mins. I’m already in love!

Saturday– Eat Out

Sunday– Cubano Sandwiches

I’ll be serving up these sandwiches with a cup of pre-made black bean soup. If you want to be a total Kitchen Babe, you could make this soup to serve alongside the sandwiches.

Weekly Dessert– Carrot- Coconut Quick Bread (#13)

I made these in muffin form this morning and I must say they are quite tasty.

Are you trying any new recipes this week?


Who’s Hungry

I’ve returned from my vacation in too-hot-for-this-babe California and I think the crisp Anchorage air has me thinking more clearly.

I’ve enjoyed writing these abbreviated weekly dinner menu posts where I just link a few delectable recipes. So, when my week is filled with only 3 or 4 home-cooked dinners, I’ll post the links to the few recipes I am making. When a week is brimming with at-home munching, I’ll post the full week’s dinners menu.

Please feel free to leave a comment telling me what you think about doing some of these shorter weekly dinner menu posts.

This week we’ve got a slightly Spanish vibe happening with…

  1. Chicken and Chorizo Rice from Food Network
  2. Chicken Pesto Sandwiches from Damn Delicious
  3. Chorizo Carbonara w/ Catalan Market Salad from Jamie Oliver

And for dessert, I’m throwing together some pastry using pre-made pastry sheets, almond spread, & fresh berries. I was massively inspired by the image below from Korena in the Kitchen’s post, Sourdough Danish Pastries, Part II, (but I’m all too lazy a babe to scratch make these treats).
