Happy new week friends! Spring is finally here! Yesterday we took a family walk in the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, and it was beautiful. We then headed over for a yummy New Orleans style dinner at Rabalais’ Bistro in Santa Paula, California. I had a delicious catfish po’boy, fried green tomatoes, deviled eggs garnished with pickled beets. It was a wonderful family day.
This week I am so jazzed for sharing our What’s for Dinner menu after being inspired by the fabulous New Orleans style cuisine from Rabalais’ Bistro.
What’s For Dinner
Monday – Slow Cooker Beans and Rice with Cucumber and Tomato Salad and sliced apples with a peanut butter caramel sauce.
Tuesday– Crispy chicken thighs, leftover beans and rice, and fresh melon for a treat. ( I will be eating a portion of arugula instead of the rice tonight)
Wednesday – Slow cooker turkey breast, slow cooker mashed potatoes, and siracha green beans. ( Carrots and cucumber sticks for our picky eater in the house)
Thursday – Leftover turkey breast cooked down with bbq sauce served on French bread with a big green salad.
Friday – Shrimp Tostadas or Bean for those who are not on team shrimp. We grew up eating tostadas weekly, so I am kind of excited.
Saturday – BYOS – A friend of mine has several children and somehow created a make your sandwich night, and they loved it. Of course, my boys are older, but hey, I figured why not? So this Saturday I will make sure to have plenty of good bread, lunch meats and cheese and a relish tray. They will probably just make PB and J, but I am kind of excited. I am thinking that Build Your Own Sandwich might become a weekly thing.
Sunday – Dinner Out – I love Indian food and what is not to love about supporting local family owned restaurants?
Hints and Tips for Making Dinner This Week
Hint – Cooking a large portion of pinto beans on Sunday evening is going to help save time through my week. Plus, I will have leftover beans and rice for my meal and plan on making a Paleo Version without beans for the freezer.
Tip: You can book a frozen turkey breast in the slow cooker.
