Menu Plan Monday: Week of December 1, 2014
Thanksgiving has passed, and now it’s time to get back to routine – at least until the next round of holiday festivities!
If you’re trying to keep things healthy this year, check out the Elf for Health Challenges started by my blogger friend (and fellow RDN) Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean. Today starts the second week, which includes challenges like eating the rainbow and going makeup free. What a great way to stay on track, have some fun, and make new friends this holiday season.
This week I’m excited to host a group of women from the Westchester Hadassah group in my home to show them how to keep their holiday party food and meals on the lighter side. I will be demoing an appetizer, entree, and main course, which will include mushroom tartlets, pistachio-crusted salmon with my orange-ginger cranberry sauce, and a mixed berry crisp. Other than that, this week’s meals include my Meatless Monday black bean burgers, a Nutritioulicious-looking quinoa salad from Megan over at The Housewife in Training Files, and a warm and comforting stew.

Tonight I’m making Sweet potatoes stuffed with beans, chicken, and salsa for a post this week 🙂
I can’t wait to hear how your Healthy Holiday Cooking Demo goes!!
Yum! That sounds great. Enjoy and can’t wait to see the recipe. Thanks!
Sriracha black bean burgers sound great! I could go for one right now 😉
Maple glazed fish sounds delicious!!
Thursday is my off night too! Would love to know what recipe you use for the stew….
Isn’t it great having a night off?! I’m still trying to decide – will probably make a combo of a few I’ve found. Will report back!
Sounds like a yummy week! Your demo menu sounds delicious!
Thank you Melanie!
Those burgers sound amazing! I hope you had fun with the demo!
