Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday!

Aren't Monday holidays the best?  There is something magical about having that one extra day to just lounge around and be lazy....or productive if you're that type.  And then the week following usually zooms past due to the late start.  It's wonderful, right?

In conclusion: Can we have a Monday holiday every week?  It only seems fair.

On another note, I would like to send a thank you out to all of you for making the blog's 1st birthday a great one!  If you haven't signed up to win the Flour cookbook yet you most definitely should!  You can either click back to the previous entry or click {here} to enter!  It ends this Saturday, February 25th so make sure you don't miss it!

I'm going to go ahead and warn you that the meals for this week are completely random and don't fit together in any sort of way.  It's possible that I was incredibly hungry when picking these everything sounded delicious.

Oh well right?

I fell in love with this recipe simply from reading the name.  And then I read the ingredients.  Swoon.

One of Kaston's favorite soups is potato and leek (which you can find here).  Translate that into a pizza?  Talk about one happy camper.

My momma used to make spaghetti squash all the time back home and I had forgotten how much I love it until....I found this recipe.  I cannot wait to have this in front of my face.

By Thursday I can only assume our refrigerator will be stuffed full of leftovers.  But that's what Thursday is for, right?  I've been dying to try this "magical" vinaigrette.  So maybe I'll have it for lunch...maybe for dinner.  Who knows.  Who cares.

I have a very good feeling that after 4 whole days without meat the boys will be whimpering.  So to avoid tears I'll have to whip this guy up.  And I'm not complaining.

Beer-Braised Beef with Onions

Other Goodies:

I sure wouldn't mind these coming out of my kitchen at some point this week.  They look and sound heavenly.

Cheesy Winter Squash Muffins

Uhhhhh hello mushroom grilled cheesy melty thing.  I want you?

And to keep myself from feeling completely guilty about that ooey gooey deliciousness above I thought I should probably throw in something green that retained some sort of nutritional value.  I say that like it's a bad thing...but that's not true.  This looks divine.
