Menu Swap – January 12

Well, last week was definitely interesting and very educational. I have discovered that I cannot function without having a set menu plan for each day of the week. So, with that in mind this week has been planned right down to the last detail.

I have officially started my final stretch of school and will finally be a teacher as of April 2010. I am so happy that my module is full of a really nice and fun group of people, that has made it so much easier and has taken a load off of me. Now if I can remember to breath when ever I think of my teaching practicum starting up in February I’ll be doing great!

But with all of this in mind, I have decided that I am going to start of a Tasty Tuesday plan (if anyone is interested in joining in let me know – you don’t have to make the dish on Tuesday just post it by then). Every Tuesday I will make some sort of casserole or stew, or something, so that I can have leftovers for Wednesday night (I won’t be coming home from work on these days as I have class at 5:30). This week I have decided to try out a Chicken Pot Pie recipe, just sans the chicken and the chicken broth, so I guess it will be more like a Vegetable Pot Pie. This should be perfect as this week Fresh Ginger is hosting our Menu Swap and has chosen Locally Grown as our ingredient – so I’ll have to add lots of locally grown vegetables! I also plan on stuffing my sandwich with loads of fresh produce because I am dying for some good fruit and veggies!

    Your menu looks delicious! I clicked on the link for your falafel sandwich, which led to a whole exploration of GF flatbread/lavash recipes! I don’t miss regular bread much at all, but I really do miss a nice flatbread to wrap my falafel in. Now I have some exciting options. Thanks!
