My March Madness Menu Monday

I love sports and my absolute favorite time of the year is March. This is because the NCAA Basketball Tournament includes the most exciting games you see all year! If you haven't watched the tournament before, please I beg you, just watch one game starting this Thursday. I promise you'll have a great time :) And I'll be your best friend if you cheer for this team!

Now since I will be busy watching basketball games the latter half of the week, I am going to focus on easy meals and my freezer that I stock with left-overs.

Here's my plan:

Tuesday: Irish Stew--kids hated the dish I made last year so we are going authentic this time--and sauteed kale with garlic

Wednesday: Grilled Salmon (weather is supposed to be good, if not, I'll saute it) with a simple salad * Note--Not Copper River as you can't get this right now sadly :(

Thursday: Take-out (first night of the tournament--thinking really greasy, really bad for you--Buffalo Wild Wings? Or Snuffers?)

Friday: Cinci Chili (left over from freezer) and spinach salad

Saturday: Panini sandwiches (thinking pumpernickel with pepper salami  and swiss cheese) with some left-over fire roasted tomato soup

Sunday: Stuffed Turkey Burgers with sauteed swiss chard

Okay, I'm the little angel on your shoulder being helpful...

Remember to do the salmon early on Wednesday since we have Lenten services to attend.:-) In truth I hope hubby forgets so I can actually get the kids to bed at a decent hour for once.
