Meal Plan Monday

So I had Zatarain's jambalya on my menu the last 2 weeks---I went to make it and realized we do not have any Zatarain's (I swear I had 2 boxes). So I made it from scratch using the recipe in The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook. It was more work than the box, but still super easy. I chopped onion and bell pepper and cooked it with a little garlic, added a can of diced tomatoes, 4 heaping teaspoons of cajun seasoning. I cooked the rice separately then added it to the "sauce" threw in shrimp and sliced turkey keilbasa. YUM!! We had so many leftovers that I did not make the baked ziti or the garlic quinoa salad. SO.....this week I am going to plan for more leftover days
MONDAY: Garlic quinoa salad wraps that we didn't have last week
TUESDAY: baked Ziti---I use the recipe from Robin Miller's Quick Fix Meals cookbook
WEDNESDAY: leftovers and salad (this is library storytime day)
THURSDAY: Tyler's Ultimate Meatloaf, sweet potatoes, broccoli
FRIDAY: french dip you MUST use the San Francisco Sandwich rolls and italian roast beef
SATURDAY: aidell's skewers
SUNDAY: leftovers
we pretty much have salad everyday

I've been wanting to try quinoa for a while now. Hopefully soon. Are you preparing the quinoa and putting it IN the wraps?

That skewers recipe looks delicious. Thanks for the link!

I love quinoa for breakfast. Never tried it in a wrap...sounds interesting.
