menu swap for march 17th (coconut)



I am so excited i found this idea. It gives me a chance o try so many new foods and recipes by focusing my whole weeks menu around one ingredient. I kinda feel like Iron chef.

monday: chicken strips, french fries, and a fresh salad

tuesday: cheese quesidila with coconut mango salsa

wensday: grilled steak, coconut risotto, and asparagus

thursday: pasta with cilantro coconut pesto sauce and caprese

friday: coconut brown sugar ribs, baked potatoes, and a salad

saturday: Seared Pork Chops with Coconut Rum and Caramelized Pineapple Sauce, white rice and steamed carrots

sunday brunch: cheese blintz, and bacon

dinner: nice plain chicken noodle soup to give our palletes a break before the next exciting ingredient (cant wait :))

i will also bake coconut pineapple bars on the 16th for desserts this week
