Meal Plan Monday: March 12th, 2012

I love weeks with good food holidays! I have plans for 3 kinds of pie on Wednesday (3.14! *snicker*) and of course St. Patrick's Day pretty much comes with a built in menu!

Salmon Patties

Vegetarian Taco Pie

Ricotta Stuffed Mini Bells with Spaghetti

Chicken with Mushroom Risotto

Chili and Cornbread

Falafel with Avocado Tzatziki Sauce

Corned Beef and Cabbage with Irish Cheddar Roasted Potatoes

Sloppy Lentils

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 1/2 cup dried green lentils, rinsed
2 1/2 cups water
24oz can crushed tomatoes

Heat oil in crockpot on high, sweat onion, pepper, and garlic until softened. Stir in chili and cumin powders and cook for another minute or two. Add the other ingredients. Stir to combine, cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4, or a combo of both... whatever works with your schedule!

Serve with sliced cheese on buns or toasted bread.
