Pinning and Planning – Week of Feb 10

With Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day in one week, I’ve decided to skip cooking dinner twice this week. Then, I also learned that Publix is hosting a pizza tasting Friday evening, which saves me from cooking another dinner this week.  Sweet.  Hubby is also traveling a few days this week, so I’m keeping things simple and you can’t get an easier than not having to cook or making a few casseroles.


Skinnytaste’s Quinoa “Fried” Rice didn’t turn out as tasty as I had hoped for our Chinese New Year play date which breaks my Skinnytaste heart.  I love most of her recipes, but this one needs a little more… umph.  So, I will try my hand at it again with some ginger, no fish sauce and a bit more veggies.

Here’s our dinner menu for the week:

S – Chicken Sausage Gumbo

M – Quinoa Vegetable Fried Rice and Mu Shoo Vegetable

T – Pancakes for Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday and also known as Pancake Day

W – Chicken and Mushroom Marsala Casserole

Th – Baked Ziti

F – Pizza tastings at Publix
