Dinner Diva Menu Week of 11/22

Sunday: Meal Swap meal from the freezer: Beef Lombardi (mine is made and frozen, but here is the recipe)

Monday: ribs, cornbread, applesauce, celery and dip

Making the cherry-zinfandel bbq sauce for the ribs again. My mouth is already watering in anticipation!


Roasted Applesauce

4 red apples, any variety
4 green apples
1 T. olive oil
2 T. honey
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. ginger
pinch cloves
pinch orange zest

Preheat oven to 400. Peel, core and coarsely chop apples. Toss apples in a large bowl with remaining ingredients until well coated. Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until apples are very tender. Using a large serving fork or potato-masher, mash the apples, leaving some chunks. Serve warm.

(Note, if you like smooth applesauce, blend the apples in your blender after they are roasted instead of fork-mashing.)

Tuesday: The streak continues: hot dogs and edamame. Hey, my kids make dinner for themselves once a week--who am I to complain that it's always the same?

Wednesday: grilled steak, leftover cornbread, steamed green beans

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving! (Please see my Turkey Day Menu post)

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: pizza
