Menu Plan November 28 – December 4

In the name of expanding our repertoire of weeknight meals, I thought it would be fun for the FATKitchen to experiment with reader recommendations.  Every so often, I will build our weekly menu plan around recipes from a featured cookbook or blog.

Our first weekly feature comes from Malka who suggested that I look at Rose Reisman’s cookbooks.  Its been ages since I pulled out my collection (I have 4!!) of Reisman’s recipes so this was a perfect place to start.  We flipped through Weekday Wonders which promises quick-to-prepare meals that are also delicious and picked out 10 recipes that we haven’t tried before, but should.


Now that we have narrowed our chosen recipes to 6 and stocked our fridge and cupboard with ingredients, I look forward to a week of shorter prep times on some great looking dishes!  Check The Fat Project’s Instagram feed (@thefatproject) to see how the meals turn out this week – and every week!

This week’s menu:

Saturday: Date night!  Dinner out for the adults, pizza in for the kids

Sunday: Creamy Baked Beefaroni pg. 155


Monday: Veggie Burgers pg. 210

Chick pea burgers

Tuesday: Greek-Style Chicken pg. 176

Greek Style Chicken

Wednesday: Roasted Chicken with Plum Tomatoes, Green Peppers and Olives pg. 174

Thursday: Old-Fashioned Baked Macaroni and Cheese Casserole pg. 144

Friday: Tilapia with Coconut Peanut Sauce pg. 189

  1. I’ll see if we have the ingredients and if not we will pick them up this weekend. Thank you so much for the post and the recommendation Julia.

  2. Thanks for sharing my recommendations!!! We also made a version of Rose’s Mac and cheese but added canned Tuna so it was more like a tuna noodle casserole. It was even enjoyed by our three year old (we didn’t tell her about the tuna ?)

  3. For a breakfast option I recommend a version of no cook overnight steel cut oats. I use the quick steel cut oats you can find at costco – Bobs Red Mill. For a single serving for myself I mix the following in a mason jar:

    1/4 cup oats
    1 tbsp chia seeds
    1/2 cup milk/almond milk/coconut milk
    1/4 cup keifer (unflavoured)
    half a banana sliced

    I mix this all up and let it sit overnight in the fridge. In the morning I top with fresh cinnamon and some raspberries and/or blueberries.

    YUM! And so easy!
