What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 10-16

Ah, February. You’re that tricky halfway point between Christmas vacation and Spring Break. We’re supposed to get 7-10 inches of snow in the mountains this weekend and all I can think about is jetting off to some tropical destination to bask in the sunshine with a piña colada in hand. Don’t get me wrong, I adore the snow and the mountains, but I desperately need a tan. Anyone want to join me for a little vacay?

In the meantime, this week’s menu marries flavors from around the world – Greek, Italian, Asian, Mexican, Indian. So it’s kinda like a vacation for your taste buds! And Thursday is lovers‘ holiday…so there’s that, too. We have big plans to stay home, drink wine and make heart-shaped pizza together (you can read more about that cheesy (literally) tradition here).

If you only try one recipe this week, make it the Chicken Gyros. We heart these! Yeah, preparing the homemade tzatziki sauce takes a bit of effort, but you’ll have plenty leftover to repurpose as dipping sauce for Tuesday’s Greek quesadillas. Two meals for the effort of one – that’s amore!

  1. Oh my gosh…. those chicken gyros are from Pinterest, right? They are so good!!! I’ve made them many times. The marinade is delicious. I like to put a little feta cheese on mine as well. My hubby also loves them!

    Yes, they are! I originally found the recipe on one of my favorite cooking blogs, Annie’s Eats. Her recipes tend to be rather time-intensive, but it’s always worth the extra effort. I’ve never made any of her recipes that didn’t turn out well. Of course, my version doesn’t always look as pretty as her pictures, but that’s another story….

    Our heart-shaped Valentine’s Day pizza was a big hit! At the last minute, I decided to try the Fig-Prosciutto Pizza recipe from Pioneer Woman’s blog (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/09/fig-prosciutto-pizza-with-arugula/) and it did not disappoint. The combination of sweet fig jam and salty prosciutto was perfection! I found the Dalmatia Fig Spread at Whole Foods. So delish!!
