Dinner Divas Weekly Menu Plan: Week 87
For a special occasion, Jenni Field from Pastry Chef Online promises this dip will be the surprise hit of your party! Muhammara is a Middle Eastern Dip that contains walnuts, pine nuts, red bell peppers and pomegranate molasses. It might just become your new favorite thing! Bonus, there is a video sharing how to put this together.
Classic beef and Italian sausage spaghetti and meatballs from Erin at The Speckled Palate is the ultimate comfort food. Tossed in a simple, flavorful tomato sauce and served over angel hair pasta, it’s hard not to love this dish.
The comfort food theme continues with my Chicken Tortilla Soup! It’s perfect for using leftover chicken and any spare corn tortillas you may have in your pantry. Weeknight soups have never been easier!
Porcini-Crusted Beef Tenderloin Roast with Chestnut Stuffing from Cheryl at Pooks Pantry is the perfect Christmas dinner! Dried porcini mushrooms ground into a powder dust the outside of the tenderloin, enhancing the flavor of this delicate cut of meat and traditional Chestnut Stuffing is the ultimate side dish for this elegant holiday meal.
Broccoli bacon pasta carbonara from Kirsten at Comfortably Domestic is an inexpensive yet impressive meal. Made with fresh broccoli, thick-cut pepper bacon, eggs, and plenty of cheese, this Broccoli Bacon Carbonara offers a refreshingly different spin on the classic spaghetti carbonara.
Of course, you must finish off the week with something sweet, so here are TWO delicious options. The first is this gorgeous Vegan Chocolate Christmas Cake from Pastry Chef Online. It is moist and chocolatey and orangey and delicious. A simple American buttercream makes an easy and festive frosting too!
Finally, get in the holiday spirit by whipping up No Churn Peppermint Ice Cream Milkshake from The Speckled Palate! You don’t even need an ice cream maker for this recipe. A smooth, pepperminty shake is the BEST holiday dessert!
