    Hello menu peeps!!!! How is everyone? I'm kicking back enjoying all 3 of my boys at home!! Love it!
    This past week's menu has kinda gone out the window. My DH smoked tri-tip one night, and the next we had tri-tip paninis with the leftovers. Needless to say, next week there will be menu repeats!!!

    Here's my menu. Share yours!!

    Saturday - Parmesan Chicken Fingers or Filets with mashed potatoes and corn.

    Sunday - driving to AZ to take eldest DS back icon_sad.gif 10 hour round trip drive!!

    Monday - Easy Ham Carbonara with salad and bread

    Tuesday - Slow-Cooker Boardwalk Italian Beef Sandwiches and potatoes

    Wednesday - Browned butter ravioli with salad

    Thursday - leftovers or stretch or something!!!

    Friday - out to eat.

    C - Menus are to be broken, trust me. With kids at home, just enjoy, sit back and have fun. I know when friends stop by ... everything changes. But, like all of us ... I think we all have back up plans, or things on hand we can make and can adpat to. Just enjoy the time with the family!

    Back in a bit

    Happy Saturday Everyone!

    Well back with my menu. Hopefully this week will go a bit smoother. C, I bet your tri-tip was good. I love that cut on the grill or smoker. And the paninis I bet were awesome. Since my tomatoes are coming in like gangbusters ... expect tomato and fruit almost every night in some way.

    The one thing over the last 2 weeks I did accomplish was stocking the freezer: a couple of loafs of bread; 1 batch 4 mini meatloafs; froze my peppers (whole and roasted); eggplant (breaded and roasted); 5 containers of my vegetable soup; my smoked chicken and pork; pub cheese spread; mini ham and green pepper pizzas; and made 6 chicken and black bean burritos.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    SAT ...
    Me: Mangrove snapper pan fried w/tomato cucumber salsa; broccoli cauliflower salad; grilled potatoes

    SUN ...
    Lady #4: 3 meals to be delivered Mon am
    - Baby back ribs; a herb, non-mayo potato salad; bean salad
    - Lamb gyros on a skewer; all the extras as a salad (feta, cucumber, tomato, lettuce); served over couscous, with tzatziki on the side; with fresh mango and mint dressing
    - Fresh corn chowder; muffalette sandwich
    Me: BBQ pork sandwiches topped with red onions and pickles; fries or the rest of the broccoli cauliflower salad; watermelon

    MON ...
    Ladies #1 and #2: Oyster poboy's; coleslaw; clam chowder; fresh mango
    Me: Chicken and cheese ravioli, w/mushroom broth; tomato salad; fruit

    TUES ...
    Out w/a group of friends for happy hour celebrating their engagement. Not sure where or if it will include food; so, as a back up plan - Salad w/tuna, capers, greek dressing, tomatoes, eggs, cucumber, olives, etc.

    WED ...
    Lady #1 and #2: Chicken cordon blue casserole, served over herb rice; broccoli; romaine salad w/lemon parsley vinaigrette - Lady #2 wants pasta vs rice; corn vs broccoli; fruit vs salad.
    Me: Burrito (my freezer stash; made with my smoked chicken, black beans, corn, salsa and spices), served over lettuce w/sour cream, salsa, and cheese; melon salad

    THURS ...
    Lady #3: Out
    Me: Out w/gf, I planned her bf's party, so my pick - her treat, TBD

    Me: Friend over for dinner, roasted chicken potatoes and onions w/balsamic dressing, 1 dish wonder; big salad

    Breakfast: yogurt, cottage cheese, fruit
    Lunch: Soup and leftovers
    Don't forget to clean out your pantry, fridge, and freezer ... there is always a meal waiting to be made!

    Do you have a recipe for the Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole?

    C - here it is, sorry I didn't post the link earlier
    http://www.food.com/recipe/creamy-easy-chicken-cordon-bleu-without-the-work-394458

    I need to make 2 slight changes to the dish. I normally add 1/4-1/3 cup white wine to the soup mix. But it isn't necessary. I am listing it as an option.

    My second change is I like to add 1 teaspoon dijon mustard to the soup mix. Again, I am listing it as an option. I like it, but a couple of my friends don't, so again, an option.

    I have made it with and without. My friends like it without, because it makes a thicker sauce. I like it with the wine, because it adds a little tang and makes the sauce a bit thinner. Either way works.

    I have also added 1 cup of fresh mushrooms before too which is good but not necessary. Just another option.

    I usually serve over rice, but again, you can just serve as is.

    Hi,

    I've also done a chicken cordon bleu casserole but I think with a different recipe; in any case it can be a great way to use up odd bits of leftover meats.

    Another very simple cooking week for me because I had to plan it in about 5 minutes when I realized I needed to jump at my best opportunity to get some groceries bought!

    Sat – Ana's Honey and Soy Glazed Salmon with green onions and almonds, bok choy, brown rice; I think I will broil the salmon instead of pan-frying
    Sun – invited to friends’ house; will probably take the easy way out and just bring wine
    Mon – Mexican Tomato-Bean Soup With Corn Dumplings; probably will just make cornbread rather than the dumplings, and may add poached eggs to serve (did not make last week because of an unplanned distant airport pickup that evening)
    Tue – leftovers from Arabic Green Beans With Beef with leftover barley/spelt (all set in freezer)
    Wed – shredded chicken with BBQ sauce, cornbread, green beans
    Thu – tuna melts (in tortillas), with broccoli
    Fri – pasta with parsley pesto from the freezer; may add canned clams or something like that; with some kind of veg

    C - tuna melts are fantastic in tortillas. I use four tortillas often instead of bread. Less calories, easy, and just a bit different.

    You got to try it.
