    Hello menu peeps, happy Saturday!!!! It's a gorgeous drizzly day. I'm sitting here listening to birds cheep and my DH arguing with his brother on the phone. A normal Saturday! icon_cool.gif
    Had a couple of monkey wrenches thrown into the plan last week, but most got made. This coming week is fairly calm, I think. Here's my menu.
    Share yours!!

    Saturday - Spicy Pineapple Pork Chili (Crock Pot) (never got made) - gonna have to try it stove top as my crock pot quit working! With rice and salad

    Sunday - Garlic Pesto Chicken and penne - also didn't get made. With salad.

    Monday - Caesar Salad with green beans

    Tuesday - Meatball Supper Soup - making extra to take to a potluck on Wednesday at work

    Wednesday - Busy Night Microwave Wet Burritos with rice and beans

    Thursday - Quick & Delicious Pork Chile Verde with salad and tortillas

    Friday - stretch room!

    Happy Saturday Everyone!
    Good week until last night; 2 friends had to work/sick, so cancelled dinner; today, forgot to buy the chicken to smoke. Thought I had some, but wrong cuts. And, tomorrow changed as well. But, I'll just have to mix things up. All recipes are on another site this week, sorry.

    C - sounds like a good menu ... I could enjoy a quiet week as well. This may easily change this week. Both Ladies #1 and #2 are out of town on a trip to St. Augustine with their church. So not too much cooking.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    SAT ...
    Out of town in the am to check on a friends housel but, he left me a fantastic stromboli from his fave restaurant. They are so good! Dinner
    ----------
    SUN ...
    Me: Catfish; black eyed peas; sauteed kale with onions, cantaloupe
    Lady #4: Only 2 meals this week to be delivered Mon am
    Good Old goulash; big salad; home made bread
    Chicken and rice (but making my own version of Campbells Soup); fresh mix of melon; and roasted tomatoes
    ----------
    MON ...
    Creamy vegetable soup (freezer stash from my CBC dinner); stuffed tomato with tuna salad; white bread (fresh made)
    ----------
    TUES ...
    Smoked chicken quarters; sweet potatoes; tomato, corn, and black bean salad or a salsa for the chicken
    ----------
    WED ...
    Leftover catfish as a sandwich, w/spicy creole sauce; fries; fruit
    ----------
    THURS ...
    Lady #3: Just her. A pot of Beef Barley; home made bread; and a egg salad to make sandwiches
    Me: Stuffed pork chop (stuffing is actually from Thanksgiving; I will add dried cranberries and nuts); apple sauce; pan seared broccoli
    ----------
    FRI ...
    Out
    --------------------------------------------
    I have plenty of soup, freezer burritos, pizza, leftover chicken and ham; so, I won't go hungry.

    Hi-
    We are looking forward to some temps above freezing this week for the first time in too long. icon_smile.gif

    Continuing to keep things simple in the cooking dept.

    Sat – spaghetti w/in-laws and friends “passing thru” on their way home from Honduras to Germany

    Sun – something similar to Low Fat Sausage Chili with bread

    Mon – baked potatoes with artichokes, olives, roasted garlic, goat cheese

    Tue – Lemon Butter Salmon With Capers and Asparagus – there is decent frozen asparagus (I wouldn’t use it the way I use fresh, but it’s fine for something like this which I think would be a long time to cook fresh) -- and polenta

    Wed – burgers on the grill, brussels sprouts, polenta fries with extra from Tue

    Thu – Mole Posole with tamale-type thing

    Fri – Red Pepper Risotto using roasted red pepper; made in the rice cooker; I will add some fish to steam at the end

    Those last two have been on previous weeks but not gotten made due to leftovers or other things. Might as well recycle! Have a good week! --M

    MCV, love the red pepper risotta. And, I am a fan a spuds for dinner. I am having fun stuffing them with just about anything. You can real make an entire dinner with them; add a salad or some fruit and to me it's a great dinner. Nice Menu.

    Yes, C ... lighter for me this week. I have some nice soups frozen; so I want to use them up and it a bit lighter a couple of nights a week. Even all my portions, I have cut down a bit. Trying to loose 15 lbs and just really get back in shape. I'm right at the border where I really need to get back up; and not go over.

    Not the biggest split pea fan, but it is good. That sounds delicious with the parsnips.
