    Hi menu peeps! How is everyone this week?
    We have hot weather for April/May! Up in the low 90s today. Yipes - not happy about that!
    My Bunco party was a success! Everyone loved the food. Wish I could entertain like that more often!
    This coming week seems to be relatively calm, but you never know what might happen.
    Here's my menu plan for the week. Share yours!!

    Saturday - Leftover Ziti Pepperoni Casserole from Bunco, and maybe Grilled Cheese with Avocado and Bacon for lunch

    Sunday - Cinco de Mayo!! Gonna try some corned beef tacos using a corned beef in the freezer. With all the trimmin's

    Monday - Niku Jaga (Japanese Beef Stew in the Crock Pot) with potatoes and vegies

    Tuesday - Chicken Pot Pie With 2 Crusts using leftover ham and adding cheddar, with salad

    Wednesday - Simple spaghetti with meat sauce and salad with bread

    Thursday - leaving open for stretch

    Friday - out to eat or leftovers!

    C - sounds good. I have made mini CBC wraps. Used a bag slaw, added extra carrots, a vinegar dressing w/ caraways seeds; Durkee Fried onions for crunch; thousand island mixed with sour cream. And, of course the corned beef shredded. Added Swiss cheese too. We called this Mini Reuben or CBC wraps - flour tortillas.

    Your chicken in the crock sounds tasty as well.

    Glad you Bunk party was fun; that is what we try to do for our poker nights. Although we all pitch in cooking. But, it is just fun to try different things; and entertain for a card game night.

    When I grew up - Mom and Dad often had card game night, where they entertained. Nothing fancy, but lots of party food; it was always fun. Kids were always welcome. But we usually went to the TV or pool room (pool table)

    Weather than just having friends over for dinner ... we would turn it into a movie night, card night; and make it all fun party food. It was actually easier, and cheaper; and more fun.

    Back in a bit ... need to refine a few things - unfortunately, another very unpredictable week here; so, I need to be real flexible.

    Another crazy week. Still helping a friend with catering this week on and off; so, dinner will definitely change. Also, looking to do another evening or midnight fishing trip, which is always fun; but, is usually last minute notice. So, I decided to go with basic foods; and, things I could throw together quickly in a pinch. Heading back out of town again ... but just a 1-2 day trip, so flexibility is the key.
    Ladies #1 and #2: Off to Gatlinburg, TN with their church group, back Fri
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    SAT ...
    Soup (freezer stash - my vegetable soup); and salad or cheese topped crostini; also, have fresh melon for dessert

    SUN ...
    Lady #4: Three (3) meals to be delivered Mon am
    - Asian sesame chicken; sesame peanut noodles; steamed broccoli
    - Baked goulash made w/ground turkey, mushrooms, red and green peppers, with a spicy pepper jack cheese; and a classic green salad
    - Smoked salmon; baked sweet potatoes w/cinnamon brown sugar butter; roasted cauliflower, onions, and fennel
    - Loaf of bread; and a lemon tart
    Me: Shrimp cakes w/peach relish or fresh fish; baby reds w/butter and parsley; broccoli slaw

    MON ...
    Cajun caesar wraps (freezer stash chicken), w/black olives, romaine, tomato, onion, parm, caesar dressing; sweet potato fries; watermelon

    TUES ...
    Spicy Cuban picadillio (new recipe), served over rice; salad

    WED ...
    Leftovers/freezer stash. I have pork stew, meatloaf, or soup on hand

    THURS ...
    Lady #3: Family, not sure if I am cooking for them
    Me and friend: I promised him my leftover Cuban picadillio; fruit salad

    FRI ...
    Beach picnic with a couple of friends. I'm taking Ciabatta roasted veggie sandwiches (basil aioli, portabellos, onions, lettuce, red peppers); chick pea and olive salad; fresh fruit salad; and they are bringing cocktails and dessert. If the other couple decides to come, I may or may not make a shrimp spread w/crackers.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    And, don't forget to clean out your fridge, freezer, and pantry. There is a meal waiting to be made!
    HAPPY COOKING

    Hi everyone. Nice menus, as always.
    I was late trying to post my menus last week and not sure what was up but couldn't get into Food.com so finally gave up. Glad I got back in. Perhaps they were doing some work when I was trying.

    Last week I roasted a turkey and we had some form of turkey for several days after that.

    Menu for this week.
    Sunday -- I was at the shower for my grandson so we had Chili from my freezer when I got home.
    Monday -- Maple Glazed Pork Tenderloins with sweet potato and peas.
    Tuesday -- Harriett Bridge's Chicken Breasts with Rice and carrots
    Wednesday -- Baked Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, Salad
    Thursday -- Tomato and Barley Soup
    Friday -- Halibut, Leftover rice, salad
    Saturday -- Time to use up the rest of the leftovers.

    Have a great week. gayla icon_smile.gif

    Hi all --

    It's so true that you never know what might happen --- we ALL got sick last week with various forms of stomach flu, with symptoms you can imagine, and I was lucky enough to get ~24-hr fever, too. We are now on the mend, thankfully. I guess the upside is that you get some days off in the menu planning department, but I'm not sure it's worth it! I made up my week's menu in my head while driving to the grocery store, so there's not a whole lot of interest here (including 2 from last week). But better than takeout!

    Sat – cereal -- it was a safe bet

    Sun – feeling pretty good, so lasagna (pesto-type sauce rather than red) from freezer

    Mon – spinach/black bean quesadillas

    Tue – Freezer Ready Cornflake Chicken Fingers (making extra for freezer) with veg and maybe grits (I guess that would be kind of a corny meal)

    Wed – burgers with veg and chickpea fries

    Thu – salmon melts with broccoli

    Fri – veg stirfry with peanut-type sauce and fish, over rice from freezer

    I'm glad you're feeling better. Being sick stinks!!
    The pesto lasagna sounds good. Is it from a recipe?

    MCV, we all have weeks like that. Glad to hear you guys are on the mend. Whether being sick, or just running into things; sometimes a menu just doesn't happen.

    I think my rule is to have a plan; and have 5 things on hand in each category. Protein, veg, salad ingredients, and starch.
    These can be soups, freezer stash, sandwich items, leftovers, salads, etc.
    That way, you always have something to make or mix and match.
    But, agreed MCV, better than take out.

    Pot pies, pre-marinated chicken breasts, cooked rice, pasta, ravioli, leftover turkey and ham are always staples in my refrigerator.

    Hi,
    No recipe on the lasagna, just made up, and it was quite some time ago -- it had a bit of sausage, some mushrooms, and spinach, too.

    SC, I pretty much do what you do. We have salad every night with dinner, so that is a given, but otherwise I keep things available for when cooking just doesn't work out. Plus always having pasta and jarred sauce and something like canned clams to make a quick clam sauce is a good insurance policy, along with frozen veggies as backups to fresh produce. Healthier, cheaper, and quicker than pizza delivery.
