Menu Plan Monday: March 31 – April 6, 2008

March 31, 2008

Menu Plan Monday 

Several recipes listed this week are holdovers from last week as we went to a friend’s house one night, ate out on Sunday, had a vegetable night ( I got a little over excited at the local fruit & veggie stand) etc.  We did try the Tuna Cakes and Roasted Red Potatoes with Bacon & Cheese last week.  Everyone liked the tuna cakes.  The potatoes were good also, but I would give one caution.  If they are larger new potatoes, then cut them smaller than quarters.  It took forever to get them soft, and I cooked them 20 minutes longer than the recipe called for, with at least half of the overall cooking time at a higher temperature than called for.  We also made the Creamed Spinach Ravioli and the Easy Creamy Baked Asparagus.  The ravioli was just okay to me, but the asparagus were a BIG hit.  My daughter absolutely loved them!  We will definitely make these again.  Best of all, they were EASY to make, and QUICK, to boot.

Here is the menu for this week:

Monday:  Pulled Chicken Sandwiches (I am substituting chicken breast for the thighs since I already have it), fruit (holdover from last week)

Tuesday:  Teriyaki Pork Chops, Crunchy Asian Broccoli Coleslaw, Dessert (The coleslaw is a new recipe we’re trying that was a holdover from last week.)

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Cheddar Baked Chicken, Steamed Broccoli, Seasoned Rice

Friday:  Dinner with friends…I am making an ice cream dessert and if it’s good, I’ll let you know next week!

Saturday:  We may not be home for dinner, so I am leaving it unplanned.

Sunday:  Leftovers
