Menu Plan Monday: August 10-16, 2009August 10, 2009
Comments on last week’s menu: Last week I made a conscious effort to use the oven as little as possible. In view of the fact that we are having a heat index that exceeds 105 degrees, I think it would behoove me to make that same effort this week.
The Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps that I fixed last week were quite good, although not having the lettuce inside the wrap made it seem as if I had used too much ranch dressing. next time I will either reduce the amount of ranch or make the recipe as it’s written and tell my kids to suffer through it.
A caveat for anyone who wants to try the Corny Salmon Cakes: it is VERY IMPORTANT to get the boneless, skinless salmon. I could not find this at the Wal Mart and so I grabbed some salmon that did not say “boneless” or “skinless” on the label. I rationalized that if it had bones and skin in it, it would say so, right? WRONG! I opened those cans and was thoroughly disgusted. Itty bitty vertebrae, hair-thin bones, and slimy skin. Eeeeeuuuuw! Honestly, I have seen cat food that looked more appetizing. I ended up picking out all of the offensive parts (of which there were many) while ranting under my breath that such a product should not even be sold for human consumption. Lesson learned.
Now, on to this week’s menu:
Monday — we are meeting some friends at a Mexican restaurant for dinner this evening. Ole!
Tuesday — Caesar salad, spaghetti, and a variation of this basil pesto bread made in the toaster oven
Wednesday — cell group & VBS this evening. We will eat an early dinner out somewhere.
Thursday — priest chicken served with white rice and broccoli
Friday — Family movie night. I don’t know yet what we will be watching, but dinner will be the usual light fare.
Saturday — we will be dining out.
Sunday — leftovers or snacking.
