Menu Plan Monday: July 19-25, 2010

July 18, 2010

Comments on my last menu: The Lemon-Thyme Chicken with Sweet Gnocchi was half good.  The gnocchi was absolutely delish — even dessert-like — but the lemon in the chicken was far too overpowering.  The berry trifle was okay… I couldn’t find lady fingers so I used angel food cake instead.  So, two new recipes this past week but neither one was a big hit. Your mileage may vary.

This week I am pledging not to use the oven as it heats up the whole house.  Everything will be stove top or crock pot.

Monday 40 Garlic Clove Chicken with rice and broccoli

Tuesday —  Monte Cristo sandwiches.

Wednesday —  Chicken Caesar Wraps, served with fresh fruit.  Click here to see the recipe (pages 88-89).

Thursday Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta (doubled) with Caesar salad.

Friday — Family movie night.  We’ll order a pizza and watch a movie together.

Saturday — heading to a ball game tonight; dinner will be at the stadium.

Sunday — leftovers or snacking.
