Welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! It’s March, but it doesn’t look like it here when I look out the window to several new inches of snow from the weekend. Still, the forecast shows that we will reach 30 and possibly even 40 this week, so winter’s days are numbered …
I hope you all had a nice week. It was good here. Saturday, my oldest daughter participated in a flute choir at state ISSMA contest. I also got to play for two soloists, which is always enjoyable. And the weather cooperated for the trip down and back, which is an added benefit! We even worked in a stop to Trader Joe’s on the way home — fun.
So,the week ahead looks quiet, which is welcome. Here is the menu plan:
Monday: Quick and Easy Balsamic Salmon — another new recipe, although there’s not really a lot to it — just some seasoning for baked salmon. I was spoiled at Disney by having salmon available pretty much every day. My husband also keeps mentioning that his health coach (part of the employer’s I-assume-Obamacare-mandated/encouraged-health-coaching-don’t-get-me-started) keeps saying he should eat more fish. I know it’s healthy, but I just find fish a pain to cook/bake. But, about a week ago salmon was on sale at Kroger and I bought a bag. We will see how it goes. Also, a friend told me she bakes salmon in parchment. So I may try that.
Tuesday: Chicken stir-fry: I just cook a chicken breast or two, a bag of alfalfa sprouts, a chopped carrot or two and snap peas (in the freezer from last summer’s garden) in soy sauce, and serve with rice
Wednesday: Wendy’s Chili — with a package of naan bread from Trader Joe’s
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie — one of my favorites
Friday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies — so easy; I make this a lot.
Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a couple of carrots, a couple of potatoes – put in a roasting pan, then top with 1/3 c. olive oil and a packet (actually I use 1/2 packet) of dry onion soup mix. Bake 45 minutes at 450.
