Menu for week of 1/24 - 1/30

We spent some time cooking over the weekend- made up a huge batch of all day sauce (or what some of my friends call gravy) and a big pan of meatless lasagna and a pan of manicotti, tons of meatballs for spaghetti and meatballs and/or meatball subs, and while we were at it mini meatloaf(s)- some to freeze, some for easy dinners this week.

Appearing on the menu this week will be:

Honey glazed baked chicken, brown rice, steamed veggies

Lasagna, garlic bread, pineapple salad

Chinese chicken salad- this time made with napa cabbage, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds

Meatloaf, mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans (how 50's, eh?) and probably green salad with some mango and a light vinaigrette, maybe poppyseed

Main dish salad with mixed greens, baby spinach, grape or cherry tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts, rough chopped, marinated asparagus spears, fresh mozzarella and proscuitto roll, sliced and quartered and topped with sliced grilled chicken breast that has marinated* for at least 30 minutes before grilling-  top with fresh shaved parmesan if desired
*use a 50/50 oil/vinegar ratio to make a dressing/vinaigrette with Italian herbs or use your favorite Italian dressing

Veggie stir fry served over brown rice

Eat whatever doesn't eat your first night aka leftovers

Anything fabulous on your menu this week?  We're always looking for new ideas, especially tnt.
