Weekly Menu

This week we've got some crazy weather predicted.  Today 70, tomorrow about the same, Monday 86!!!! then Wednesday is 55.  Can you say, "CRAZY!"  Anyway, enough weather reporting.  When I got the new issue of Everyday Food mag in the mail this past week I got so excited.  As I flipped through it my excitement grew.  It has a section called the Grocery Bag where they have 5 easy weeknight dinner meals along with the grocery list of items needed for the meals.  I got excited because for 3 of the meals I already have pretty much everything needed. Leave a comment here and let me know if you try any of these meals and what you think of them, particularly the Tuesday and Thursday meals. Thanks!

Saturday--Steak pizzas with peppers and onions*
Sunday--Pork tenderloin with roasted fall veggies* (parsnips, onions, and brussels sprouts)
Monday--Buttercup squash pasta with bacon and sage (yes, butterCUP squash, it's a cute medium sized, colored a lot like an acorn squash squash, with a sweet flavor)
Tuesday--Chicken Enchilada Pasta  (I really hope this one tastes good.  It had several positive comments.)
Wednesday--Chicken lo mein*
Thursday--Penne with Artichokes (another new meal that I hope turns out yummy)
Friday--Caramelized chicken noodle soup A filling, hot, and healthy meal to eat before going to Trunk-or-Treat :)
*These meals are from the November 2011 issue of Everyday Food


  1. We've made the chicken enchilada pasta at our house before. SUPER yummy! :)

  2. Thanks, Nina! I was wondering how mixing the green and red enchilada sauces would work out. What brand of sauces do you like?

  3. Hmmm...I am not sure what they're called. They are in glass jars and I know what they look like at the grocery store. I know, not much help. I will have to pay better attention the next time I buy some.
