Every week something comes up where I don't make one or two of the meals that I've planned. This week was no different! From last week's menu plan we had the chicken tortilla soup (yummy as usual), the cheesy chicken manicotti which was pretty good (it would have been better if I didn't use canned chicken, but hey I wanted to use it up!), and the salmon filets. I have to say that the star of the week was the salmon. I just put olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and some fish seasoning crumbs on them and they came out great. I had enough for my Mom to eat dinner at my house, and she said they were like something from a restaurant. Seriously, I can never make fish and those turned out so well, I'm thinking I'm going to make them again this week. They're still on sale ;)
On a side note, I had to make a breakfast casserole for a ladies' group I went to, and I made this recipe for Amish Breakfast Casserole, and I think it was really yummy. I guess a lot of cheese and potatoes will do that to a meal, but really I wanted to recommend it in case you ever need to make something for a breakfast/brunch gathering. The cottage cheese is totally hidden and keeps the eggs really moist and soft.
Monday- Last week I had bought everything I needed for the Rachael Ray Drunken Tuscan Pasta recipe (and I have to say it was so ridiculously expensive. Once I try it I will need to substitute some things, because I seriously must have paid close to $20 for this one meal, um, Yikes!!) and I never had the chance to make it yet, so this is first on my list.
Tuesday- I have some ham and some canned asparagus (which my husband will not eat, unless it is cooked in something) so I am going to try this recipe for Asparagus and Ham Casserole. I also have a bunch of rice, so this uses all things I already have tons of.
Wednesday- The baked salmon again! It was a winner and it's still on sale at Acme this week.
Thursday- I had reviewed the Bruschetta Chicken Bake recipe before here. It's another one of our "tried and true" favorites.
Saturday- Out! For my brother's birthday, happy birthday Eric!! :)
Sunday- Italian Pasta Bake from Kraft food and family. It wouldn't be me if I didn't use one of their recipes, right?
