Menu Plan Monday 11/10/08


Oh, I am EXCITED about this week's menu. I'm trying a couple of new recipe that I am really looking forward to having! When I was in high school, ages ago, I had the opportunity to spend a month in Mexico City. While there, I got to have this meal at a family member of the friend I was staying with. It was sliced pork with an orange sauce over it. I've been trying to recreate this meal for a couple of years now. I've never even come close to getting it right. But Tuesday's Sassy Mojo Orange Pork recipe will be a close match (and if that fails I have another recipe to fall back on). Also, one of my favorite dishes to have at a Thai resturant is Tom Ka Gai, a coconut chicken soup. I know that the recipe I have won't be a hundred percent authentic (it doesn't call for lemon grass or kaffir lime leaves) but I know it will be good. I got the recipe out of my Better Homes & Gardens Biggest Slow Cooker Cook Book. Without any further ado...

Monday: Chicken Pesto Pizza (this one didn't happen last week so it's been pushed to Monday)
Tuesday: Pork with Sassy Mojo Orange Sauce & Spinach Salad w/ homemade Poppy Seed Dressing
Wednesday: Chicken Coconut Lime Soup, Egg Rolls & Salad
Thursday: Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes, & Carrots
Friday: Beef Enchiladas (w/ left over roast), Rice & Beans
Saturday: Crispy Oven Baked Fish (from BHG cook book) & T's Sweet Potato Fries
