Monday: Barbecue Chicken, Cheesy Potatoes & Green Salad
Tuesday: Moo Shu Pork over Rice
Wednesday: Roast Beef, Potatoes, & Carrot
Thursday: Beef Tacos (using left over roast), Black Beans, Salsa & Chips
Friday: Broccoli Cheese Soup & Biscuits

I've never had Moo Shu Pork but I saw Rachel Ray make this and it just looked so good! And since pork loins were on sale for 1.69 a pound (yes, that's a good deal!) and Fareway cuts and packages them as you ask - Moo Shu Pork went on the menu!

My Cheesy Potatoes

5 medium sized potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch
1 Tbl Butter
1/2 cup diced onions
1 stalk celery diced
2 cloves garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 paprika
(any other herb seasonings that you'd like i.e. sage)
2 Tbl Flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
4 oz American cheese (approxiately 4 slices)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Slice potatoes and microwave until slightly softened (or else they take forever to bake!). Saute veggies in butter, add seasonings, saute, add flour, cook for a couple minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, then add the milk. Melt in the cheeses.

Stir the cheese sauce in with the sliced potatoes. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan, and bake covered in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Take off the cover and bake another 10 - 15 minutes.

The cheesy potatoes sound really nummy + nothing from a can or a box.
