Menu Plan Monday 3/23/09


Here's this week's menu! I'm trying a couple new recipes. Although, I've made variations of them before. The first is the Sauteed Cabbage with Apples and Cinnamon. This is a Robin Miller recipe from her Quick Fix Meals - cookbook. I love her premise of making one meal and then transforming the left-overs into another meal. She also totes the advantages of something called "meal packets." Go to Barnes & Noble and check out her book in person so get more of a feel for it.

Also, I turned to my current favorite cookbook Pressure Perfect for a pressure cooker soup recipe. That's where the Potato Cheddar Soup comes from. I love that I'll have this soup made in about 10 minutes. :)

The Old World Pilaf is a mix that I found in the grocery store's bulk food/organic section. It has brown rice, white rice, wild rice, lentils, dried peas and carrots in it. I figured I would give it a shot and see how it turns out. I'm planning on adding onions and garlic and some herbs, cooking it in chicken broth in the pressure cooker. We'll see how it turns out!

Monday: Poppyseed Chicken & Balsamic Roasted Carrots
Tuesday: Chicken Fried Steak (going to use panko instead of my usual Ritz cracker breading), Sauteed Cabbage w/ apples and cinnamon, Dilled Peas
Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie & Salad
Thursday: Potato Cheddar Soup & Salad
Friday: Grilled Salmon, Old World Rice Pilaf, & Garlicky Green Beans

Oh, I'm glad I found you!
I've always been too cowardly to try a pressure cooker but have been condiring purchasing one for canning. I never even thought about daily uses!
