Mike has two menu requests for this week -- sweet and spicy beans, and the rice/kale casserole. Luke wants Really Simple Goulash. For the rest of the week, I have skinless chicken breasts, hamburger and odds and ends. Hmm. I have a lot of potatoes.... I have a lot of brown rice.... Ooh, I have a big bag of frozen veggies (carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.) So,
Friday: rice/kale/mushroom casserole -- like it says, kale cut into strips and sauteed in olive oil, sauteed sliced mushrooms, and pork medallions, spiced with garlic, salt and pepper, maybe some Worcester sauce, mixed with steamed brown and wild rice. Yum!
Saturday: Chicken Primavera -- made with frozen veggies, but still yummy and very easy
Sunday: Shepard's Pie -- probably just hamburger, onion soup mix, and frozen mixed corn/peas/gr.beans, topped with mashed potatoes.
Monday: Sweet and Spicy beans -- four kinds of beans, onions, sweet pepper, cajun spice and brown sugar, and chunks of sweet potatoes.
Tues: Pasties -- the real Yooper thing. With rutabagas from the garden.
Wed: Really Simple Goulash (noodles, hamburger and tomato soup) -- Luke's favorite meal.
Thurs: Simple General Tso's Chicken
(with sauteed instead of deep fried chicken, that is)
I think I have everything I need except some pork medallions for the rice/kale casserole and the sweet potatoes for the Sweet and Spicy Beans, oh, and I need fresh ginger and garlic -- under $20 or so, I think.
