MPM Jan. 10 – Food Network Edition
Last week’s menu plan was rough. I’ll be honest. I was excited about all of the recipes I had chosen. I was less than excited when it was all said and done. I burnt two recipes, never got around to another, and the other three were just kinda….eh… nothing to
write home about blog about! 😉 Anyway, it wasn’t necessarily the book’s fault. So I would still recommend you give it a peek.
I’m even more excited about this week’s menu! All our meals this week are courtesy of the Food Network (except for Saturday’s.) Yum! I’ve only tried one of these recipes before and it is amazing (the southwest chicken pot pie….scrumptious!) So hopefully, the rest turn out just as well.
On to the plan!
Monday: Plum-marinated chicken from Robin Miller with green salads and a vegetable
Tuesday: Dry-rubbed Steaks from Anne Burrell with oven fries and a vegetable ( I found a package of two tiny tiny tiny steaks at Meijer. Once cooked they’ll probably be about 3 bites each…but that’s ok. This recipe calls for huge pieces of meat but I just thought the combination of spices sounded good.)
Wednesday: Southwest Chicken Pot Pie (minus the cheese and using a pie crust on bottom and top!) from Robin Miller with a green salad
Thursday: Asian Chicken Noodle Soup from Rachael Ray (sorry there’s no link! It’s in her latest magazine if you want to find it. I’ve heard from a trusted source that this soup is a keeper!)
Friday: Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo from Robin Miller (I’m making this with just plain ol’ chicken, no sausage or shrimp)
Saturday: celebrating Jeremy’s birthday a few days early with an Olive Garden copycat recipe – Chicken Giardino
What’s on your menu this week?
