Weekly Meal Plan
Sunday: I'm on my own
I have to run to the grocery store this morning to pick up a few things to observe Passover tomorrow evening. I'll grab something for my dinner from either deli or freezer case. It is my plans to go out extra early and return home to work on cleaning my kitchen really, really well.
Monday: Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti, Roasted Italian Vegetables
I have two big boneless skinless breasts. Friday evening last week I cut one into three nice fillets for sandwiches, so I expect to get two meals from these two breasts. I won't bread my chicken but will use the yogurt and Parmesan cheese method for coating it. Today I will also be preparing a meal for tomorrow. In our observance of Passover we treat it as a Holy Day and do not work. I'll serve the second breast over a salad one evening for supper.
Tuesday: Roast Beef, New Potatoes with lemon butter, Green Peas, Tomato Salad
I have a portion of rump roast in the freezer that I plan to thaw and bake. I'll steam the new potatoes and peas in the same oven. I'm going to try an all tomato salad, with red and yellow grape tomatoes in a buttermilk dressing as salad.
Wednesday: Beef Tacos, Refried beans and Spanish Rice
This is the meal John requested. I will look for cornmeal tacos that have no yeast in them to make our taco shells. Failing that we do have some flour tortillas with no yeast in them that I can use as a soft taco but I'm hoping to save those to make breakfast burritos one morning and dinner burritos another evening (dinner would use up any meat, beans, rice from our meal today) later in the week.
Thursday: dinner to be determined by grocery day
Friday: Cheese Souffle, Roasted Asparagus, Fruit Salad
There seems little point in telling you all how easily this may be made and not putting it on my own menu. I will have to double check my recipe. I'm pretty sure I can make this and stay within our dietary restriction this week.
Saturday: Red, Black and Blue Salad, Molten Lava Cakes
I'll use leftover roast beef to go on this salad, and will be sure to set aside some tomatoes, as well. If John seems especially hungry I may bake potatoes to serve along with the salads.
