Menu Plan Monday #6


Week of December 11-17, 2006
NOTE: There are 2 Menus from me this week because I posted one last week, but didn't realize that there was no Menu Plan Monday last week. I especially wanted to share the Chicken Teriyaki recipe from last week.
Monday: Pizza
NOTE: Mondays are Pizza nights at OurHome. I am usually out during the day running errands and by the end I am usually too tired to think about cooking and I just pop in a DiGiorno Pizza for dinner.
Tuesday: Easy Pot Roast
Easy Pot Roast by Jean Watnabe Hee
3 to 4 pounds 7-bone chuck roast salt and pepper to season
2 Tablespoons oil
1 clove garlic, crushed 3 carrots, cut in 3-inch pieces
2 potatoes, quartered
2 onions, halved
1 can cream of mushroom soup (10-3/4 oz.)
1 envelope onion soup mix
Cut roast into 6 to 8 pieces (include bone in): season with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil and brown garlic. Add roast pieces and brown on all sides. Lower heat. Spread cream of mushroom soup over roast pieces: sprinkle onion soup mix over that. Place carrots, potatoes and onions in a skillet. Cover and cook on low heat about 45 to 60 minutes, or until roast and vegetables are fork tender.
Wednesday: Pot Roast Leftovers
Thursday: BBQ meatballs on a bun w/ carrot sticks
Friday: BBQ meatballs leftovers
Saturday: Calzone
Sunday: Calzone leftovers

Update from last week:



I modified the original Turkey Soup recipe by steaming rice on the side and adding it to the soup when it was done. I also added diced potatoes and seasoned it with salt to taste. This was my first attempt at making homemade turkey soup and it was really EASY and good!

We also had so much turkey leftover that instead of making the Chicken Teriyaki, I just made a batch of Turkey Fried Rice.

In addition, the Pot Roast and the BBQ Meatballs are on this week's menu again because instead of making those recipes, we ate out a couple of nights and I ended up making an easier meal another night. The chef was really tired.
