Weekly menu plan

March 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

This week I have decided to try recipes that I have clipped out of magazines but have never tried before. Unfortunately, I got the stomach flu last week so there were a few days I substituted canned chicken noodle soup and gatorade for the planned meals. Here’s to hoping everything on this list will get prepared this week!  Here’s what’s on the docket:

  • Monday: Potato vegetable medley with rotisserie chicken
  • Tuesday: Curried red lentil soup with dried cherries and cilantro
  • Wednesday: Baked shells and broccoli with ham and cheesy-creamy cauliflower sauce
  • Thursday: Barley salad with herbs
  • Friday: Homemade pizza (since I didn’t get to make it last week)

Potato vegetable medley with rotisserie chicken

(Taste of Home, Dec/Jan 2009)

Ingredients

  • 6 small red potatoes (I may use white potatoes because I already have them on hand)
  • 16 baby carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 1 small onion, cut into wedges
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 ¼ tsp seasoned salt, divided
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley

Directions

In a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray, combine the potatoes, carrots, onion, broth and 1 tsp seasoned salt. Cover and bake at 400° for 30 minutes. stir in zucchini and remaining seasoned salt. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley.

This recipe seems so yummy. I am just debating whether to use safflower oil or just use simple cooking oil. What are your thoughts? Is safflower oil worth the investment?

I have recently started getting Martha Stewart Living magazine, so you can expect to see a lot of her recipes on here. Here’s the link to the recipe.

I will probably add some fresh veggies and the leftover rotisserie chicken to this one. It sounds so yummy I can’t wait to give it a try! I have a feeling it might be a common summer recipe in this house.

Homemade pizza

(Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book)

You can find the recipe for homemade pizza dough here, or if there is a Trader Joe’s nearby, they also have excellent dough for under $2. I’m thinking I might make a veggie pizza, but am not sure about the toppings yet. What are some of your favorite pizza toppings? We’re always up for trying something new :)
