Weekly Menu 4/21 to 4/27

This week we’ll have to see how it goes – I have a lot of work to get done and Maddie has a late band practice one night.  Last week we had to improvise Thursday night – Maddie went to a Soccer game and I got home later than usual.  Todd started breakfast for dinner before we got home and had the bacon all done – so we didnt get to try Alton Brown’s Gyros.  We’re going to do those Monday night this week.  Here is the plan.

Saturday 4/21 – Homemade Pizza.  I use Wildtree pizza dough mix and it was dead easy.  Mix it up – knead for 2 minutes, let rest for 10 minutes, roll out.  I’ll set out italian sausage, pepperoni, sauteed mushrooms, cheese and sauce and let everyone build their own.

Sunday 4/22 – Grilled Chops, basted with honey, soy and garlic.  I’ll serve with roasted brussels sprouts and Maddie wants me to try a parmesan potato dish from this month’s Taste of Home.

Monday 4/23 – Tonight we’ll try to do Alton Brown’s Gyros again.  I’m super excited and found some nice Pita (a rarity around here.)

Tuesday 4/24 – Hamburgers on the grill with grilled zucchini and summer squash.  Yum!

Wednesday 4/25 – This is usually pasta night, but this is Maddie’s late band practice so I might grab a rotisserie chicken on the way home.

Thursday 4/26 – Day 2 rotisserie chicken and noodles.  I have the frozen dumplings we like in the freezer right now so that’s a great plan.

Friday 4/27 – Skillet Rosemary Chicken.  I modify this recipe some – I don’t have rosemary handy so might do something slightly different.  Honestly the chicken is great without the herbs, and I have lemons left from last week’s veggie box so that should work well.
