New Week, New Meals

Wow~The weeks are flying by here, but where the heck is spring?

Monday - Leftovers. No work for me and no school for the mini-chicks. We have lots of bits and pieces from last week hanging around. The Greek Villagers salad was a major hit from last week and I'll make up another batch for lunches this week.

Tuesday - KK has requested Stroganoff for our no-points dinner this week. This is really a glorified hamburger helper kinda thing, but ohhhhh soooooo yummy!

Wednesday - I've been pursuing the WW boards again and found this interesting chicken dish I'll serve with some rice:

2 (2 pound) broiler chickens, quartered (I'll use boneless, skinless breasts)
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp fresh minced ginger root
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
ground black pepper to taste

Place chicken into a slow cooker. Stir together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the chicken. Cover, and cook on low for 4 hours. (cooking time vary with crockpots)

If you like, thicken sauce on stove with a little cornstarch.

Thursday - Spaghetti. We never did get to it last week since I was off gallivanting around with Mrs. S. and the chickies were with their dad.

Friday - I found a good buy on some boneless pork roasts last week, and was very intrigued the sounds of Roasted Pork with Onion Stuffing over on AR. I love cooked onions and it just sounded so good.

Saturday - Stew. Leftover from a few weeks ago, currently hanging out in the freezer.

Sunday - One of my cooking friends mentioned that one of the ways she tried to help out her budget was to go meatless a couple of meals. I'm not sure I'm ready for "a couple" but, since I remember my Grandma Gregg making lentil patties (she was vegetarian) I found this recipe for a Lentil Loaf and thought it sounded pretty tasty. I'm sure it will bring back lots of childhood memories for me. I am so sad they quit making Nuteena. I loved that stuff!

Another big thanks to Mrs. S. for insprining to meal plan. It makes me think about points planning for KK (who, by the way got her 5% weight loss sticker last week!!) and I. It gathers my thoughts on all the wonderful recipes my cooking friends share and fulfills my need to plan things!! Good all the way around.

Chicken recipe looks very good. I hope you tell us how you like it. I'm going to add it to my to do list. thanks for sharing!

Hmmm, an area where Mrs. S and I do not mesh. (I guess we will leave it at George, vamps and bossing you around) Meal planning is an art and I am not an artist.

This would explain why I do not have a 5% sticker.

Hey, I don't have one either! ;) And, just for the record - in case anybody is wondering, I would be a very sad person without Mrs. S and Steph bossing me around!!

That Kona Chicken sounds really yummy! I think I'll make that next time I drag out the crockpot.
