Weekly Menu 6-18-2012

Matt printed out some suggestions for dinner after watching the Food Network one evening.  In honor of Father's Day I plan to indulge him all week.  They may not all be healthy recipes but they sure look good!

While you read this post you may choose to play Tyler's latest favorite song in the background.  He calls it the "Set the World on Fire" song.

Monday:  Spanish Spaghetti, Texas Toast & broccoli
(The Spanish Spaghetti was awesome.  Everyone enjoyed it.  I omitted the saffron threads and used garden Rotini instead of the thin spaghetti.)
Tuesday:  Grilled Chicken with Mustard-Tarragon Sauce, green salad, Tomato and Corn Salad, fruit & kalamata olive bread from Fresh Market
(The Grilled Chicken was a hit with the kids minus the mustard sauce (I however, loved the mustard sauce.)  The tomato and corn salad was a bit too vinegar-y for the kiddos.  They took big bites expecting just corn and tomatoes.  yikes.  It'd be good for a summer potluck though.)
Wednesday:  Baja Style Fish Tacos, chips & salsa
(These were DeLish!  Everyone loved them.  I substituted Tilapia for the Halibut at the request of the supermarket fishmonger.  (Halibut is EXPENSIVE!)  This was the first time I've fried food since my brief stint with a Fry Baby in college.  The oil took awhile to warm up but once I got the fish floured, battered and in the frying pan it was a piece of cake.)
Thursday:  Corn and Poblano Lasagna, fruit, left-over kalamata olive bread
Friday:  cook-out at a friend's house
Saturday:  Chicken Fried Steak with White Gravy, potato dish, fruit & bread
Sunday:  pantry meal or left-overs
