Weekly Menu Plan - Sept 28-Oct 4


On hand this week:
pears
spinach
green onions
celery
onions
shallots
broccoli
potatoes
acorn squash
butternut squash
sweet potatoes

Sunday - Leftovers
We still had bits and pieces from last week, so instead of fixing a new meal, we decided to clean out the fridge!

Monday - Roast Chicken a la Normande*, Creamed Spinach, Mashed Potatoes and for dessert: Blackberry Pie and ice cream
This meal has been selected to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Michael and All Angels.

Tuesday - Fish Poached in White Wine*, Steamed Broccoli with lemon butter, Sweet Potato Chips
I would normally have leftovers or a casserole or stew made from the previous night's meal tonight, but I have some fish I purchased that must be used!

Wednesday - White Chili, Portuguese Corn Bread
This chili will be made with the leftover chicken from Monday.

Thursday - Leftovers
Time to clean out the fridge!

Friday - Pizza

Saturday - We are attending a wedding - so, we'll eat there!

* both these dishes come from my new cookbook Mastering The Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. The recipes, while not complicated, are a bit long to retype. If you are at all interested in learning about French cooking, I HIGHLY recommend this cookbook. The recipes are superb as are Ms. Child's instructions.

Love reading about your menu plans. Our evening meals are fairly simple around here... but I've found the key to success and low stress is to PLAN THEM!
