Sun, 04-07-2013 - 1:40pm

Sun: whole grilled green chile chicken; corn, mango and jicama salad

Mon: sauteed red cabbage with onions and smoked sausage, garlic bread

The rest of the days may vary, but here's where I've got it for now:

Tues: Chicken and mushrooms in garlic white wine sauce, egg noodles, veggie

Wed: roasted pork loin, roasted potatoes, glazed carrots

Thurs: fancy grilled cheese and tomato soup

Fri: Pork with coconot peanut sauce, rice, veggie

Sat: tabouli, lemon pepper or greek chicken

I've also got a craving for egg salad, so we may substitute egg salad sandwiches in there or have them for lunch Sat. lunch.   I also want to make a pineapple angel food cake.

Lasagna vs. lasagne For the flat, wide pasta and the dish made from such pasta, North American English speakers use lasagna. English speakers from outside North America usually use lasagne.

LOL? I'm the one who's laughing. Not only am I Italian American, but I lived in Italy and speak Italian although not as fluently as I used to.

It's only lasagne if there are more than one of them.

Maybe they own the sauce they are covered in?  : )

There's also no need for an apostrophe even if you don't mind getting the Italian incorrect. Unless the ravioli own something, of course.

Can I please have the chicken w/white wine sauce recipe  and the pork and coconut peanut sauce recipe?  Both sound yum!

Dh left yesterday for a week in California, so I've got to do all the kid shuttling this week so trying to make kid favorites and meals easy to prepare ahead or things that can be eaten at different times/reheated easily.

Last night - kids got to choose from variety of leftovers.  I just had pasta with olive oil and freshly grated cheese.

Tonight - meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans

Tuesday - store bought roasted chicken, rice and edamame

Wednesday - homemade lasagna, salad

Thursday - chicken fried rice with broccoli on the side (dd asked for this so I suggested she make it for dinner - she is normally a baker, but she needs to learn how to make meals!)

Friday - probably pizza or out to eat since dh will still be OOT
