menu plan monday / august 18, 2008

Before making the menu this morning, I asked DH and DD what they would like to eat this week. Mashed potatoes (DD), tilapia (DH), salmon (DH and DD), and fried chicken (DD), in that order. I don’t do fried chicken very often anymore, so will make oven “fried” chicken instead.

corn on the cob

rice w/ summer squash
sweet and sour cucumbers
green salad

Place the fish in a single layer on a baking pan lined with no-stick foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Drizzle the fish with lemon juice if you like, or add some to the Parmesan/mayo mixture.

Mix 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese and 3 T. light mayonnaise and spread on fish.
Mix 1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs, 1 T. basil, 1 T. oregano, 1 tsp. dry onion flakes, salt/pepper and sprinkle it over the fish.

Bake at 400*F for 10-15 minutes, depending on how many fillets you are using and how thick they are.

Lots of menu ideas here.

DD enjoyed a week-long 4H cooking class a few weeks ago. She enjoys cooking, especially baking. Last evening we were to take snacks to church for refreshments after the Atlanta mission team’s report. DD made cookie bars. All I had to do was empty the dough onto the cookie sheet, as the bowl was too heavy for her to wrangle. She cleaned up afterwards (a good thing). 🙂 Her first day of school is a half day, so I think we will make focaccia this afternoon. We haven’t tried this recipe before. Should be fun. And it is SO delicious dipped in olive oil that has been sprinkled with freshly grated peppper! Yum!

    I really need to get back to the menu planning. Everything is so much easier when I do it.

    It looks like your daughter is following in your footsteps with her love of baking.

    She will have such wonderful memories of you two cooking in the kitchen together.
