Menu Plan Monday July 30-August 5

Monday: Cheap take out pizza from Mad Greek. Jeff has bagpipe lessons tonight and I have a to do list that's a mile long.

Tuesday: Santa Fe Soup w/tortilla chips

Wednesday: Asian Orange Chicken, rice, egg rolls, shrimp sauce (Thanks Carrie!)

Thursday: Lasagna, garlic bread, salad

Friday: Easy Baked Fish and chips, potato wedges (From Kraft magazine)

Saturday: Hamburger steak w/onion gravy, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans, salad

Sunday: Fish tacos, chips-n-queso (I'm still looking for a good recipe for the tacos)

I'm also looking for a gyro recipe if anyone has a good one. As promised, here' the dressing recipe I whipped up this week that was oh so yummy!

Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

1/3 cup mashed strawberries

3 TBS red wine vinegar

1 TBS sugar

1/2 cup olive oil

Whisk oil, vinegar, and sugar together until blended. Add mashed strawberries and whisk until blended. Come to think of it, I added 1 tsp more sugar after whisking it together because my strawberries were a little on the tart side. I'd say just add sugar to taste if this isn't sweet enough for you. Mine was tart with a hint of sweetness. Just the way I like it! You can use it right away or chill it to use later. I also made up a batch using balsamic vinegar but I preferred the recipe above.

Have a great Monday!

I think Annie, from My Life As Annie, has one she loves.

Hope y'all enjoy the Orange Chicken. Shrimp sauce... is this the the creamy orangish one? If so, do you make your own?

Oops, that reference to Annie was for the gyro. :o)

Mmm, that vinaigrette sounds so good! Sounds like a good week, and I got a little giggle out of the statement that you get your pizza from a place called Mad Greek, too funny!

Have a great day and a wonderful week!
