Dinner Diva Menu Week of 3/15

Happy Saint Patty's Day! The dog we had growing up, a beautiful, gentle golden retriever named Taffy, was born on March 17. I'm not too Irish, so that day will always be special to me more because of her than because of shamrocks. I have no special "green" dinner planned this week. Feel free to substitute if you wish (and send me the recipe so I can post it!)

Sunday: beef and broccoli lo mein

Monday: Meal Swap Day, my turn to cook: lemon pepper shrimp scampi, sauteed asparagus

Tuesday: meatloaf, onion roasted potatoes, salad

My best meatloaf recipe:
1 lb ground beef (the leanest you can find)
1 lb ground turkey
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (whole wheat preferred)
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1 teaspoon dried ground sage
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper

mix all ingredients, and place into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350, uncovered, about an hour. Drain and serve with ketchup.

>Reader-Suggested St. Patty's Day entree': Broccoli Chicken Divan

Wednesday: meal swap day, Jen's turn to cook (make meatloaf sandwiches today if you're not swapping....serve with broccoli slaw and commercial onion rings)

Thursday: Jambalaya

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: pizza night
