Dinner Diva Menu Week of 7/5

I trust everyone had a gorgeous Fourth of July to celebrate. I'm still on a marvelous vacation in the northwest Wisconsin woods, and am writing this week's menu from here. I've been completely spoiled here, and my meals have been planned, prepared, and served to me each day. I have an aunt who aptly calls this "Pampered in the Pines." But with all this pampering, I've kind of gotten out of the habit of planning and preparing meals. Here's to a week of transition!

Sunday: Breaded Fish, cole slaw, roasted potato wedges

My mom's cooking tonight (amen!) but here's a good fish recipe if you want one:

coleslaw: combine 1 12 oz bag of coleslaw, 1/2 bottle marzetti's light coleslaw dressing, and 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds

Potato wedges: Preheat oven to 400. Cut several small potatoes (I use 1 1/2 potatoes for each person I'm serving) into wedges (8 wedges per potato). Combine wedges, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Bake at 400 degrees for about an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Monday (vegetarian): Artichoke Pizzas with Lemony Green Bean salad
We'll be on the road tonight, at the mercy of what is convenient at the time...but this looked really good for a vegetarian meal!

Tuesday: On the road again tonight, but try this one if you'll be cooking: Asian Shrimp and Chickpea salad:

Wednesday: Baby Back Ribs, corn on the cob, roasted applesauce, asiago cheese bread,30311,1728659_1736204,00.html?viewdate=06_29_2009&iid=edit-grill-062909&PromKey=XET

Thursday (vegetarian) Yay! Going out with best friend Angie tonight (haven't seen her in about a year). If you're stuck at home, try this quick and easy pasta dish:

Italian Ravioli Casserole

Friday: 1-2-3 Jambalaya

Saturday: Leftovers or Pizza
